Used to shatter concrete and asphalt into pieces, a jackhammer is a mechanized smashing tool, also known as a pneumatic hammer, breaking hammer, or puncher. Traditional versions were driven by compressed air while today’s models usually rely on electricity or hydraulics for operation. No matter the power source, a jackhammer is designed to slice its way through the toughest materials with sturdy and repetitive blows.

Developed in the late 1800s, the earliest jackhammers were utilized for the dismantling of rocks into usable pieces for constructions. Steam supplied the power to these machines, however later innovations saw an upgraded reliance on compressed air. Eventually, electricity became the go-to source for this equipment by the start of the twentieth century.

For those looking for the most reliable solution to their concrete-breaking needs, one of the most popular choices is the piston type jackhammer. This contraption operates via a piston, either driven by an electric motor or powered by a gasoline engine, providing users with maximum strength and impressive efficiency. It has become the go-to choice for many who demand only the best results any hammering job.

For jobs requiring a slightly lighter touch, the hammer type jackhammer is the solution. Offering greater mobility for tight corners, this gentler option still offers up substantial punch, striking the surface intended for destruction with a steady hammer motion. Comparatively, this type of jackhammer is more manageable than the piston one, but packs a less forceful impact.

Referred to as the least intimidating, the chisel type jackhammer is the most user-friendly of the three varieties. This model employs a chisel-shaped implement to dislodge any material that stands in its way. However, its overall power may be lacking compared to the other types.

Protection of your eyes and ears should always be a priority, regardless of the type of jackhammer in use. Shield yourself from flying rubble with the use of safety glasses and earplugs.
