If you could choose between the Stryker or Ferno which one would you pick and why? And if Ferno which model if you have a favorite?

I don't think I've ever seen the Ferno power cot anywhere except a few YouTube videos. I don't think too many people have actually used both in real world conditions to give any objective answer to "favorite" power cot. It's one thing to say you like the Stryker Power Pro over the Stryker manuals or the Ferno manuals, but if it's the only power cot you've ever used, can you honestly say you like it better than the others?

We had a Ferno power cot in our original CCT ground ambulance. I will confidently say Stryker PowerPro.

I have used both the Stryker Power Pro and the Ferno Power Flexx in a 911 setting. I've always felt that the Ferno promoted poor lifting technique even when team lifting. So Stryker for me.

Stryker PowerPro with the loading system.

I have never used the ferno before.

We currently have the Stryker Power Pro with the loading system and it's amazing. I got to extensively demo the Ferno iNX, which I really wanted to like. I didn't like it, more cumbersome to move and vastly more annoying to load/unload than the Stryker.

Only experience I've had with power stretchers is the 2FF model.

The Ferno iNX has a steeper learning curve and is heavy as a sin. But it can “do more” if both people on the cot know what they’re doing, mostly when it comes to negotiating a few steps. I also think it’s easier to load and unload on hilly terrain.

Power-Pro with the loader is way easier to use and doesn’t feel like you’re wheeling around a dying sun.

Both auto charge and have expandable side rails.
