It's pretty fast if you don't mind the black smelly smoke and the sticky gooey rubber on your gloves when you're done. ;)

Just enough power to break everything behind the crankshaft.

In my experience the best hammer is the one with a really good air supply behind it.

The strength any air hammer hits is just a function of its piston size, stroke and the air your feeding it, right?

More pressure and any hammer will hit harder; it's just a question of whether it will last at those pressures. How is a Snap-On going to actually hit harder than a Harbor Freight if it's the same size and has the same air pressure?

But it takes a hell of a compressor to run an air hammer for more than a minute or so at 120 PSI.
