Redondo Beach, CA (Nov 15, 2012) – Badlands Off-Road Adventures, Inc. has released a “Winching Recovery Bandana” that contains all the information required for a winch recovery operation in a soft foldable format, which can be stuffed in to your recovery bag.
According to Tom Severin, President of Badlands Off-Road Adventures, “the bandana is a fantastic supplement to the Badlands Off-road Adventure’s Basic to Advanced Winching and Recovery DVD. The Bandana is packed full of useful information and is a quick reference in the field when you do not have a DVD player nor time to watch the full comprehensive 81 minute DVD.”
A winch is a useful off-road tool that can quickly become dangerous and potentially lethal to the operator and spectators. Proper use requires good working knowledge of safety procedures, safe riggings and inspection. Since winches are not used often, thorough training is a must to retain that knowledge. The Bandana serves as a quick reminder of the details learned in the training class and watching the DVD.
The Winching DVD covers safety related issues, basic operation, simple and complex riggings, stuck assessment, winch capability and minimizing environmental impact. The DVD provides broad working knowledge including the skill to assess each situation and the means to retain a working knowledge of winch use.
All the information in the DVD is packed into the Winch Recovery Bandana. The layout is easy and quick to access when faced with a recovery.
The Bandana layout follows the “Vehicle Recovery Plan” with pathways to more detail. A unique section of the Bandana, gives the steps for a “Winch Rigging Check: Walk through” so that you verify every element of the rigging before you commit to the pull.
Stuff this in your recovery kit and you will always be ready.
Badlands Off-Road Adventures will be stocking their Dealers soon. The Bandana can also be ordered at www.4x4training.com . Additional colors will be available in the near future.
