    1st review

    Here we go !! I know that talking about hydraulic cutting tools can stir up all kinds of drama. Its like debating the diffrences between chevrolet and ford. We are using the holmatro cutting tools at this time. The tools have worked great the cutting force is by far better than our backup tools. We are also using the "core" lines on the tools so there is only one line running to the tool. I know that there are alot of good tools out there but these are what we are using and they work great.

    These are the ticket. I really like how they run off the single line, and how much more power they have than our old set.

    this is the tool that every department in the country needs to own. my department has three sets of Holmatro rescue tools. the oldest set of tools is close to fifteen years old and is still performing like brand new. we also own two mini combo spreader cutters. we keep one set on the utility truck and the other on our second out engine. great tools and easy to use. they keep on working no matter how hard you use and abuse them.

    We use Holmatro rescue tools on 2 engines and our truck. I love them because they are so light and easy to handle, with all the power needed. We use the core system it is nice to only have one line, less likely to get in the way or tangled. I think the greatest advantage with this system is one person can pick up and move the entire system, for those days of being short on personel

    Best hydraulic rescue tools I’ve ever used. Their half the weight and twice the power of old rescue tools and with the core technology switching out tools takes only a second and is virtually idiot proof.

    We use a lot of the Holmatro tools. We have the small and large cutters,spreaders, and rams on our Rescue Company. We also utilize a Holmatro petal cutter and airbag cover. Holmatro has done their research and has created a great product.

    I've used Holmatro hydraulic extraction tools when I've been at clinicals with Lancaster Fire Dept. I was really amazed at how small and quick these tools set up, and how they could be taken off the truck and moved somewhere else in no time. Great tools would recommend them for any dept.

    I'm an extrication instructor and holmatro tools are by far the best tools on the market. They keep up with the changing technology and are always looking for ways to improve their tools. My department has a set that is 20 years old, it is the oldest unit our county and are still the strongest and most reliable. We are currently trying to purchase a new set and I can't wait. I have used just about every tool on the market today and holmatro is #1
