Construction workers looking to take down barriers quickly and efficiently have come to rely on the mighty jackhammer as their go-to tool. This formidable machinery effortlessly punches through concrete, asphalt, and other materials, making demolition a simple task to accomplish.
The advent of the industrial age brought with it a groundbreaking invention: the jackhammer. First appearing in the 18th century, this handy tool has been put to use in countless applications since – demolition projects, rock shattering work, and more.
Despite its straightforward construction, a jackhammer needs more than a casual glance to be handled properly. Herein, we inspect the origins and modern usage of this powerful implement.
A jackhammer is a handy device, using a piston to create powerful drives that serve to break through robust surfaces. The piston is connected with a vertical pole which, in turn, has a special tip crafted from steel or tungsten carbide. This point has the job of smashing through tough stuff.
Converting the air supply into the energy required to operate the tool, the piston of the jackhammer is kickstarted through a hose connected to a supply of compressed air. Even more advantageous, this access to air also actively works to prevent the tool from getting too hot by cooling it off.
Upon firing, the attached piston rod is driven downwards with such force that it detonates against the striking point, generating intense force capable of crushing through concrete, asphalt and other components.
Construction workers and anyone who needs to get a job done in a timely manner often turn to the jackhammer. This mighty tool can be used for numerous purposes, ranging from demolition of structures to smashing rocks into smaller fragments.
Although its power gives many pause, the jackhammer is actually quite safe to use; however, caution should be exercised regarding the potential for projectiles to fly, as well as hearing safety.
To keep yourself secure while using a jackhammer, ear protection and safety glasses should be worn for protection. Recruiting an extra pair of hands – a spotter – could be beneficial too; they can manage the device and make sure nothing gets in the way while you’re working.
For countless decades, the jackhammer has proven to be a reliable assistant for builders and professionals who require a fast and productive means of working. Its robustness and diversity make it an irreplaceable tool of the trade.
