MAXTRAX was started on a remote beach in Far North Queensland in 2001 after Brad McCarthy nearly lost his beloved Land Cruiser to an incoming tide while stuck on the beach. After looking at the existing options, all based on surplus from WWII, Brad knew there had to be a way to be a better way. A few years and a few prototypes later in 2005, MAXTRAX launched the world’s first vehicle-specific recovery board, the MKI.
