A: It is rated at 15 oz. but it swings like a 20 oz. Very balanced and easily my favorite hammer ever.
A: It says it has a 15 oz nailing head. It is built tough. I recommend this tool.
A: It's 1.8 lbs. So it's heavier than most of the 16oz hammers. I think the AntiVibe is one of the lighter ones at 1.3 and the Dewalt is 1.5lbs. But most of the weight is in the handle so you're holding most of the weight. It's not top heavy and has a great balance.
A: This is a 15 ounce hammer and is 13 3/4 inches long. The most popular Estwing 16 ounce hammer is 13 inches. Balance of the longer, lighter hammer feels better.
A: The weight of the whole hammer is 1.81 pounds.
A: This hammer will handle that with ease.
A: It would work, but I'd go heavier if you can handle a slightly heavier hammer (e.g. no carpal tunnel, etc.). If you only have one hammer, I feel a 20 oz hammer is an ideal all around weight for doing general carpentry work. If lots of framing, go heavier if you can, if more finish type work a 15 oz is fine.
A: Well 20D's are as you know pretty beefy. The 19oz ultra has a waffled face for starters. I would probably be inclined to go with the 19oz version. I think the 15oz is wonderful for demo work and the long and think claw is really helpful. The side nail puller is a bit unnecessary, but it is nice to have.
A: Yes it will
A: I think the AB-15SR is a good choice. Might be easier to manage the lighter weight versus a 19 oz.
