About Axes, Picks, Sledgehammers

When a job calls for chopping or splitting, axes and hatchets are just the tools you need. Axes have longer handles and enable you to apply more force, and while hatchets have shorter handles, they provide more precision. If it’s sheer splitting power you need, then a maul is your best bet. The wider angle on mauls makes it much more likely that the item you’re cutting will split apart with ease.

If you need to do more than splitting, picks and sledgehammers are also handy for larger-scale jobs. A pick is perfect for breaking up rock or hard soil and for digging. While a sledgehammer can help knock down walls, hammer stakes into the ground and break up large, solid pieces of stone.

Whatever task you have, Ace has plenty of lawn and garden tools to get the job done. If you’re not sure which tool to use, stop in your local Ace where you’ll get friendly advice.
