Best Demolition Hammer

by Tested_to_Destruction

A demolition hammer is an awesome power tool, used for home improvements and construction purposes. The five dest demolition hammers - reviewed and compared.

When it comes to destruction in the construction industry nothing gets the job done quite as easily as a good quality demolition hammer. They're an awesome power tool, used for ripping though concrete, brick, walls and a myriad of other materials and obstacles.

Unlike they're little brothers - such as a claw or ball peen hammer - they take the labor out of labor intensive work and can prove to be extremely versatile and user friendly. Big favorites are manufactured by the likes of Makita, Bosch and Hitachi and the type you purchase is the one that best suits your needs.

The five best are featured below. They cover a range of price tags, though all are by far the most popular and best selling power tools - as well as the most highly rated by those that already own them.

Neiko Industrial-Grade Electric Demolition Jack Hammer, with 2 Bits Point and Flat & Metal Case

This is the best selling demolition hammer - and it's currently on offer at an awesome discount. It's powered by a 1240 watt motor, that throws out an impressive 1400 rpms - plenty of thrust to rip through walls. It comes with a pair of reinforced steel jack chisel heads - chrome vanadium which is tough enough to tackle just about anything.

House in a practical sturdy case, it's definitely an industry standard power tool - it dug through a meter or two of concrete happily enough and I've no doubts as to it's ability against a solid brick wall or similar. Is it good value for money? Yes - perhaps not the toughest of jack hammers overall but certainly up to standard and will rip through concrete without question. Great price, good quality.

Bosch 11316EVS SDS-Max Demolition Hammer

This is a five star rated demolition hammer from Bosch - and it deserves its rave reviews. What are you getting for the best part of 700 bucks? You're getting an awesome monster power tool that's deceivingly lightweight and yet incredibly powerful, rugged and up to industry standard. When in motion it's like holding on to a semi-tame bronco - you have it under control and yet you can still feel and see the power it's got beneath the hood.

It's driven by a motor than can deliver up to 1,890 per minute - and offers both variable speeds and a wide array of positions that allow you to get the job done - wherever you need to do it. The bit changes are done tool free, an auto.lock kicks in and holds the bit in place and once you're powered up and ready to go, the hammer does the work for you. Feature packed, excellent design and build quality - worth every single cent of the purchase price.

This is another five star rated demolition hammer, this time from Makita. It's availble in three weights - this one at 35lb as well as a 13lb and 20lb model. It goes without saying that you purchase the one best suited to your needs. A 13 amp motor delivers 1,450 bpms and the lock-on button is a very handy feature - no need to keep the start button depressed once you're up and running. You can also switch the side handle through 360º, which aids positioning and grip.

The overall manufacture is rugged - like the previous Bosch model it's compact yet amazingly powerful. Concrete, brick, rubble and a myriad of other hard materials are reduced into dust when this power tool is set loose. It's housed in a tough enough steel case and will raise productivity for a variety of different industry tradesmen - construction workers, plumbers and more. Awesome hammer - with a great discount.

Hitachi H65SD2 40-Pound Demolition Hammer

This is an Hitachi demolition hammer, again with a perfect rating.till on the higher end of the price scale but you're getting a full weight bang for your buck. These are toys for big boys and all are up to the tough industry standards - as set out by US legislation. It's a super efficient, highly effective hammer, delivering an awesome 31 ft/lbs of impact power.

The handle has a full 360º rotation and it's fully cushioned to aid comfort and grip. The design is pretty good with this one - it's ergonomic and whilst that doesn't mean much to some folks, it does do a lot for the feel and balance of a power tool. Weight plus a powerful motor can cause both discomfort and a well designed machine will result in neither. Smashed it's way through a few meters worth of tough earth, rubble and rock on testing - a superior hammer for under 600 bucks.

Used for digging out post holes - through some pretty nasty terrain, it stood up to the Makita name with ease. It is surprisingly compact and lightweight when you've got it in front of you but it certainly smashed it's way through everything it met in the ground.

The motor is 10 amps, four positions with the cushioned vibration reduction handle and all in all -  a well built hammer that will happily take out concrete, tiles, brick walls - in fact most medium sized jobs in a day in the life of a tradesman. Spot on with the price tag - you're getting high-end quality and features a-plenty with this one - great investment.
