"In addition to my own two sons, who are both professional firefighter / paramedics, numerous other firefighter and police SWAT teams across the United States depend on The EXTRACTOR Rescue Blade™ daily. It is simply the best All-Purpose Diamond Rescue Blade available." - James Bast, president of Fire Rescue Blades, Inc.
We are honored to announce these agencies also depend on our EXTRACTOR Blades daily:
In early August, A Battalion worked a structure fire during which a garage mechanism failed due to the heat. As a result, the door came down and could not be opened. Fortunately, our fire attack team was on top of the situation. No one was in the garage when the door came down. Attempts to breach the door were complicated due to the hurricane-rated reinforcements. Eventually, an entry point was made and the garage was overhauled. There were a few lessons learned from this incident. First, a "V" pattern cut would have saved time. Secondly, the saw blades we are currently using on the K-12 saws needed to be reviewed for efficiency.
On Wednesday, August 26, C Battalion firefighters Ryan Flattery, Chris Lemieux and Lt. Mike Fitzpatrick built a reusable garage door prop. The quality of the prop is top notch and reusable. A local vendor offered us a new diamond-cut saw blade to try out. The blade called the EXTRACTOR performed well by breaching the door in just seconds. The vendor claimed the blade could cut almost anything. So, being a firefighter, I brought him anything and everything that I could find: an air compressor head, a high-strength-steel I-beam and a 4" x 16" concrete block.
The results of the test were quite dramatic and we learned a great deal from it. The current blades we are using are not meant to cut I-beams. The EXTRACTOR Rescue Blade cut the beam very efficiently. Our current blade cut the concrete block in 1 minute and 50 seconds. The EXTRACTOR Blade cut through the block in just 12 seconds. Chief Carter has the blades on all the departments saws.

FLORIDA, Chris Coons - Division Chief "The cost difference in the two blades was unknown to the testers in a value comparison. For overall speed, reliability, wear usage and ability to penetrate and cut, it is the opinion of the testers that the EXTRACTOR blade is the hands-down top performer. The blade produces less noise, less by-product shrapnel, and cuts through a wider range of materials than the other Demolition blade. The EXTRACTOR blade was put through a barrage of materials and showed no obvious usage wear or damage. It is the consensus of the testing group that having just this blade on a K12 saw would give the operator more flexibility to cut through given obstacles in a much faster and safer manner. This blade could replace the multiple blades that we currently stock and serve as a true multipurpose blade."
FLORIDA, Boca Raton, BT Chief - Special Ops "We not only have the EXTRACTOR diamond blades on our K-12 rescue saws in Special Operations, our whole fire department uses them on a wide variety of Husqvarna / Partner / K-12 rescue saws from the K-750 to K-960. Our mechanics use the 2" and 3" EXTRACTOR blades on die grinders, the 4" and 4.5" EXTRACTOR Blades on angle grinders, and the 12" and 14" EXTRACTOR Blades on an electric chop saw. From the 16" diameter to smallest sizes, the EXTRACTOR series All-Purpose Diamond Blade are the best we've ever used.”
FLORIDA, Delray Beach, Division Chief EXTRACTOR Blade is in service on every K-12, Husqvarna / Partner gas cutoff rescue saw in the department. “The only problem I see with your EXTRACTOR Diamond Rescue Blade is the darn thing doesn't seem to ever want to wear out! So with the long blade life it has, your reorders might be a little slow coming. It's really an awesome all-purpose rescue blade. Thanks."
FLORIDA, Greenacres, Chief The EXTRACTOR Diamond Blades are in service on all Husqvarna / Partner / K-12 rescue saws. “It's a real all-purpose rescue blade, the best we’ve ever had. It cuts everything very fast and holds up great. And the price is real cheap compared to others we've bought that didn't hold up and didn't cut nearly as fast. Great blade."
MICHIGAN, Masters of Mayhem - Russ Oakley "When we first got the blade and tried to cut steel, we noticed it took a fair amount of force to cut through the steel (mostly 1/8" wall rectangular tubing in various dimensions). We also observed that the blade cut through the metal, leaving a burr that has to be ground off. However, we really liked the fact that the blade is stiff enough to get nice mitered cuts, so we have continued to use it. That said, we have about 75-100 cuts on the blade, and I swear it is getting sharper. It cuts better now than when it was new. It still leaves a burr to grind, but now the burr is only about 1/3 the size and thickness. We have even cut some hardened bar stock. I was looking for a blade that would give us clean cuts and nice mitered corners. We have tried other "metal cutting blades" that are more expensive, and they gave us nice mitered cuts for about 10 cuts and that's it. Our cost per cut using your blade is far less expensive than anything else we have tried. You sold us on the longevity and stability of the blade. Maybe the small burrs will totally disappear if we keep using it."

INDIANA, Northern Indiana Fire Training Center, Clark County Fire District, Division Chief Mike Park The EXTRACTOR Diamond Blade is in service on all rescue saws. “We had to respond to a very bad accident on the interstate the day before we were to begin our training class with a group of fifty firefighters from the Midwest. The accident was one of the worst I've seen. We had to extricate five bodies from a mutilated pickup truck rear-ended by a tractor trailer and crushed into the rear of a semi trailer. We used the EXTRACTOR Blade and did a lot of cutting at the scene. It was a very sad situation. The next day during our training sessions, we used the same saw and EXTRACTOR Blade that we used at the accident. Fifty firefighters each made several cuts with that same EXTRACTOR Blade, and it never failed. In fact, it's still in service now. It's a phenomenal blade."
CALIFORNIA, Fremont Fire Department, Capt. Vic Taugher EXTRACTOR Blades are in service on the fire department's Stihl and Husqvarna rescue saws “The EXTRACTOR Diamond Blade sells itself. Once a firefighter cuts something and experiences its quality and high performance, it's a done deal. The low price made it easy for our department to make the switch. It's an awesome blade at a great price."
WASHINGTON, Vancouver, Capt. Scott Reamer or FF Rich Renne EXTRACTOR blades in service. “We tried numerous so called all purpose blades, this is the first one that really is one. Awesome blade!"
SAN JUAN, PR, Homeland Security - Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement - Caribbean Strike Force Unit - (ICE) They use the 16” diameter EXTRACTOR Diamond Blades on their K-1250 Husqvarna / K-12 gas cutoff saws. Special agent said, "The best diamond blade we could find. It cuts everything, and cuts it very fast! I expected to have to pay twice as much as I paid for your 16" diameter EXTRACTOR Blades. Your prices are more than excellent for such a high-quality diamond blade, especially one that delivers such outstanding performance."
FLORIDA, Martin County Fire Rescue, Division Chief EXTRACTOR Blades in service on all rescue saws. “We cut everything and the EXTRACTOR Diamond Blade performed just as advertised. It cut wood, 1/4" steel, security glass and a bunch of other stuff flawlessly. We were pleasantly surprised how the EXTRACTOR Blade sold itself to us. It's the best all-purpose blade we've tested."
FLORIDA, Town of Palm Beach, Captain & Division Chief The EXTRACTOR All-Purpose Diamond Blade is in service on all Husqvarna / Partner / K-12 and Stihl gas cutoff rescue saws and the 28-volt angle grinders. “We've found the 12", 14" and 16" EXTRACTOR Diamond Blades to be outstanding, the best we've tested. And the same goes for the 4" and 4.5" sizes we use on our Milwaukee 28-volt angle grinders for the small jobs: cutting locks, chain, dead bolts, security bars. And, they cut hurricane glass and security glass like butter, just like the larger EXTRACTOR Blades do. They're really outstanding blades."
FLORIDA, West Palm Beach, Training Officer Testing New Equipment EXTRACTOR Blades in service. A lieutenant reports, "Man, this is one heck-of-a good all-purpose rescue blade! We got a call to a TGIF Friday's fire and had to cut through five layers of roofing material to breach the roof and drop into the kitchen. There we had to cut through a heavy piece of stainless steel to expose a fire in the wall caused by an electrical short. The EXTRACTOR Blade on our Partner saw cut it all like butter, saving us a tremendous amount of time. It's definitely my blade of choice."
FLORIDA, Broward County, Captain - Firefighter and Academy Training Officer After the EXTRACTOR cut various materials, the captain's message to one of the BT Chiefs: “I believe I may have just seen the best blade I’ve seen in my entire career. It cut everything, and I mean everything! I believe we should consider getting this blade."
FLORIDA, Miami - Captain After his men tested the EXTRACTOR Blade. He said, “The EXTRACTOR diamond blade is without a doubt the best buy. It performed as good as my best blade, which cost us almost twice as much, and it even outperformed my best blade in some areas. It's definitely the best value for an all-purpose blade."
VERMONT, South Burlington Fire Rescue - Craig Rounds "When the new budget year hits July 1, I want to buy two more blades just like last time so we have backups. An extractor and a roof ripper, I believe their 12 inch. We have all been very impressed with performance. Best blades I've ever seen. I may also be interested in an angle grinder extractor as well.”
