Re: Be careful when riding in the woods ! Caution graphic photos enclosed .

While back I seen pics somewhere of a 4 seater. A 3” to 4” diameter tree limb went through passenger front fire wall, through front and rear seats before punching a hole through the rear fire wall. Fortunately he had no passengers

Frank, that’s a very good point on the full skid plate protection!! Guess I never associated the skid plate with protection against this. I have the McNasty fender inlays guess it’s time to make a 1/2” thick UHMW full skid

Skids are great, but most of the ones I have seen are coming from the front where skids don't cover.

What protection do you use for that?

Direct pressure never a tourniquet unless you want to loose a body part. Tourniquet take very special training. Anyone can use direct pressure. Once started don't stop for serious injuries.

Good to know basic first aid and pressure points as well.

As answered, it’s a tourniquet (TQ). That’s one of my training TQs this the T written on it.

The application of a TQ is somewhat specialized, but not hard to learn. They are strictly for an arterial bleed that can not be stopped any other way. Just another tool for the box.
Just looking at the pic of the impaled leg, that does not appear to be anything needing a TQ. Leave the branch impaled, cut it back some for ease of transport. Pack entry and exit areas with gauze and haul him out to an ambulance.

What protection do you use for that?
I put these on my XP after the last thread about branch intrusion. They are pretty solid so I would think they should stop intrusion but I'm not positive. Certainly better than the thin plastic inner fender wells.

The McNasty aluminum front inner fender inserts protect that. I have those. Never really thought much about the under side until now

I know I trot out this story every time a thread about trees/limbs into the cab comes up, but I had it happen to me. Just want to point out the lodge pole pine that speared my old xp900 came through the wheel well, not from underneath the skid plate. Luckily I wasn't going fast enough to jab me, but it came within an inch of my inner thigh by the time I stopped. It is a real threat.

Re: Be careful when riding in the woods ! Caution graphic photos enclosed .

Which one, Axiom or McNasty, protects better and installs easiest? Are there others?
