Milwaukee has expanded their hand tool lineup with two new pry bar sizes – 36″ and 42″.
The new Milwaukee pry bars feature an I-beam design for greater prying strength, an all-metal core, and hammer-ready strike cap.
The tips have checkered grip zones to help prevent slipping.
The handles have a tri-lobe shape, with user comfort and control.
The shaft has a chrome finish for easy cleaning and corrosion resistance.
These and the other pry bar sizes are backed by Milwaukee’s lifetime guarantee.
Here’s the full lineup with MSRP pricing as of the time of this posting.
- 8″ (45-74-9208) – $14.99
- 12″ (45-74-9212) - $19.99
- 18″ (45-74-9218) – $29.99
- 24″ (45-74-9224) – $39.99
- 36″ (45-74-9236) – $89.99
- 42″ (45-74-9242) – $99.99
ETA for the new sizes: June 2023.
If you need the smaller sizes, the 4pc set seems reasonably priced at $74.97.
If ordering from Acme Tools, coupon code TOOLGUYD takes $10 off $79 (one use per customer, resets after 30 days).
There’s not much to say here, as this is a rather straightforward hand tool expansion. I see these as a “if you’re in the market for new pry bars or sizes” type of tool, rather than “toss your existing still-functioning tools aside for an instant upgrade”.
I’ve used Milwaukee’s pry bars before, and they’re well-made. I would add that I prefer Milwaukee’s handle style to other brands’.
The lifetime guarantee is noteworthy.
