WORLD'S LARGEST RAMMER
The revolutionary Catamount line of piercing tools from HammerHead® offers the industry a reciprocating head tool that is easy to start, regardless of air pressure level, and is the first pneumatic piercing tool head effective in both hard and soft soil conditions. The new Catamount tool line is currently available in 2.5" (64 mm), 3" (76 mm) 3.50 (89 mm) and 4.38" (111 mm) diameter tools.
Industry Leading 2 Year Warranty
Protect your investment with two year limited warranty protection on HammerHead Mole piercing tools compared to just 90 days with the leading competitor.
Smart Head Technology
HammerHead designed the Catamount so the head is driven by air that resets the head, eliminating the need for mechanical springs, which are a common source of failure in trenchless tool designs. This design allows for a faster and easier start by eliminating the need to overcome recoil found in competitive models. The Catamount design takes full advantage of reciprocating head technology by increasing production rates in all soil types and also reduces tool swim at any operating pressure.
Power Port® Reverse
This patented quarter-turn reverse feature pneumatically locks the tool into forward or reverse gear, preventing accidental direction change during the bore. The valve whip is designed to be flexible, preventing tool binding if a bore collapse occurs.
Patented Debris Free Tailcone
Designed to eliminate the introduction of debris into the tool body, increasing overall production and tool life.
The Catamount design features a one-piece body made of heat-treated alloy steel versus welded or tubular construction. This design allows HammerHead to use a much heavier striker, increasing overall impact force. The one-piece body also provides better durability and tool life.
Striker Wear Rings
Wear rings eliminate metal to metal contact decreasing wear and offering a sustained level of performance. Made of a specially designed composite, these rings offer a very low coefficient of friction and have a higher abrasion resistance compared to Teflon® rings used in competitive tools.
Original Clamped Rear Anvil
Don't settle for imitations. This original and field tested design provides for fast and easy field maintenance, the hallmark of the entire HammerHead Mole piercing tool line. Provides 200% more clamp load and is the most secure and proven assembly available.
