    Smile FUBAR in USE

    We keep one on our truck and it works well ripping plastic window sashes out. I'm going to get for for personal use. The pointed end doesn't do well against auto metals (prying up to expose engine) Stick with a good haligan for that.

    Also noticed it wasn't a "two handed" tool. Keep it safe fellas.

    Josh:

    What do you think of the weight of the FUBAR? Is 4 lbs too heavy?

    I've been carrying one as my personal tool for a few months now...very useful.

    I did modify the jaws on it (a bit of grinding and a bit of welding) so it can be used as a hydrant wrench. If I was feeling very industrial, it woudl be easy enough to modify to also include a gas valve wrench.

    The weight hasn't bothered me.

    I remember seeing this when it first came out. I also thought how this might be a great personal tool. Can someone PLEASE post pics of the modifications you all made? The two things I thought would be good additions would be the hydrant wrench and gas shut off, both which have been mentioned. Also, for those of you who have altered it, would it be possible to alter it somehow to use as a spanner wrench (might come in handy on a high rise where the standpipe cap is tight).

    Stay Safe

    I see your point about the Standpipe caps, But, would tapping the the Lugs with the Hammer work??....... Just a thought.......... I am going to try to get one of these tools myself, just to see what I can come up with.

    I'll try to get a pic of mine and post it soon.

    As a sidenote, I was carrying mine on my gut belt, but it now lives in my gear locker. I take it when I know I'll want to use it, but typically that is only in setting up for training (using it as a traditional demo tool).

    For actual use, I found it to be too heavy to carry comfortably, too bulky to put on a gut belt and forget about it, and too little to be of great aide in actual fire conditions. I kept finding myself looking for a set of irons instead of using the Fubar.

    They have a smaller version, and a larger version. Smaller tool weighs 2.5 #'s and the large tool weighs 8 #'s, almost like a sledge with features.

    Found some other tools that are good for overhaul. The top three are made by Demo Dawg, they do not have the weight advertised. Next is called the Gutster, some fire departments in the North are using them. And the last set are called "The Wreckers", this is my favorite shape for a pry bar, very versatile..

    they had this tool at fdic in the spring. It had a hydrant wrench built into the back of the jaws as well as gas shutoff at the pry end. they were asking for ideas and the fire version was supposed to come out around november. It wasn't going to be sold at lowe's or home depot, they said smaller hardware stores like ACE hardware.

    Looks like someone at Stanley was listening..........

    I have one of the original FUBAR tools, and it works great for general construction/demolition. Even in it's smaller size, it does well as a prying tool, and with the new larger sizes, it probably could easily be used on most residential doors to force them. I can only surmise that since the original tool is good, solid, well built, fairly fireman proof tool, this new FD versions might catch on. I think the small 18 inch version would be a good tool to carry for an officer.

    I had some trouble with the above link, I just went to the Stanley home page and looked under new products and found the 3 new versions.
