About this deal

In a professional environment you shouldn't be using a sledge hammer unless you're breaking rocks of course. Strouty I think 20 is too much, in fact 12 is probably as heavy as I would go nobody swings a really heavy sledge anymore.

I guess it performs like brass, yet it could still create a spark, so it is not considered safe for certain environments.No matter how much care you take, incorrectly hitting the hammer on the handle instead of the head cannot be avoided.

I am looking to replace a couple of China no name sledge hammers that I sent off to the auction the other day. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. I would definitely not recommend it for anyone who is not either above average strength or using an assist.If you do not require any personalised engraving please use the no text box for each item at the checkout. The BASH does seem to be a nice sledge for sure, I think they are made in South Africa, but I have not been able to confirm this yet. Back east somewhere Ive also got a 40 lb'er for driving fence posts, but thats not your typical sledge in that it has oversized faces. An 8 and 16 sounds like a good compliment, or if you and/or the material you are working with are large, a ten and a twenty. I have looked at lots of sledges, I am pretty set in my decision on the Wilton line, they seem to be built the way I would build a hammer.

Rule of thumb - if you've ever played the classic carnival game where you whack the pad to ring the bell, the general weight of those mallets is the typical maximum you can tolerate swinging. Standard Industrial grade Sledge Hammers are suited to all general purpose heavy striking applications. I was used to swinging 8-12 lb hammers and figured the 20 wouldn't be that much different and I could not have been more wrong.You want something massive enough that its weight dropping does most of the work, light enough that you can lift it as many times as necessary without exhausting yourself. I used every thing from the one handed sledge hammer, '4 pounder', to the heavier 20 lb sledge hammer. This 20 lb sledge hammer has a long handle and a large flat head to deliver powerful blows to concrete, wood and steel. The size of the head allows additional force to be applied and distributed over a wide area with a variety of head weights available to suit the task at hand.
