The new RH560 combines the reliability of Sandvik's RH460 with the simplicity of the RH510. The enhanced air cycle and piston design deliver higher striking power, while fewer internal parts provide outstanding reliability, minimising failures and downtime.

In tests in varying rock condition, the new design has been proven to deliver up to a 15 per cent increase in penetration rate, with smoother collaring and straighter blastholes.

Higher power output comes from lower air consumption. The hammer improves reliability and economy through optimized air consumption, increasing power and improving lubrication. This enables the drilling of larger holes at the same speed as a smaller hole with a standard hammer, which Sandvik says delivers further cost savings.
