Holmatro Rescue Equipment

Holmatro is well known for their high pressure hydraulic rescue tools. However, they’ve got a couple of options for those of you who need to be able to get into confined spaces or remote areas where a hydraulic cable and generator/compressor are not available.

The self contained options rely on battery packs to produce a great deal of torque for spreading, cutting, pulling, and crushing duties. Depending on the model, they can offer a cutting force of up to 56,920 lbs

Holmatro also offers hand operated rescue tools. Depending on the model, these can spread and cut with a max cutting force of up to 56,920 lbs. They are lightweight and can even be used underwater.

Check the Holmatro line out at Warrior Expo East.

    I started in the Rescue business back in ’84 on a no budget all volunteer crew that covered 180 square miles, mostly in the mountains of the Northern Rockies. We started with manual spreaders and thought we were pretty slick ripping cars in half with coma-longs, wagon jacks, hand operated spreaders and hack saws in under 45 minutes. When these hydraulic spreaders and cutters came out that number went down to less than 15.
    I thought battery operated Sawsalls were nice – but this really makes these tools mobile. If they operate like what we have today, then the time to rescue will be even shorter, and possibly require fewer people to operate. Truly remarkable. I’ll take two!
