    Hi Guys
    In the market for a hammer for our Cat 314 zero turn excavator
    This hammer would not be working 40 hours a week. But most of the time be hammering ledge/rock when being used. We want a premium hammer thats well built (top of the line)
    As of now we are considering
    -CAT
    -RAMMER
    -INDECO
    -NPK
    Any feedback from guys that use these hammers would be great!

    We have had a few customers bring us in Tramac hammers and while they seem to be relatively good pieces the Indeco's have been,in our (20 stores) experience, very "set and forget" as in they have virtually no problems. Barring operator failure of course

    I like the Indeco also, very well built, they make all sizes & when a "operator" breaks it they are easy to get parts for. I think you will be very happy with it.

    Great choice, they will last a good while and when a rebuild is needed they are one of the only hammers on the market that are completely re-buildable.
