What brand of rescue tools do you use/prefer?
Our department went from Hurst to TNT this past December, and it's been wonderful... The TNT tools cut almost anything, and the rams grab well -- no longer a need for a plate on the rocker panel.

I used to use Hurst but with my new dept we have Amkus. tools are a lot lighter and more user friendly then the Hurst tool from the mid to late 80s Hurst makes quality tools but they tend to be a bit on the heavy side.

We used to use Hurst, but we have switched to using the Genesis system. It is much lighter and it fits our needs better.

Our department switch from a pheonix to TNT 5yrs ago.We brought in 5 different tools tested them all and TNT set the stanard the first night. We have a full system 4 rams,cutter, spreader, mini cutter, 5.5 duo power unit.Three more of our mutual aid departments have since purchased TNT. We did call in one of those departments two weeks ago on a head on crash because we needed more rams. It was great to be able to hook up to either power unit an keep on working.
