The new battery powered ION tool’s onboard pump system delivers amazingly fast performance under both loaded and unloaded conditions. The tools are compact to access tight spaces and require less room on apparatus. In addition, they utilize the DEWALT FLEXVOLT platform, so the affordable batteries can be shared with other fire rescue tools like saws, lights and drills. A full line of FLEXVOLT fire rescue kits can be found at AMKUS.com or ShopAmkus.com.

Like the ION tools, the new AMKUS LINE tools bring superior operator safety and performance to a family of tools long recognized as versatile and reliable. The all-metal bodies include ergonomic operator controls and the ability to reposition the tool at any time with minimal effort.

According to Kyle Smith, AMKUS president, “What really sets these tools apart, both ION and LINE, is their ability to deliver reliable performance in real world extrication scenarios. They’re powerful, quick, and versatile.”
