Equipment Needed at different Star Levels

Post by DuncanField » Sun Jun 14, 2015 7:34 pm

With every promotion comes new roles and responsibility to yourself and others. As you progress through the different star levels the below items is the minimum necessary equipment needed at each level. I have noticed on recent drives that people have been lacking in having equipment at hand. Please make every effort to acquire the below items for your level. If you have more then this is a bonus.

Basic Equipment one needs to carry for offroading :

New Bee :
1. Compatible offroad vehicle with snatch/recovery hooks at both front and rear.
2. Compatible Radio
3. Tyre Pressure Gauge
4. Tyre Deflator
5. Flag pole including flag

Few bee :
1. All of the above
2. Rated snatch strap (kinetic type)
3. 2 Rated Shackles preferably soft shackles
4. Shovel
5. Air compressor


Intermediate :
1. All of the above.
2. GPS Navigation system
3. 3 Ton Hydraulic Jack
4. Base Plate for the jack.
5. First Aid kit
6. Fire extinguisher.

Advance :
1. All of the above
2. Good offroad GPS and knowledge of its use
3. Tools kit and repair kit
4. Spare vehicle fluids and critical mechanical / electrical components
5. Zip Ties

Marshalls:
All of the above plus everything else you know you need.

Hope this helps :thanks:

Hi Duncan....

I would suggest the flag pole to be a necessary item from Newbee level... First time drivers with the club can be excused... but from then a flag pole should be mandatory. Just my 2 cents.

Also, promotions should be done once the member has the required tools in addition to their driving .... (I know members will hate me for this :ymdevil: ) but I have experienced it.... There is nothing better than having your own tools... It will help you even on the streets or to help strangers...

You ask a question, and when you get the answer, you say "don't teach me"?
Which other bug bit you besides sand bug? :D

Hi Chaps.

As I like to look at least 2 dunes ahead :drive:, and sometimes I go with unexperienced Friends in the desert 8-| I would like to get an Hydraulic Jack

What do you suggest?
On rocks and mud I am used to this type of jack: http://www.maharashtradirectory.com/tes ... e-Jack.jpg

But I've seen some people here carries an high lift jack.

What's best and why?
