Milwaukee Demolition Gloves Review

Milwaukee Demolition Gloves Review

I review tools and products as part of my AsktheBuilder.com website.

You might think there's not much to say when reviewing simple work or demolition gloves, right?

If you've worn work gloves for over forty years like I have, then you might know exactly what to look for in a glove.

I've worn many many pairs of work gloves in my four decades of hands-on, no pun intended, construction work. I've built new homes, room additions, done lots of demolition work and plenty of remodeling on existing homes.

I do know what I like and don't like about work gloves, so let's start there. But first, a little business about reviews.

Know Your Reviewer

I hope you do realize that many of the current tool reviewers out there, and I'm talking late 2016, are individuals who have never been on a real job site, never have worked in construction as a full-time job, and most definitely do not have decades of real field experience.

Always be sure to visit the About Us page on a tool review website and look at the qualifications of the person writing the review before you put much faith in their opinion of the tool.

Some reviewers write a review without even using the tool. They open it up and take some photos or shoot a video in their workshop. I take the tool and USE IT to see how it performs. But I digress!

My Test

I tested these gloves over a period of two weeks. I had to do some cleanup around the back of my house moving framing lumber around that was leftover from building a new deck. This is the sort of material you might handle doing demolition.

I also wore the gloves taping a video showing how easy it was to use a BernzOmatic MAP-gas torch. This was an interesting test because you need dexterity to operate the torch. The gloves allowed me to safely use the torch, operate the controls and not put myself in danger of getting burned.

Finally, I had a massive project of cleaning up around my wood pile. I had many old pallets that had to be moved, some cut up for kindling wood, and just general handling of split wood, pallets with RUSTY nails! and cumbersome logs.

The gloves did well. Very well.

My only complaint, and this is with just about all gloves like this, is that they're not waterproof. I long for a waterproof work or demolition glove that breathes. I'm going to hunt for a pair and test those next!

Use the hoop and loop straps to secure the gloves to your hands. I feel the glove size runs SMALL, so order the next size up you feel you need. CLICK THE PHOTO to BUY the gloves. (C)Copyright 2016 Tim Carter
