GENESIS RESCUE 17C BRUTE VARIO EASY PUSH BUTTON CONTROL ROTATING CARRY HANDLE
- The 17C Brute is the largest combination tool in the Genesis lineup. This powerhouse is HSS and boron steel capable. This combination tool also allows the user to connect breaching tips, extrication tips, or extension tips.
The push button control allows for greater safety to the operator by being able to control the tool with only one finger if need be. This gives the user the ability to keep appendages safe while still having total control over the tool. Traditional twist style controllers require that the operator’s entire hand is gripped tightly on the tool, and this puts that hand in danger of being crushed between the surface and tool with no way to release the power of the tool, effectively trapping the appendage.
The Genesis push button control is a variable speed controller. Lightly depressing the button will feather the speed at which the tool open and closes. The more you depress the button the faster the tool will operate.
