A jackhammer is a piece of equipment that is both powerful and resilient: it is often employed by construction and demolition teams to successfully break apart materials such as concrete, asphalt, and rock. Its hydraulic or pneumatic components allow it to consistently perform under strenuous circumstances.
Way back in the early 1800s, inventors made their mark on history with the invention of the first jackhammers, driven by steam. Then, forty years later, Charles Brady King revolutionized the industry by patenting the very first pneumatic jackhammer. Finally, a hundred years ago in 1901, Charles P. Gould proved he was ahead of his time with the invention of the first hydraulic jackhammer.
Nowadays, jackhammers come in two power varieties: compressed air and hydraulics. Used in an array of building and destroying tasks, these tools are indispensable for their owners.
The handle of a jackhammer is held by the user, enabling them to maneuver the tool in the desired direction. The bit is connected to the piston, which is propelled by the power source. Inside the cylinder, an air or fluid under pressure is contained. Through these components, an effective instrument for demolition and construction work is created.
A steel bit is typically found at the tail end of a jackhammer, sharpened to a point or chisel-like tip. Its purpose is to make contact with the material being broken into pieces.
A jackhammer requires either an air compressor-powered pneumatic version, or a hydraulic power unit to fuel it. The intensity for the tool can be generated via air compressed energy or the strength of a hydraulic unit.
Jackhammers are tools of tremendous strength, and their misuse can have dire consequences. To safeguard yourself, it is essential to don safety goggles or a face shield while working with such a tool. In addition, it is wise to make use of ear plugs or ear muffs in order to secure your auditory system from the noise.
Utilizing a jackhammer requires secure handling of the apparatus and clear positioning of your digits away from the activator. Remain persistent and consistent in maintaining constant contact between the bit and the target material to be destructed. You should not try to overstretch your body or use heave motions while operating the mechanism.
While a pneumatic jackhammer can provide great power, it is essential to ensure that you are using an air compressor of the appropriate size. If the compressor is insufficiently large, the air pressure will drop and can place strain on the functioning of the tool, potentially stalling it.
When operating any hydraulic jackhammer, ensure that all necessary connections are appropriately sized. In particular, the hydraulic hose must correctly match the size of the relevant hydraulic power unit. A mismatch in size may lead to overheating of the hydraulic fluid and consequent stalling of the tool.
Once you are done with your jackhammer for the day, ensure that you disconnect both the air and hydraulic hoses. Additionally, remember to fully drain the air compressor or hydraulic power unit of all remaining liquid.
