bigger rescue tools, i.e. cutters are bigger and so are the spreaders.
Plus other power/petrol tools like a Quick cut.
Was told a few other items but can't remember at the moment.

To tell ya the truth mate there is not much difference between the cutting and spreading gear anymore compared to what the new pumps are running. They do however have hydraulic jacks and airbags for lifting very heavy weights eg:trains and trucks and they carry alot of wood cribbing for when they lift this weight. Apart form that and the saw there there is alot of difference anymore
