Discipline: Product

The V4 hydraulic ram is part of a series of rescue tools that also includes spreaders and cutters. It is used to create space in crashed vehicles in order to rescue victims and provide access for emergency personnel. The carrying ring makes it easy to transport and position the tool in both the retracted and extended positions. Operation is intuitive and comfortable, with the handle placed at an angle to provide more space for the hands. Its length range overlaps with the lengths of the other models in the series, offering a solution for any situation.
