A hoe ram is a precision, sharp-tipped hydraulic hammer that is fitted to a piece of mobile machinery such as a tractor, excavator, backhoe or digger in order to carry out heavy duty demolition of concrete or rock surfaces, or structures. The hoe ram is an essential performance tool for any rock breaking project as it can increase the earth-moving productivity on the job site significantly when used properly. It is also a viable alternative when traditional drilling or rock blasting is not practical or permitted.
The rock hammer, as some of our operators affectionately call the hoe ram, is used on many Greenway of Nashville jobs, as we undertake projects of such scale that smaller hand-held drills or jackhammers are rendered initially redundant.There are a few different names for the hoe ram:
Hydraulic hammers also come in lots of different sizes, depending on the job: we will advise the breaker size that your project requires.
All hydraulic hammers work on the principle of hydrostatics or hydraulics. The powerful hammer, with a compartment of pressurized, non-compressible hydraulic oil, is positioned on a tractor or excavator. Force is exerted onto this canister, creating an exponential amount of force on all sides of the canister. This force is captured and used to apply tons of pressure via piston strokes.
The power of the hammer depends on the size of the canister as it converts kinetic energy into hammering energy – hence the name. All hydraulic breakers are based on a simple design with few moving parts, meaning that our machines offer a superior performance, with a long life and low operating costs.
At Greenway of Nashville, we offer two different ways to get your job done. You can either hire an experienced team of professionals to deliver your project from beginning to end, or you can rent a commercial rock hammer from us directly. We do not advise you buy one as a hydraulic hammer can cost up to 40% more than the carrier it’s mounted on, not to mention the repairs and maintenance it will need over its lifetime!
Renting a hammer can work for those people who either have prior experience of construction and heavy machinery, or for sub-contractors working on other sites that need a hydraulic hammer for a short amount of time. Our experienced team of operators can show you how to:
