You should first determine the solidity of the type of concrete you will be working on. This will be a guide to the amount of power you require your power tool to give. Another consideration is the nature of work you wish to perform with the power tool, for example if you will be employing the tool for clipping, chipping or drilling work. Hence you may choose to use a dedicated or general type. A good example is a combination demolition hammer which may be used for all the three applications and a dedicated hammer which can be best used for drilling.
Other considerations when choosing the appropriate tool to use include the power source and the speed specification. Different tools use different power sources such as electricity, battery or fuel and hence the proper tool should be selected depending on the available power source. Different machines operate at different speeds depending on the work they are designed to perform for example a combination hammer has a high speed that delivers a high impact force and is ideal for chiseling or drilling in hard concrete walls.
You should also check for all the available accessories and attachments available for the equipment that you have selected and how easily they can be fixed to the tool. This will give a wide range or versatility of the different jobs the tool will be able to do. The job specification is also an important consideration as it determines the optimal range specifications of the tool to be selected. The room for movement at the work site is also an important deliberation as it guides you on whether to get a wired or a cordless power tool.
The Delta company has changed hands several times since it was founded by Herbert Tautz in 1919 in his Milwaukee, Wisconsin garage. Tautz focused on small tools but when Delta was purchased by Rockwell in 1945, the company made a profitable shift to the stationary tools - like planers and bench sanders - it's renowned for today. Delta isn't the only name this line has carried, however; Rockwell enveloped the company on takeover before selling it to Pentair, which re-introduced the Delta name before selling out to Black & Decker in 2004.
Some of the more common motorized tools in use today can be bought as either cordless (battery equipped) or corded. With cordless models, a tool’s ability and strength are often determined by its battery size.
