To help mark Rammer's 40th birthday, the hydraulic hammer brand has renewed both its outlook and its product offering. Pictured is the renewed 2577E hammer
Rammer celebrated 40 years of excellence during 2018. To reflect the landmark, and changing customer requirements, it has renewed both its outlook and its product offering. This has led to the updating and upgrading of its Excellence line of hydraulic hammers.
One of the major features of the Excellence line is Rammer’s purpose-developed RD3 remote monitoring device - the first of its kind on hammers. RD3 uses the Sandvik MyFleet telematics service to track and monitor fleet equipment usage without needing to go to the site to collect the data - ideal for dealers, rental companies and operators. This cloud-based system enables the hammers to be viewed and monitored via Google maps.
The main benefits of the system are that it enables fleet owners/managers to know exactly where their equipment is, and how it is being used. This supports better business decision-making - providing improved security and optimised fleet location, whilst enabling enhanced application knowledge and operator education (all accomplished via GPS data) - and contributing to the overall profitability of the business.
As well as RD3, the Excellence line’s onsite lower tool bushing rotation and replacement increases lifetime, which helps to reduce operating costs. This is further supported by two tool retaining pins that increase the lifetime of the tool, retaining pins and tool bushings. An IBP on/off selector is fitted to the valve body, enabling easy field adjustments (2577E and up). Separate greasing channels from the valve body to the upper and lower tool bushing further increase the lifetime of the tool and tool bushings.
