FAQs - Rammer Hammers

The following FAQs apply to our Rammer (Sandvik) series of products.  For other categories, please click here.

  1. How do I identify which Rammer hammer I have?
    The model and serial number are printed on a decal on the housing.   The serial number is also stamped on the valve housing.  Contact Allied for further help.

  2. What styles of demoliton tools are offered and which ones are best for me?
    Tools come in various styles and configurations.  When choosing a tool the type of material to be broken must be considered.

  3. Where can I get Parts and Service?
    (See the Distributor map Tab at the top of this page or click here)
  4. How should I grease my hammer, how much grease should I use and what type of lubricant is required?
    Each Rammer (Sandvik) hammer is equipped with lubrication fitting (s).  Lubrications should be manually  injected at 2-hour intervals if an automatic lubricator is not being used or at any time that lubricaant is not present on the shank of the demolition tool.  Allied Chisel Paste is recommended for superior tool lubrication and should be used during the Rammer (Sandvik) lubrication procedure. (See Operators Manual for specific instructions)

  5. Can I operate my hammer underwater?
    All Rammer (Sandvik) hammers are capable of underwater operation.  However an underwater kit is required.

  6. How often do I have to check the accumulator charge?
    Accumulators normally only need to be checked once a year (600 hours), or when the hammer lacks power or when the impact rate slows down.  (Caution! Accumulators can be dangerous and should be check by local Allied / Sandvik (Rammer) dealer or qualified technician)

  7. How important is correct oil flow and pressure?
    To achieve optimal performance from your hammer it is important that the flow and pressures be set to Sandvik (Rammer) specifications.  Your local dealer should set pressures and flow at the time of initial installation.

  8. How should I store the hammer?
    Short Term Storage:  Secure the hammer either vertically or horizontally.  When storing, make sure the hammer is tilted tool end down to prevent water from entering the hammers.
    Long Term Storage:  Secure the hammer in a vertical position, remove the tool and protect the piston end with grease.  Store in a dry enviornment.
