A safer alternative to add traction weight to your vehicle From spring rains to winter snow, ShurTrax all weather traction products provide you with improved handling and control year round. You can add up to 300 lbs. of additional weight to your vehicle ensuring a safer and smoother ride for all road conditions. Our no hassle traction weight products come with a nozzle that attaches to your garden hose allowing you to fill it with water after you have placed it in the back of your vehicle. You can continue your daily activities including hauling items in your truck bed or car trunk since your ShurTrax can withstand up to 500 lbs. of weight.
What happens when the water in my ShurTrax freezes?
ShurTrax is durable enough to expand and contract during the normal freezing and thawing that occurs at and below 32- degree temperatures. We advise the consumer to fill ShurTrax with 3 inches of water as stated in the product manual, thus allowing sufficient room for expansion. The material is rated to withstand outdoor temperatures as low as -40 degrees Fahrenheit.
Will ShurTrax control "axle or wheel hop"?
Yes, very effectively. Adding 300 lbs. of weight to a half, three quarter or full ton pickup will definitely reduce axle or wheel hop.
How can I justify the cost of ShurTrax?
With proper care ShurTrax products should last at least five years. Even at Home Depot’s very low price of near $5 for a 60 lb tube sand bag, 6 bags per year, will cost you over $150 which is more than ShurTrax.
How much weight is added to the vehicle by ShurTrax?
Water weighs approximately 8 lbs. per gallon. This product is sized so the 3 inch suggested fill level will provide the following weight: LW-0036 = 100lbs; LW-0036-200 = 200 lbs; LW-0036-300 = 300 lbs. However, the consumer can add to or take away weight by adjusting the water level from 1-4 inches without harming the product.
Can I haul cargo on top of my ShurTrax?
Yes, the product is rated to withstand up to 500 lbs. of flat laying cargo. The only risk of damage would be if you placed sharp or pointed objects directly on the surface of your ShurTrax. The ShurTrax package warns the consumer of this risk.
Will ShurTrax slide around?
The water weight is sufficient enough to keep ShurTrax in place. However, "inching forward" during braking may occur so grommets have been molded into the design to allow you to strap or bolt your ShurTrax in place. We strongly encourage you to do so.
How durable is the material?
ShurTrax consists of two layers of material. The inner layer is a smooth water resistant material that provides a super high quality seal when molded together using RF (Radio Frequency) equipment. The outer layer is a very tough rot, mildew, and tear resistant material. This outer material consists of a woven nylon mesh through two layers of vinyl. The material is also rated to withstand outdoor temperatures as low as -40 degrees Fahrenheit (actual degrees, not wind- chill).
Can you explain the outer seal and baffles?
The outer seal is a very important part of the design. Dies were made allowing us to make one continuous outer seal and eliminate the use of seams. The baffles are also very important. The baffles prevent the water from surging or thrusting by keeping the water isolated inside four separate compartments.
What other uses are there for ShurTrax products?
Many of our satisfied customers report ride, handling and leveling improvements; transporting water for vacation, industrial and commercial purposes including use for agriculture; off-road traction; and controlling axle or wheel hop. Although ShurTrax is used for storage and transportation of water, it is not approved for drinking water (water is not potable).
What happens if I puncture my ShurTrax, and are there other accessories offered?
