If imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, it looks like Stanley’s FUBAR has a new admirer: The Truckman’s Professional Demo Tool. Duluth Trading, who sells this hammer from hell, claims that “by design it does the work of 4 or 5 standard demolition tools.” The big difference? The Truckman is more of a modified hammer than a new form of tool.
That head is stress-relieved and induction heat-treated for strength, and you can chop with its front edge, bash with its crown, and pry with the rear. Essentially, it’s a demolition hammer.
It’s also a bit on the steep side pricewise at $70. Then again, if you were trying to escape a burning building — or have a professional need to get back into one — this might prove handy.
While the Truckman has a blade on one edge, it’s obvious that this is an entry into the same market as Stanley’s demo rig. The message seems clear enough: large multi-function bars are coming, which means you won’t have to take any crap from any building — just knock it down.
