Would a 5500 carrying a Mammoth destroy the rigid tracks? It was one of the reasons I chose the flexible mats even though I have not needed them yet.

My maxtrax are black. The color doesn't matter much but when you send them shooting under snow having a 6 foot ribbon lanyard makes them a heck of a lot easier to find..DAMHIK [emoticon]

The "type of plastic" used in the maxtrax is supposed to be better than the knock offs... no idea if that is b.s. or not.
If you spin your tires you'll melt the teeth off of any of them.
They're supposed to be UV stable (I live at 8000ft - lots of UV up here).

I did have a buddy snap a genuine maxtrax and they replaced it no questions asked.

Yah, I was kinda wondering that one too...
But figure If those yellow plastic levelers hold up should be ok, as long as you don't 'Floor it' from the get-go...

Also, on the list is the Pull Pal... I got caught in sand and nothing really to pull/put a winch, if I had one, to connect... so on a beach, with the maxtrax and a winch w/pull pal should be good to go somehow. They also have to sand bags but you have to dig a hole and then fill it up and then dig again and fill it up again, sigh, I get tired of just typing it... LOL>.. but it's on the list too...

(Luckily, another TC was in the area and gratefully pulled me out...
Not sure Max would have helped but told they would...
