As the cheapest recovery tool on the market, the Ridge Ryder hand puller is a great, compact tool, ideal for occasional recoveries. Hand powered recoveries are always going to be hard work, but they are not only a much cheaper alternative than an electric winch, they are also a great alternative for the lone traveller. This Hand puller is no different, designed to get you out of a bind, and back on the road. The 3 meter cable in this kit has a massive 4 tonne breaking strain, and includes drop forged steel hooks. The body of the recovery tool is chrome plated, and a built-in sheave block helps reduce the strain on both the recovery tool, and yourself. Whilst this tool isn’t designed for high stress recoveries or regular use, it’s always reassuring to know that packed in with the luggage is that handy tool that could save you an expensive recovery.
