New PRO hammers from Rammer

Based on customer demand for new, extreme duty hydraulic hammers, and following the successful launch of the Rammer 4099 PRO, we are pleased to announce two new PRO hammers. The Rammer 2577 PRO and Rammer 5011 PRO are hammers that are as innovative as they are tough. Suitable for carriers in the 21-32 ton and 43-80 ton weight range respectively, the new models possess all the key features that have made Rammer the world’s leading hydraulic hammer brand, but come with a number of key additions that take the PRO range to the extreme.

We are pleased to announce the launch of two new PRO range hammers: Rammer 2577 PRO and Rammer 5011 PRO. These have been specifically designed to work horizontally and undertake tunneling duties in hard rock, being purpose built to withstand high levels of dust. As innovative as they are tough, the new PRO hammers are designed for carriers in the 21-32 and 43-80 ton weight range respectively.
The 1940 kg Rammer 2577 PRO and the 5300 kg Rammer 5011 PRO are both based on the field proven Rammer 2577 and 5011 hammers. These new models share many key features that have established these units as some of the most popular hammers in the world. Both new models possess customer focused features as an Idle Blow Protector that works regardless of working mode to provide greater levels of protection. Additionally they are equipped with long-life, high-tension VIDAT tie rods for improved reliability, extended service periods and lower operating costs.

Going Extreme
These standard Rammer features are backed by a range of enhancements that help the PRO range to withstand extreme working conditions. Customers choosing the PRO range will be able to benefit from a sealed housing structure that prevents the ingress of dust and dirt, thereby extending the working life of both the hammer and the tool. A top cover plate has sealed through apertures for stump hydraulic hoses, and features sealed hose connections for grease, air and water.

The PRO hammers possess a sturdy housing design and wear-resistant wear-plates that make them perfect for horizontal working duties. This includes such demanding applications as tunneling. To match the demands of the extreme applications in which they will work, the Rammer PRO range models are also offered with special tools for horizontal primary breaking which have been designed to work with a broad range of auxiliary systems.

Going Underground
For customers working in tunneling applications, Rammer has put together a full package of auxiliary systems and solutions: the AGW unit (Air Grease Water). These have been designed to protect the hammer from the demands of this extreme application, delivering lower owning and operating costs, thereby making the Rammer PRO range the toughest breakers in the world.

The unique AGW unit comprises of some special features designed to aid tunneling activities. These consist of the proven Ramair air flush system that prevents potentially harmful dust ingress; the Ramlube I automatic lubrication system to ensure consistent and thorough greasing; and the water jet dust suppression package to minimize the creation of dust during breaking.
Hydraulically-actuated and requiring no additional power supply, the AGW Unit is easy and safe to install and maintain. It helps ensure that all Rammer PRO hammers are protected and productive throughout their working life. All these key features are backed by long-life, wear resistant, genuine Rammer parts that are readily available from our global dealer network.
