Go The Distance with Weber Rescue

Distance Markings

All future rescue rams from WEBER RESCUE will have laser-etching on the piston rod to indicate the rams’ remaining extension length.

This early warning system enables you to decide right away whether the ram you are currently using is long enough for the job or whether a longer ram must be prepared and used.

A real time saver at work!

There are four etched lines around the circumference which indicate the remaining length.

Each line has Centimetre and Inch markings which can be clearly seen from all angles. They show the last available 20 centimetres and so help you to select the right rescue ram.

A real plus for rescue work!

Gloucestershire Fire & Rescue Service make Weber Rescue's E-FORCE 2 it's preferred choice

Following an extensive evaluation, Gloucestershire Fire & Rescue Service recently chose Weber Rescue’s battery operated E-FORCE 2 for its performance, quality of equipment and operational user benefits.

The evaluation process, whereby all suppliers were asked to attend Gloucester South Fire Station to present their products and capabilities to over 30 operational personnel, was also attended by members of the newly formed Research and Development Innovation Hub (based at the Fire Service College), to see how the evaluation was completed.

Gloucestershire FRS’s Head of Research and Development Group Manager Dave Pike said, “Moving forward with battery operated rescue equipment on our frontline appliances was an ideal approach for a modern emergency service like Gloucestershire, as the equipment has all the performance for RTC incidents, yet has none of the restrictions or risks of the traditional equipment, and will also reduce ongoing costs to the service.”

Equipped with the latest technologies within it’s drive unit, unique to Weber Rescue, ensures that the system is highly efficient and provides a longer working time, extended battery duration and also a key safety feature whereby, the tool has the ability to turn itself off when not in use. This ensures that tools are not left ‘live’ at the scene.

Richard Wood from Weber Rescue UK said, “Gloucestershire are equipping their frontline appliance with the ultimate batteryoperated tools, which consist of the RSU200EF2 Cutter, which offers up to 107 tonnes cutting force and is ideal for all RTC and heavy rescue requirements. The Spreader is the SP53 BS EF2, which provides over 42 tonnes spreading force and has an immense 800mm opening. To complement these “Black Series” tools is the new RZT2-1360EF2 Telescopic Rescue Ram, which has a large opening of 1360mm”

Gloucestershire FRS, like many UK fire and rescue services, will enjoy benefits of hose-free rescue work.

The New BC250 Concrete Crusher

The BC 250 concrete crusher is suitable for the toughest applications following natural disasters, such as earthquakes and building collapse, and for applications following industrial accidents. Even the thickest chunks of concrete can be quickly broken to provide rapid access to survivors.
The rotating handle enables optimum positioning of the crusher. Its protective shield protects again dust and fragments, and can also be turned. The tips can be replaced as in almost all WEBER RESCUE cutting equipment.
The concrete crusher can be delivered as a conventional hose-connected version (BC 250) or as a battery-operated version (BC 250 E-FORCE). The battery pack is compatible with all E-FORCE rescue equipment and the Milwaukee battery pack saws.

Our friends at Genesis Rescue Systems (The brand name for Weber Rescue Systems in the USA) recently put the BC250 E-Force through it’s paces. Watch the video above to see some of the results!!
