good quality
This is a nice quality tool. The reason for not giving it a 5 is that it will only work with a full height nut. On a short nut the pin rides up over the edge of the nut . This is not mentioned anywhere on the packaging.

Slips off nut

Although this device appears heavier duty than my 40 year old nut splitter, its design leaves something to be desired. My old one had a floating head in a socket, and it adjusted well to the flat side of a nut. This new one has a fixed head with a rounded tip, and because it rotates with the device's bolt rather than staying still like it should, it tends to slide off the nut. It may work better on large nuts that more totally fill the pocket, but If I can find a better design out there, I will be taking this one back to Sears. To work more effectively, one would have to drill an indentation in the nut for the rounded-point head to seat into, so it would stay there long enough for the cutter to start digging in on the opposite side and split the nut. The reversible cutter could be an advantage, but turning it upside down did not help when the rounded head kept rolling off the opposite flat.

good product

I bought this to use in my shop. It was a good product. It worked really well for the bolt I was trying to crack. Sears was really good about getting it to me on time too.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

A Quality Craftsman Tool

This is a quality last resort kind of tool that is able to remove fasteners without damaging the bolt threads. It is always better if you can wrench the nut off but this will save your bacon if you can't. The cutter remains adequately sharp after several uses but is replaceable if needed. Every auto mechanic toolbox should have one of these!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Decent

Worked decently enough. Kind of big so you might need multiple sizes for different jobs. If it's a soft metal it doesn't crack them as easily. Kind of just digs in a lot.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

needs to be reconfigured

Appears to be well made. The point at the end of the screw bolt needs to be reconfigured so it won't slide off nut to be cut.

works great

Buy quality tools for stuff like this unless you need some Chinese junk that only works a couple of times. I have one at home and at work.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

good quality

this nut cracker is strong. It doesn't always work the way you think it will and sometimes its hard to fit it where you need it but if you can reach it this can split it. Bolt out is usually a better option though

I would recommend this product to a friend.

excellent product!!!

after using i couple of cheap brands that busted and fell apart, my father told me to try this. cant thank him enough it worked wonderful. i used it to bust loose a rusted nut off the top of a shock on my truck. It helps if the user has a little patience, and use a 1/2 wrench with it. Some of the other reviews say that its to big, i think if it was any smaller it would lose some durability.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
