3 Tips When Choosing a Hydraulic Hammer

Are you in the market for a new hydraulic hammer? If you want to find one that will perform like a champ but you aren’t sure how to find the best fit, then Hydraulic Breaker Services, LLC can help. We sell hydraulic hammers that are guaranteed to get the job done right. Plus, we can help you with a few pointers that will make choosing one easy.

1. Give a demo.
One of the best ways to guarantee that you are buying the best hydraulic breaker for your money is by giving it a demo. Equipment is a huge investment, so you want to be sure that whatever you buy is a good fit. A demo will help ensure that you’re getting the best bang for your buck.

Plus, running a machine for a few days will let you find out if it really lives up the manufacturer’s claims. If the hammer performs to your expectations, then you can rest assured that you’ve got a good piece of equipment on your hands.

2. Check flow.

It’s important to check for the flow requirements on the hammer that you intend to buy. You’ll want to make sure that it matches your carrier correctly. Some hydraulic hammers require more flow than other hammers to operate optimally.

If your flow is inadequate, then you’ll be faced with a slow, nonproductive hammer. A hammer with too much flow, on the other hand, will lead to overheating. Eventually, it will destroy the entire hammer.

It’s important to remember that many carriers, even if they’re the right size, can cause overflow. Before placing any attachment on a carrier, get the unit tested to ensure that it’s set to the safety marker for that particular attachment.

3. Ask for references.
Many people get shy about asking for references, but it’s one of the best ways to guarantee that you’re getting a solid, dependable piece of equipment. Most hydraulic hammer dealers have a wide enough customer base that it should be easy for them to provide you with good references. Asking for reference scan save you several dollars in the long run, so what do you have to lose?
