Ok, so I've got this far in the modification of my ground anchor. So far the costs are R140 for the 2 6mm plates and R150 to get most of the welding done.

(Then the dude who could weld stole tools & was found out and he bailed)

Ok so managed to get it done at a friend that does fabrication.

Meanwhile I've found a place and a way to mount it on the front of the Landy together with all the other winch tackle... That was a bit of a brain-teaser as I want to keep things in the same place...

But before I construct the brackets to mount it, I still need to do trials to see if it will self bury. If it does, and continues to "grou in en onder die grond-vlak" then I'm expecting to get about 2000 Kg hold, based on the surface area in soft sand...

Then I've saved around R6000 (excl shipping costs) to purchase a Pull-Pal" ground anchor from the States...

Now where can I test it???? Where is there soft sand near my house????? Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

I had my eyes on the truck arrestor bed in Alberton, but they've gone and built a bleeding new road through it...

DARN!

These days a teeny-tiny bit more slightly quicker....

Dunno... But I would stop at the edge, extend the winch cable and try in the soft sand... Otherwise I might get myself into a whole heap of recovery work EEK!

They must be at least 3/4 of a truck wheel deep I'm sure...

Hi C..

Die oorspronklike een, wat ek nou grooter gemaak, was wel n werkende, sagte-grond, grond-anker. Reg vir my voorige 4x4 wat by die middle-gewig klas van 4x4's ingeweeg.

Maar die Landy is n bul van n heel ander klas, (swaar-gewig) en ek weet sonder om die anker te vergroot sou dit te lig in die broek wees...

Ek doen al lankal naavrag maar soos ek ge-pos, is daar geen anker hier be-krybaar, en om een te kry sal ek moet invoer, en dis n bullike klop geltjies..

Toe kry ek die idee om te vergroot (te danke aan iets wat ek op Google gesien), bietjie sommetjies gemaak en ingeval. Maar dis nie te se n ge-modified ding gaan soos die oorspronklike een werk.... Lyk of dit gaan werk... maar.... Nou ja, soos hulle se "the proof of the "worsies" is in the eating" Ne...
