This is a typically sized excavator that can be seen at construction sites across the world. It is an extremely versatile machine and can be used for many tasks including digging, loading, or in this case jack hammering. This particular attachment at the end of the boom is a jack hammer that is powered through the unit’s hydraulic system. The jack hammer can break through concrete with relative ease and transform large structural components into smaller manageable pieces for the purpose of material handling during a demolition operation.
