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.
Locate a Demolition Tool Service
Well, there is no sense in giving it a funeral! The first thing you should do is locate and contact an experienced demolition tool service company. They are located all over the country, so distance shouldn’t be an issue unless the company has an inadequate delivery system. Make sure you do your research and select the one that meets the company’s budget while providing topnotch services that benefit your construction objectives. You should also make sure that the service company will be able to meet your needs as a customer – our service offers 24-hour turnaround time, unlike most.
Inspection and Analysis for Diagnosis
Once you have targeted a quality demolition tool service, have the hydraulic tool sent to them for an inspection and analysis. The highly skilled technicians will examine every part of the hydraulic breaker from top to bottom. This procedure will allow the technicians to diagnose the hydraulic hammer to find out if it is repairable or broke beyond repair. Once you have the detailed report laying out the issues of the demolition tool, you can make the best decision on how to move forward with it. Of course, the professionals of the hydraulic breaker service company will also be able to advise you on your options.
Repair the Broken Parts
If your Allied Rammer breaker is able to be repaired, it can be fixed promptly with a part replacement. Most demolition tool services already have a variety of hammer parts in stock. If you can get the part used as opposed to brand new, it will save your construction company a substantial amount of money. After it is repaired, it will be shipped back to your location so that you can continue with the progress of your construction project.
Opt for a Replacement
If your breaker is irreparable, it may be time for you to purchase a new one. Current versions of hydraulic breakers are now being manufactured with newly advanced features, such as vibration absorption and noise reduction. If you’d rather go down the cost-effective route, you can opt for a certified rebuilt hydraulic breaker, but we recommend you get a warranty with it. You can also trade-in the broken hydraulic hammer for a new or used one. It will most likely be recycled in parts to be used to fix other breakers.
