Win a Pulverizer from Tool Snob!
Jackson has been nice enough to set aside a brand new Pulverizer for us to give away to one of you for all your pulverizing needs.
If you're curious about our thoughts on the tool, they're in the last post. If you don't care and want to get to the "How to Enter" part, read the next paragraph.
In order to enter to win, please leave a comment at this post telling us what would be the first thing you'd pulverize once you got this tool in your hands. Please feel free to add in any details...how you'd pulverize it, when you'd pulverize it, why you'd pulverize it. In can be anything too; from your crappy old back deck to your mother-in-law's car.
So have at it. In a week or so, maybe two, we'll pick the best one. Or maybe we'll have our cat pick it.
If you just want to go ahead and buy one, a Pulverizer can be had at Amazon.com.

In our attempt to improve teh curb appeal of the house we added belgium block around the flower beds. Now I could really use a pulverizer to remove the spilled concrete. Looks like a great tool!
Another deck destroyer here! Ours is the fun arsenic loaded stuff, not that it is any worry at the rotted stage it is in. I have never like wood decks, especially the one that was installed by the previous owner, with its popped nails I practice my longshoreman's language skills with nearly every day I decide to go out without shoes. Oh, I dream of its destruction and replacement with pavers...
Ooooh this is perfect for my apartment. The numbnuts who replaced the carpet didn't put the padding in right. There are spots in my carpet where the padding bunched up and feels like I'm stepping on marbles.
I'd smash every one of those high spots with a vengence
Bookmarked this site. love it!
I would pulverize the back deck. It was built with the first generation of the "safer" pressure treated wood and has rotted out already. Then I would pulverize the ground hog that has setup shop in my garden.
I would smash about 100 bricks and 200 broken bricks to make to make some good filler both for the holes my dog has dug and just to get rid of the cluttered look to my yard!
I want to use this for pulverization duties while demo'ing the rural bar/restaurant I plan to purchase in the next few months. I'm going to have to tear out the whole top floor and put in two apartments. Before you can build, you must destroy!
I'd pulverize all the roadblocks and communication barriers those yahoos in Washington are arguing about so they can finally do some real work.
For a project my wife tried was making a batch some acrylic polymer with some masons sand as she had done dozens of times before. The mixture spilled and according to her she followed "my" advice about leaving it to harden which would facilitate easier cleanup. On a disposable bench surface this is true. She spilled the mixture outside on the brick paver patio, which the dozen pavers and hardened sand mixture has to be broken up and relaid out. I'll rebuild the path, but I'm not cleaning up the embedded sand mixture.
Essentially, I would like to win the tool so I can literally tell my wife to "pound sand".
I'd pulverize anything related to the shingles on my attic ridge vent that were mounted using a standard small head air nailer. This morning was the third time a section blew off. Like the contractor that did the work and was too cheap to buy longer roofing nails to do the job right, even with the pulverizer I probably still won't remove all the poorly secured shingles...
Most of my demo work for the season is done, but I do have some gutters on the garage that need removing. I also have some blocks that I could pulverize for fun!
We just moved to Iowa - and I have some diverse projects to destroy from the previous owner.
I have a secction of sidewalk - cracked now, and need to pass a drain tile under the sidwalk so next winter I don't have a skating rink out front. Also have parts of a deck to pulverize - stairs and some rotting worn out surface planks.
So if you don't pick me - then I think Bill should get it... (Bill Fellner at April 17, 2011 12:34 AM) - I had a similar situation in a previous house a few decades ago...
And this might keep him from the loonly bin.
I would use this to pulverize an old plaster and lathe wall in my parents house that needs to have the plumbing and electrical upgraded.
I am remodeling my basement and I need this tool to move some plumbing for the bathroom
I would use this to rip out all the crappy built in shelving in our basement that the previous owner made from left over scrap lumber. It is lop sided and looks hideous. But I want this be cause it is personal now. The guy shot nails in the wall, drilled bolts, hammered wedges and even used construction glues. There was no rhyme nor reason. This section of the wall and such fine handy work has already cost me a chunk of skin, some stitches, and more than a few explicitives!!! All because of the inconsistencies and someone's paranoia that the shelves/bookcases had to stay up thru an earthquake, tornado, bombing, and an overall Armageddon from alien invasion! My wife won't let me take thermite to the wall nor a jackhammer. I want these shelves/bookcases gone and I want them gone with extreme prejudice!!!!
I think the first thing I'd pulverize is my xbox360 that did the red ring of death. I'd do it in my garage as soon as I received my prize!
I'm currently doing a complete overhaul on a 100 year old house. Unfortunately most of the pulverizeing that needs to be done is already done but there is still more to go. The list of things includes
1. 1970's stove that the schizophrenic that used to live there painted gold.
2. the old claw foot tub that the schizophrenic painted black and pink.
3. The old box gutters on the house
4. 3 Chimneys
5. The squirrels living in the upstairs closet
6. The kitchen windows the schizophrenic painted red (even the glass).
I would finish pulverizing the middle bedroom, My son was going to remodel it half way through he decided not to... Leaves me with a huge mess!
My parents bathroom... Id pulverize it, rebuild it and pulverize it again on principal. Its that bad.
I would love to pulverize my kitchen. I have been saving up to buy new cabinets and destroying the old ones with this tool might make the task a little less frustrating. I can imagine it now! Ripping, prying, and pulverizing. I would be more than happy to review and take photos of the pulverizing...to share if you'd like, not just for the scrap book. Thanks.
I'd totally wreck my shed with this thing. I'm rebuilding it this spring/summer and one of these looks like a great way to take the 50 year old one down!
Funny you should mention mother-in-law . . . .
My father-in-law recently passed away after a two year battle with cancer. My mother-in-law, along with young children, lives in the country. Although I wouldn't trade it for anything, it seems that everytime I visit my "punch list" grows. Maintenance and upkeep can be a real pain.
Anyway, the front porch railing is in serious disrepair. Wood rot galore. I would gladly use the Pulverizer to make quick work of removing the existing railing in preparation of building a new one. Of course, if picked, the work would not stop there as I'm sure there are many more tasks that need pulverizing.
Definitely a corner of my pool deck. Some of the ground has washed out underneath it and it needs to be replaced.
I'd pulverize every squirrel I could find (sorry PETA), especially the ones trying to get into my attic! Adapted from Dr. Seuss
I'd pulverize them in a house.
I'd pulverize with a mouse.
I'd pulverize them here and there.
I'd pulverize them ANYWHERE!
Oh my gosh, so many things to pulverize, so little time!!!
The first thing I'll be pulverizing is a concrete stump with a small pipe sticking out of it that was once a close line. I need to beat it senseless, or at least enough of it to get it lower than grade so I can cover it with dirt. At that point, I'll build a deck. Hopefully I won't need to pulverize anything in that regard. If I do, it will be an accident. :)
It's funny that you should mention mothers-in-law. I will be moving in with my mother-in-law this summer. I'll be needing to do "work" around the house to help her out. I sure could use a little bit of help with that "work."
I'm going to be doing the DIY thing adding an addition to my home... I'm sure there will be plenty of opportunities to demolish something I just did wrong so I can re-build it.
Thats easy, my outhouse at my camp in VT!
Its not in great shape and I'm going to build a one soon.
But first, I need to pulverize the old one!!
