Rammer mark 40 years of Excellence
Forty years celebrated with the launch of updated and upgraded Excellence line and telematics
RAMMER are this year celebrating ‘40 years of excellence’ and to help commemorate the milestone occasion, and reflect changing customer requirements, the company has renewed both its outlook and its product offering, resulting the updating and upgrading of its Excellence line of hydraulic hammers, all of which feature safety-enhancing reflective stickers.
One of the major new features of the Excellence line is Rammer’s purpose-developed RD3 remote monitoring device – the first of its kind on hydraulic hammers. RD3 uses the MyFleet telematics service to track and monitor fleet equipment usage without anyone having to go to site to collect the data. This cloud-based system allows a hammer to be viewed and monitored via Google maps.
The main benefit of the system is that it allows fleet owners/managers to know exactly where their equipment is and how it is being used. This, in turn, supports better business decision-making – providing improved security and optimized fleet location, whilst allowing enhanced application knowledge and operator education (all accomplished via GPS data) – and contributes to the overall profitability of the business.
As well as RD3, the Excellence line reflects Rammer’s increasingly customer-focused outlook through various additional new features. For example, reduced tool bushing rotation and replacement in the field is designed to increase lifetime and help reduce operating costs. This is further supported by the use of two tool-retaining pins that increase the lifetime of the tool, retaining pins and tool bushings.
Also, an IBP on/off selector is fitted to the valve body, allowing easy field adjustments (2577E model and up), whilst separate greasing channels from the valve body to the upper and lower tool bushing further increase the lifetime of the tool and tool bushings.
