Ever see firefighters at work & wonder what the tool is that they're using? If so, you're in the right place for WFC's new weekly Tool Tuesday post!
This week's tool is the Paratech Air Bag. Made from three layers of neoprene-coated aramid fibers, the bag can be inflated to lift & stabilize loads such as cars, tractors and industrial machinery.
WFC owns a six bag set that is housed on Engine 2 with the largest bag being rated to lift 54 tons. Bags can be inflated using SCBA bottles, compressors or even by stealing air from a vehicle tire.
