All Slidehammer® ends have a patented design feature that assist the operator in maintaining the position of the tool, for delivering pinpoint strike accuracy.
Unlike a conventional jackhammer, the hand operated jackhammer can be more easily controlled when precision work is required.
All the Slidehammer® shafts are made from Australian manufactured tool steel and (accept for the tamper) hand forged by a blacksmith then hardened.
The tool is portable and versatile, making it an ideal tool for contractors, fence builders, farmers, landscapers, road repair crews, sign post installers, plumbers and drainers.
The hand operated jack hammer consists of two parts; a tubular steel handle and a solid steel tool bit.
The handle slides over the tool bit, so as to deliver an impact blow to the top end of the tool.
The bit is interchangeable and comes in a choice of 4 end points.
The 4 interchangeable tool bits are around 1000mm (39”) in length and weigh between 5.5kg and 7kg (12lb and 15lb).
The handle is 860mm (34”) long and weighs 6kg (13lb).
The top of the handle is ergonomically shaped so as to provide a handgrip.
The hand operated jack hammer measures 1800mm (72”) fully extended (which is the same as a conventional crowbar). The handle has a “stroke” of 620mm (24”).
Given the higher impact forces delivered by the hand operated jack hammer it is important that the tool ends are resistant to fracture and chipping.
The tool ends are made from selected high grade steel with ends subject to hardening to minimize this.
The tool steel complies with Australian Standard AS1443-1994 Carbon steels and carbon-manganese steels – Cold-finished bars or AS1444-1996 Wrought alloy steels – Standard, hardenability (H) series and hardened and tempered to designated mechanical properties.
Forging and hardening is carried out in accordance with the steel manufacturer’s specifications.
There are five interchangable ends available:
The Diamond Point is suitable for breaking up hard ground, digging holes and breaking up concrete.
The Narrow Chisel is ideal for breaking up concrete, bricks and stone as well as digging holes and splitting timber.
The Wide Chisel is commonly used for cutting bitumen or tree roots, and is particularly effective for pothole repairs.
The Tamper is commonly used for compacting soil around posts of for packing bitumen. Also available in a tyre bead breaker point.
Tyre Bead Breaker
The Tyre Bead Breaker is ideal for breaking the bead on all types of tyres from car to truck and tractor tyres.
