  • Haligan tool Vs. axe...What is your favorite?

    We have both haligan tools and pick axes on our trucks. Personally I like the Haligan. I was wondering what some other guys liked and why?

      The axe and haligan are different tools for different tasks. But if I had to take only one it would be a haligan.

        Both are great tools with a multitude of uses. But, I would choose the pickhead axe if I had to choose.

          I hate to add tools to this debate, but I think that the pickhead axe and a 6' pike pole should always go together and the haligan should always be mated with a flathead axe. If I was on the nozzle team I would want the pickhead and pike because it is easier to check with extention with those two and I'd prefer the other two if I was on an entry team. Overall, the pickhead ax is the coolest! There's nothing left standing in front of me with that thing in my hands.

            Spring Hope is a small community in between Raliegh and Rocky Mount on Highway 64. It is in the southern end of Nash County.

              Prefer the Halligan with the flat-headd ax, makes a great combo. If I end up with the pick-head ax I grab a 4 foot Rake to got with it.

                Make my vote for the Halligan!
                Add a flathead axe and you have the winning ticket! (and I'm sure most firefighters won't demand a recount! )

                    RECOUNT???? Who the hell wants a recount?? I'm still counting the original time

                    Seriously though, I vote for Halligan. With the exception of actually extinguishing the fire, there is really not a whole lot you can't do when you have a Halligan. You can force doors, pull walls/ceilings, vent windows and very importantly, if the you know what hits the fan, jam the point through the wall next to a window and put your halligan diagonally across the bottom corner of the window, and there's your anchor point for tying off your bail out line.

                      If I'm venting, gimme a 8 lb pick and a long rake. If I'm forcing interior, a 10 pound sledge and the Halligan. If I just had one tool, easy jus' gimme the Halligan.

                        Haligan all the way. The most versatile tool in your hand.

                          Halligan is my choice. Without the flat head axe the irons are like peas without carrots, as Forest would say.

                            I agree with most of the others if you mate a flathead axe w/ a haligan you have all you will need. It was once pointed out to me that if you count right a haligan has 13 different "tools" in itself.
