Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

What can you tell me about the Rapco Terminator Chain? I am not familiar with this style of chain. Is it durable? Is it quick? Can you feel the resistance in a rafter versus in the decking? Does it stretch?

I have used the Raptor and the Bullet chains before. I love the performance of both but for the price, the Raptor seems to hold up a little better.

I believe this is actually the same chain. I think this is the guy that called me a while back. They actually make the Raptor chain. I may be wrong, but that seems to sound familiar.
Thanks for the input guys.......I beleive my department will be purchasing these since they can buy it on a spool and break off as much as they need. I appreciate your comments. If you find anything else, please let me know.
