Surestrike 2010November 2010
Surestrike hammers are drop or impact hammers that break rock and demolish concrete using a high single blow impact energy rather than high frequency vibration as conventional hammers. The advantage to the user is little or no vibration into the carrier, low noise levels, high production, and minimal maintenance. The Surestrike hammers are easy on the carrier because they do not transmit energy back into the carrier during operation. Operators approve of the Surestrike hammers because they are easy to operate and the lack of vibration into the carrier does not wear on the operator. The operator controls the strength of every blow, therefore can break the largest or smallest of materials with the blows required.
No nitrogen, accumulators, or seals are required for the Surestrike hammer. Only a bi-directional hydraulic system, similar to a shear, grapple, or thumb is required for operation.
The high, single-blow impact energy will spider web crack concrete rather than punch or drill holes in the concrete. Although the concrete surface shows only marginal cracking, the impact energy drives the shock deep into the concrete, breaking the concrete below the surface but allowing the surface to be driven on until removal.
The high, single-blow energy also vibrates the steel loose of the concrete so rebar is easily and effectively removed during the demolition process.
Although each blow from the Surestrike produces approximately the same amount of noise as a conventional hammer, the fact the Surestrike only requires 1 to 5 percent of the blows as a conventional hammer produces a much higher tolerable noise daily limit for the operator and surrounding homes, businesses, and personnel.
MODELS: Surestrike offers 5 different models from the smallest 10,000 ft-lb RC10 model to the massive 75,000 ft-lb model 6000. The RC10 is designed to break smaller rock and relatively thin concrete, up to 16” thick. The model 6000 will break the largest and thickness and highest strength concrete with ease. All models can be excavator or loader mounted with pin on or quick connections. Each model uses either blunt, chisel, moil, or concrete buster points, depending on the operators’ preference and the job to perform.
DEALERS/AVAILABILITY: Surestrike believes local dealers are the best method to support the hammer and the customer. A trained Surestrike dealer network is established that covers most of the USA and Canada and a good share of Latin America. The local dealers stock parts and offer prompt service for the customer and hammer.
