AxelCut:  The Right Tool for the Job

Rescue Hoist Cable Cutter & Hook

Why you need an AxelCut:

Airborne hoist rescues rarely happen on calm seas or nice days. If the hoist cable gets caught in a ship’s rigging, trees, rocks, railings or worse yet around the rescuer’s neck, the cable needs to be cut quickly. The existing two-handed cable cutters are too slow, ineffective, and not designed for this purpose. The hoist installed cable cutter will cut the cable inside the hoist thus ending any chance of continuing the life-saving mission.

The AxelCut is unaffected by EMI, lightning, or any other possible hoist system failures and is designed for low cost and a long life.There are no explosive charges or shelf life issues, no ITAR issues, and it can cut the cable repeatedly.  The AxelCut can also save significant down time if the cable must be cut; because if the ballistic hoist mounted cable cutter is used the hoist system will have to be rebuilt, and the cartridge will have to be replaced.
