Product Description

Size: 8-Pound

The STANLEY FMHT56011 8lb FATMAX Sledge Hammer features a particle dampened handle; offering vibration dampening particulates in the handle that dampen vibration better than a solid core handle. It also features an Anti-Vibe handle grip that reduces vibrations for comfort and control. This hammer has a bullet nose strike face that provides 50% more power versus traditional heads - and a standard strike face on opposite end for traditional users. A shatter-proof fiberglass handle provides better durability versus wood handle. The head weight for this hammer is at 8lbs, and the handle length is 33 inches. Backed by Stanley's Limited Lifetime warranty.

I purchased this to use with wedges for spiting wood. I didn't even really notice the "bullet" striking face on the one side when I bought it. Then I got a wedge buried past where the traditional face could hit it. Flipped to the rounded side and BANG! another couple inches. Hit it again with the same result. I could strike the wedge while the top was below six inches of white ash. Awesome product.

I actually thought the FATMAX was an adult toy I modeled after the legendary Chubs Stryker, so imagine my surprise when a sledgehammer arrived on my doorstep. In all seriousness, I used this to bust up a granite outcropping in my yard and it performed great, highly recommended and would by again.

This hammer isn't for the faint of heart. A 4lb sledge puts a lot of power into motion. I use it for suspension work on trucks and will make short work of even the rustiest and tightest suspension problems. For most automotive/truck work, a 3lb hammer will do the job. But it's nice to have the extra power when you need it.

Ok, I didn't buy this for myself, but for my wife. She should be on Doomsday Preppers, or something. She has been hounding me to buy a sledge hammer, axe, and other stuff in case TSHTF (if you know preppers, you know what that means).

That said, I have swung lots of sledge hammers in my day. I have had my share of broken handles and heads that went flying. This one is built to stand up to a good number of misses without breaking.

Do be aware that if you do end up breaking the handle, you will have to burn what is left out of the head to put another handle in it.

This is a nice size and weight, and the shock-absorbing handle works very well. The day before we received it, we were trying to break apart some ridiculously sturdy built-in shelves using pry-bars and a large rubber mallet, and not only were we unable to pry several of the shelves away from each other and the supporting structure at all, the shock from hitting the shelves with the rubber mallet was really hurting wrists, shoulders and hands. We gave up after about an hour, having only managed to pry about 10 percent of the boards off, ordered this hammer, and waited for its arrival to continue the job. We received it last night, and busted up the rest of the shelves in about 1/2 hour. This design does a lot more damage to the items being demolished, while isolating our arms from the shock.

Bought this to hammer some stakes in the ground. This hammer was perfect and so well made. Hammered those 12" galvanized spikes like a champ. This will become one of my treasured tools.

Great choice for the job!

Ordered this mainly because I needed something to finish breaking up the small boulder(about 350 lbs) near my mailbox in the storm gutter area. I had already beaten the rock to about 250 lbs with a pick and an old maul. This wonderful implement enabled me to crack off enough mass from the rock to reduce it to about 70 lbs. I placed the greatly reduced rock near my driveway corner to discourage drivers from using my driveway as a turn-around point.
This sledgehammer receives my greatest recommendation and is probably enough weight for most homeowners. It is easy to swing but I'm 6 feet and 210 lbs although 67 years old..The special "bullet side" of the hammer does indeed increase striking power but the opposite standard striking
side of the hammer is quite effective too. A terrific product. :)
