AMKUS tools include innovative features that offer users distinct benefits. The ION line includes DEWALT FLEXVOLT batteries that offer 60-volt power at affordable pricing and the batteries can be shared with other tools on the apparatus. The short length and balance on all AMKUS tools increase operator safety and allow access to areas other brands can’t reach.
Since day one AMKUS has understood that it’s in a life-saving business. The tools are rugged, offering years of reliable performance. When service is required, we’ve extensively trained our employees, technicians, dealers and even customers to understand how the tools operate and how to efficiently repair them.
The AMKUS family includes a wide range of tools, struts, power units, and accessories. Many with optional features that are designed to help first responders perform more quickly and safely.

FLEXVOLT RESCUE KITS
WE ARE A FULL LINE AMKUS DEALER
In 1984 AMKUS conducted a demonstration of its extrication equipment for NASCAR and Daytona International Speedway staff in Daytona Beach at a hotel parking lot not far from the beach. AMKUS supplied rescue tools that year to the Daytona International Speedway and NASCAR ... and a winning partnership was born.
Today, Track Services Safety Teams carry a minimum of one AMKUS Rescue System tool at every NASCAR-sanctioned event. In 2014 the AMKUS racing family expanded again, adding the NHRA (National Hot Rod Association), ARCA and IMSA as well as local race track facilities across the country. We believe that our relationship with professional motorsports is the ultimate proving ground for AMKUS product innovation.
ION tool housings are built from solid aluminum and are ready for service in the severe duty demanded by first responders.
Extrications don’t always take place outside the vehicle. Sometimes you have to get inside to move and cut material and that’s when a compact tool really matters. AMKUS tools are between 5 and 12 inches shorter than competitors’ models, so you can make rescue even in cramped quarters. In addition, these compact but powerful tools leave plenty of compartment space for other important items on the apparatus.
TILT THE BALANCE
Cutters and Combi’s are equipped with lighted rotating handles. The handle rotation keeps the user from having to change hand positions on what is usually a standard D handle. A simple rotation puts the blades and valve into the position you want with minimal effort.
FLEXVOL: MAXIMUM POWER, MINIMUM PRICE
ION tools utilize the DEWALT FLEXVOLT battery platform. The 60 volt battery operates ION tools and will also power both 60 volt and 20 volt DEWALT tools. It is the only battery that automatically changes voltages when you change tools, so you can share batteries between ION tools and other tools like saws and drills. The powerful brushless motor develops 2 horsepower under heavy load.
DEWALT is the most trusted name in batteries and power tools. ION tools utilize a complete DEWALT system that includes the battery, motor and intelligent electronics to deliver maximum power and life.
