Milwaukee Drilling Hammer, Nail Pullers, and Pry Bars

Milwaukee Hand Tools Make Challenging Jobs Less Challenging

Coming this fall, Milwaukee Tool will grow their hand tool solutions even further with a 3 lb Drilling Hammer, Nail Pullers, a Molding Puller, and Pry Bars. Milwaukee looks to provide better versatility, accessibility, and durability to these tools. They seem specifically designed for demolition and remodeling work.

10-Second Summary

  • 3 lb Drilling Hammer with both smooth and milled face
  • Nail and molding pullers w/high-leverage head and wear-resistant grip
  • Induction-hardened pry bars wth ShockShield grips
  • Available starting July–September 2020

Milwaukee Drilling Hammer

Milwaukee designed the 3 lb Fiberglass Drilling Hammer to offer better versatility on the jobsite. It features both a smooth face and a milled face. While the smooth face is designed for general demo and driving applications, the milled face provides additional grip on chisels, punches, stakes, and spikes.

The Milwaukee Drilling Hammer features a high-strength fiberglass handle with reinforced overstrike protection. Pros typically either love or hate fiberglass handles. We find that it significantly reduces vibration. They often introduce additional fragility near the head—particularly if you miss the target. In this case, Milwaukee seems to have mitigated that somewhat, placing additional material right underneath the striking head.

Milwaukee also precision-balanced the hammer for more forceful blows with less effort. Now we just have to hope for a titanium model!

The 3lb. Milwaukee Drilling Hammer hits shelves in July 2020 with a retail price of $17.97.

Nail and Molding Pullers

Milwaukee’s Nail Pullers and Molding Pullers are designed to remove nails quickly and efficiently. They feature a SmoothPull High-Leverage Head for maximum leverage.

On the nail pullers, a wear-resistant grip helps reduce vibration when you smack the cats paw end (Milwaukee calls it a “whale tail”) to remove an embedded nail. The claws feature precision-beveled edges designed to give these pullers a secure grip on nearly-headless nails.

For wedging and prying in tight spaces, the Milwaukee Molding Puller comes with a whale tail claw.

The 9″ Finish Nail Puller comes with 6D-12D nail slots. The 10″ Nail Puller and 10″ Molding Puller are optimized with 8D-16D nail slots. The 12″ Nail Puller features 10D-20D nail slots.

The Milwaukee Nail and Molding Pullers will be available in September. They will range from $12.97 to $18.97.

Milwaukee Pry Bars

The Milwaukee Pry Bars look built to withstand the toughest job site conditions. They’ve been induction-hardened for added strength—meaning they should hold an edge longer. They also feature ShockShield grips for vibration reduction when you strike them.

Both of the available models, which come in 12″ and 15″ lengths, feature high-leverage heads for easier prying.

The Milwaukee Pry Bars will retail for $10.97 and $12.97 respectively. You can pick them up beginning in September 2020.
