Pick up one of these long-handled heavy hitters for tough jobs like driving stakes or posts or breaking up concrete, stone, or brick. Available in a range of weights and handle lengths, sledgehammers should be gripped with both hands. Grip the hammer close to the head for better control and lighter blows, or grip the end of the handle and swing the sledgehammer like an axe for more powerful blows. Sledgehammers have a broad face that spreads out the force of the blow to help prevent unintentional damage to the workpiece.
Keep a few of these sledgehammers handy for a wide range of hard-hitting tasks.
The heads of these dead blow sledgehammers have been filled with metal shot or sand to add weight and help prevent rebound when striking a surface. This makes the hammer easier to control, reduces risk of damaging the workpiece, and focuses the force where it's needed.

Replaceable Face Dead Blow
Remove the faces on these replaceable-face dead blow sledgehammers to exchange them with new faces when the current faces become worn or damaged or to replace them with different faces made of a softer or harder material to adapt the tool for a range of tasks. (Replacement faces sold separately.) The heads have been filled with metal shot or sand to add weight and help prevent rebound when striking a surface, which makes the hammer easier to control, reduces risk of damaging the workpiece, and focuses the force where it's needed.
These sledgehammers are made from nonferrous materials to help minimize the risk of the tool generating a spark while in use. Nonsparking sledgehammers are useful in environments that contain flammable solvents, liquids, vapors, dusts, or residues.
