  • HURST EK COMBO or HP COMBO Tools...

    Our Department is still looking for small, hand operated spreaders/cutters that we can place on our Pumps (Engines) as a suppliment to our heavy hydraulic tools (carried only on our Rescue Units). Recently, I saw an advertisement for the HURST "EK COMBO" and "HP COMBO" tools. Never seen them before, so....is anyone using these tools and what has your experience been with them?

    The EK-Combo has a built-in 24 volt battery, good for about 30 minutes. A one hour back-up battery comes loose in the case along with charger and pigtails. A 12 inch spread with 18,000lbs. of force and a cut force of 60,700lbs.

    I have used it for structural forcible entry and cracking open cars.

    Its very effective on chain, cable, padlocks, window bars and rebar. I suppose it would have a good application for RIT teams as well.

    Doing door removals on vehicles, I usualy attack the hinge side of the door first. I have found that if the metal tears at the door or pillar-post it can cut the hinges.

      If you have the room look at a Pheonix(SP) 25/35 (28 inch opening and wiight 35lbs) best combi tool around works with hurst pumps and since it cuts you also get ISO points
