Never used the unit before.....

Straight blades might be good for a few things... I'm not too sure if it is as effective as other units on the market currently. Also, using a separate powerpack might be difficult if working with several other tools or even on SCBA
How the hell did I end up here?????

My old station had a set of older Power Hawks. I would stay away from them if you are using them as a front run set of auto ex equipment. Our set fully charged wouldn't even pop a door on a good car at training. We replaced then with a set of TNT heavy hydraulics. If you are looking to use the Power Hawk as your primary auto ex tool I would go and look somewhere else. I've heard a few dept have been switching to the Hurst edraulic and are having good luck with them
