CAN YOU HELP? New York interior demolition and garbage pickup job leads to hammer mystery

DiMola Bros crew member with Porter-Cable electric hammer

I might need your help with this one.

It’s a Porter-Cable Kango Electric Hammer Type M. I can’t find any facts online about this object, even with the following product information:

Hammer No.: 48172 M

Volts: 110 / 115 Amps: 6.8

Watts: 750

Detailed view of hammer info.

What I do know is that Porter-Cable is a huge tool manufacturing company that started focusing on power tools as far back as 1914, according to the company’s Web site. The company was started in 1906 by R.E. Porter, G.G. Porter and F.E. Cable, with just $2,300 and a big idea.

They started producing an eclectic group of items, such as type-forming machinery, automobile pumps, illuminating gas lights, an old-fashioned pencil sharpener and other machine tools. Porter-Cable power tools because increasingly popular in 1920s, years after 21-year-old Art Emmons came into the picture. Emmons was hired as a chief engineer, and he invented the helical drive circular saw, as well as the portable electric belt sander.

I found this Porter-Cable electric hammer on a garbage pickup job in New York, and it’s typically used for chipping and breaking concrete. It would probably come in quite handy during my New York interior demolition jobs!

A more modern version is the Hilti TE 905, which I own, as well. If you have any other information on this product, please share your knowledge by commenting on the blog!

    We assist demolition companies in the proper disposal and recycling of electronic equipment and pay you by the pound. Many state laws require companies to properly recycle all electronics, medical, and telecommunications equipment especially in a controlled demolition project. More and more U.S. cities are starting to require, or strongly encourage, contractors to minimize the amount of construction, hazardous and demolition material being sent to the landfill. At Pager and Cellular Communications, LLC we like to call this Green Demolition, or as contractors call it Internal demolition. My company will pick up for free and recycle anything (Nationwide) from a demolition project with a cord or battery including but not limited to:
