Roughneck launches new Pallet BusterPosted on 21 Oct 2017
New tool for dismantling wooden pallets
Olympia Tools, distributor of the Roughneck brand of hand tools and workwear, has extended its range with the launch of a new product designed specifically for dismantling wooden pallets.
The aptly named ‘Roughneck Pallet Buster’ builds on the success of the Roughneck Demolition and Lifting Bar.
Like the Roughneck Demolition and Lifting Bar, the new Pallet Buster is constructed using high quality steel and employs a similar long handled design whilst also incorporating a number of additional features which make it especially fit for its intended application.
These features include an enhanced head to handle angle and a greater handle length - both of which help to increase ease of operation.
Users can employ the tool stood upright, reducing unnecessary bending of the back and the risk of repetitive strain and other injuries. For further comfort, the handle also benefits from a double injected soft grip.
In addition, the new Roughneck Pallet Buster has increased spacing between its jaws - upped from 85mm to 110mm.
This carefully considered enhancement enables the tool to be more effective in breaking widely used Euro (EPAL) pallets. The jaws also feature a specially designed notch which acts as an integrated nail remover.
Commenting on the launch of the new Roughneck Pallet Buster, Vahe Der Kureghian, purchasing and marketing director at Olympia Tools, said: “Through our Roughneck and other brands, Olympia Tools is an expert in developing and bringing to market innovative tools which help to simplify both general and specialist trade and industry tasks.
“The launch of our new Roughneck Pallet Buster provides clear evidence of that expertise.
“It takes an already established and highly regarded tool design and enhances it to deliver significant benefits to those customers across a wide range of sectors who need to dismantle pallets on a regular basis.”
