Chipping Hammers usually weigh between 10 and 20 pounds. The main variation within these are the tradeoff between impact energy and blows per minute. A 2” cylinder will be the lightest and deliver less impact energy but will have a very high BPM. Conversely – a 4” cylinder will weigh more, have more impact energy, and a lower BPM. These tools will have a pistol grip or D handle and are more suitable for horizontal work. A pistol grip will have an outside push trigger and a D handle will have an inside pull trigger.
