The “ARM Brand” cordless rebar cutter and bolt cutter Model No. BC-16 is available from Stainelec Hydraulic Equipment .
The cordless rebar cutter and bolt cutter tool was used to rescue a boy trapped amongst a mass of rubble and exposed steel rebar material. The incident was the huge earthquake experienced in India 3 years ago which left over 7000 dead and half a million homeless.
Had it not been for speed of the cordless cutting tool, rescue teams say that the boy may not have survived. In the past some rescue work has relied on oxyacetylene torch cutting and angle grinder applications. This old type of method is not as efficient and quick as new conventional cordless rebar cutters, which provide superior safety when in operation as there are no sparks or naked flames. Working with the "ARM Brand" cordless rebar cutter and bolt cutter can improve OH&S working conditions.
