New hammer ups the power, reduces the number of moving parts

Designed for high productivity and reliability, the Caterpillar H55D hydraulic hammer features a simplified design that reduces the number of parts by almost half and boosts power and blow rate when compared to previous H50 models. Recommended for carriers weighing 5,500 to 9,900 pounds, the new hammers are sized for use with Cat’s skid steers and multi-terrain loaders as well as its 303.5 and 303CR compact hydraulic excavators. The energy class rating for the H55Ds is 500 foot-pounds.
