The Best Hammer Guns

A hammer gun is a unique, high powered tool that preforms numerous tasks and hammers at high speeds. A hammer gun is a great tool for driving nails through hard surfaces or hammering numerous nails in a small period of time. There are two main types of hammer guns: electrical and air. Each type of hammer gun has its own strengths and weakness, so select yours with care.

SK Hand Tool 91714 Air Hammer

This pneumatic air tool gives you more power than an electric hammer gun. The air hammer gun lasts longer than its electrical equivalent, because it has less moving parts. Instead of using an extension cord to power the tool, this air hammer gun is powered by an air compressor. Simply adjust the psi (pounds per square inch) of the air compressor to the recommended setting on the air hammer gun, and you are ready to work. The hammerhead of the air hammer gun moves rapidly, making it a versatile tool that you can use for projects such as hammering a nail into a hard surface, shaping an object or punching a hole. The SK Hand Tool 91714 Air Hammer comes with a variety of interchangeable tips, making it one of the most useful tools in your tool shed.

Top Gun Impact Hammer

This small but powerful air hammer gun performs at high speeds, delivering as much as 1,400 blows per minute. The hammer gun's 4-inch piston gives the gun enough power to hammer nails through dense material and even cut through sheet metal and chip concrete. The gun attaches to an air compressor, and can be used at pressures between 90 and 100 psi.

Electric Hammer Gun

The electric hammer gun doesn't preform with the same speed, power or intensity as an air hammer gun. While the reduced speed and power of the electric hammer gun may seem like a deal breaker, its lower intensity actually makes the electric hammer gun a better choice for the unprofessional workman. While the air hammer gun can be very dangerous in non-professional hands, the electric hammer gun is easier to control.

Bosch Rotary Power Hammer

The Bosch Rotary Power Hammer is a versatile hammer that can be adjusted to perform many different tasks. With two settings, hammer mode and rotary mode, you can use this hammer for multiple parts of various projects. The hammer's two grips improve stability and aim when using the hammer.
