" "Beastly" as mentioned before is quite accurate for this hunk of steel. If this cannot get it done for a 3/4....then you are not going to be having a good time. "

" I had some lugs on a dump truck that were over tightened. They had to come off. I was willing to sacrifice my titan breaker bar to get them off, so out came the eight foot pipe, never a good idea. IT WORKED all the lugs came off and the titan is still like new. The lugs were retightened perfect with just the breaker bar. Very very handy to have around. "

" Puts my puny 1/2" breaker bar to shame. Bought this breaker bar to remove brush hog blade and wheel lug nuts from my dad's tractor which is located about 120 miles from my house. didn't want to get down there and not have enough muscle. This tool did not let me down. Should come in handy on the wheel nuts on front drive cars too. "

The last breaker bar you'll ever need (or want)

" I am in the business of working on diesel motors, and as anyone familiar with that task knows, the flywheel bolts are some of the hardest to remove. I've tried my Ingersoll Rand Thunder Gun impact wrench (625+ lb. ft. of torque), and the bolts didn't budge. I had also tried my 12" and 18" breaker bars, even using cheater bars, and still they didn't move.
So, I found this breaker bar online and bought it, hoping it would do the job. the only problem I've had since buying it is that it develops so much torque, I now have to use a jackstand to hold the motor in place. It has broken loose every single bolt I've put it on. It is a large, long breaker bar so you might have to get creative to get enough room to get a full turn on it, but other than that, this is one of the most handy and impressive tools I've purchased. And the look I get from my buddies is priceless once they see a nearly 4 foot breaker bar come out!
Two notes of caution: first, is that the breaker bar end doesn't include a ball to hold a socket firm; this means if you aren't applying constant pressure or paying attention, the socket can come off. Second is that due to its overall size and heftiness, if the bolt you are trying to loosen isn't a high strength bolt, you can accidentally break it due to the forces being applied. Either way though, it removes every nut and bolt one way or another!
I would highly recommend this to anyone that ever needs a decent breaker bar. "

" I bought it for use in an auto repair shop where I regularly break all kinds of tools. I have found it especially useful for removing large suspension nuts where an impact wrench will have most of the force absorbed by the rubber bushings. I used it on a stubborn axle nut on a pickup the other day and it worked excellent. We have removed a number of trailer balls without the aid of the torch, which is nice so we don't melt all of the plastic that are on bumpers now. I would highly recommend it and have recommended it to people at the shop. If nothing else, it's size is impressive! "
