Your review: this item tends to break very easy

Works well/does not hold up to wear

Your review: This is a great product for picking up metal parts and saving the back. The only issue is they break over time. Partly due tot he way it is used, but the design could be better also. Our operators are slamming it down on partsm which creates a lot of wear on the bottom plate and the rivets holding it together. over teh course of about 2 months the plastic sides stretch and are misformed making the rivets loose. When this happens the canister comes apart making it unusable. Also from slamming the item on the parts, the bottom plates wears thin and will eventually break off altogether from fatigue.

Pros: If used lightly, a great tool. Good price easy to use Made in America

Cons: Breaks easily when not used lightly. the design could be more sturdy.

Your review: We are in the automotive manufacturing industry and this tool is wonderful. We have components with sharp edges stored in places that require you to bend down to scoop up. This tool solves both issues. No more bending over and not more cuts or scrapes. I could see a larger diameter being used successfully.

Pros: Powerful magnet Easy to use release lever Durable design if used properly. Good price

Cons: Release lever, if squeezed hard enough can pull through the top rendering the spring action useless.

PowerMag has got the right stuff!

powermag review

Your review: The unit does do what I expected which was to pick up more metal parts at a time for our packaging line.

Pros: stronger magnet

Cons: the spring for the release handle had to be repaired on the top and the "body" of the unit is not as durable as it should be. the hand hole on the release handle could have been made with a larger opening to fit large hands.

Good magnet and easy to use.

Your review: I would give it 5 stars if the magnet were a little stronger for how big it is. But it is plenty strong enough for my uses and works well. Good product!

Power Mag XL Release

Your review: THe magnets work great for picking up washers, wires, nuts and bolts from our shop floor. THe only issue I have seen is wearing around the shaft area of the release that allows the spring to become unloaded on the realease handle. Possibly shoring up that area with a stamped washer or some other method would improve that defect.
