I work in residential construction and I bought this to remove a large deck where the deck boards had been nailed on with ring shank nails. It works ok, but leaves a lot to be desired. My biggest complaint is that in order to pry a board loose you need to rotate it almost horizontally to get enough leverage. That is a real back killer and can be very difficult especially when you are standing on the joists of a second floor deck. If the paws were a good inch closer to the fulcrum I think it would be perfect. The tool is a heavy weight tool which is nice for brute work, but I was less than impressed with the welding at the bottom. It did serve it's purpose but I think I would look elsewhere if you are in the market for decking removal tool.

If you have a deck that needs taking down this is the tool!!! I had a few concerns before making this purchase; 1) strength of this tool (would it bend - IT DOES NOT!!!) 2) would I be saying to myself while doing my demolition "why pay the bucks when I could have done this with a crow bar" - that thought NEVER entered my mind when I was destroying my deck and 3) before knowing the price I watched the video and thought "I''ll pay $39-$49 for this tool." When I saw the $100 price I initially balked at making the purchase. Always a believer of "the right tool for the job" I did some research and found that all the feedback from customers who had bought this tool was positive.

This is why I made the purchase: I didn't want to start my deck demolition project only to discover that a crow bar just isn't going to do the job. This tool made short work of the old 2x4s on my 30 year old deck. With this tool I was able to remove full lengths of the decking boards rather than the pieces I figured I'd be removing if I strictly utilized a reciprocating saw and a chain saw as I had initially planned on doing.

I thought I'd cut all the boards with a saw - but I still would have had to deal with the nail removal. With this tool I pretty much eliminated all cutting and just pulled out full length boards.

Why this tool works: the boards (nailed in, spiral nailed & screwed) were no match for the torque that this tool has. (Just to experiment I tried using a crow bar on a few boards. It works, but "you have to use more force AND you are bent over," unlike this tool that allows you to be standing upright while "pulling or pushing" on it - a real back saver!)

THIS TOOL IS GOOD BUT NOT GREAT. First the pros: Hefty with a solid feel. Does the job with a minimum of effort. Strong, not bendable. Cushioned handle grip. Well fabricated in the U.S.A.!!!!! Now the cons: Rocks to the side when levering the end of the board, Needs to be lifting both sides of the deck board. Handle could be 6-12" longer for better leverage. Slots for removing nails are pretty useless due to the fact that the tool will rock to the side you are pulling the nail with. This is because the handle is centered between the paws and not in line with them. Now for job performance: The tool is good for lifting decking boards from deck joists. Will even work on doubled up joists, it just barely fits with 3+ inches between the paws. It saved me a lot of time and backache. For pulling stubborn nails from the joists, an old-fashioned crow bar is best. Overall, I'd give it 3-1/2 stars but I give it the extra half star for saving my back..

I never would have rebuilt my 15 year old deck without this tool. I never built a deck before, nor demolished one. One of the reasons that held me back from redoing my deck was removing the old deck board that had at least a 800 nails in it. This tool allowed me to do the job in half the time or less, without breaking my back. It was easy to use, and the little split ends at each end make it a breeze to pull out nails that stay stuck in the joists. Without this tool I wouldn't have even tried demolishing my deck. It is more than worth the money to me, and it is solid steel! The one drawback is that if you work from your house outward. The bar will hit the house for the first 3 or 4 boards and you can't get the leverage to really pop those boards up. However, once you move out enough you can pull up a board in 2 minutes or less!

The tool works great when it is applying force with the tool centered on the joist and both tangs lifting on the deck board. However it is awkward at the end of a deck board when the tool cannot apply force on both tangs. Better to use a crowbar. I would have given it five stars were it not that the tang bent when tried to lift a board that was terminated on its joist. I followed the instructions sent with the tool. The handle did not bend nor did any of the welds break. I was able to bend the tang back into position by driving the tool vertically downward on a solid concrete pad. But that just goes to show that the tangs bend. So I recommend not applying more that 50 lbs at the end of the handle when only one tang is engaged and not more that 100 lb when both tangs are engaged. The tool is useless for pulling nails or screws. Use a claw hammer, nail puller or crowbar. So what you need to remove a deck is this tool plus a crowbar, a nail puller, and a hammer.
