Jackson Pulverizer Concrete Demolition Hammer - Review


It's hard to deny something called The Pulverizer.

We were thinking of leaving this review at a simple two word, "Hulk SMASH!" But we thought that might be a little corny. But still, if you took the Jackson Pulverizer and melted it down to its essence, that's pretty much what you'd be left with; a massive green dude in purple shorts destroying everything in his path.


Our favorite thing about the Pulverizer is that it doesn't even try to be a hammer, or anything other than a damage-doer (+3 against the undead). It has a massive striking head, big long nail pullers, some kind of bending hole in the center of the head, a scraper down at the base of the handle and another nail puller down there as well.

There's also a big, fat, nubby, textured handle that does everything it can to make sure that the tool stays in your hand and not in the air heading for the car parked ten feet behind you. Right above the handle is a little bit of exposed metal that's in a triangular shape, making it perfect for...yet more destruction.


In a wild twist of irony, if you look at the head of the tool from the side, it bears a close resemblance to a bunny rabbit.

So Jackson sent us one of these fellas to test out. How exactly does one test something called The Pulverizer? Pretty simple question actually...one takes it and commences to pulverizing things. Which is exactly what we did.

Since we don't have any demolition on the horizon, we walked around the property and tried destroying everything that looked like it might be difficult to destroy, concentrating on masonry. Bricks and cinder blocks put up a pathetic amount of resistance to this tool. A big chunk of concrete stuck on the end of an uprooted fencepost fared about the same. We easily took apart an old lumber rack and a few other odds and ends.


The Pulverizer weighs about 3.3lbs, so using it is comparable to a 3lb drilling hammer, except that the handle is choked up close to the head. Because of this, gloves are highly recommended when using this tool. If you go bare handed, bring some band-aids...the kind that can wrap around a knuckle.

So this is yet another entry in the "Interesting Demolition" category. What's nice about this one is that it's got some heft behind it, but it's also small enough to fit in a standard tool bag. That, and the fact that it's called The Pulverizer.

This one's going to set you back about $35.

A must have inexpensive but HIGHLY effective breaching tool that you should be able to have immediate access to in the event of any foreseen or unforeseen natural or man made disaster, as in the weather event/s of Oct. 2012.
I own one, can easily be thrown into a back pack if you must evacuate, or get in to save a neighbor.
This tool will allow you to bust through and out of a car, flood or fire situation, into or out of a car, right through a wall or easily breach a stuck door.
I purchased mine for $34.00 on Ebay.
Breaching tools used by Fire and rescue teams can run $250.00-$450.00.

If I had a Pulverizer,
I'd pulverize my deck posts,
I'd pulverize the stumps,
All over my land.
I'd pulverize concrete,
I'd pulverize mortar,
I'd pulverize the ice between my gutters and my shingles,
Without freezing my hands.

if you look closely on the side of this hammer the inscription reads" Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor."
