We posted a little video from a few of our customers in the Hutchinson, Kansas area. Check it out…
In this post we mentioned shooting a demo video of GoTreads getting a 10 ton military vehicle out of the sand. Well, here is some of that footage for you to view!
One of my favorite activities growing up was playing with my toy army trucks in the sandbox. This past weekend, I got to take that fun full scale! We borrowed a 10 ton military transport truck and drove into a sandy river bank.
Now a 10 ton vehicle in loose, damp sand is an interesting combination. Our concerns of not being able to get this massive vehicle built for off-road stuck well enough to require GoTreads were soon evaporated.
Pinto, Inc. is currently seeking distributors for GoTreads in Canada, UK, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, and Argentina. If you would like to distribute GoTreads in one of these regions, please contact us for further information. GoTreads can be marketed year round as they work in snow, mud, and sand. If your customers drive a vehicle, they will eventually need a GoTread!
The new site is live! After much work, we are happy to finally have the re-vamped design up and running. We’ll be adding more content over time as we receive more and more “customer stories” of how GoTreads are helping people out of stuck situations around the world. If you have at testimony you would like to share about GoTreads, please let us know. We would be happy to add it the site and send you a free gift as a thank you.
If you have any questions about our new site, our product, or our company, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are just a phone call or email away. You can also contact us via FaceBook and Twitter if you are into the social media side of the internet.
Thanks for checking out GoTreads!
“Pacific Marine Mammal Center (PMMC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of marine mammals stranded along the California Orange County coastline and to increase public awareness of the marine environment through education and research. For over 40 years we have been saving hundreds of seals and sea lions each year in need of medical attention, all of which are rescued on local beaches. Because of the hazards that come with driving on sand, having Go Treads with us on rescue calls is critical. We are grateful this product exists, so that we can get ourselves out of the sand and back to the hospital with our patients as quickly as possible.”
While traveling back from Canada with my wife and two small children, we pulled off to the side of the road in rural North Dakota during a heavy winter storm. In an attempt to stay out of the roadway, I ended up getting both passenger side wheels of my Land Rover into the top lip of a very steep ditch that was hidden by snow drifts.
We have been using Go Treads for years at our loading dock. Usually our snow removal service is slow to respond to our needs after big snow storms. That’s why we have Go Treads. They are a big help to us when truckers get stuck trying to leave. Our loading dock schedule is so tight that there isn’t time to have trucks stuck in our dock space. We put our Go Treads under the wheels and the driver pulls away like the snow isn’t there. They always work for us. By the way you should see how beat up they are … but they still work. We keep expecting them to break from so much use but they keep on going.
Just a line to let you know that I had occasion to use the large Go Tread to extricate my high centered and buried Neon from a plow up ridge of snow in my drive way. With minimal digging to make room for the Go Tread I placed it behind the tire and backed out with out spinning at all.
