    Default ResQ Tek

    Can anyone tell me anything about a hydraulic tool company called "ResQ Tek"? I am told that it is the former "Code 3" tool... anyone have a set or has anyone used them? Likes, dislikes, problems, etc.?

    Thanks for the info, but this isn't for Orrville FD... we are well entrenched into Phoenix Rescue Tools and I would rebel if they tried to switch!

    The name came up from someone that wants to do something with a local race track that I am involved with. I had heard that the ResQ Tek is the former Code-3 tool... and I am just trying to get up to speed in case someone asks my opinion.

    Met Med,

    I know, I know!! I remember the conversation while I was there. I still say that you will be able to do the job with any set of tools out there. The question really lies in, HOW does it get the job done?

    ( i was there primarily for the NT ResQ Bags anyhow)

    GO PHEONIX!!!

    Be Safe,

    Mike
