Published:  26 November, 2014

Holmatro has launched a new range of compact hand pumps to drive a variety of hydraulic rescue tools during different operations, ranging from vehicle rescue to emergency response. Made of high-grade aluminum and equipped with a fiberglass reinforced handle, the new pumps are lightweight but robust.This makes them easy to carry and protects them from damage.

’A higher oil flow enables users to complete their actions quicker than before. They also benefit from many user-friendly extras like a ‘push & unlock’ system for immediate release of the pump handle, comfortable soft-grip operation, a hydraulic oil level indicator and a built-in funnel,’ said Rescue Consultant for Holmatro, Ian Dunbar.

The range includes hand pumps for single-acting or double-acting equipment, as well as special models to use with Holmatro’s hydraulic PowerShore shoring system or door opener HDR 50. A foot pump is also available. ‘With this new line Holmatro meets the needs of rescuers looking for a solution to drive specific rescue tools and those who need a back-up pump for their complete rescue set,’ concluded Ian.
