Mahindra launched the all-new Thar in the market last year and it quickly became popular among buyers. Ever since the delivery of all-new Mahindra Thar has started we have seen several videos of modified Mahindra Thar SUVs and off-road videos as well. Another type of videos that we see on the internet these days is SUVs getting stuck and getting rescued by another SUVs. Here we have a video of a brand new Mahindra Thar that gets stuck on a beach. The SUV was later rescued using a JCB.
The video has been uploaded by Nishant Nariani on their YouTube channel. The video starts with the vlogger talking about the situation. They were driving on beach on a weekend during low tide and at a specific place, there SUV got stuck. It is not known whether the driver had engaged 4WD while driving on the beach. However, from the video it is quite evident that, the SUV was stuck badly. It looks like the driver has been trying to get the SUV out for quite some time and it was stuck so badly that, all the wheels were buried in sand.
After several unsuccessful trials, the driver asked some of the locals to help and they came and started pushing the SUV back. As mentioned above, the SUV was stuck badly and even though there were so many people pushing the SUV, it did not move even a bit. The car has been stuck for a very long time and things were not looking good. The vlogger can be heard saying in the video, in some time, the tide will start coming in and if they cannot rescue the SUV by then, it will be washed away in the tide.
After some time, they brought a backhoe loader commonly known as JCB and he went to the spot where the Thar got stuck. As per the video, even the JCB driver was hesitating to drive on the beach as it is a heavy machine and if it gets stuck, things will be even worse. However after realising that they actually needed help, the driver agreed and finally pulled it outside the sand.
There are several things that driver did wrong in this video. It is always a bad idea to drive on a beach during low tide because, most of the time it is quite slushy and the tide rises rapidly and before you realise, you and your car both will be caught in the waves. One should always have a backup vehicle while going for such activities. If they were travelling in a group the other vehicle could have helped it get out.
Experience also matters a lot. The vlogger doesn’t seem like an experienced off-roader which also mattered a lot. While you are driving such off-road surfaces, it is always recommended to check it before driving into it. It is also a good idea to maintain a momentum while driving on such surfaces. Always shift to 4L before you get stuck. Using a 4L after getting stuck might not work at times.
