Looking into the purchase of a hydraulic hammer? Buying may be the right decision for larger projects or companies that will frequently need their own demolition equipment. However, if you have a one-time project or don’t have the storage space for equipment of this size, there are alternative options. Before you make any decisions, consider the benefits of renting a hydraulic hammer instead. At Gorilla Hammers, we carry hammers for sale or rent, in all different sizes for nearly any project. Wondering if renting is the right choice for you? Read more to find out what the difference is, and the benefits of renting!
Once you own a hydraulic hammer, repairs and maintenance are unavoidable and and very expensive. This can include replacing hydraulic pistons, front heads, bushings, or even cylinders. Keeping up with your parts is necessary to ensure the the safety, operation, longevity and productivity of your hammer. To easily avoid these long term hydraulic repair and maintenance costs that come with purchasing a hammer, rent one with Gorilla Hammers and ensure you are receiving the best quality for the price you pay. You can choose the rental period as well, being able to only use the hammer when it is needed.
Any new piece of equipment, such as a hydraulic hammer, needs a storage solution for it. They require very solid, expensive stands to store them vertically, and leaving them lying down over time outdoors allows water to get in and damage the cylinder and piston. Indoor storage is the best, but interior space is far more expensive and they are too heavy to move without the aid of a forklift or other piece of equipment. If you would have to store the breaker for long periods of time between uses, renting a hammer from Gorilla Hydraulic Breakers may be your most cost effective way to serve your rockbreaking needs.
If you have an excavator and a hydraulic hammer, the excavator will only be able to run that particular sized hammer. However, no single hydraulic breaker size will tackle all sitework. You will run into jobs that may be too large or too small for it. Because of this, many utility contractors, excavation and demolition companies and even quarries depend on rental excavators with hammers to handle jobs outside the scope of the hammers they own. Renting a hydraulic hammer equipped excavator allows you to expand your existing equipment fleet only as needed, without the long term commitment of purchasing a skid steer, backhoe, mini excavator or full sized excavator and a hydraulic breaker. Hammer rentals also provides excavation and demolition companies that don’t typically encounter embedded rock a way to handle “surprises” on an as needed basis.
