Brute ForceNew

The Brute Force is a revolutionary tool for forcible entry that is also designed to marry with our Tri-Bar (or any halligan). This tool is a sledge hammer with benefits. It has a sledge head for driving the  Tri-Bar, a chisel/axe edge for cutting/ripping and a marrying slot for the Tri-Bar. It can perform all the jobs that the hammer can in addition to great ripping and tearing capabilities.
