Constructors and demolition teams alike utilize the jackhammer, a tool that utilizes either pneumatic or electro-mechanical engineering to sporadically strike a chisel with a hammer like action. Credit for this invention is granted to William Mcreavy, who sold his patent to Charles Brady Stanley in 1871. Jackhammers are regularly employed in the effort to breakdown tough materials like concrete, asphalt, and even stone; commonly seen in large-scale development locations, demolition sites, and quarries.
A revolution in construction equipment began during the first decade of the 20th century when battery-powered electric jackhammers were launched. Preceded by their air-powered forbearers, these tools used approximately 100 psi of pressure to carry out their necessary duties. However, the early models were unwieldy and difficult to use.
Powered by compressed air which is usually around 90 psi, the modern jackhammer offers a much lighter and easier experience compared to the first electric models. With the pneumatic force that drives it, users of this tool now have a far less strenuous job.
Jackhammers are a must-have tool for any DIYer. With one end designed to break apart material, and the other for vigorously driving the chisel point towards the target, this mighty tool is available in a variety of sizes and shapes, with the most popular one being the portable, hand-held edition.
Light to medium demolition jobs demand a special apparatus; a tool that’s both easy to maneuver and effective in its results – the portable, handheld jackhammer. These devices come in all shapes and sizes, from the petite to the oversized, and their convenient design allows for them to be used with merely one hand.
Industrial jackhammers are an essential tool for any major demolition job. These bruisers dwarf their portable, handheld counterparts and typically require two pairs of hands to wield. Offering a range of sizes, from compact to colossal, industrial jackhammers are ready to tackle the toughest of tasks.
As Jackhammers make a loud clatter, it is best to protect your ears with appropriate safeguards. Failure to use ear protection when operating a jackhammer poses risks for hearing damage.
For regular use of a jackhammer, it is wise to begin by attaching the chisel point. Directly thrust the chisel into the subject material to break it apart initially; once it has been fragmented, the hammer portion can be used to ensure that the chisel is securely enclosed.
When employing a jackhammer, it’s essential to take your time and not hurry. If the work is done too hurriedly, your safety might be compromised and the tool could be destroyed.
Once your work with the jackhammer is complete, take the necessary steps to shut it down. Unplug the machine and drain off the air hose. Finally, tidy up your workspace and store the instrument away properly.
