Long Pry Bar


Recommended Posts

Evening all,

So I've been finding that mines not long enough recently...  But pretty surprised how expensive the longer ones are!  Anyway, I do need to invest in one as I've got a few jobs coming up that will be far easier with a ~3ft/90cm pry bar for bottom ball joints etc.

Ideally want one with a handle rather than a claw hook at the other end.  Don't want to spend much but obviously want one that isn't going to snap on the first use.

So any preferred makes or a link to one would be great??  Online or instore, either is fine.

I got a set of four pry bars ranging from the small 25cm, 50cm, 75cm and the longest is 1M all with handles, from the local motor factor a few years ago.  I vaguely recall paying £35

When I need more leverage, a scaffold pole will fit comfortably over the handle of the 1M pry bar:laugh:

If you just want the one, Laser have a 900mm with a handle


and Clarke have a 900mm wrecking bar type

More leverage than 1m?  What are trying to remove lol!?

The Astra's rear axle when changing the the bushes, it was supposed to drop down once the bolts were removed: it didn't. The 1M pry on it's own made little difference but with scaffold pole extension, it was eased out with little resistance.

Here's a slightly cheaper Franklin Tools one eBay, seller does accept best offer too

Your just needing some more muscle and a few more Chinese takeaways lol. 

More muscle would be good, not sure I can buy that for £20 posted though. :laugh:
