Snap on air hammer quesions?

Does anyone know the specs. for a PH2050. I need to know the length of the piston stroke and the blows per minute. I need a more powerful air hammer.

Snap is not opened today and my internet search failed to address these questions.

Cool Specs 2050

PSI=90
2.5 CFM air consumption
dB= 102
3,400 blows/min
This is listed in the snap on catalog as their heavy duty hammer. I have one too and occasionally use it. It's OK but not exceptional. What are you doing with it? Is your air pressure correct as this will cut efficiency. Ingersoll makes good air tools too, often better than snap on.

Steve,

Do you have the PH2050? You say you have one, does that mean you have the PH205?

I want a harder hitting air hammer than I have now. Use it for suspension work. MY current one is 3400 BPM. I want one that's more like 2500 or 1800 BPM. One that has a longer piston stroke usually has less BPM but hitls harder.

My air compressor does 11.4 CFM at 90 psi and it has 100% duty cycle so I'm ok there.

Ron,
I have a Snap on tools PH2050. Same tool. It's good but the IR one is a little better and Ingersoll makes a harder hitting one. There's a link below this thread for IR tools. The yellow one is their better one. You air compressor may be a little weak so you could slightly increase the pressure.

Steve,

Thanks for the information. There was a PH2050 and a PH50E on ebay, but I decided not to bid to much for one of them and I was not the high bidder. I kind of like Snap on tools, because most of the air tools except the Blue point are made in the USA, so I see if I can get a heavy duty PH3050 at a decent price. I remeber looking at an Ingersoll Rand that was a heavy duty air hammer and I think it required about 15 or 20 CFM. It was made in the USA and was quite expensive like the Snap on.

I would assume that a heavy duty air hammer, regardless of brand, is kind of like a die grinder as far as air usage. When I use my die grinder there is no way my compressor can keep up. Itís an Ingersoll-Rand, with a 60 gallon tank, but itís only a single stage. So with a powerful air hammer it sounds like I may have to wait sometimes for the volume and the pressure in the tank to recover. Would that be right? That would be ok since I don't work on cars for a living but only as a hobby.

I think your compressor will handle the larger air hammer for intermittent use. Die grinders use way more cfm as do DA sanders. To help with air efficiency, use 3/8" hose and short air line. Keep tool well oiled. I think you'll be fine. I had a similar compressor previously and it worked fine. Now I've upgraded to a 7.5hp Quincy 2 stage which is excellent.

I found an off brand that works great. It's 2500 bpm long barrel maid by Mountain. Got it off the tool truck 2 years ago when I was repairing truck boxes. I use it very regularly building front suspensions in Class 8 trucks. I've done at least 20 since January. It was around $100. I've used the Snap On and it was better quality, but does the same job. None of them compare to the heavy duty one from Matco. It had a better pin clutch for more control.

Are you referring to the Matco MT1718?
