Bostitch introduces a new line of spring steel demolition bars.
Available in two lengths (24 and 36 inches), Bostitch spring steel demolition bars feature precision-ground edges on the crown and toe for improved penetration compared to previous Stanley pry bars. This is critical when prying under materials to separate one object from another. Engineers also widened the edges by 25% on both ends of the bar for improved leverage over previous Stanley models. Additionally, the bars' flat striking surface allows the user to more effectively push or pierce materials such as sheathing, plaster, and sub-flooring.
"By using heat-treated spring steel, our engineers have achieved a 30% lighter design than previous Stanley demolition bars, which is a dramatic difference for professionals who swing heavy pry bars for a living...this could equate to several hundred pounds of lighter lifting every day," explains Strategic Business Unit Leader Chris Woolley. The reduction in weight, combined with several other key features, is sure to make work more productive for contractors, remodelers, and demolition crews alike."
Bostitch spring steel demolition bars offer a 100-year limited warranty. The 24-inch version (model 55-501) sells for approximately $24.99; the 36-inch version (55-502) sells for approximately $29.99.
