If you dont mind... let me suggest talking to Mitch Goldberg from Code4USA and perhaps he can assist you with looking for a better set of HURST tools. I will put my life on it... hes a great guy and is looking for customers... not sales... he will treat you right.

Stay safe

did you know that TNT has a 2 to 1 safety factor built into their system... did you know that HURST has a 4 to 1 safety factor built into their system. Did you know that with a throttle handle actuator you risk trapping your hand while using a cutter. HURST has a star actuator that can be operated 360 degrees around the handle and your hand doesnt get caught. Compare the body structure of HURST with any other manufacturer and you will see the difference in structural strength. Also the tips on the cutter are the largest for a reason. if you send me your home email address i will send you some inside information and confirm that TNT is junk. Did you know they only use a1 dual pilot check valve in the pump and Hurst uses 3 in their system. DON'T get sucked in to LIFE TIME WARRANTIES. it is only offered if the tool was serviced by the TNT dealer, and records kept. Also the dealer is the one who has to warranty the tool no the parent company. anyway i could go on and on... send me your email... i will send the pics and letters to back it up.
stay safe
