Basic Firefighter Tool Kit Parts

Universal Firefighter’s Tool Handle

This tool  weighs in at 2.1 pounds, is 37 inches long and is made of Hickory.  This specially engineered wooden handle with snap-lock fitting is 3 inches longer and approximately twice the strength of a traditional Pulaski handle. As a result of good engineering practices the hardened-aluminum CNC-manufactured male fitting easily threads and locks into all Quick Change Tool Heads. In addition, the Universal Firefighter’s Tool Handle is replaceable.

Combination Pulaski Firefighter’s Tool

This tool weighs in at 3.3 pounds and has a high-carbon steel replaceable axe and grub-hoe blades, The 6-inch wide grub-hoe blade is twice the width of the traditional Pulaski blade.  In addition, the composite tool head snap-locks onto the Universal Firefighter’s Tool Handle. This tool is balanced with center of tool mass at handle Quick Connect. The Pulaski head and Universal Handle has the same weight as the traditional Pulaski. However the longer reach provides for more powerful blows for swift easy cutting.  The Pulaski includes orange blade guards with elastic webbing.  Additionally, two stainless screws are included in the webbing for attaching an emergency handle if needed.

Universal Shovel/McLeod Fire Tool

Weighing in at 3.7 lb. this universal tool with a push-button adjusts quickly from a shovel for digging and throwing dirt to a McLeod for scrapping line.  This tool adjusts easily for mixing and chinking during mop-up. As a result of the push-button adjustment, the tool combines features of the traditional military trenching shovel and the McLeod rake. Likewise, the composite steel shovel easily snap-locks onto the Universal Handle. Finally, the tool head stows flat for travel and can serve as a safety staff for cross- country travel on steep and uneven ground.

The perfect tool kit for 4 wheel vehicles

Four Wheelers travel a lot in the back country off highways.  The vegetation varies from forest to grass. Many of these areas are away from initial response fire crews.  Why not be prepared with a compact, highly effective, high quality set of fire tools you can trust.  These tools have stood up to the test of experienced fire crews.
