At DEWALT, we know that the two main complaints of hammer users are the vibration, or "sting" they feel on a daily basis as well as the durability or lifespan of the tool. After years of testing, we came up with ground-breaking technology to solve these problems. We found that it was the combination of the material of the handle as well as the hammer shape that allowed us to substantially reduce the vibration a professional feels. This updated material is chemical-resistant which helps to keep the grip intact during daily use.
We rigorously tested this category for years and partnered with US Ergonomics who has been conducting advanced ergonomic testing of hand tools for over 30 years. Our focus is always on creating high performance tools for the professional and this range was no exception.
