RAMMER – 40 years celebrated with the launch of updated Excellence Line and launch of telematics

Rammer was in 2018 celebrating 40 years of excellence. In order to help celebrate this momentous occasion, and to reflect changing customer requirements, it has renewed both its outlook and product offering. This has led to the updating and upgrading of its Excellence Line of hydraulic hammers.

Following on from the launch of the Performance Line of hydraulic hammers earlier in 2018, Rammer has launched the updated and upgraded Excellence Line (Figure 1). This range of hydraulic hammers reflects Rammer’s desire to renew its offering and outlook through focusing on changing customer requirements. Hence one of the key features of the new Excellence Line is that safety is endemic – with all models featuring reflective stickers, e. g., to the operation of the range, no matter if the hammer is being used in quarry, demolition project, tunnel or any other application.

One of the major features of the Excellence Line is Rammer’s purpose developed RD3 remote monitoring device – a first of its kind on hammers. RD3 uses the MyFleet Telematics service to track and monitor fleet equipment usage without the need of going to the site to collect the data, being ideal for dealers, rental companies and operators. This cloud based system enables the hammers to be viewed and monitored in Google maps.

The main benefits of the system are that it enables owners and managers of fleets to know exactly where their equipment is, and how it is being used. This facilitates better business decisions through providing improved security and optimized fleet location, whilst enabling enhanced application knowledge and operator education, all accomplished via GPS data, contributing to the overall profitability of the business.

As well as RD3, the Excellence Line reflects Rammer’s developing customer focused outlook through having a host of other new features. Lower tool bushing rotating and replacement on the field increases lifetime of lower tool bushing, which contributes to reduced operating costs. This is further reflected through the use of two tool retaining pins that increase the lifetime of the tool and retaining pins, as well as increases the lifetime of the tool bushings. An IBP on/off selector is fitted to the valve body enabling easy field adjustments (2577E and up). Separate greasing channels from the valve body to the upper and lower tool bushing further increases tool and tool bushings lifetime.

Rammer’s Excellence Line continues the company’s 40-year tradition of delivering innovative hammers designed to improve profitability, safety and performance. With their new customer focused features, the line perfectly represents Rammer’s developing outlook in assisting businesses enhance their performance.
