For projects involving concrete, asphalt, or rock demolition, the jackhammer is a go-to tool. Also known as a pneumatic hammer, air hammer, or demolition hammer, its effectiveness is driven by a compressor-powered pneumatic piston that establishes the hammering rhythm. An air compressor sends energy to the jackhammer while the operator occupies the trigger to fire and halt the momentum.
When looking to rent a jackhammer, the price will depend on its size and the length of rental period. Smaller tools might cost an average of $75 a day, with more substantial equipment upwards of $200 each day. Planning on using the machine for an extended time? You may be in luck—some rental companies provide discounts for lengthy rentals.
Ensuring your well-being should be top priority when working with a jackhammer. To protect your hearing, don earplugs or earmuffs, and slip on safety goggles to watch over your eyes. Wearing gloves safeguards your hands while steel-toed boots keep your feet out of harm’s way. A dust mask is also a must in protecting your lungs from any airborne particles.
If you find yourself in a secluded area, having a ventilation system to clear out dust and fumes from the surrounding atmosphere is essential.
After the jackhammer has seen its job through, cleansing the area of activity should be your next duty. Start off by taking a broom to sweep up any concrete debris that may have scattered during the task, and then mindfully discard it in a receptacle like a dumpster. Lastly, you must ensure fluidity in its performance and longevity by lubricating the tool.
A jackhammer can be an awesome companion when you’re looking to crack through some solid ground – and it won’t break your budget. But don’t forget to don the right protective gear and make sure to tidy up after you’re done. It’ll be worth it!
