A club hammer is a larger type of hammer used for demolition and for hammering large objects into the ground, such as marquee poles and fence posts. This is a job that you might also use a rubber mallet for, as this can reduce vibrations when striking an object - something you need to consider when usingpower toolstoo.
A pin hammer is used for delivering large force to small areas, with regular mallets usually delivering a large force to a large area.
