    Default Nfpa 1936

    Are tools manufactured prior to NFPA 1936 Standard on Powered Hydraulic Tools 1999 considered meeting the standard or only tools after 1999 ? When did Hurst quit manufacturing the 32B spreader ?

    No tools are considered meeting the standard unless they have been tested. The standard was not in place in 1999. Hurst quit the 32B about two yrs ago, but I bet if you really wanted one, your dealer could get it.

    Interetsing note on the NFPA standard, buy a compliant tool and put it in a system not compliant and then the new tool is also not compliant. It must be used as it was tested.

    I have a 32A I would love to sell! Only if I can get a lighter tool that does the same for even trade. Got anything for me Kevin?
