    Good to know. Thanks. If I do use one for demo, I'll be dropping it with an old P&H crane so might work pretty well.

    Although many building owners prefer controlled demolition nowadays, there are still those who opt for wrecking balls. I agree that we should really consider the size and weight and the demolition site as well first.

    I use an old Forklift rear weight, kind of trapizod shaped. 5,000 lbs solid cast. I pick it up with thumb and drop it or toss it.
