Harbor Freight Breaker Bar!

Made my quarterly sojourn to Harbor Freight yesterday with my 88 year young dad.{ He's a real tool junkie }

On my target shopping list was the special on the 1/2" drive, 25" Breaker Bar.

I struggled last year trying to loosen the bolts on the rear tire rim assembly and don't remember how I finally loosened them them up. I torqued them back up after a new tire was mounted w/o any issue but the removal was a bit of a challenge.

This bar is on sale for $9.99 and you will need the bar code scanned from the current ad which are available in the front of the store as you come it. Whattadeal!



Sale ends on March 25th returning to the regular price of $12.99

Regular Listing here . . .
BTW, this tool is made in Taiwan not mainland China.

That's the one I used to get my swing arm loose!

I have an older one I bought at HF years ago that was bent doing something. This current one has done the job so far.

Re: Harbor Freight Breaker Bar!

Gotta love HF!!! I'm issued a Snap-On tool box at work and I have to say, I'm not impressed with the quality of the tools, especially for the price. I like Craftsman or Kobolt tools...lot's easier to get replaced.

Thank a teacher if you can read this, thank a veteran that it's in English.

Re: Harbor Freight Breaker Bar!

If your not impressed with snap on hand tool you must not rely on them every day to make a living.They definately make the best tools.For me I have to decide do I need the best or can I get by with a lesser tool.I probably have 40% snap on tools. They are tools that are obviously superior to anyone elses and make my job easier.I make do with other brands for the rest because I don't want to spend the money.

90% snap-on $80+k and havent bought hardly any since I got married. The look on my wifes face when I bought a $8,000 tool box when she found out it didn't come with any tools was priceless.

Re: Harbor Freight Breaker Bar!

I have about $50,000 in tools and tool box. I need to have it because I'm a professional mechanic. It seems that with everything I have I always need something else. But for the average guy/gal here wrenching their own bike or car there is no need to spend that kind of $. But I do believe in buying quality tools. That one time you round a hard to get to nut or bolt due to a cheap tool you'll understand why.

As a casual wrench I've had Craftsman since I bought a starter set in college to change out water pumps and such in a '60 Comet. Now they are all in a 5' high set of roller cabinets. The breaker bar was an impulse buy for the LT tire changes.

Re: Harbor Freight Breaker Bar!

I snapped our Craftsman breaker bar with a cheater pipe on it. Took it back and they gave me another one. That does look like a pretty good bar for $10.

Re: Harbor Freight Breaker Bar!

Yes back 25 years ago or so, on pay day, The Snap On Truck would show up and I had to take my book out to him and make my payment, and what was left went to the wife.

Not near the investment you guys have but I did buy Deep and Shallow Impacts in 1/2" and 3/8" and some nice wrenches, set of cats paws, and other stuff. I buy Craftsman now as my job does not depend on it. And of course all of the Snap On is not Metric.

The guys I worked next to each had 2 side by side "refrigerator" sized Snap On Boxes. They had everything you could imagine. And the air tools they had were insane.

Nice stuff for sure. Having the right tool for the job is half the job.

For $50k I can replace a lot of tools and bolts which I can round off with an expensive tool just as easily as a cheap one. Sounds like someone should be in acquisitions for Uncle Sam Does your wife read these posts or something?

If you were using a quality "tool" (such as Snap-On), you wouldn't have to worry about rounding off bolts or replacing tools.

Sure no problem, I'll handle that: Take the cheapest, piece of shit China tool (like for find at H/F), and increase it's piece 100 times. Now you're qualified to make
"acquisitions" for Uncle Sam!

Re: Harbor Freight Breaker Bar!

Obviously you don't wrench for a living Atrovarious. Spending 20 or 30 minutes to get a rounded bolt out costs me money. The faster I can do a job the more I make. Good tools let me do that. And yes my wife knows what I spend on tools. She's good with it. Don't get me wrong, I've been wrenching professionally for 26 years. I didn't always have the best tools. I made due with what I could afford. Having done that,I can say with out a doubt there is a difference and it is worth it.

Hell Bob even a complete MORON like me doesn't bother with China tools. AND I can barely "wrench" my huge ass out of bed in the morning.

Even if you're working for yourself, in this economy, with the price of everything where it is, we can't play around. The job has to be done right, the first time. My current project, a "cheapo" audio upgrade, is $1k+. No time for smokin' and jokin'.

That's the best laugh I've had in a while. Did you have to go into a defensive posture? If I did that, I would at least have to wear ear plugs for a few days.

I'm just giving you sh1t but I'll keep it up ...... There are two parts to that equation.... and if the bolt gives.... it gives.... regardless of what you paid for your "tool"...... Maybe you should stop using SAE on Metric bolts Ok I'm done for tonight. I respect your right to pay whatever you want for whatever it is you want to buy.... and I'll fight to the death to defend your right to do so... Ok now I'm done....

I don't know what happens if you break a Snap-On tool. In almost 30 years, I've never done it.

But what do you do when a torch has to be used to "reform" a wrench. Tools have to be expendable in my book.

Two complaints - II wish tool manufacturers wouldn't polish their wrenches. They get too hard to hold. Black oxide is better. And most wrenches are too long.

Well, that beautiful, shiny chrome is going to be a little BLUE!

How about when you have to "make" a custom wrench for a job? Really flat and blue!

Cool Re: Harbor Freight Breaker Bar!

I got the HF bar the other day. Just glad I did not have to pay by the lb. The wife wasn't pleased to hear me say I needed a new tool box because mine doesn't have any drawers that will hold the beast.
I have good sockets.

Re: Harbor Freight Breaker Bar!

I will bite.. I cant afford the pricey stuff (out of work for a bit now) and using a pipe as a cheater isnt good either.. slippage and such....

Re: Harbor Freight Breaker Bar!

I've had mine a while now. I don't expect much in the quality department from Harbor Freight but for the money it's doing a good job.
