The next generation ultimate tool in the fire service.
In this firefighter training episode we had Lt. Jim Moss spend some time with the next generation Halligan bar, the Maxximus Rexx, a tool widely raved about as the new ultimate tool for forcible entry. Jim Moss and David Soler share their review of the Maxximus Rexx to see if it’s up to the task and if it lives up to its reputation.
In this review we discuss:
- What are our initial impressions of the Maxximus Rexx?
- What are the main features/specifications of the Maxximus Rexx?
- What are the issues firefighters have met with previous tools that the Maxximus has improved upon?
- Why is it called the “Rexx?”
- Does the Maxximus Rexx deserve its reputation and do we recommend it?
