The easiest way to pick the right sledgehammer is to think of the jobs you want to do with it. Are you looking to handle large jobs that will require so much force? If that is the case, look for a long-handled and heavy hammer, which brings down enough force to demolish concrete and drywall. If you only need to handle light jobs, you need a light hammer.
Great for driving in stakes, heavy demolition work in construction like fracturing stone and concrete, driving fence posts, rebar work, and bending or shaping metal. Also great for police fire and rescue applications as well as in railroad work.
