A better choice in fencing tools5th June 2018
Olympia Tools has extended its range of specialist fencing products. The business, which distributes hand tools and workwear under the Roughneck brand, has launched a new Roughneck Gorilla Fencing Maul™.
The new maul has been positioned as a Roughneck ‘Gorilla’ tool because – like the other Roughneck products which carry the Gorilla name – it benefits from an innovative design where ‘the shape makes the difference’.
Specifically, it has a 4.5kg (10lb) head, cast from alloy steel and that features two large, round striking faces at either end.
These faces make the Roughneck Gorilla Fencing Maul™ ideally suited for driving wooden fencing posts and a much safer, easier to use and more accurate alternative to another tool commonly used for this task – namely a sledgehammer.
In addition, the head is also threaded onto the tool’s handle ensuring an extremely strong fix and making it virtually impossible for the head and handle to detach.
The handle itself is made from double injected fibre glass with a solid core and a polypropylene jacket which delivers increased shock absorbency. It also features a treble injected TPE soft-grip handle for enhanced user comfort, even after many hours of prolonged use.
The new Roughneck Gorilla Fencing Maul™ joins an existing line-up of fencing products from Olympia Tools which already includes post hole diggers and post rammers.
Other Roughneck Gorilla products meanwhile include Roughneck Gorilla Sledgehammers, Roughneck Gorilla Splitting Mauls and Roughneck Gorilla Bars – arguably the world’s best known and most respected brand of wrecking bars.
Commenting on the launch of the new Roughneck Gorilla Fencing Maul™, Vahe Der Kureghian, purchasing and marketing director at Olympia Tools, said: “Olympia Tools has an active programme of new product research and development and the launch of our new Roughneck Gorilla Fencing Maul™ reflects that.
“It also highlights our commitment to using our in-depth expertise and considerable experience of innovative hand tool design to develop specialist solutions to specialist customer needs.
“Thanks to its many benefits, we’re sure the Roughneck Gorilla Fencing Maul™ will become a popular product with customers in a range of areas – from agriculture to landscaping to general construction.”
