MAXTRAX was started on a remote beach in Far North Queensland in 2001 after Brad McCarthy nearly lost his beloved Land Cruiser to an incoming tide while stuck on the beach.
After looking at the existing options, all based on surplus from WWII, Brad knew there had to be a way to be a better way.
A few years and a few prototypes later in 2005, MAXTRAX launched the world’s first vehicle-specific recovery board, the MKI.
Fifteen years later with the MAXTRAX Xtreme, we’re still innovating and pushing the boundaries on a what has become new age of 4WD vehicle recovery.
Beach, Camping, etc
No one likes being in a messy situation in the middle of nowhere... good thing MaxTrax are here!
The original recovery board made for those who like to escape and go off-grid for weekends, days, months or maybe years. Tough, durable and nearly industructible.
