Thanks for the tip. I'll have to check the Lowes here.

Handheld wrecking tool.

Is that the smaller one? If so I already have one and I love it. It's evil.

Go buy another one, then your average price will only be $20 and you have less to be mad about. Hell, if you buy 9 more, it'll drop the cost down to $12 each!

If two is one and one is none, what is 10 again?

(30+20)/2= 25

You're one of those gubment guys who figures the rate of inflation, right?

Probably more useful in AL as a Zombie Melee weapon, but I have one in my car kit to use as a hatchet for iced over roads and parking spots to get traction to get moving. Replaced a tomahawk with a evil tool.

Also works on Zombies up here in the Zombie Heartland too

I went to a Lowes in Seattle after seeing this thread, but all they had was the Fatmax for $40. I passed, but still wanted one, so we went to HD just down the road and found the little ones for 19.95 and the Fatmax for 29.95. I bought the big one. I've been fondling it all day. It will go in my car kit when I'm done playing with it.

No price marked my my Lowes so they gave it to me for $15 a few weeks ago :)

You carry one of those in your BO bag?

i think i'll paint it and add to the evilness


Dont mean to rain on your parade but save your money.......I did some disater recovery work after a flood and I took a couple Stanley FAT MAX (I think thats what they were called). Basically big yellow crowbars. They way outperformed those who brought the fubars. mean lookin little thing just not very useful

I like it. Must buy one soon.
Link Posted: 6/7/2009 9:53:38 PM EST

I figure it's useful to have one in a car. It's a crowbar, and potentially you might need to pry on stuff like locks, fence gates, and doors. Plus you can hit a zombie on the head with it.

I've also opened fire hydrants with one just to see if it would do it...

Not as quickly or easily as a hydrant wrench but it will work....

bought one... it's fucking brilliant. It goes through 2x6s like the fist of an angry god.

I only thought I could tear stuff up before....

Saw one of those in use tonight. It worked over the trunk they were trying to open up for us. (Side note: 18 y.o. in possession of alcohol and traveling probably around 100, went airborne, sideways, left road, and overturned. Some ejections, two criticals, and one minor injury. Decent wreck and nearly 800' total distance from start to finish.)

Arfcom is the ONLY place where you'll find two pages of drooling over a friggin tweaked-out neanderthal club.

Everyone's gotta have it. Posters running out to save ten bucks just to take it home and "fondle" it. You know, it's great for smashing windsheilds or in case you need to open a fire hydrant - useful stuff like that. One guy even puts it in his bug out bag. The apocalypse has arrived, he can only take a few items, one of them is this thing.

I must admit, it really is strangely alluring and I kinda want one. I certainly wouldn't want to be the object (animate or inanimate) of its disaffection.

I need to stop visiting here.

At the time of your post I didn't have any. In fact my wife and I were laughing at this thread.

A little while later I went up to the bedroom where she saw me getting ready to go out and asked where I was going. I told her Lowes. She said "this early?" I said "yup." She knew right away and said "You're gonna get that wrench thing." I was at Lowes at 6:00 sharp, the minute they opened.

Here's a pic I took about ten minutes after I got home. Note the time of the last edit on my previous post (5:20) and the time the pic was taken (6:39):



It's actually called the "Flat Max" functional utility bar. It will do everything the others on the thread mentioned (except go in my BOB) in addition to acting as a hammer, nail puller and crowbar. It can even inspire my wife to say "you're such an idiot," which she did.

It is rather beastly. The head alone is 22 oz., heavier than my framing hammer.

I have serious case of FUBAR envy... that one is bigger than mine.

You shouldn't have posted that. Now, If the SHTF, we''ll be seeing a bunch of Arfcommers with the claw of the one you posted sticking out of their BOBs.

I got one too yesterday right after work I ended up getting the slightly beefier model that was marked down from $40 to $30. Took off the tag and left it in the truck. I wish it was made in the USA though.

Also, they're located on the rack with the hammers and not next to the pry bars at lowes (even though they're all in the same aisle).

Lol, no you don't! You need to re-allocate income to cool-tacticool toys, ammo and mounts for your toys!

ARFCOM will change your life. It did mine! Just yesterday I got all excited because I found Vienna sausages at the grocery store next to the spam, because they add a bit of variety to my canned meat preps. No way I would have had that reaction a year ago.

Just let it roll over you like a sweet summer rain!

I bought mine before this post (obviously the same sale though) because I had (gasp) some actual demo to do . Strangely enough, it's great at that job. It might be great for that other stuff too, but that's probably not on my agenda. No plans to krylon it a tacticool color though.

$19.99 in FL last night.

Also picked up 8 cheapo 2 AA flashlights, including the batteries for $8.00. Not great, but @ a $1 a piece, why not?
