HURST Jaws of Life® Launches S 799E2/S 799 Cutter


SHELBY, NC—HURST Jaws of Life®, a global manufacturer of rescue tools, has launched S 799E2/S 799 cutter. The new cutter offers an 8.03-inch blade opening to get around tougher metals and newer designs in the posts.

“The new HURST Jaws of Life 799 cutter overdelivers on our promise to provide first responders with rescue tools that can cut through the advanced high-strength steels on new model vehicles,” said HURST Jaws of Life Director of Marketing and Product Management Bruce Johnston, noting the S 799E2 and S 799 have achieved A9/B9/C9/D9/E9 in NFPA 1936, Standard on Powered Rescue Tools, the highest rating possible.

Available in the HURST Jaws of Life battery-powered eDRAULIC and 10,000 -lines lines, the S 799E2 and S 799 reduce tool swing challenges by cutting A and B posts from its easy-to-handle perpendicular angle. It can also complete most B-post cuts with one bite.

With first responder safety and comfort in mind, the S 799E2 and S 799 are ergonomically designed with a star-grip that permits tool actuation from almost any gripping position. Dead man control valves will revert the tool to a neutral position if a worker’s hands slip from the control. Additionally, the S 799E2 eDRAULIC cutter comes with two batteries and one charger.
