Impact Testing

I am looking for a way to test the impact force of a reciprocating tool. I know there is drop testing but would I just have to increase gravity. I would like to simulate the force of 1500-2500lbs acting on the reciprocating rod as if the tool was to hit a piece of solid metal while cutting and stop instantly.

Any ideas are appricated.
