Setup for full performance.

Media block

  

For successful rescue operations, rescuers need perfectly adjusted tools. The interplay between hydraulic force and blade geometry only works perfectly when the blades are kept exactly parallel and cannot be levered apart by the material being cut. So the efficiency of a cutter is already decided before it is put to work - by checking the tightening torque on the pivot bolt.


Surprise in an emergency

The exact values for the torque settings are specified in the manuals. For any blade shape, failure to comply with the manufacturer's specifications can easily result in steel parts from vehicle pillars getting between the blades and lever them apart. If the torque is too low, the blades jam or twist when closing and fail to deliver full performance; blade breakings are hardly to avoid. In an emergency, that can mean lost time and lives.
 

Something you can adjust to

With LUKAS tools, the pivot bolt torque is continuously adjustable since they usually have self-locking nuts. On the top cutters, the S 700 and S 700 E, the nuts can be secured by pre-torquing. Continuous adjustability is a must since even a slight turn of the nut by a few degrees can mean a deviation of 80 to 100 Nm from the correct torque. With LUKAS cutters and combination tools, the pivot bolts can be exactly tightened and the nuts secure in any position - no dangerous compromises.
That's how we deliver technical superiority for continuous top cutting performance.

Get maximum performance that lasts

Regular inspection of the rescue equipment is recommended after every operation, so you should also check regularly to ensure that your tool's pivot bolt is correctly tightened and can be secured in this position. Then you will always have 100% cutting performance when you need it, and avoid expensive repairs.
