|Lifting drill rig percussion hammers
|A tool has been fabricated to combat the risks associated with lifting heavy percussion hammers for drill rigs. The hammer is left on the ground with the plant tracked up and the mast positioned above the hammer. The adaptors are attached to the rotation motor tube adaptor and hammer top, the chain is then connected to the rotation motor lift eye and passed through the dust collector pot and guide rings and finally attached to the top of the adaptor hammer adaptor lifting eye. The operator then returns to the cab so there is now no one in the lift area. The hammer can then be lifted remotely and safely.
