Product Description

BERTO Fire Tool for improved Fireline Hand Work

Hotshot crews trust our Maxflow Filter System.  Introducing a new tool offered with pride by the same company. 

The BERTO fire tool is custom made to work more efficiently!  Optioned perfectly to suit  you, your task and your region.  You can customize the handle to fit your size and the head swing weight by selecting the blade thickness.

Building on proven ideas of the Reinhart, Bosley, Pin, Y, Rhino and Combi-tools, it optimizes and improves them with unique and innovative features.  

 

3 Position adjustable head locks in place as a shovel or scraper/hoe and also folds flat for transport.

Blade features high tensile steel and Industrial strength construction

Patented (pending) adjustable head locking mechanism that clamps tightly utilizing a 19mm bar nut for security.

Three head angles,  30 degree shovel, 7 degree (Included angle) hoe/scraper and flat for storage

Ideal handle to blade placement for reduced handle twisting forces whether used as a scraper (side of blade) or hoe

Sharpened or flat blade sides (for those who prefer to add their own edge angle)

Replaceable blade with optional cutting, raking and blade thickness for optimized swing weight*

Replaceable handle with optional composition (Wood, Fiberglass, Carbon Fiber or Nupla)

Multi-Angle Ferrule with two handle retention bolts for increased strength and resistance to handle loosening. 

Optional Scrench and holding socket inserted into end of handle

Careful attention to user ergonomics and strike vibration resistance
