For starters the Portable Reciprocating saw with a Carbide blade for demolition works wonders on both structure AND vehicular extrication. That is what works best, then from there anything else is about the same.
If in doubt - Call us out

I demo a Lukas rescue UNI Tool that is self contained. I found with 40.400 cutting and 17,500 spreading forces trhis tool works great for many entry problem.
Hand operated unit requires no outside power source so it is great for rapid intervention team useage
Check it out at www. lukas.com

I see that you are a sales guy, so I understand the rapid intervention comment.
The Lucas UNI tool is not that great. My department has 2 of them, and the guy's in the companies would rather use them for wheel chocks, than put them to work on an extrication. For what we paid for them, we should have upgraded our saw-zall and chisel. It's just too limited,
takes too long to cut a post.
We should have had a demo before buying them.
