Increase in hydraulic hammer’s size lends to boost in productivity

The Caterpillar H180D S hydraulic hammer has increased in size for a 15-percent increase in productivity. The hammer weighs 8,600 pounds and fits Cat 345C and 365C hydraulic excavators. An Auto Shut Off feature reduces high stress levels caused by back firing by turning the hammer off when no material is beneath it. The suspension system significantly reduces shock loads transmitted to the machine during hammer operation to improve operator comfort and extend life of machine components. Other features include standard sound suppression and heavy-duty tie rods to accommodate the increase in performance.
