Matched for the Caterpillar 345C and 365C excavators, the new H180D S hydraulic hammer features a larger piston and tool for a 15-percent increase in productivity compared to the previous model. With Auto Shut Off, the hammer is turned off when no material is present beneath, reducing high stress levels caused by blank firing. Sound suppression is standard on the 8,600-pound H180D S, which features a heavy-duty suspension system to reduce carrier shock loads. For easy set-up, Caterpillar hammer settings are pre-programmed in Cat excavator tool control systems.
