Drive stakes and rebar, shatter stone and concrete, and perform heavy demolition projects with the hard hitting power of this Estwing sledge hammer. Designed and built for heavy-duty use, this hammer features a forged alloy steel head that is case hardened to 50-55 HRC to withstand years of repeated impacts without deforming. This head is mounted to a 36-inch long, indestructible handle that consists of an ergonomic shock-absorbing vulcanised rubber handle overlay that hides 6 spring steel bars that run its full length providing exceptional overstrike protection in addition to additional impact force. Steel locking plates and a specialised bonding process secure the head to the handle and ensure that it never loosens. For added confidence and convenience when working and for storage the handle also has a steel reinforced lanyard hole at the base to allow for a wrist strap or hanging loop to be attached without fear that it will tear free over time from wear.
