HURST Jaws of Life, Inc., an industry leading global manufacturer of rescue tools, has introduced StrongArm®, a versatile, multipurpose tool that fills a critical need for police and SWAT teams. Replacing a number of single purpose hand tools, StrongArm provides portable hydraulic power to use in a variety of applications.

"StrongArm is a game changer," said Bruce Johnston, director of marketing and product management for HURST Jaws of Life, Inc. "Customarily, police and SWAT teams have an arsenal of tools to choose from in the field, but StrongArm truly does it all. It breaks down doors, pries open car doors and cuts through rebar, security bars and locks. We’re very excited to introduce this remarkable tool to police and SWAT teams around the world."

With a built-in Picatinny accessory rail and a four position handle, StrongArm cuts, lifts and spreads. It replaces crowbars, halligan bars, wire cutters, axes and more. More specifically, it can cut through 3/8" rebar, grade 43 chain, two-by-four wood and is in protection class IP54.

The compact, portable design makes StrongArm easy to carry and allows it to fit into tight spaces, making it lightweight without compromising power or strength. StrongArm is extremely durable, weighs 21.4 to 25.8lbs., depending on the attachments, and comes with two sets of tips, two Li-ion rechargeable batteries and one charger. StrongArm comes in black for law enforcement and blue for the municipal fire market.
