    Any good equipment repair shop should be able to recharge it the key if what kind of fittings are on it for the nitrogen we just bought a kit to charge very high pressure accumulators on a milling machine and it was not cheep well over $1000 just for it only good thing we can use the gauge and hose with some of our other adapters.

    I have an Esco hammer as well. Mine is a 1500 pound hammer. All you need to recharge it is an adaptor to go from the nitrogen tank to the fill valve on the hammer. Esco stopped making hammers sometime ago. Esco is still in business just not in the hammer business. If you contact Esco they will give the company that is handling the parts for the Esco hammers in circulation. I don't remember who that was. They can also give you the recommended charge amount for the hammer. With that you can charge it yourself or take it to any dealer and they can (with your adaptor for your hammer) fill your breaker. Not a big deal.
