Recoilless Hammers

Powerful and recoilless, THUNDERBOLT recoilless hammers represent the fastest and safest method ever devised for removing worn mill liners and liner bolts.

THUNDERBOLT recoilless hammers are available in the following energy ratings and cycle rates:

  • THUNDERBOLT 1500 – one 1,500J blow, every second
    (10x harder than a man, once per second)
  • THUNDERBOLT 750 – two 750J blows, every second
    (5x harder than a man, twice per second)
  • THUNDERBOLT 450 – one 450J blow, every second
    (3x harder than a man, once per second)
  • THUNDERBOLT 250 - one 250J blow, every second
    (1.5x harder than a man, once per second).

All THUNDERBOLTs deliver high energy, high momentum recoilless blows, far superior to low energy or low momentum alternatives such as sledge hammers or pneumatic 'breaker' hammers.
