    Question Air Bags

    I had a conversation with my Chief the other day and he indicated that our department will be looking into purchasing some airbags for our new rescue truck. Since it has been some time since I have worked with airbags, how about some input here on what brands you like and what are the current feelings on low-pressure vs. high-pressure???

    Definitely take a look at the Resqtek Line of NT airbags. High pressure, hi-lifting heights and high capacity, they're unique. Very stable when stacked as you're able to lock them together with a threaded connector. My department just received ours last week, to replace an old Paratech system.

    Check out TNT high-pressure bags. I wouldn't go low pressure unless you were going to upright Tractor-trailers, or something like that.

    Metal, I would recommend the Paratech High Pressure. I would caution you on the rescue teq system.

    Call Perry Twp. Lake Cty. Ohio for info regarding a recent air bag demo. I won't say who the company was but they cause damage to a fire truck after trying to lift it and a bag popped out.
