The product description says that this tool has 4 different uses, but that's not really true. I can't imagine using it for anything but breaking stuff. If you wanted to use it as a hammer or a "board bender" or something, it seems like it might not be that great.
But if all you want to do is knock down some walls or kill some enemies, this is the way to go.
Job 1: remove baseboards. DO NOT USE THE FUBAR FOR THIS! Stanley has another tool well suited to the job. Their SuperWonder pry bar is perfect for removing things that you do not want to kill.
Job 2: remove fireplace. The FUBAR (hereafter referred to as Bender because I cannot stop laughing my "evil Bender from Futurama" laugh when I use this thing) chewed through the 1990 particleboard blight in record time. My wife was convinced that the mantle piece was part of the structure of the house, it was on so solid. Bender ripped it off like a paper towel. It was into the studs with four 3" wood screws and the house wept when I tore it off. I felt like a Mohel. I also made short work of the hearth by using Bender like a crowbar.
Job 3: tear our wall. As other reviewers have mentioned, this thing is really good at tearing apart walls. The whole wall came down in about 10 minutes.
Job 4: Tear out carpet. Admittedly, Bender was not very good at ripping up carpet but he did a marvelous job at ripping up nail strips and yanking staples out of the plywood that had become too gummed up with underlay to nail down.
This tool will be framed after the job is done. It is a work of art.
It's usefulness, however, for general construction is more limited. I got it to use as a pry bar and tweaker for framing/deck building. Some might find it too heavy to have on a tool belt w/ another framing hammer, but the weight isn't what got me. My biggest complaint is the pry bar end. It really isn't long or flat enough to use as either a pry bar or a crow bar. It's too sharp to leave in your belt because it cuts into your leg. Stanley should either add another six inches to the length or move the pry bar to the end of the tweaker and just stick a curved handle on the end.
Overall, good if you're doing demo or not planning on carrying it in your belt all day while moving around.
The heft is amazingly well-balanced and optimized for smashing things. The hammer and claw is great for ripping things apart especially drywall, wood, and even sheet metal shelving. The pry bar is great for jamming into tighter squeezes. During our last renovation, my first job with this was to make more things fit into our dumpster by making big things into little things. I cannot express how well suited FatMax is for such tasks. In fact, I have to admit I had a little too much fun - a dangerous part of wanton destruction is the impact vibration damage to your limbs. FatMax does a good job of minimizing it for anything soft but try not to get carried away with metal and rock. A few more words of caution: wear protective gloves (especially around the fingers and knuckles if you plan to get carried away) and eye protection (things will be splattering).
On a bit of a side note, I notice that others have commented the usefulness of FatMax for zombies. As much as I love this item, I have to disagree. The FatMax is good for a strong first swing but then horrible for defending against nasty zombie bites. Or for a quick followup blow. Or a quick blow to another zombie since they do tend to congregate. It would however be incredibly useful at jamming a moving wall of spikes should you fall into such a pit trap.
