The little brother to the Toolmanator 3 we found this far more practical on the trails. Without the shock pump in the way it was easier to get purchase on tricky bolts and makes the tool much smaller too. It is missing some other functionality from it’s bigger brother, the Philips head probably being the only thing you would miss though. The chain breaker works really well and perhaps our only complaint is that some of the bits are a little stubby, making it hard to get them into some bolts.


An excellent tool with everything you will need, what it lacks from the bigger version it makes up for in functionality. One we’ll definitely have in our bags.
