A jackhammer is a powerful pneumatic or electro-mechanical tool used for drilling into concrete, rock, or other hard surfaces. Jackhammers use rapid hammering action to break apart the material, which can then be excavated.

Jackhammers are mainly used in the construction industry for demolishing concrete, asphalt, and rock surfaces as well as for digging foundation holes, tunneling, and roadwork. They can also be used for landscaping projects such as digging drainage ditches around sidewalks and driveways, as well as for various landscaping projects.
