Where firefighters come to talk training

This is a quick tip showing an alternative push base for a Hydraulic Ram. Spreaders pinched on the rocker panel may or may not be recommended depending on your individual hydraulic manufactures recommendations. This is just a quick option to keep the ram base from "running" down the rocker panel. Drive the halligan spike into the rocker with a axe, sledge, etc. Remember on this push that you would have a piece of cribbing to provide a solid pushing point below the rocker panel. The circle shows where the ram base would sit and the arrow is just visualizing the rams upward push.
