The new 5000 series rescue tools from Holmatro are lighter and more ergonomic than ever, without any concessions on performance. This has been achieved through a combination of new materials, component integration and innovative design.
The 5000 series cutters significantly reduce the physical burden on the operator. This burden is even further reduced by one special model, the Inclined Cutter. This cutter with its inclined jaw eliminates the need to lift the tool high up for a roof cut or to bend over deeply to cut the rocker panel. Working with the Inclined Cutter also means there’s more space for the tool to move towards the car when you cut a pillar from the side. And with the carrying handle going all-around, you can always use this cutter in its most favorable position, at all sides of the vehicle. All new cutters have New Car Technology blades with an optimized cutting edge for a longer blade life and the best possible performance on modern cars.
The 5000 series spreaders are also much lighter in weight without compromising spreading force and spreading distance. Within this new series, one model attracts the most attention: the Compact Lightweight Spreader (SP 5240 CL). Weighing in at just 9.9kg / 21.8lb this spreader is even more lightweight than the other models. It offers every spreading capability you need for the extrication of a trapped victim from the latest car prototypes.
The 5000 series also includes a Greenline range with battery technology for increased freedom of movement.
