Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by skippy Excellent bar for the money
I use this bar at work for overhaul and often times my go to bar if somebody else is grabbing the halligan bar. I have forced roughly 10 or so doors with this and it has been dished out a beating on the fire ground and has still held up nicely. I sandblasted mine and coated it with oil to prevent rusting. Great bar for the money!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by BEARHART Great GO TO TOOL
Been a professional firefighter for nearly 19 years. Got one of these tools about 8 months ago, we welded a 2' section into the middle to make it 5' overall for general utility meeting a happy medium between forcible entry and salvage work.
In addition to the extra length we squared off the shoulders of the fork and paired it with a light 4.5 lb flathead axe as kind of an officers tool package.
I've found it to be a great on lightweight construction for gapping doors, clearing windows,security gates etc.during initial walkaround and softening of a structure. For heavier constructed commercial type doors I will still go to a proper set of irons but for lightweight residential that is predominant on the west coast this tool is quite well suited. Just need to keep in mind that it's not a single piece forged tool and be realistic about how much torque you can place on it.
For roof work we take it along with a Rubbish Hook and our other tools and it adds another dimension to the versatility of our tool compliment giving us a hook with some added knockdown and leverage when we need it for louvering stubborn sections.
As far as overhaul demo goes this is hands down my most destructive tool and is very efficient for clearing sheet-rock from walls and dropping ceilings.
I'm very pleased with it overall especially for the price. The only issue I've had recently was working in tight quarters so we just ordered a second one for our engine company that we will keep at it's original 36" length in order to give us some greater versatility.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by chief329 best tool EVER!!
As a Fire Chief and a Contractor, hands down this wrecking bar is the best. In the fire service you'd pay at least $180. To $200. For the same tool. You can pull ceilings, walls, subfloors, tile, etc. perfect leverage, great length for tight spaces! I have one in my Chief truck and work truck!! I'm trying to find more locally to get one for every fire truck in my department!!!

For the price this tool is a great value! It is marketed for the construction business, but as a firefighter this tool is great for my job as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by RJB62 This tool has exceptional balance and performs as well as anything I ever used in my 30 years of firefighting.
On April 5, 2014 a devastating fire ripped thru a 200 year old farmhouse in my town. I went to help the family start to salvage what little that remained and also start the clean up process. Combining my firefighting knowledge and this remarkable tool I was able to assist the crew in removing the remaining burnt material so the contractors could start the rebuilding process. The combination of prying and pulling in this well balance tool gives the operator the ability to perform several tasks without stopping and reaching for another tool. I would highly recommend this tool to anyone that does any kind of demolition work! As helpful as the tool was to ripping away the destruction, the gift card would be a help toward rebuilding.
