Holmatro's four 5000 Series single and double plunger rams offer increased capability for extracting patients from vehicles at an accident scene.

The RA5321 and RA5331 are single plunger rams, while the RA5322 and RA5332 offer a plunger on either side of the tool. The additional plunger increases the spreading stroke without loss of force, according to the company. The single plunger rams can be combined with extension pipes in three sizes, including 6.5 inches, 13 inches, and 19.7 inches.

The tools come with a redesigned control handle for better grip, integrated LED lighting, a carrying handle, speed valve for quicker unloaded extension, and new rotating cross heads with a precision cast profile. Protective strips on the housing help prevent damage when the tool must be put on the ground.

All models are EN and NFPA certified and equipped with CORE technology to more easily attach them to a hydraulic pump.
