Trucker’s Friend vs Handy Rescue Tool


Father's Day is coming up and you may be wondering which multi-tool will be perfect for your dad. Here's a quick comparison between two of our best-selling tools.

THE SIMILARITIES

  

Both are made in USA, and backed by a Lifetime Warranty.  Both tools are cast from high-quality steel and feature the best-of-class NUPLA handle – with the same overall dimensions.  You can’t go wrong with either for any jobs that require hacking, pulling, prying, pounding, demolition – or even self-defense.

THE DIFFERENCES

Trucker's Friend™ - All-Purpose Survival Tool Made in America

The Trucker’s Friend features a contoured nail puller and wire-twist, positioned  at the top of the toolhead. In the Handy Rescue, this feature is replaced by a reinforced pry-bar.

 

The Handy Rescue Tool 

The Handy Rescue Tool (a.k.a. HRT) also includes a gas-cutoff wrench. The pry-bar and wrench are key features for professional rescue workers, who are the key audience for the Handy Rescue.
