FEATURES & BENEfITS: Sealed Housing n Powercell protected, fully enclosed in housing. Bottom of housing is closed and sealed while the covers prevent material intrusion on the top. Hammer & Carrier Protection n The effective suspension system, including buffer and side pads, not only protects the hammer but also the carrier from recoil forces. Sound Suppression n All large hammer models are delivered in sound suppressed version. This results in greater operator comfort and environment protection. Slip Fit Rotatable Lower Tool Bushing n The slip t lower bushing can be rotated once in the eld without the need for special tools. This doubles its life and reduces owning and operating costs.

Automatic Shut-Off (ASO) n Prevents blank ring of the piston. Reliability and durability are increased as high stress levels internal to the hammer are reduced. Available only in D-series models. High Pressure Accumulator n High pressure hydraulic accumulator is eld serviceable and protects both the hammer circuit and carrier pump from hydraulic pressure spikes. Special Applications n Built-in lubrication port and air port make it easy to convert the hammer to automatic greasing and underwater use. Screw Adjust Pressure Control Valve n The screw adjust feature allows the adjustment of the pressure control valve without having to remove it from the hammer power cell. This simplies the adjusting process and eliminates oil spillage. Available only in D-series models.

1. 2. Shock Absorbers Provide maximum shock and recoil protection for both hammer and carrier. Accumulator Self-contained diaphragm accumulator designed for long life. The accumulator access is on the side of the hammer. This side access allows for recharging the accumulator while the hammer is mounted on the machine. Housing Symmetrical lean enclosed housing no parts to break through external shock. Hydraulic Valves The Pressure Control Valve maintains maximum hydraulic pressure to ensure that the hammer delivers all blows at full power. A check valve isolates harmful pulsation spikes from the carrier hydraulic circuit. Auto-Lube Connection and Grease Channel Provides grease to the upper and lower tool bushings to ensure proper greasing. Proper greasing provides longer life for the bushings and the tool. Auto Shut Off (ASO) Prevents blank ring and extends hammer life by reducing internal stress and heat (available on D series models only). Seal Carrier Contains special high performance seals to extend leak-proof operation. Hydraulic Brake Dampens idle strokes and prevents steel to steel contact between piston and cylinder. Piston Long piston transfers a long shock wave into the rock. Tool-piston diameters are matched for maximum energy transfer.

10. Tie-Rods Heat-torqued tie rods ensure maximum clamping force and minimum maintenance. 11. Cylinder Low recoil stress. 12. Full Length Wear Plates Long high abrasion resilient plastic wear plates with visual wear indicators which provides lower bearing pressure between hammer and housing reducing noise and increasing service life (available on D series models only). 13. Upper Tool Bushing Guides the tool to optimize in-line piston to tool contact. 14. Tool Retaining Pins Allow quick and easy tool maintenance. 15. Upper and Lower Wear Plates High abrasion resilient plastic wear plates between hammer and housing reduce noise and guide hammer assembly properly. 16. Rock Claw Special high abrasion resistant rock claw, enables quick positioning of boulders, gives maximum wear life. 17. Lower Tool Bushing Easily replaceable during normal maintenance. Grooves are added on the inside bottom portion of the tool bushing for visual wear limits indicating time to rotate or replace. 18. Dust Seals One Dust Seal helps prevent foreign material from entering the housing. This helps to reduce wear on the front head and wear plates. The second Dust Seal prevents foreign material from entering the grease between the lower tool bushing and the tool. This reduces the wear on the lower tool bushing and tool. 19. Tool Specially heat-treated tools match piston diameter and mass, to deliver full blow energy.
