they are a great bit of kit but heavy when full of mud, also look at treds and max-trax ..I have the standard waffles and a set of max trax and I use  the max trax more

They're great bits of kit, I've used them for making mini-bridges, ramps & short descents etc...they've also saved on vehicle damage...get some they're cheap for what they are.

Looking at 1220x310x38 waffle boards, would these be strong enough to take a car going over a hole or are they likely to break?

Or you could try these ...

 

http://www.neneoverland.co.uk/shop/brand/tred-tracks/tred-1100-recovery-tracks

 

Available in 2 sizes from Nene - NOT cheap ... but they do look strong.

 

 

These are rubbish took two into North Yorkshire this month and smashed both of them helping a skoda yeti,they do not flex and are only good in sand or snow.  I would NOT recommend these at all. Max trax do flex as do waffles.

I have 2 sets in the workshop, Had them bolted to the roof of my Fourtrak, Never used them but looked good on the roof! Never felt the need to put them in the Jeep. Might do now I have a roof rack to mount them too though. Plus they match the Green and Black theme which helps lol :mdr:

Great piece of kit in my eyes, always take them with us when we go out laning or to play days. Use them all the time when stuck, and most of the time they get you out. Would have been lost without them on two occasions when out on the moors, out on our own with one stuck vehicle, so would defiantly recommend getting some.

Got a pair of waffle boards from Tracmat some years back.

As with any piece of off road kit it is not the how many times you use them that counts. Better to be with them that without I reckon on certain trips I do.

Also useful as a seat around the BBQ, an impromptu table top etc etc. So much more than just a "waffle board".

I use waffle boards all the time to make steps and work platforms in factory's because they are such high grip, just never got around to cutting a strip off an 8x4 sheet to use off road. One day when I get 5 mins I will do, hopefully before I find myself in a remote location needing them. Lol.

I've got a set of heavy duty waffle boards. Took them to North Africa with the truck camper. However, didn't need them (compressor did its job instead). But since they have been extremely useful for walking across the muddy lawn. Ironically they were slightly too long so I cut a foot off them when they arrived. Those two 2-ft sections have been very useful in the camper - as a base for the outside shower and to put down in front of the rear steps of the camper so you aren't stepping directly onto mud.

 

So although I never got to use them for their intended purpose, they have been a good purchase nonetheless.

 

Steve.
