New Britain, CT, May 2007 – Building on the success of the award-winning FatMax® Xtreme™ FUBAR™ demolition tool, Stanley introduces the new compact FatMax® FUBAR™ II demolition tool to its line of professional demolition tools. This multi-purpose, 5-in-1 tool incorporates many of the same features and benefits found on the original FUBAR™ demolition tool into a smaller, lightweight design that fits easily into a hammer loop on a tool belt.
Comparable to a framing hammer, the FatMax® FUBAR™ II demolition tool combines a 22 oz head with precision balance providing the user with greater control and accuracy. At a total weight of 2.5lbs, the FatMax® FUBAR™ II demolition tool can be carried around comfortably in a tool belt while its compact design allows it to fit easily into most tool boxes. Packed with unique features like a serrated jaw for gripping two inch lumber, a heat treated striking face, a tapered nail slot for pulling nails and a beveled chisel end, the FatMax® FUBAR™ II demolition tool provides the versatility and functionality users crave. Forged from one piece of solid steel and coupled with a contoured soft touch grip for a secure and comfortable hold, the FatMax® FUBAR™ II demolition tool is an ideal multi-purpose tool.
“Through our extensive R&D process following the introduction of the FatMax® Xtreme™ FUBAR™ demolition tool we discovered a desire for a lightweight, compact version that could be easily carried in a tool belt,” said Mike Marusiak, global product manager for The Stanley Works. “By shortening the overall length, decreasing the number of serrated jaws and reducing the head weight to 22 ounces, we were able to reduce the weight by half creating a FUBAR™ demolition tool that fits perfectly into a standard hammer loop.”
The Stanley® FatMax® FUBAR™ II demolition tool has a suggested retail price of $29.90 and is available at hardware stores and home centers wherever STANLEY® products are sold.
