Dante Constructions' small Rammer 455 breaker
Australian construction company Dante Constructions has bought a small Rammer 455 breaker through local dealer, Walkers Hammers of Victoria. With a staff of ten, plus a long-serving team of contractors, Dante Constructions provides a range of building and maintenance services in Victoria. To provide enhanced levels of service the company recently bought a 3.5tonne Takeuchi TB128FR excavator, and subsequently went looking for a breaker to work with it.
After being contacted by company director Frank Mazzitelli, Walkers Hammers loaned Dante Constructions a Rammer 455 to see how he liked it. Mazzitelli says he was impressed with the total Walkers Hammers’ package, not just the breaker itself, but also service and support.
“From the word go, Walkers couldn’t do enough for us. They were the first to supply the Rammer on site and mount it to my machine,” says Mazzitelli.
“It’s a small hammer, on a small machine, and currently we are using it primarily to break up factory concrete floor slabs and plinths. It’s operating in pretty tight spots, breaking relatively high strength concrete, and I would say it performs magnificently.”
