Hydraulic hammers, just like any other piece of machinery, do not last forever. Rigorous use, wear and tear, old age and improper maintenance are a few causes of demolition tool malfunctions. If you are a builder who has ever dealt with a broken hydraulic hammer, you’ve probably experienced a delay in the production of your construction project. That can seem like the worst, especially when expectations are high and deadlines are tight. On top of the stress of down time, you’ve also got to figure out what to do with it next.
