The Rammer 2577 PRO, one of two new PRO models
Following the launch of the Rammer 4099 PRO, the company has introduced two new PRO hydraulic hammers.
The Rammer 2577 PRO and Rammer 5011 PRO are suitable for carriers in the 21-32tonne and 43-80tonne weight range respectively.
The hammers have been specifically designed to work horizontally and undertake tunnelling duties in hard rock, being purpose-built to withstand high levels of dust. The 1,940kg Rammer 2577 PRO and the 5,300kg Rammer 5011 PRO are both based on the field-proven Rammer 2577 and 5011 hammers, and the new models share many key features of these units.
Rammer says that both new models possess customer-focused features such as an Idle Blow Protector that works regardless of working mode to provide greater levels of protection. “Additionally they are equipped with long-life, high-tension VIDAT tie rods for improved reliability, extended service periods and lower operating costs,” says Rammer.
“Customers choosing the PRO range will be able to benefit from a sealed housing structure that prevents the ingress of dust and dirt, thereby extending the working life of both the hammer and the tool. A top cover plate has sealed through apertures for stump hydraulic hoses, and features sealed hose connections for grease, air and water.
“To match the demands of the extreme applications in which they will work, the Rammer PRO range models are also offered with special tools for horizontal primary breaking which have been designed to work with a broad range of auxiliary systems.”
