The proper identification of shank types and sizes is of extreme importance. The shank being the portion of the tool above the round collar which fits into the pavement breaker. In the paving breaker line, sizes are fairly well standardized in hammers of comparable size and weight. Options prevail which allow for more than one shank in a particular style hammer. Standard shank sizes, all hexagonal, are 7/8″ x 3-1/4″, 1″ x 4-1/4″, 1-1/8″ x 6″, and 1-1/4″ x 6″.

Most items are available in standard hexagon carbon steel grade. However, certain items such as narrow chisels, moil points, 3″ chisels, and SuperKut chisels are available in the super service grade made from round steel for extra strength and longer service.

Most of the tools referred to were designed for a specific purpose, although moil points and narrow chisels are the most popular all-purpose tool used for general demolition work.

The 3″ CHISEL is used for concrete demolition work, asphalt cutting and removal of deteriorating concrete on bridge decks.

The 5″ ASPHALT CUTTER is primarily for cutting asphalt pavement and should not be used as a concrete demolition tool.

The ASPHALT CONCRETE WEDGE, a rugged tool for severe service is used for cutting asphalt pavement with concrete or cobblestones beneath the surface.

The BUSHING TOOL with its toothed face is for leveling concrete walls or floors; also for roughing a concrete surface to produce a desired finish.

CARBIDE TIPPED DRILLS are used in pneumatic rotary percussion drills and will drill hundreds of holes in granite with a greater quantity in softer stone and concrete.

The CLAY SPADE, as the name implies, is for general excavation where hard clay or “hard pan” is encountered. The 1-1/8″ and 1-1/4″ shanks are used with 60 lb. and 90 lb. breakers for trench digging and trimming. The standard blade width is 5-1/2″ with a 4-1/2″ width option.

The DIGGING CHISEL is used for cutting through asphalt pavement for deeper penetration or where digging in hard ground is encountered. It can be used for cutting sod for underground cable installation.

The FROST WEDGE is primarily for cutting through frozen ground. The proper way to use this tool is to start an opening and then peel away the ground with its long tapered blade.

The FORM PIN / RAILROAD SPIKE DRIVER is made with a shallow socket to drive anchoring pins and spikes.

The GROUND ROD DRIVER is made with a deep socket, in various sizes, for driving grounding rods as used by electrical contractors and public utilities.

PIPE DRIVERS are made to drive a particular pipe size under driveways or walkways. Used by gas companies and utility contractors.

The ROCK BREAKER is used in a 2″ drilled hole for breaking boulders or concrete. Its use is similar to the splitting wedge but the direction of the split cannot be controlled.

The SHEATHING DRIVER SHOE is used for driving 2″ or 3″ wood trench sheathing and made for use with the tapered shank.

The SPLITTING WEDGE with SHIMS is used in a drilled hole for controlling splitting of rock or concrete. The two shims are placed in a 2″ drilled hole at least 12″ deep, with the holes in line with the direction of the desired split. The wedge is then driven into this opening with a paving breaker and the break is quickly accomplished.

The SUPERKUT CHISEL is designed especially for breaking concrete. It will break concrete faster with less effort and with less frequent need for resharpening. It is faster because its wedge shape and rounded cutting edge provides easier penetration, and breaks larger sections of concrete.

TAMPING PADS are round or square shaped and used with a DETACHABLE SHANK. The round pads are primarily for backfill tamping while the square pads are used for surface tamping on asphalt pavement or dirt.
