    Default ResQtek

    Has anyone had any experience with resqteks's line of extrication tools? I saw them at FRI 2006 and was very impressed but I havent met anyone with real life experience with their tools.

    I've used them extensively in some pretty good drills(we use heavy equipment to bend cars into real life scenerios)and I'm quite favorably impressed.We're a Holmatro dept but the G4 combi of resQteks was a VERY nice tool with several improvements over it's predecessor. I'd try to arrange for a demo so you can form your own opinion. T.C.

    We tested the ResQtec line of hydraulic tools at our department, in a head to head evaluation against the brand that we currently use. We were impressed enough to purchase a G6 cutter, and a "Q" pedal cutter.

    I am hoping that we will consider the purchase of the Fx 6 combi tool in the near future.

    I would encourage your department to set up an evaluation with the tools you are considering for purchase, and test them for yourselves.
