Hydraulic breakers are the go-to tool of choice for anyone looking to break rock, asphalt, concrete and other construction materials. From Atlas Copco hydraulic hammers to CAT hydraulic breakers, these pieces of equipment need to be taken care of properly. Follow these three tips to prolong the life of a breaker or hammer:
Utilize Maintenance Tools
Almost all manufacturers design a specialized tool that is used to measure the condition of specific areas of the equipment. Most tools are able to check the breaker’s lower brushing, the top angle of the breaker tool, and the retaining pins. Proper use of the maintenance tool will help increase the lifespan of the hammer or breaker.
One of the easiest ways to make sure your hammer or breaker is working properly is by completing visual inspections on a routine basis. A visual inspection is a quick and easy tip that takes just a minute or two. Most operators forget this simple rule that can save a lot of headaches.
Remember to Grease The Attachment
Making sure you remember to lubricate the breaker with a proper greasing agent will drastically lower the chance of your attachment unexpectedly breaking. Every hydraulic breaker can require a certain type of grease, while some breakers even come with an automatic greasing system.
