Sledges are a type of hammer used for various applications, such as driving stakes or wedges, demolishing masonry, and more. The two main types of Sledges are the hammer sledge and the sledge hammer.
Types of Sledges
Hammer sledges are heavier than sledge hammers, but have a shorter handle which makes them easier to use in tight spaces. They also have a slightly larger head which can be beneficial when working with large pieces of material. Sledge hammers on the other hand, have longer handles and smaller heads making them better suited for precision work.
How Sledges are Made
Sledges are typically made from steel or iron and feature either a flat striking surface or a wedge-shaped striking surface. The handles may be made from wood or fiberglass depending on the application they will be used for.
Industries that use Sledges
Sledges can be found in many industries including construction, demolition, mining, landscaping, and more. Professionals in these industries rely on their sledges to drive stakes into the ground or break apart materials quickly and safely.
