Celebrating 40 years of the Rammer.

Forty years young

Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology commemorated the 40th anniversary of the Rammer by updating the range of the hydraulic hammer with two new extreme duty breaker booms.

The Rammer brand of hydraulic hammers, part of the Business Unit Breakers, celebrates its 40th birthday this year. Several events marked the anniversary of this enduring brand, including one at the breaker factory to commemorate delivery of the 3,000th pedestal-mounted boom.

In addition to this, Rammer now has an updated range with two new extreme duty breaker booms, making it easier for customers to find the right breaker boom for their needs. These new booms have a higher raking capability, which reduces wear and tear on parts, as well as wider coverage and service access, which increases production rates whilst reducing operating costs. The Rammer brand originated in 1978 in Finland, and it has been a part of Sandvik since 1998. The product line has seen a number of significant developments over the years, many of which have become established as industry standards, including constant blow energy, idle blow protection and automatic lubrication.
