  • Amkus cutters

    For you Amkus users, would the speedway cutter work for our first and only cutter or would you recommend the model 25 heavy duty cutter which seemed to be a little small.

    Our service started out with the model 25's we now have the speedway cutters and the 25's never get used the 25's want cut all the way through a,b,c post the speedway cutters will i would recommend the speedway cutters as your primary cutter but if your service can afford it get both you can never have to many toys

      Dave,
      More on your question. I would not reccomend you use the speedway cutter as a primary cutter. The problem that you will find is the length of the blades will not enable you to reach in and cut hinges. The cutting blades for all cutters are designed to wrap around hard metals,hinges,n-bolts,columns,etc. With the speedway blades you will not be able to do this. Blades have been broken and will again because rescuers will try to cut with the tips of the blades. Big NO-NO.Speedway blades will cut hard metals, but you MUST be able to wrap the object you are cutting. Contact an Amkus dealer in your area and ask for a demo. The speedway blades will fit on your 25 body. All the M-25 bodys are the same. If the C-post is your reason for the speedway cutter, you should consider a combi tool. Used properly, the combi tool is a great tool. One rescuer with a combi tool can do two door swings, and remove the roof. Try one.
      Visit Amkus @ www.Amkus.com
      And Ask the Experts. Good Luck

        I have used the 25's for sime time now and really enjoy it. I have never had a problem with not cutting through the a or b post. However, they are a little short when it comes to the c post.
        As for the combi-tool, it works pretty well. However, ours(with a mini-power unit) is a little slow.
        Personally, I love the amkus tools that we have. I wouldn't give them up for anything.
        If you have anymore questions, don't hesitate to ask and we would all be happy to help.
