The EQUALIZER - Adjustable Litter Handle System
Finally! A litter handle system that actually works. The Equalizer represents years of R&D by Cascade Rescue Company. The Equalizer easily and quickly attaches to all Cascade Professional and Advance Series litters. It will even fit other popular brand name litters. The Equalizer is available in both Titanium and Stainless Steel models and features a unique 24 position system allowing the operators to quickly change handle positions based upon Operator height or varying terrain conditions. No longer is your downhill team mate reaching into the air to level the litter on steep descents, while the uphill Operator in stoop down low.
For transport to the scene, or for high or low incline work, the handles of the Equalizer may be positioned so they "nest" against the side of the litter, or removed entirely and stowed in a pack. The Equalizer is so light you'll hardly know it's there.
Titanium Professional Series: 7.35lbs
Stainless Professional Series Handles: 10lbs
Titanium Advance Series: 9.7
Stainless Advance Series: 14.6
Teton County SAR is totally hooked on our new wheeled litter and handles. It's hard to imagine ever going back to the old system. Wouldn't be surprised if we buy another set someday.
