In 1972, ResQTec started by introducing (in partnership with Hurst Performance), the hydraulic rescue tool concept into the world market. Hurst Performance dedicated its efforts to the North American continent, and ResQTec for the rest of the world. This partnership led to several innovations that changed the way you do rescue operations. Beside the spreader, products like the dedicated cutter and the ram were developed during this partnership. In 1990 Hurst Performance and ResQTec split up due to differences in strategy. Since then our presence has grown rapidly, we believe mostly due to the startegy to develop innovative products. One of our biggest successes has come from the development of the NT lifting bag, which is being adopted quickly due to thr advantages it gives the rescuer.

As a leading manufacturer in the rescue industry, our vision is not to be the biggest in the market, but to be the best. We make no compromise when it comes to product performance.



Rapid and easy to use they are the must have for the professional resuer. They can be used for any cribbing application during rescue operations and have several advantages over wood as a means of cribbing a structure. The unique interlocking and stacking desing makes any stabilization of a structure fast! With the ability to withstand loads of up to 60 US Tons, you are able to crib everything you're working on. Get more control over a situation and more safety for victim and rescuer.

 Hydraulic Combi Tool spec sheet

The Frontliner Fx series is what sets us apart. It has the highest performance for combined cutting and spreading tool on the market. Easily detach the jaws and you have a dedicated cutter that equals the G series in capacity.

 Hydraulic Rams and Extensions

Being the company that developed the original rescue ram, we know something about them. A ram stands in service of the spreader and cutter, for when you need to create more room and have the same spreading capacity over the long area. That is why you want not only a performance ram,but one that works in cooperation with your main tools. Furthermore, rams need to work together, by overlapping each other: meaning the V4 can take over from the V2 if needed. Due to EWO technology the rams are extremely easy to carry and position. They achieve a firm grip in a structure - the Ram V series are ready when you need them.

 Hydraulic Mini Pumps

There is a lot to tell about a power unit, but you probably just want to know if it will always work and deliver the necessary power to the tool. The answer is yes! The Mini / Maxi series are equiped with high flow pumps to give speed and performance, with no speed loss when using multiple tools in Simo or Trimo use. Lightweight and excellent cooling cabability. The Maxi series are available to connect or operate one, two, three even four tools at the same time.

 Trench Shoring with Pneumatic System

OSHA 29 CFR 1926.650 mandates the installation of a protective system in trenches to guard against cave-in. There are three recognized methods of protection; Sloping, Shielding and Shoring. All three are excellent, however, as a result of trench location and the underground utilities commonly encountered, shoring has become the most versatile method of protection.

After years of research, Prospan has designed and engineered the most advanced pneumatic shoring device on the market. The Prospan design enables both the underground contractor as well as rescue personnel to come into compliance and shore practically anything encountered.
