Northern California
Exceptional Customer Service, Product Could be Better
April 18, 2020
I purchased this item after using this type of tool for many years as a land management and homesteading consultant all over the world. I've always considered it among the most useful and versatile tools for land owners and farm workers, so I was very excited to order one for a project in the hills and woods of Northern California.

I shopped around looking for the best version of this tool and thought I'd found it in this original premium ZAC model. Unfortunately when I received my order the metal head of this tool came with a factory defect that gave it a wobble usually only seen after a few years of heavy use. When I contacted WRS, their customer service rep promptly responded and communicated with the manufacturer to rectify the situation. After being instructed to fix the tool myself by the factory, I was supposed to receive a replacement direct from the mfg. A couple months later and still no replacement.

In spite of their reassuring effort, in the end WRS was forced to offer me credit, and I was left with a less than premium tool. To make a long story short, I was thoroughly impressed by the customer service at WRS, and would both highly recommend this website to others and would gladly do business with them again. I would however avoid purchasing another ZAC Tools product, instead finding an alternative for this otherwise amazing tool.
ProsGreat tool. Friendly and professional customer service.
ConsFactory defect. Unimpressive manufacturer support.
