handheld jackhammer

A handheld jackhammer is an effective device employed by construction and demolition teams to shatter concrete, asphalt, or any other material. Its percussive blows crush and pulverize whatever the operator takes aim at.

As the 19th century came to a close, workers were no longer confined to relying on materials such as picks and sledgehammers, as the invention of the first handheld jackhammer became a reality. Fueled by compressed air, these bulky contraptions opened a world of possibilities for construction crews, though they were best utilized on larger projects due to their substantial weight and largeness.

At the start of the 1900s, electric-powered jackhammers came onto the scene. These tools offered an advantageous alternative to their air-powered contemporaries, weighing lighter and able to be operated with greater dexterity. In short order, they usurped their once-predominant place in any construction or demolition project.

Handheld jackhammers can be found in an array of styles on the market today, ranging from sleek and lightweight models to beefier options with a higher power rating and extra features.

When selecting a handheld jackhammer, it is essential to specify the purpose for its application. Depending on the task at hand, some of these jackhammers will be supremely suited to penetrative concrete work, while others could prove more effective when utilised in asphalt or other surfaces.

When selecting a tool, the heaviness of the device must be taken into account. Thicker jackhammers have the power to provide more energy but can challenge anyone’s skill when it comes to keeping them in check and may also tire out the operator.

Those of a more featherweight build are apt for easy handling, yet they might not possess the robustness required to carry out certain duties.

When selecting a handheld jackhammer, it is beneficial to evaluate the distinct features that each product offers. Some come with a luxurious chisel, while other brands have integrated dust collection systems – depending on your particular preference.

From air-powered to battery-operated to electric, there is a wide selection of power options available for you to choose from.

Whatever your projects require, you won’t be disappointed when it comes to your choice of handheld jackhammers. With the wide selection readily available, you’re sure to find the perfect jackhammer to fit all your desired specifications.
