Product description: The Dexter HS500 Hot Stick is a rugged yet lightweight manipulation tool that provides personal protection by increasing standoff distance. The unlimited dexterity of the manipulator head allows you to easily grab, move and lift an array of objects. The heavy-duty electric motor generates up to 45 pounds of force, allowing containers to be punctured to reduce potential hazards. Self-locking jaws eliminate the risk of dropping the object during manipulation. Sections can be added in 3-foot increments providing up to 12 feet of standoff.
