Our Overall Thoughts

So is this thing a Beast or a Bust? We would have to say that it is for sure a Beast. Although it may not quite pack the punch that bigger pnuematic jack hammers do it most certainly holds it’s own in the electric jack hammer category.

Let’s Have A Look At This Dewalt Jack Hammer

This ridiculously powerful and efficient D25980K Pavement Breaker from Dewalt is a heavy duty, durable tool that is designed to smash concrete, pavement, stone and more with ease. With it’s 15 amp motor that puts out 1600W of power and 61 Ft. Lbs. of impact energy there is most certainly no lack of power. The 15 amp motor also features a soft start motor you can worry less about bit walking and overload.

Also due to the Active Vibration Control System that reduces vibration up to 70% paired with the rubber covered handles, you can expect less fatigue and jarring motions which tend to kick the crap out of a guy throughout a long hard day of use. Don’t get us wrong though you are still going to want to invest in a good pair of anti-vibration gloves as you should with any jack hammer.

 Dewalt D25980K Review – Pros!

Dewalt D25980K Review – Cons!

As you can probably tell already I don’t have to much bad to say about the Dewalt D25980 Electric Jackhammer. Some people say that they don’t like how heavy it is at around 80 pounds but that weight is appreciated when it comes to smashing through stubborn concrete. Another thing which isn’t really any thing to do with the Demolition Hammer itself is the quality of the cart included with the D25980K, it is a little flimsy and the tires seem rather cheap for such an amazing concrete breaker.
