Caterpillar added three new models to the E Series Hammer line – H140Es, H160Es and H180Es – for use on medium and large excavators. Cat E Series Hammers feature a rugged design for extended durability and solid reliability, and features such as automatic shut-off, silencing and vibration buffering make them easy on the operator. The E Series Hammers are designed to be field serviceable with common hand tools to keep them operating at peak performance.
Cat hammers are wholly designed, engineered and manufactured by Caterpillar and are an optimum match to Cat carriers. The three new hammers match up with Cat excavators ranging from the 324E to the 374D L. Mounting brackets are available for Cat quick couplers. The energy classes of the H140Es, H160Es and H18Es are 6,000 ft.-lb. (8,135 J), 8,500 ft.-lb. (11,525 J) and 12,000 ft.-lb. (16,270 J), respectively.
