Shelby, North Carolina (August 8, 2019) – HURST Jaws of Life® is raising the bar in industry performance for battery-powered combination tools, introducing the SC 758E2 with improved ratings, wider spreads and larger cutter openings.

“We’re continually improving the power and performance of HURST Jaws of Life rescue tools to help first responders as they encounter increasingly demanding scenarios during extrications,’” said Bruce Johnston, director of marketing and product management. “Our new battery-powered eDRAULIC SC 758E2 combination tool offers high performance with the innovative features needed to successfully attack the tough metals on today’s cars.”

The new HURST Jaws of Life SC 758E2, part of the Li-Ion rechargeable battery-powered eDRAULIC® line, offers a C9 NFPA® Cutter rating and an overall rating of A8/B9/C9/DE/E9. The cutting performance combined with a 1” increase in spreading distance (18.7 inches) and nearly two inches more in the cutter opening creates the most powerful battery-powered combi tool in the market.

Fast opening and closing action on the SC 758E2 ensure speed during time-critical rescues, and the cutting blade surface is taken to the end of the blade for more aggressive blade geometry. HURST Jaws of Life “Shark Tooth” removable tips – four rows of shark-like teeth for maximum grip – offer multi-functional design while the ergonomically designed star-grip allows for tool actuation from almost any gripping position.

The SC 758E2 is expected to ship in mid- to late-November and replaces the SC 757E2.
