A hydraulic hammer is a big investment. This construction equipment is an attachment on an excavator and operates on the principle of hydraulics. It is used to demolish structures and break rocks, by applying high pressure from its small pressurized hydraulic oil canister. Hydraulic hammers are far superior to and more powerful than many other hand-held hammers. It’s piston strokes and size allows its force to vary. This is simply a workhorse that any construction or demolition team would want in their arsenal. Still, this hammer requires many accessories or hydraulic hammer parts to perform efficiently and produce the best results. Let’s take a look at five such accessories.
Storing the hammer is an important part of maintenance. The hammer stand is useful in storing the hammer when it is not being used. The hammer is stored in an upright position that shields it from damage. This serves to extend the lifespan of the hammer and allow it to perform properly. The weight of the attachment should rest on the frame and not on the point that could become damaged in a standing position.
This lubricating tool works by automatically greasing hydraulic hammers. It keeps it adequately lubricated and in quality shape when a project is being performed. This greasing kit automatically provides grease to the chisel and bushing area during the time that the hammer is working. An adequate amount of grease will minimize wear in the bushings and chisel and eliminates the need for manual greasing. The system equipped with an automatic hammer shutdown that triggers if the grease reservoir is empty.
Sometimes a big job requires a lot of energy to get the job done. Nitrogen tanks act a booster that enhances the performance of the hydraulic hammer. It makes good sense that some contractors purchase a nitrogen tank to kick their hammer’s performance up another level, giving it added energy during projects that require a high degree of power to complete the job right.
Hydraulic tool kits are great for convenience and safety. Most kits include all the necessary hydraulic components to work on any particular application that needs to be handled. This can help to keep operators safe. Kits can contain a hydraulic cylinder, lightweight hand pump hose, and couplers.
Over time, there is some wear and tear on the surface of hydraulic breakers. There can be cracks and chips that can be repaired. Paint touch-up is usually a finishing element in the maintenance department.
Hydraulic hammer breakers are powerful equipment that can take on some of the toughest construction jobs out there. Hydraulic hammer accessories improve the performance of the equipment and productivity as well.
