This kit is he basis for the U.S. Marine Corps’ Assault Breachers’ Torch Kit and is also in use with Army Special Forces, the F.B.I., and other federal and local special response teams. It was created to meet the specialised requirements of the military’s tactical cutting operations.
This ultra-lightweight rescue and recovery torch system is engineered to provide the greatest cutting capability in a man-carried torch system. Backpacked in operational mode, the kit is just half the weight of industrial cutting sets, yet provides the capability of cutting 8 linear feet of 1″ thick steel in less than 10 minutes.
The use of hand-tight fittings and quick connects means no tools are required for assembly or disassembly. The PC/TACMOD1 torch kit is configured for use with Broco cutting rods and RapidFire cutting rod igniters. RapidFire’s fuel element reacts with oxygen to produce a preheat source facilitating near-instantaneous non-electric ignition of the cutting rods. For economical operations, the accessory battery ignition components allow easy lighting of the cutting rods.
Kit comes complete with torch, high pressure oxygen cylinder, regulator, hoses, lightweight back harness, battery ignition accessories, rod extender, rod quiver, leather shield, gloves, safety glasses and custom foamed Pelican case.
