  • Need More Info Please

    My Dept Currently Owns An Old Set Of Jaws. They Are Made By The Rescue Gator Company And Are Operated By Air That Drives Hydraulics. There Is A Spreader That Is Open Only And Closed By Gravity, Same With The Cutter. I Was Wondering If Anyone Had More Info On This Or If Anyone Would Be Able To Tell Me The Value Of The Set. I Think This Would Be One Of The First Rescue Tools Out Maybe 1950's-1960's.

      Personally, in my opinion, if you have cutters that only work by the force of gravity....they are worthless.

            The Rescue Gator was a product of the 80's, simply an air driven hydraulic jack basically.

            Value is in the mind of the owner or buyer.

              A little off subject but has or did anyone ever run the Porter Ferguson rescue tools at one time?

                You might try www.usedrescuetools.com. I'm sure they can give you an idea.

                  Gator Tool

                  I think the Gator Rescue Tool was made by a company named Walker. They had a Spreader, Cutter and a Ram. They also had a supplied air cart that provided air to a foot powered actuator and air release pedal. Try to find info about the Walker Company. That may provide some help for you.
