Hawks FAQs

A hawk is a tool used to hold and transport drywall compound to the work area. It typically consists of an aluminum or magnesium plate with a handle that allows for easy maneuvering.

 

Common types of hawks include aluminum hawks with wood, Durasoft, or Ergo-Grip handles, magnesium hawks with wood or ProForm handles, and the Dewalt Blackhawk.

 

Aluminum hawks are lightweight and durable, while magnesium hawks are even lighter and provide a smoother finish due to their low friction properties.

 

The size of the hawk is largely a matter of personal preference, but most hawks range from 12 to 16 inches in width. Choose a size that fits comfortably in your hand and is appropriate for the amount of drywall compound you need to transport.

 

Hawks typically come with wood, Durasoft, Ergo-Grip, or ProForm handles. Look for a handle that provides a comfortable grip and reduces fatigue during use.

 

A swivel ring system allows for greater mobility of the hawk, enabling you to get into tight spaces and corners more easily.

 

After each use, clean your hawk with a dry cloth to remove any excess drywall compound. Avoid using water, as it can cause corrosion. Store your hawk in a dry and protected place to prevent damage.
