Kennards Hire has added a new range of electric jackhammers to their hire equipment range.
The new heavy electric breaker with increased hammering power has been chosen as the standard at Kennards Hire, and will become available from all hire centres as older models are retired.
Kennards’ electric breakers offer 68 joules of hammering impact energy with minimal vibration, and can break up to six tonnes of concrete per hour.
Greg Carter, site supervisor for Garner’s Plumbing hired one of the breakers from Kennards Hire Drummoyne for work at the Gladesville Bridge Marina to break up 240mm thick concrete, prior to laying a new sewer line for a slipway upgrade.
Looking for equipment with ‘a bit more beef’, he selected the new electric breaker for the job. His workers now find the breaker more effective and quicker than the other electric hammers used earlier.
Kennards Hire also offers air breakers, hydraulic powered breakers and smaller electric models.
Hydraulic powered hammers offer impact equivalent to a 33kg pneumatic model, while the power pack is more manageable than an air compressor.
Kennards operates 124 equipment hire centres around Australia, including a new outlet in Dubbo in regional NSW and a new specialist Kennards Concrete Care branch at Moorebank in south-western Sydney.
