John Deere announced on April 29 that it has added to its line of attachments with new Hydraulic Hammers. The HH20C, HH40C, HH60C and HH80C for skid steers, compact track loaders and compact excavators are designed to provide more efficiency than previous models.
"The Hydraulic Hammers are an exceptional addition to our line of Worksite Pro attachments that increase the versatility of any compact machine," said Gregg Zupancic, product marketing manager of John Deere Construction & Forestry. "We developed this line of hammers to be a faster and easier-to-maintain solution, so operators can focus on getting the most productivity from their equipment as possible."
The Hydraulic Hammers provide two to three times more blows per minute than previous models produced by John Deere. They also have 30 percent fewer parts, and rebuild times can be reduced to one hour (versus eight hours). A tool retention system allows for quick installation, and the hammers can be removed with one screwdriver.
The new Hydraulic Hammers also only require grease every two hours during operation. They have a 1,000-hour service interval, which reduces operational and maintenance costs.
Customers can also use five different bits with the Hydraulic Hammers for more productivity. These bids allow for work on everything from non-stratified rock to reinforced concrete.
