Pallet Buster

Your review: I had worked with pallets for about 2+ years. I just got the Vestil Deluxe Pallet Buster. Let me tell you all, it is the BEST tool that I ever had. Don’t buy anything else. It’s the Bomb. Yesterday I used the tool and writhing an hour, I took apart 15 Pallets. I highly recommend using this tool. 100%

Pros: Easy to use and 100% effective

Cons: A bit heavy. Not a big deal

Your review: I wasn't really sure what to expect with this one since it was only $40. It is a big, sturdy, metal machine. I think it will last a while unless I do something really stupid with it and I might cuz it is bold. The weak point would the long pipe handle I am guessing just because of physics. I am happy with it.

Best Tool for the Job

Your review: I needed a tool for breaking down my deck. This pallet breaker is the best tool for the job. I still used a regular wrecking bar for the boards next to the house, but this tool did the lion's share of the work every where else. I just wish there were a tool for removing old rusty nails without popping the heads off.

Pros: Well designed; solidly built; solid welds. Never once did I feel like the handle was close to yielding.

Cons: It's a tool that will seldom get used for a typical home owner, but it will save many hours, much effort, and more boards.

Go ahead, BELIEVE the hype!

Your review: This tool has made my creative life, that much easier. While it took me a while to make the commitment to purchase, I have zero regrets and am so glad that I did. I am accomplishing three times what I was doing prior to getting this tool.

Pros: 1.) I don't have to stay bent over to get a pallet separated sparking my back from a lot of pain. 2.) It makes EASY work of breaking apart a pallet. 3.) It's easy to use and figure out even with zero instructions included. LOL! 4.) I am absolutely confident there's no amount of pressure or weight that I can put on it that will make the handle bend, therefore making it a very safe product.

Cons: It's pretty heavy and unless you weigh enough to keep the pallet from slipping up, you would probably be most successful with two people; one using the tool and one standing on the pallet to keep it balanced.

This thing is better than expected

Your review: I've tried taking apart pallets with hammers, mallets, pry bars, sledge hammers and a sawsall. Any of those methods take way too much time and work. THIS thing? Super fast. I took the first pallet completely apart in under 3 minutes. NOW, the time-consuming work is not pallet dis-assembly but nail removal. And for that I bought a cordless drill nail remover. Now, a child can take pallets apart with a little training. GREAT INVENTION!!!!!!!!!

Pros: Fast and easy to use. Heavy enough that the weight and sturdiness help with the work. Built extremely well and should last a lifetime and then another lifetime.

Cons: No cons save perhaps a little explanation booklet as to why the pieces inserted into the pallet rotate. I deduce that it's to help them slip into tighter slots when boards are closer together. But maybe there's more reasoning behind it and I'd love to know what the inventor had in mind.

Your review: So many times you see something like this and it ends up being flimsy and disappointing. This is not that at all. This should last a lifetime and then some if not left outside to rust.

Pros: Very sturdy construction. Very durable.

Cons: Painted claws need to be worked to be functional, but this is so minor.

Deluxe Pallet Buster

Your review: I have been using the Deluxe Pallet Buster for only a short period, but it has lived up to all of my expectations. It is built for heavy duty use and cuts down the time to break apart a pallet significantly.

Pros: Works like it is suppose to. I have been very happy with this product. Simple to use and really makes short work of busting apart a pallet. It has saved me significant time. If you are working on pallet wood projects on a regular basis, this is a must have tool.

Cons: I currently do not have any significant cons on this product.

Commercial Grade Pallet Buster Gets it Done

Your review: The Deluxe Pallet Buster is a strong tool that does a great job at breaking down pallets and decking. It is very heavy at 20 lbs so you need to be pretty strong to use it for an extended period. It does a better job than the standard Pallet Buster. The tangs swing so you can get in between tight slats. It takes a bit of practice but work well once you get the hand of it.

F&#@ing Awesome

Your review: So back when I was in the Marine Corps I had a second job at night at Island Demo in Hawaii. My boss taught me two very valuable lessons. Never handle anything more then you have to, and work harder not smarter. I will also add its easy to be hard its hard to be smart. All these come to mind when using this tool. It use to take me about an hour to disassemble a pallet. I have only taken one apart with this tool because its really cold out. It took me about 15 minutes and less broken boards. My time is very valuable so saving 45 minutes a pallet is awesome. Less broken boards means more money in my pocket. I use the wood to make a variety of different items from pallet furniture to nick nakes. So this is great I save more time and make more money. I couldn't be happier with this product. Anybody who messes with pallets and shipping should have this products.
