What Sets Us Apart

ION – A FAMILY OF BATTERY POWERED TOOLS

  • Lightweight, solid aluminum housing is not susceptible to cracking like plastic housings on other tools.
  • Short length of tool allows it to fit into confined spaces competitive tools can’t access.
  • Audible change in operation indicates when the battery is low / Tool will not suddenly stop operating due to a low battery without warning.
  • Each tool is provided with two DeWalt® 36V lithium-ion batteries and one heavy duty charger so power is easy access from a number of market sources.

CONTROL VALVE LOCATION

  • AMKUS locates the control valve parallel to the cylinder. With this compact design the operator can place the tool where they need it to effectively do the job.
  • Length of the tool – The wrap around design of our control valve allows the operator to access cuts in tight spaces and rotate the valve out of harm’s way.
  • Balance- The control valve location allows the user to share the weight of the tool between two hands versus one. This feature is critical when using more substantial cutters like the AMK-22.
  • Hand Position- An operator’s hands stay in sight at all times with the AMKUS control valve which is important as the tools move during operation. Tools with the control valve located at the end of the tool put your hands out of sight and into a compromising position. Our tools can be rotated 180 degrees to move the valve away from potential pinch points allowing the operator to make the desired cut. A valve located at the end of the tool limits the user and forces him to change the angle of the cut or change the technique altogether.
  • Easy turn control valve. Our valve is easy to turn and uses the large muscle groups of the forearm for less fatigue.

SPREADER DESIGN (WAY DIFFERENT FROM EVERYONE ELSE)

  • Rack and Pinion Drive- The design of our AMK-24, AMK-30CX and AMK-30CRT spreaders provides a more consistent spreading force from start to finish. Other spreader designs give you maximum spreading force at the end of the spread and minimum at the beginning- the point in which you need maximum force.
  • The Extended Reach Tips (ERT) in conjuntion with our standard tips give the rescuer more options for techniques such as lifting the dash/steering column.

ROTATING HANDLE CUTTER

  • Others have tried it, we’ve perfected it. Rescuers waste valuable energy repositioning their hands on a cutter handle. Our unique 360 degree rotating handle found on our Model AMK-21 and AMK-22 Cutters give the user the ability to change the position of the tool without having to let go of the handle. Repositioning requires minimal effort without your hand ever leaving the handle.
