The 34-inch rammer, he continued, is built to the same rugged standards that provide the reliable, productive performance for which HammerHead tools are known, including the patented rear anvil that provides up to 200 percent more clamp load than other models, a one-piece striker with wear rings that eliminates metal-to-metal contact, taper locking pushing collets that securely lock the tool nose to casing and decrease set-up and tear-down time, and lifters on larger collet sizes to facilitate on-site moving, loading and unloading.
Chaired by Institute for Sustainable Communications Senior Research Fellow Don Carli, the event will minimize its own carbon footprint by providing an expo floor with ready-to-use, pre-manufactured, recyclable booths, eliminating shipping, drayage, set-up and tear-down time and expense.
