    "The big advantage the P-Max reciprocating power hammer has over most of the more massive stationary Pullmax type machines is its versatility. Not only can the P-Max be locked in place for stationary work, it is also light-weight and portable. It can be easily moved around the shop right up to the job to fabricate or repair that automobile body, fender, hood, etc. It is with this versatility in mind that the Desert Hybrids P-Max reciprocating power hammer was developed."
