Heavy Vehicle Towing

´╗┐Cookes are experts in heavy vehicle recovery; we supply a range of products to suit your needs. Incorrect use of recovery products can lead to severe injury or death, always ensure you know what you or others are trained and understand proper methods for recovery. 
When choosing a recovery strap, Cookes recommend that a 2:1 factor be applied to take into account any unintentional shock loading. So to recover a vehicle weighting 9,000Kg choose a recovery strap with a minimum breaking load of 18,000Kg.
