Allied Construction Products LLC held a demo event for its new line of m- and in-Series hydraulic hammers and Ho-Pac plate compactor attachments on July 20 at the company’s Marblehead Testing Grounds in Lakeside/Marblehead, OH.
m-Series Modules Can Be Rebuilt Separately
The Rammer m-Series hydraulic hammer has been added to Allied’s full product line.
The m-Series hammers are built with a modular design made up of three major components – housing, impact and tool modules. With this all new modular design, maintenance is quicker, rebuilding is easier and all modules can be overhauled separately.
The m-Series hammers feature:
The m-Series hammers are available in two models – the model 14 and the model 18. The model 14 requires 48 gpm at 2,321 psi and breaks at a rate of 1,000 blows per minute. The model 18 requires 58 gpm at 2,321 psi and breaks at a rate of 800 blows per minute.
Mounted on excavators, the m-Series hydraulic hammers are built for the demolition of concrete structures, building foundations, pavement, trench rock and oversize rock.
Join the “in-Crowd”
The in-Series hammers are built to meet the growing demands of the rental market and offer contractors the most up-to-date hammer technology. The most distinctive feature of the in-Series hydraulic hammers is a massive trapezoidal tool that offers considerable benefits over traditional small hammer tools. This non-breakable tool provides extended service-life combined with increased productivity.
The in-Series hammers feature:
The in-Series hammers are available in four models – the model 8, model 11, model 15 and model 22 – ranging from a working weight of 152 to 453 lbs., operating pressures from 2,030 to 2,175 psi, oil flows from 3 to 18 gpm and blows per minute from 1,800 to 2,100.
Mounted on a mini-excavators, skid steers and backhoes, the in-Series hydraulic hammers are built for the demolition of concrete structures, building foundations and pavement.
The Extreme Ho-Pac – A New Generation of Compacting
The all-new extreme Ho-Pacs – models 500, 1000, 1600 and 2300 – now deliver more impact energy, multiple bolt-on base plates, an errorless, four-function valve, a variety of mounting configurations and maintenance-free oil splash bearing lubrication.
The advantages of the all-new generation of extreme Ho-Pacs include:
Using an eccentric , rotating weight that creates vibration and impulse energy, the carrier-mounted Ho-Pac provides the needed forces for effective soil compaction and driving.
The Ho-Pac features specifically-designed rubber mounts that direct the energy forces to the compaction plate, not the carrier’s boom.
Static downpressure and the high impulse vibration forces produced by the Ho-Pac are ideal for compacting granular materials. The vibrations generate stress waves, which bring the soil’s air and moisture to the surface. As a result, the soil particles are rearranged, compressed and compacted. These same forces also effectively compact cohesive materials.
As a compactor, Ho-Pacs are ideal for trench, slope and excavation compaction. They are also suited for compacting waste materials and for breaking up frozen coal. An optional swivel-top mounting bracket permits precise positioning of the Ho-Pac without repositioning the carrier.
As a driver, Ho-Pacs offer a faster, less-expensive technique for driving wood, steel an aluminum sheeting, H and I beams, piling, posts and sea walls.
The Allied Ho-Pacs operate off of the machine’s own hydraulic system and reach out to work anywhere the machine’s boom can reach. And, the Ho-Pacs interchange with the machine’s bucket in minutes. An optional swivel-top mounting bracket permits precise positioning of the Ho-Pacs without repositioning the carrier.
Because it’s both a compactor and a driver, the Allied Ho-Pacs permit even the smallest contractor or municipality to have this dual capability available.
The all-new generation of extreme Ho-Pacs are rugged, versatile and reliable.
