Nice one! I like the discussion of the equaliser strap.

I didn't hear you mention the importance of using the right weight for the snatch strap, or which one this is. It's very important that everyone uses the right sized snatch strap for your Foz. There is now an legal industry standard for snatch straps that states the breaking strain must be 2-3 times the laden weight of the LIGHTEST vehicle in the recovery. It must be rated for the lightest vehicle, regardless of whether it's the stuck vehicle or the vehicle doing the pulling.

For our little Subies, that means 5t breaking strain is best, or 6t at the most. Never let anyone use a 8t snatch strap on a Subaru!

Thankyou!

Yes this is something I was told about on my reddit post, as ECHO63 mentioned!
Definitely something I'll be addressing within my recovery gear.

Thanks again :)
