      A:  Hi Jim, To the best of my knowledge Husky tools are last known to be manufactured in Taiwan aaaaaand China. Regardless of where it's made, it's a very well made and reliable tool amongst my equipment. Rugged and sturdy and packs a serious punch when put to use. Great balance and weight distribution as well.

          Q:Will this hammer be suitable to break up a small concrete slab that is already cracked?

          Answer This Question

          A:  Absolutely! Depending on thickness of concrete have a chisel handy to help break apart stubborn pieces.

          by|Apr 22, 2020

          A:  I think it depends on how thick the concrete slab is. If it is 4" or less this would probably work fine (with safety glasses!). If it is thicker, you may want to consider a larger hammer.

          by|Oct 22, 2022

            A:  yes that was the primary reason we bought it

            by|Mar 31, 2020

            A:  No

            by|Jun 10, 2020

            A:  Yes but the handle isn’t real long so if you could use a step stool to sit on so you’ll be closer to the ground. Don’t forget to wear protective eye ware. But yes it would be good for a small job

            by|Jun 11, 2019

              A:  With a chisel yes. I large 8lbs sledge would be faster though

              by|Nov 14, 2019

              A:  Not sure what size area your talking....Yes for a very small area. Wouldn’t recommend for any job larger. I personally use it to bang the four corner locks on an intermodal container (truck driver).

              by|Jun 12, 2019

                A:  No problem

                by|Jun 12, 2019

                A:  using a large cold chisel

                by|Jun 12, 2019

                A:  yes

                  Q:will it drive a fence post anchor in the ground

                  Answer This Question

                  A:  Ehhhhhhh, depending on ground you are trying to hit through and size of post. I would recommend for smaller post or soft ground but bigger you might have to give it quite a few whacks.

                  by|Aug 28, 2018

                    A:  Not certain. I've only owned my mallet several weeks and have only used it once thus far. Once this cold spell snaps and we see a real spring around here I can start using it on yard construction projects.

                    by|May 21, 2020

                    A:  I think so if it is a regular metal post

                    by|Mar 31, 2020

                    A:  Yes, we live in AZ. The dirt here is like clay. Pre-soak the dirt and with enough muscles, it will go in. Mind you, my husband is 265 lbs, a lot of force behind it too.

                    by|Aug 25, 2018

                      A:  Hate to give you inaccurate info. Not sure about a fence post anchor. It is, very sturdy and well constructed. I’m a trucker and use it to bang the 4 corner steel lock hooks on intermodal steel containers to lock down on chassis (the large containers you see stacked on the locomotives). Doesn’t chip, holds up well. Sorry if this info doesn’t help.

                      by|Aug 25, 2018

                        A:  Into dirt, yes

                        by|Nov 14, 2019

                        A:  This will drive a fence post anchor into earth, not rock. It is only a 4 pound hammer with a 14 inch handle. This is not a full size sledge hammer.

                        by|Jan 29, 2019

                        A:  I would consider a larger one for that application.

                        by|Nov 15, 2020

                          A:  No

                          by|Jun 10, 2020

                          A:  I am not sure exactly what you are referring to when you talk about a fence post anchor but this hammer will drive a standard garden fence post into the ground with no problem.

                                A:  Yes, it's plenty heavy for that, unless you're driving into hardpan. Even then, persistence will win the day.

                                    A:  Yes, that should work as long as the ground you’re driving into isn’t pure limestone or granite.

                                            This Husky Engineer's hammer weighs about 4 pounds, 10 ounces (weighed on an accurate postal scale). It has an overall length of about 14 inches. This product has a tough, molded glass-reinforced plastic handle with comfortable rubber grip. The overall fit and finish is excellent, the best I have seen for a hammer of this size and price level. I do both landscape and land surveying work. This hammer works well for driving spikes into landscape timbers. It is about ideal in size and weight for driving 18-inch long, 1-inch diameter steel piping into the ground for marking property line corners. With its competitive pricing and high overall quality, this product is hard to beat, considering the lifetime warranty that is included.

                                            I took this Husky 4 lb. Engineer hammer out to the field to drive stakes around 4 young trees. The trees are next to the Hay field. I didn't want them to accidentally get cut down, during the Haying operation. My 16 oz. claw hammer does not have enough impact to drive 1" thick x 2" wide 5' long stakes through thick field grass & into hard ground. This 4 lb. Husky engineer hammer had no problem punching through the thick grass & pounding the stakes deep into the ground. It took less time & work to set all 12 stakes. I felt no vibration feed back through the fiberglass handle, when I broke up some old 4" thick concrete, I used to fill a hole in the field road. I also used this 4 lb. hammer to drive a nail puller under 4" long nails, pulling them up to be fully removed, with my crow bar. Again, It took only a few blows to get under the nails versus a one pound hammer, that would have taken a lot more pounding. This 4 lb. hammer has a solid feel. The fluted rubber coating around the fiberglass handle, along with the flared out end of the handle, provided a comfortable, solid grip & kept the hammer from slipping out of my sweaty hands. Under the hammer head & attached to the handle is a thick, impact protection collar, just in case I miss hitting a steel wedge driven into a piece of firewood. This is a top quality, heavy duty little monster. Everyone should have one of these.

                                            The Husky 4 pound engineer hammer is very well made. The head is made of hardened steel and the fiberglass handle with rubber grip is very strong and is firmly seated in the hammer head. It has a good grip and is nicely balanced. I like that the hammer has a broad head for pounding spikes or breaking concrete, etc. It comes with a lifetime warranty. I'd definitely recommend the 4# Husky engineer hammer for the homeowner or professional.

                                            This is a well made and sturdy four pound hammer. The handle is covered with a rubber material and has a good feel and I can get a very good grip on it. I think that even if you were sweaty or dirty it would still provide a good surface to grip/hold the hammer. The "business" end is steel and painted black. Nice ends and a good balance. I will enjoy using this hammer for many projects where a smaller hammer is needed.

                                            This is nice looking hammer, I will find lots of use for this hammer in the coming years.

We I store this hammer on my wall of tool and it will make all my tools look like they belongs to a very handy man. The weight of this hammer is perfect for minimum size projects and nice for other small and larger jobs.

                                            I am a 115 pound woman with a connective tissue disorder. I had a huge block frame made concrete blocks. This hammer is easy to swing and shatters those blocks in 3 strikes each. Im not sore from using it. The handle is fiberglass and easy on the hands. I have to say that this hammer made this job possible. I eould have had to pay 300 yo get this removed. Instead I broke it doen myself and put the small pieces in the trash can. In 2 days I have filled 3 80gallon garbage cans with concrete block remnants. Buy this hammer for yourself. You will not regret the purchase.

                                            Strong with a good grip!
                                            The Husky 4 lb. engineer hammer is a nice sledge hammer. The 14" Fiberglass soft handle has a comfortable grip and it's made of forged steel. I like the over-strike protection because I'm an ace at missing whatever it is I'm aiming for. I've used this to drive down metal fence posts to reinforce rotten cedar posts and it was effortless. Of course swinging any 4 lb hammer gets tiring, and a shorter handle might have reduced fatigue, but it would have also reduced strike power. And while there are less expensive options of this tool out there, this Husky hammer is guaranteed forever.
