The HYDRA RAM is a unique hydraulic forcible entry tool. It was tested strenuously by FDNY's Research & Development Division for 11 months. Three (3) Hydra Rams were placed into the busiest Ladder and Rescue Companies in the boroughs of Bronx, Manhattan, and Brooklyn. Overwhelming approvals and recommendations for acceptance by these twelve companies were received to make the Hydra Ram their official hydraulic forcible entry tool.
In 1993, during the test and evaluation, FDNY's Ladder Company 4 forced 109 doors during search and rescue operations at the World Trade Center bombing. SPECIFICATIONS: - Weighs 11 lbs. - Length 13" long - 10,000 lbs. of force - 4" spread opening
