Hammers comprised of considerably fewer parts

By |  November 26, 2013

Caterpillar launched 10 E-Series hammers that are designed for use with mini excavators, skid-steer loaders and backhoe loaders. They’re available in both silenced and side-plate versions. Four sizes – the H35, H45, H55 and H65 – are offered in two mounting configurations for installation on both Caterpillar and competitive carriers.

According to Cat, several of the hammers’ features assure convenient installation, comfortable operation and long hammer life. The hammers are designed and engineered to match auxiliary flows and pressures of Cat machines. Plus, hydraulic ports are positioned for convenient installation, the company says. As soon as the hammer is plugged in, it is ready to perform.

The suspension system on the silenced models include buffers at the top and bottom to absorb reflective forces and isolate them from the machine. A suspension jack helps to dampen vibration and sound.

To protect the hammer from internal stress, an automatic shutoff can be activated. This instantly stops the piston when the hammer breaks through material, which, in turn, protects the hammer from blank firing. In addition, Cat says these new hammers have 47 percent fewer parts than their D-Series predecessors. This allows for quicker and easier servicing, according to the company.
