Demolition hammers are usually seen on road works or construction sites, demolishing large concrete slabs or brick walls. But there are a range of electric demo hammers, from light to heavy models, and some of them can do surprisingly delicate work.
If you’re looking to demolish a concrete slab or take up floor tiles, you might want to use a heavier model, with a T-shaped handle for upright use. Weighing in at 30kg, it packs quite a punch. To remove floor tiles, you use a heavy hammer and mount it on a trolley. This makes it easier to move around and keeps the hammer at the correct angle to the floor.
There’s also a medium-sized hammer that comes with either a T-shape or curved grip for better manoeuvrability.
Finally, there’s the light demolition hammer, which is used to remove wall tiles, plaster or stucco. This model come with two handles so it can be used more easily in a horizontal position. At 7kg, it’s also much lighter than other hammers and easier to manoeuvre.
Let's take a look at how to use a demolition hammer to remove wall tiles.
