Hydraulic Hammers



Hydraulic Hammers are a crucial tool used on excavators for demolition and breaking through rocky environments. One feature that should not be overlooked before your next purchase is whether to use a Monoblock Hammer or a Tie Rod Hammer.

Tie Rod Hammers are designed by using multiple plates of steel sandwiched together with seals. These plates are then joined together with long bolts called tie rods. The tie ro...

Hydraulic hammers are one of the most important attachments for excavators.  On compact excavators they are primarily used for two purposes: demolition and rock removal.  With these applications the frequency of the hammer plays an important part, but what is better – high or low frequency?

Generally low frequency hammers with a higher impact force will offer better productivity on mini excavators than lower impact force highe...

Technological advances have seen some hammer manufactures start to move away from diaphragm accumulators to mechanical designs.

So what are the pros and cons of both?

Diaphragm Accumulators:  Hydraulic hammers require a nitrogen gas charge inside an accumulator, allowing the hammer to make its impact once a required pressure is re...
