Terra Tamer

The Cascade Rescue Terra Tamer is light, fast and lean.  It weighs in at an astounding 15.40 pounds! The framework and fork system is constructed of Pure Titanium, making the Terra Tamer the lightest all-purpose patient transport on the market.  The super plush 4.25" Fatty tire bounds over trail obstacles and is unbelievably stable.  Rounding out the package is a disc brake and all stainless steel hardware. We've also redesigned our attachment system.  Now, simply slip the custom designed hooks over the top railing of your litter and use the new compact stainless steel ratchets to cinch it down.  With this system, The Terra Tamer can even be mounted on most rescue litters! Weight:  15.40 lbs Height:  32"  Width:  29" (Base/Saddle dimensions: 18.5" X 17.5")

The Terra Tamer has been tested in the most harsh and demanding environments, withstanding brutal abuse.  It excels in nearly all conditions, just at ease on mud, snow and sand as it is rolling over big obstacles blocking your way.  Not only is it the lightest wheel out there, it also can be broken down for easy load sharing and transport.  Don't just suffer through your back country rescue:  TAME IT!

    The weight and portability

    Posted by John on 24th Nov 2023

    We've had ours for a few years now. Along with the lightness, it's the hight if it the our team likes. One issue we find is break cable stowing. Where the cable exits the frame is has frayed, working on a protective fix.

    We removed the rachets and replaced them with 1" cam buckles (NRS straps). Much faster to install onto the litter and just as secure. Otherwise it's a good wheel.

    Quality build

    Posted by Pat Sullivan on 4th Feb 2021

    We have just received the Tera Tamer and our personnel are very impressed by the materials used and the quality of the build.
    There is a significant reduction in weight from the litter wheel it is replacing, and the addition of a disk break will save a considerable amount of work in our rugged terrain. Well done Cascade.

    I was asked to give a demonstration on our stretcher system and give a history on how we ended up with this setup as there are a lot of teams also looking at changing their current systems. On approaching our demonstration it was clear that most were not really expecting much and looked a little uninterested if Im honest but as soon as I asked anyone to pick up the fully assembled stretcher with wheelset they were gobsmacked by the weight. They were really interested in the wheeset with the brakes and very impressed by the small size, weight and ease of use.I also went through the benefits for the team members and not only the casualty and gave examples of different scenarios we have used the handles and wheelset combo which went down very well.

    We have used your wheel on two missions now and the team really loves the new wheel. The large wheel works so well on rough terrain. The litter team was having to wait for the rest of the team because they just wanted to jog down the trail. The cinch /attachment straps are a challenge for some members but once they understand how they work and how to adjust them we are good.

    We used the wheeled litter and handles on our first rescue on Sunday. The new system was great- super easy to maneuver, light weight, and we carried the whole thing, including the litter, into the rescue on the backs of 3 SAR members.TCSAR loves it!!

    This litter is new to our organization and only used on a few missions but so far we are very happy with the product. The product is high quality, light weight and easy to install. Only gave it 4 stars until we have more use experience but fully expect to give it 5 stars.
