Pneumatic pick, also known as Pneumatic Breaker,is a handheld construction tool that uses compressed air as power and uses impact to break hard objects. It usually uses electric or diesel engines as power sources and has the advantages of being cheap and easy to maintain. However, the disadvantages of pneumatic picks include large compression ratio, high noise, high air pressure (8-10bar), poor crushing ability, and heavy and unportable. The application scenarios of pneumatic picks include coal mining in coal mines, planing column foot pits, digging ditches, mining soft rocks, breaking concrete, frozen soil and ice in construction and installation projects, and occasions where impact motion is required in the machinery industry.
















  • Electric pick
    is a double-insulated handheld electric tool powered by a single-phase series-excited motor. It has the characteristics of safety, reliability, high efficiency, and easy operation. It is widely used in pipeline laying, machinery installation, water supply and drainage facility construction, interior decoration, port facility construction and other construction projects. The electric pick is suitable for crushing, leveling, digging, grooving, cutting and other operations on concrete, masonry structures and asphalt pavement with a pickaxe or other appropriate accessories such as a chisel, a shovel, etc.


    In summary, pneumatic picks and electric picks each have their own advantages and applicable scenarios. Although pneumatic picks are cheap and easy to repair, their high noise, large size and low portability limit their application in certain fields. In contrast, electric picks play a more important role in the field of building and construction with their high efficiency, safety and easy operation.

    1. Use scenarios of electric picks and pneumatic picks

    1. Electric picks: suitable for scenes that require fine blasting, such as underground mines and drilling sites. Electric picks have the characteristics of precision, low noise and low vibration, which can ensure the safety and health of workers.

    2. Pneumatic picks: suitable for the demolition of materials with higher hardness, such as stone, cement and steel bars. Because pneumatic picks have strong striking force and high-speed rotation impact, demolition work is faster and more efficient.

    2. Operation of electric pick and pneumatic pick

    1. Electric pick: Electric pick is an electric tool that needs to be plugged in and turned on before it can be used. During use, attention should be paid to the traction of the wire, moisture-proof and insulation measures, etc.

    2. Pneumatic pick: Pneumatic pick is a pneumatic tool that needs to be connected to the air source before it can be used. During use, attention should be paid to the air pressure and the gas line maintenance of the oil.

    3. Advantages and disadvantages of electric pick and pneumatic pick

    1. Advantages of electric pick: Electric pick has the characteristics of precision, low noise, low vibration, etc., and will not generate a lot of dust and noise during use, which is safer.

    2. Advantages of pneumatic pick: Pneumatic pick has a strong striking force and high-speed rotating impact force, which can easily cope with materials with higher hardness.

    3. Disadvantages of electric pick: Electric pick needs to be plugged in for use, and attention should be paid to the traction of the wire, moisture-proof and insulation measures, etc. during use.

    4. Disadvantages of pneumatic pick: Pneumatic pick will generate a lot of dust and noise during use, and protective equipment needs to be worn, and the gas line maintenance of the gas source and oil during use is a link that must be paid attention to.

    In general, electric picks and pneumatic picks each have their own advantages and disadvantages, and neither is more powerful. In different scenarios, you can choose the right tool according to your needs.
