How to Extend the Life of Your Hydraulic Hammer

Hydraulic breakers are one of the most useful construction tools of the building industry because they can demolish surfaces faster than the manual labor of a worker. A hydraulic hammer can last years if it is cared for properly. The fact that the machinery breaks up rock and concrete with the attack of a piece of metal instantly can put a lot of wear and tear on the parts. Construction companies and contractors should have an effective maintenance plan in place to prevent their hammer equipment from breaking.

If your hammer does have issues, it is best to find them before they become too big, causing a delay in projects and having to wait for it to get fixed. Did you know that the demolition tool manufacturers design hammers to need to be resealed and reassembled on a yearly basis? It is important to have your breaker serviced every 500-hours of run time.

Whether it is a used hydraulic breaker or a brand new one, following these maintenance guidelines will extend the life of your hammer tool.

  1. Measure the use of your hammer and schedule maintenance appointments accordingly.
  2. Update your breaker with new parts when needed.
  3. Make sure that the hammer is properly set up and sized for the construction task.
  4. Check that the hammer head is in sync with the system design, since various breakers range in flow and pressure.
  5. The hammer should be operated by a technician that is cautious and can control the size and power of the equipment.
  6. Grease the demolition tool to rid it of debris and to keep it lubricated. However, do not use too much grease, or it will cause buildup.
  7. Make sure to grease the tool with the right product grease that can withstand high temperature.
  8. Grease the hammer at the beginning of use and every two to three hours of operation.
  9. Consider investing in add-ons and upgrades for your breaker, which will make it improve in performance and last longer.
  10. Have your breaker inspected routinely for any possible damage or repairs.
