This wiki has been updated 9 times since it was first published in October of 2018. Dismantling pallets is a laborious and time consuming job when you try and do it with a hammer and a crowbar. Luckily, someone invented these busters, which make the task a whole lot easier and quicker. These tools come in a variety of designs and shapes, but they all provide you with a lot of leverage. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best pallet buster on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 28, 2018:

When identifying the best pallet busters, two features took center stage — durability and effectiveness. We also wanted to make sure the majority of our chosen models not only pulled planks quickly, but left them in one piece so the boards could be used for reclaimed furniture or other projects afterwards.

He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs.

His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
