Holmatro 5000 series offers every spreading capability firefighters need for the extrication of a trapped victim
The most important factor in the development of this series was weight reduction

Lighter than ever and no concessions on performance: Holmatro introduces its new 5000 series spreaders. The most important factor in the development of this series was weight reduction, without compromising spreading force and spreading distance. This has been achieved through a combination of new materials, component integration and innovative design. The result? Five new spreaders with an outstanding performance-to-weight ratio, that significantly reduces the physical burden on the operator. Two models are also available with Greenline battery technology for increased freedom of movement.

Even more lightweight: SP 5240 CL

Within this new series, one model attracts most attention: the SP 5240 CL spreader. The letters CL stand for ‘Compact Lightweight’. Weighing in at just 9.9 kg / 21.8 lb, this spreader is even more lightweight than the other, already very light, models in the new 5000 series. At the same time it offers every spreading capability needed by firefighters for the extrication of a trapped victim. Like all other models, the SP 5240 CL has been tested extensively on the latest car prototypes.
