Tool King is selling this factory-reconditioned Makita 8.3A, 3/4″ hex demolition hammer for only $200. It weighs 11 pounds, bashes away at 2,900 BPM, and comes with a case — not a bad tool if you’re starting on a demo job.
A demolition hammer will treat your body a lot better than a sledgehammer will, and it’s quicker, too. Of course, reconditioned tools can be iffy, but they usually hold up as well as new ones. Check the warranty details first, though.
