Spotlight on Chipping Hammers

Chipping hammers put the power of a jackhammer into a small, lightweight, handheld tool. This air tool is useful for chipping away at concrete on vertical surfaces. It can even be used on overhead surfaces. Chipping hammers are ideal for projects that require precision and finesse. To use it, you’ll grasp the handle at the back and place your other hand on the shaft. This gives you better control over the angle and direction.

You can use this air tool to remove masonry to accommodate space for a window or doorway, and you can use it to smooth the edges of a hole for your basement sump pump. Always make sure you have the proper personal protection equipment (PPE) for the task at hand. Concrete demo jobs result in plenty of dust and larger airborne projectiles.

You can rent a high-quality chipping hammer by the day, week, or month at A-1 Equipment Rental Center. Call (650) 369-2992 for information about this and other equipment rentals available near San Mateo, CA.
