Correct Hydraulic Tool Use Holmatro rescue equipment

Connecting the tools together

When connecting the Core hoses to the generator do not connect the dust caps together, the dust caps can only be connected at the TOOL end only.

This allows the Core hose to rotate freely 360 degrees when unraveling the hose

Carrying the tools before and after use

  • Always use hard or soft protection between the tool and the casualty
  • Ideally all tool placement dshould be placed at 90 degrees to the object being cut
  • Rotate tool use to assist recovery and welfare
  • Stand clear of the scene to un-mist safety visors and glasses
  • Do not fight against the tool
  • watch for hand or tool entrapment from un-managed tool movement (hand getting caught against the tool and a seat cushion
