There is no tool more necessary for
surveying than the good old sledge hammer. Here you can find any
shape or size to fit your needs. We've focused on the fiberglass
handles because of their superior durability. Especially with
green field personnel, you can go through a lot of wooden hammer
handles. I've never broken a fiberglass one, ever.
It's pretty hard to find survey
monuments without one of these. The best of the bunch is the
composite-handled heavy-duty shovel, but if cost is an issue, the
wooden-handled shovels may be more your style.
Don't you hate it when you get that
iron rod driven almost all the way into the pavement, and it hits
bedrock or concrete? The top starts to bend or mushroom so you
can't cap it, and you admit defeat... That's when you pull out
your hacksaw. You might get a good deal on longer lengths of
rebar, too, and want to cut your own.
Every office needs one of these.
When that property corner falls in concrete or bedrock, what do you
do? Are you in a locality that allows curb screws for
monumentation? These are what you want. We've left out
anything less than 18 Volts, because I can tell you from experience

great substitute for a hacksaw, too. For rotary hammers, see the
Rotary hammers are a must for those
areas that require centerline monumentation. With modern-day
superpave mixes, the tried-and-true method of bull-pricking iron rods
through the asphalt are behind us. The pavement is simply too
hard. These rotary hammers will punch a hole through for you to
pop in an iron with little effort. The corded hammers are still
a little better, but the convenience of not having to have a generator
far outweighs the edge in horsepower. These you can easily
toss in the truck without getting a hernia in the process. Also
included are bits.
