Quality Engineered

Design

Simple, reliable, industry-standard modular design with two moving parts in the piston and valve

Flat-top mounting enables compact working envelope and compatibility with a full complement of brackets to suit preference of coupler, linkage kinematics or machine size

Field Service

Bushings are field-replaceable and lower bushing can be rotated 90 degrees for improved wear performance

Included toolbox contains charging kit, hammer paste and spare parts

Housings are designed to facilitate common maintenance items. Grease fitting and gas pressure check point are easily accessed with hammer on machine

Gas operation

Gas-fired operation cycle delivers consistent, long-term high production

Major Components

Cylinder, back-head, front-head, piston and tool are manufactured with high - quality materials and processes

Housings

Heavy-duty housing construction protects against breakage and wear

Piston

Piston transfers long shock waves into material; piston diameters are matched for maximum energy transfer; piston design and surface finish provide superior oil retention and seal life

Oil-control valve

Inward-type oil-control valve has high structural integrity and low failure rate

Mounting Brackets

Interchangeability between H-prefix and B-prefix models

Tool types for the new hammers include moil, cone, parallel and transverse chisel, and blunt, allowing the hammer to be adapted to an extensive range of applications.
