Mallets, Hammers, & Adjusters

Mallets and sledge hammers are fundamental tools in the hardscaping and construction industry. A mallet, often made from softer materials like wood, rubber, or plastic, is used for striking without damaging the surface. Sledge hammers, on the other hand, are heavy-duty tools designed for breaking through hard materials.

There are a variety of mallets available, each suited for specific tasks:

  • Wood Mallets: Ideal for traditional carpentry and joinery.
  • Rubber Mallets: Perfect for paving and tiling as they provide a soft but firm hit.
  • Rawhide Mallets: Best for soft stones preventing chipping.
  • Plastic Mallets: Useful for DIY projects. 

Sledge hammers come in various sizes and weights, tailored for different tasks:

  • Lightweight Hammers: Suitable for small-scale demolition or driving stakes.
  • Heavy-Duty Hammers: Ideal for major demolition work in construction.

Understanding the specific needs of your project is key to selecting the right option of either a mallet or sledge hammer.

Using a dead blow mallet or a heavier mallet can help reduce bounce back.

Do I need a mallet or hammer?
