Caterpillar has revealed the new B-Prefix hydraulic hammers

There are four models in the new B-Prefix hammer range – the silenced B4(s) and B6(s) along with the unsilenced B4 and B6.

All four are designed for ‘plug-and-play’ operation and are compatible with a wide range of compact machinery including skid steer loaders, multi-terrain loaders, compact track loaders, mini excavators (with operating weights between three to eight tonnes) and backhoe loaders.

 Cat says the B-Prefix hammers use a simple modular design with just two moving parts in the piston and valve. The hammers use flat-top mounting to ensure a compact working area and maximum compatibility with various brackets and couplers.

The major components in the hammers (cylinder, back-head, front-head, piston and engaging tool) have been manufactured from heavy-duty materials to ensure a long productive life for the implements protected against breakage and wear.

The piston inside the hammers has been designed to transfer long shockwaves back into the material and its diameter has been matched for maximum energy transfer. The design and surface finish of the piston also provide improved oil retention and seal life.

The B-Prefix hammers are easy to service, with the grease fitting and gas pressure check points accessible while the hammer is on the machine. An included toolbox gives operators a charging kit, hammer paste and spare parts.

 The hammers are also compatible with a number of tool types including moil, cone, parallel and transverse chisels as well as blunts, which allows the hammers to be adapted to a wide range of applications.
