(Note that my review of the Annihilator will tell you the difference between the 14-inch and 18-inch versions of that tool, if you're comparing those.)
Feel: The Trucker's Friend is lighter than the Annihilator thanks to its fiberglass handle where the Annihilator is all steel with a hard plastic sleeve around the grip. The Friend's actual grip is shock-absorbing rubber designed to provide an extremely good grip even if you have on thick gloves. The ridges are set to keep it from sliding out of your hand. The Annihilator's grip is hard plastic and does not aid grip or absorb shock at all, and was my main complaint about that tool. Using the Annihilator as a hammer without padded gloves is painful.
Construction: The Trucker's Friend is well-made. It has enough steel below the blade and hammer poll to protect the handle from overstrikes, and the steel is good axe-steel, probably drop-forged. The fiberglass handle is stronger than most people could break. The Annihilator stood up to two days of demolishing a fence for me, but reviews for it show that others aren't so lucky, so there may be quality-control issues with that tool. The Friend doesn't appear to have that problem. Since MY Annihilator is fine, I'll call this a tie.
Power: The heavier weight of the Annihilator should make strikes with it more powerful than the Friend, but it doesn't because too much of the weight is in the shaft.Read more ›
Even if you are not part of a SAR team, this is a tool that any home-owner or construction worker would appreciate.
Anyway, it's a nice destruction tool. Good weight, fiberglass handle with a heavy rubber grip. I tested it pulling nails, and there's little to no flex in the handle when pulling regular nails. You can really get it to move if you're pulling the old, heavy nails out of larger posts. But that's normal for any hammer.
The blade isn't super sharp, could use a good run over a sharpening wheel. But out of the box it can do some serious damage to walls/boards. I used it to smack up some fiber-board pieces from an old desk kit. Worked great.
Overall, a nice tool, and face it, it looks cool. I'm sure that's one reason these are popular.
But take a look at the OTHER product page on Amazon, it shows another angle of the tool and you can see the oversize much more clearly.
