- To prevent rust, keep the tool stored in a dry environment. Apply a thin covering of light machine oil to the head of the tool with a cotton cloth, giving it time to be absorbed by the finish. Wipe off any excess. Apply new oil when needed.
- If rust occurs on the surface of the tool, it can be removed with fine steel wool and light machine oil.
- For both safety and utility, it is important to maintain the sharp edge of the Trucker's Friend. After repeated heavy use, the blade may begin to dull. If this happens, use a metal file to re-sharpen.
- CAUTION: Safety goggles are recommended when using the Trucker's Friend.

Bought this for my bug out bag. Well made. American made. Can't wait for the zombies to come so I can try it out
I can't teach it to tie down loads, but it does everything else!
By Mark A. Brown
I have one in all of my vehicles. Really no end of uses for it.
He's a truck driver and I figured this would be a great multi use tool
By Zed Johnson
I sent this to my brother as a gift. He's a truck driver and I figured this would be a great multi use tool. Especially also since truck drivers can't carry. Which is dumb but this item should help with that and I'm definitely going to buy one for myself also.
I drive a truck and this is the best tool to have in it
By B Paul Thind
I drive a truck and this is the best tool to have in it. Ended up using it the first week I got it. Would totally recommend this to other road warriors out there.
This thing works just like described. The lesser reviews are obviously from non Professionals...
By Man of Carbon Steel
This thing works just like described. The lesser reviews are obviously from non Professional Truck Drivers. CAN be used to help Tighten truck tire chain cam locks. Will chip any Ice, Destroys anything made of wood. If you can sharpen steel on a Grinding wheel this thing becomes wicked. Will pull Nails or screws out of wood or TRUCK TIRES.( 4 stars only because it does need a little sharpening to cut fire wood or kindling). After that it is crazy sharp. I Would Highly Recommend this product if you want it for what it is intended for!
The uses are only limited to what you can think of?
Like it says it's a trucker friend or any industrial vehicles.
The uses are only limited to what you can think of?
My friends are all buy one for themselves
A True Trucker Friend
My wife got me this for Christmas. I got it a little early but she figured with winter coming up I may have to use it.
I am a truck driver that spends a solid 14 hours a day on the road doing drop and hooks. I have to say this thing has come in handy more than once. I use it all the time to tap tandem pins and thump tires. The pry bar is perfect for lifting those stubborn doors and getting them opened and closed. It hardly ever leaves my side. I have helped a few fellow truckers with it and it sure is an attention grabber. I think I have sold 10 of them just by pulling it out at the docks and truck stops. I have not had the opportunity to use the chain puller but I am sure it will make putting them on much easier... I know I am going to have to do it because I drive through The Gorge on I-40 everyday.
My wife says it looks smaller than in the photo but I think it is perfect size and weight. I am in love with this tool. I highly recommend!
I love this thing
By Jason Merrifield
I love this thing. The tools do work. I have actually split logs(2-3 inches) with it. And for the Zpocolipse this is the tool.
I would recomend this tool.
By Wilford C. Mangold
Appears to be well made, and will be a good additional to camping and survival situations, also ordered the leather cover and strap which will help with carry and storage. Going to get another to keep in My Jeep for off road kit.
I have 3 of these, one in each vehicle and one for around the house. I have used it out in the woods, at the campsite, I've even used it to tear apart a car to get it ready for the demolition derby. This thing takes all the abuse you can throw at it. The ones in the car are getting just a slight bit of rust on them, but they also are exposed to temp changes and such ( one in a trunk, the other in a truck-box ) but a little scrub with some scotchbrite and a spray with some silicone and they looked good as new. I've missed my target and hit with the handle many times and not had it crack or break. You do get a work out using if for extended periods, but it's to be expected. This is a great Made in the USA item and great for any outdoorsman.
Super cool tool
By Samuel D. Self
I love this thing.I used it to demolition my kitchen and it was awesome. I take it camping with me and it's one of my go-to tools. It took a bit to get the blade sharpened but it's durable as hell.
The Camper's Friend, too!
When making your essential emergency car kit or a basic camping kit a hatchet/hammer combo must be included, especially if it incorporates an axe, spanner, hammer, nail puller, tire chain hook, pry bar, and lever into a single, well made and rugged body. When you put all those together you have the Trucker's Friend, a 21-inch combo-tool made by Innovation Factory. It is easy to use and sooo versatile. I love it and it has replaced three other tools in our camping kit. I think we will get more, one for each of our vehicles, too.
It's nice having a tool that can bust
I have used this tool for multiple jobs, from chopping limbs off trees, to busting up an old fence. It's nice having a tool that can bust, cut or pull old nails without missing a beat. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a handy tool for around the house, or to keep in your vehicle for personal protection.
A hand full of tool.

Just what they said it was. A hand full of tool. Strong and very useful.

BY linon June
it's really great when you can give your adult child an present that makes him as excited as when he was a kid. He loves this, finds a lot of use, and his friends are envious.
I love it.
Works even in my garden. I love it.
Great multi purpose tool
This is the real deal. I have used it twice during the winter to chop ice out from a top a drain and clear out ice from under garage door. It is well built and the handle fits well into your hand.
By tom austin
I've used this tool from the first day I got it. Very rugged, very versatile. I've used it fence building, stake driving, as a pry bar, all kinds of jobs. It is well built, strong and well thought out. The blade took a little time to sharpen but holds its edge well.
By Anthony Gaffney
this thing is awesome it is probably one of the best survival tools out there it is small enough to carry and seems pretty durable im going to stress test it soon. no bug out bag should be without one of these attached to the side of it
Outstanding tool for Search-and-Rescue, or for the home-owner
By Tom Beardmore
The Trucker's Friend (aka the Handy/Rescue Tool) came to my attention following the May 2011 tornado in Joplin. I served as a search-and-rescue volunteer following the tornado that devastated the city. Search-and-Rescue (SAR) teams are self-equipped, and need to carry appropriate supplies, gear and tools for the mission. Weight and efficiency are big considerations. The Trucker's Friend is an ideal tool because it does so much, and conserves weight by not having to carry several tools. The Trucker's Friend is a versatile, lightweight and affordable tool.
Even if you are not part of a SAR team, this is a tool that any home-owner or construction worker would appreciate.
By Robert G.
Great tool to have with you in structural firefighting.
More practical than I expected
By Michael Barnetton
Besides looking like you are totally ready to kill you some zombies, this tool is actually quite well made, and is a good addition to your trunk (especially if you lock yourself in hiding from zombies). It's not quite as big or menacing in real life as it is in pictures, but I'm putting them in each of our cars, as they could come in handy if stranded during a storm, having to bend/cut sheet metal after a minor accident, a rescue tool if you come upon an accident, or a heck of a handy item for the apocalypse.
By martin j bangart
as a career firefighter, this trucker's axe works great inside any structure fire. it is not to heavy to wear you out and at the same time has enough weight to do the job
