In addition the hardened-aluminum CNC-manufactured male fitting threads into and locks into all Quick Change Tool Heads. Finally, the Universal Firefighter’s Tool Handle is replaceable.  We carry extra Firefighter Tool “Universal Handles”.  Have one for each tool head.

2 – Combination “Magnum Pulaski” Firefighter’s Tool

This Magnum Pulaski tool weighs in at 3.3 pounds. It has high-carbon steel replaceable axe and grub-hoe blades.  Another attribute is the 6-inch wide grub-hoe blade is twice the width of the traditional Pulaski blade.  Additionally, the composite tool head snap-locks onto the Universal Firefighter’s Tool Handle. Finally, the balance of this tool has the 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.  This provides for swift and easy cutting.  The Pulaski includes orange blade guards with elastic webbing.  Additionally, two stainless screws are included in the webbing.  These are for attaching an emergency handle if needed.

3 – Fire Shovel/McLeod “Troop Tool”

This tool weighs in at 3.7 pounds. This universal tool adjusts quickly from a shovel to a McLeod.  With the push button, its easy to shift from throwing dirt to scrapping lines. 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. It easily converts to the McLeod rake. As a result of the design, just flip it over for a scraper.  Likewise, the steel shovel easily snaps and locks onto the Universal Handle. Finally, the tool head stows flat for travel. In this position it can serve as a safety staff for cross- country travel.  It makes travel on steep and uneven ground easier.

The perfect tool kit for 4 wheel vehicles

Four Wheelers travel a lot in the back country off highways.  As a result, many of these areas are remote. They are away from initial response fire crews. The vegetation varies from forest to grass.  Be prepared with a compact, highly effective fire kit.  It contains a high quality set of fire tools you can trust.  These tools have stood up to the test of experienced fire crews.
