Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by slidnbob This thing works!
We're hired a contractor to do a master bath remodel, which included ripping out two existing bathrooms and building one new one. To save a few bucks I did the demo. This bar was really useful pulling down the drywall, but there are lots of cheaper tools that would have done that task. However, one issue in the demo was pulling up some 1/2" plywood underlayment that had been glued to the subfloor. I set a circular saw to 1/2" depth and cut the underlayment into about 2 sqft sections, but it was still hard to get up with a normal pry bar. With the annihilator I pulled them up with ease.

It's a great multi-use tool. I've used it in a number of destruction projects outdoors, as well as a handy way to haul logs and stumps short distances. Only complaint is how easily and quickly it rusts.

I honestly have no idea how well this works as a tool. It looks like it would be pretty useful. I just bought it for my brother to use as a hand-held weapon in a possible zombie apocalypse.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Junk, don't buy it
I've had two of these break and the "lifetime"
warranty is worthless. I've emailed the mfg
twice and they don't even respond.

The tool works well as a wrecking bar and for straightening a warped 2 x 4 while you nail it. However, you need to wipe it well with oil from time to time otherwise it rusts quickly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Teachag Did its job
I am in the middle of the demo part of a bathroom remodel. the shower and a couple of the bathroom walls were tile set on about an inch of thinset (which I did not know you could put floor to ceiling). After spending a couple days with an air chisel and getting about half of the job done, I bought this as an impulse buy. I had the remainder of the tile torn out in a couple of hours with a fraction of the noise and the dust.
It so far has worked great for smashing through the tile, thinset, and sheetrock; but has been useless in pulling nails. The ends are just too thick for that. I still gave it five start though because it did the job I bought it for by "annihilating" the tile.
At first, I thought it was a little pricey but the time it saved me made it worth it.

This small wrecking bar is a huge helper. I use it for my job as a truck driver. It fits great in my tool bag and does the job of a bunch of tools all in one! Uses include opening frozen trailer overhead doors and freeing up frozen brakes and chipping ice from numerous places around the vehicle. It has been irreplaceable this last winter!

This thing looks mean, so I had to take one home.
After trying to knock some nails out, I noticed the head was actually deforming from the blows. The balance as a hammer was horrible, and the handle was uncomfortable.
The nail puller on the handle's end, was completely worthless. I never found a situation for it to do any useful work, while the puller on the working end, immediately began to bend. The curve in the claw actually straightened, and that was the last straw. The Annihilator was returned for a full refund after maybe 15 minutes of work.
I highly recommend a 42 inch Dewalt wrecking bar. Excellent design and quality, and it will outlast a hundred Annihilators.
