An important reminder when getting ready to use your hydraulic hammer:

Check your bolt torques as per manufacturer instructions. This will help prevent damaged side plates and premature failure of bolts. Tie rods that are allowed to loosen up will cause breaker body seals to blow out and possible damage to piston and cylinder.  On average, your bolts should be re-torqued every 100 hours of use.
