Got a fire? Just grab two tools and run!
The Universal Fire Tool Kit is made for selecting a primary tool and a secondary tool. Rarely are all three needed on a single fire.
For brush and sage fire, grab the Shovel/McLeod, connect it the Tool Handle (your primary tool), and stick the Pulaski Head (your secondary tool) in your pack and head out. In this situation, the Swatter has no use.
However, if you have a grass fire, grab the Swatter, attach it to the handle (your primary tool) and throw the Pulaski Head (your secondary tool) in your pack and head out. In this situation the Shovel/McLeod has no use.
With the Universal Fighter’s Tool Kit you are balanced and ready and equipped to go anywhere to do effective work on any wildfire.

The Swatter head snap-locks onto the Universal Handle to create an extend reach tool 81-inches in total length.
