Demolition Done Properly

Before a renovation or construction project can commence, there's often the grueling but important work of demolition to be done. Unless the project at hand calls for a 100% tear down that can be completed with bulldozers and excavators, most demolition work comes down to the efforts of individual workmen. Using the right tools for the job can not only make the work of demolition go faster but can help ensure that it's an effective and safe process, too. Improper demolition can not only damage the wrong parts of a building or home, driving up costs but can also present serious safety hazards, compromising structural integrity and causing serious injury to the workers.

Sledgehammers and saws are effective tools for many types demolition of, and large jackhammers can be effective for many aspects of a demo project as well. But the single most effective tool in the arsenal of a construction team charged with breaking apart existing construction is the demolition hammer. Few tools combine both accuracy and brute strength so ably as this versatile tool.

Before we talk about choosing the right demolition hammer for your needs, let's discuss why this tool is generally well-suited to myriad applications.

Demolition hammers concentrate the immense force to a precise area, usually a pointed tip or flat chisel-shaped plane. Properly guided against an appropriate surface, a demo hammer's bit can make short work of brick, concrete, asphalt, stone, and many other durable materials and surfaces. More precise than a sledgehammer (and easier to use, as well), a demolition hammer can be used as part of a total tear down of a structure or to create only a small hole in a wall or ground covering a surface, perfect for servicing pipes or wiring without an unnecessarily large amount of destruction. So it might seem ironic to say, but using a demolition hammer can actually prevent unnecessary demolition.

You will see demolition hammers at work in the hands of home builders, road crews, plumbers, and many other professional workers. They are also a handy tool for the DIY enthusiast who wants to maximize the efficient use of his or her time; while certainly more expensive than a simple sledgehammer, a demolition hammer makes short work of big jobs.

Choosing The Right Demolition Hammer


Go to top.

The standard demolition hammer you'll find in most homes or in the hands of a worker renovating a residence or smaller commercial facility is also known as a rotary hammer as its chisel is driven forward and backward by in internally rotating mechanism. The plug-in demolition hammer's proper name is electro-pneumatic hammer, though this term is less frequently used.

Choosing the right demolition hammer to suit your needs comes down to the scale of the work to be done. As logic would suggest, the larger the demolition hammer, the more destructive force it can deliver. These tools range in weight from only a dozen pounds to many dozens of pounds, but bigger is not always better. If you are breaking down walls, for example, a large, heavy rotary hammer may be too unwieldy for accurate horizontal use, while a smaller hammer may allow for precision that more than compensates for its lower per-thrust force. Smaller demo hammers also reduce operator fatigue (as do features like vibration controls) that allow for longer use.

On the other hand, if you're primarily breaking up concrete floors, brick walkways or patios, or asphalt driveways, then, by all means, opt for a larger, heavier demolition hammer. In these cases, their weight only increases their efficacy thanks to gravity.

Also, consider the bits (frequently called chisels) that will best suit the type of work you most often undertake; while most demolition hammers can handle most standard bits, if you use unusually large, narrow, or otherwise specialized bits, not all demo hammers may be suitable for your needs.

Demolition Hammer Use And Maintenance


Go to top.

As with any power tool, safety and caution are of extreme importance when using a demolition hammer. An operator should wear thick gloves, protective goggles, and reliable ear protection; demolition hammers can cause severe hearing damage with prolonged exposure. Also aways be sure the area in which the tool will be used can handle the vibrations associated with its use, as a demolition hammer can inadvertently damage surfaces without even touching them. Be particularly cautious using a demolition hammer around tile, stone, and other rigid materials.

Also, consider wearing sturdy boots in case you drop the hammer and/or for protection from falling materials.

Demolition hammers can accommodate multiple different types of bit, and each bit serves a different purpose. For example, the flat spade bit is great for breaking through the seams between bricks or pavers. A point tip can break through concrete walls or help break apart joints or light welds. A stake driver is a wider bit that can be used to drive posts or rebar into position.

Choosing the right size of hammer and the right chisel for the job at hand can help you avoid collateral damage and will save you time and effort as you complete any and all needed demolition.

#9.Neiko 02845A Electric Demolition Jack Hammer with Point and Flat Chisel Bits | Includes 4 Extra Carbon Brushes and Safety Protection Kit


Well, I was skeptical about buying this hammer but at the current price of 129, I figured I couldn't go wrong. I used to do masonry and what we used back in the day was the Bosch electric hammer and the Bosch smaller demolition hammer. As for the size, this Jackhammer is about right in the middle. It is maneuverable enough to position it to break up chunks of concrete in harder places but not so small that it takes forever to pound away. As for the power, I would have to say it is comparable to the BOSCH jackhammer in every way except that since it is smaller it is harder to get the leverage to pull a good size chunk of concrete out of the dirt but nothing that a breaker bar or a bit of patience can't fix.

#7.XtremepowerUS 2200Watt Heavy Duty Electric Demolition Jack hammer Concrete Breaker W/Case, Gloves


I'm not typically one to write a review, although I do base my opinions of products on other people's reviews. For the price, this tool is totally worth it. I had to tear out a 6" thick heavy rebar suspended concrete porch that was 10'x13' not including the concrete staircase. This tool performed well beyond what I expected for a tool in this price range. It was very sturdy and seemed well made. I even was using it one of the days a snow flurry hit and the hammer was soaking wet and still performed phenomenally. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to purchase a jackhammer for one or more projects.

#5.Makita HM0870C 11-Pound Demolition Hammer SDS-Max


It was the perfect tool for my job. It was amazing! The variable speed was great; I only needed speed 3 for my job. I removed all the tile and the cement based skim coat (1/2" thick in some places) for a 14x10 master bath and demolished a 3x4 tile shower stall down to the studs. Easy. I enjoy using it and wish I had more to do. I bought Makita because of another tool I can't be without - my Makita Cordless Impact Driver TD020D. So I bought Makita again. Now I will probably always buy Makita. I also have a Makita router that I have had and used since, I think the 80's, so I feel very good about it lasting.
