Utility tools: HammerHead has introduced four new tools to its pneumatic piercing line. The new models come in two sizes, 4-inch and 5.125-inch. Both sizes are available in a Catamount reciprocating head model or a fixed, non-reciprocating head model. The new tools are ideal for any underground installation that requires minimal disruption to landscapes, buildings or traffic flow.

Each new pneumatic piercing tool comes with the Power Port® Reverse feature. The patented quarter-turn reverse design pneumatically locks into forward or reverse preventing accidental direction change during the bore. The patented Debris Free Tailcone was also incorporated to eliminate the introduction of debris into the tool body increasing overall production and tool life.

“With the release of these four models, HammerHead has a complete line of quarter-turn reverse piercing tools with sizes ranging from 2 inches to 5.125 inches,” said Will LaBlanc, HammerHead national sales and product manager.
The new Catamount piercing tools, along with the entire Catamount line, are designed for tough working conditions in a wide range of soil conditions. Engineered without mechanical springs, contractors enjoy more productivity with lower cost of replacement parts. They are also easy to service in the field due to HammerHead’s original tailbolt design. An industry-leading two-year warranty offers peace of mind.

Additional Catamount features include exclusive Smart Head Technology to reduce tool swim and increase performance, a redesigned body housing providing better durability and tool life, and HammerHead’s original Clamped Rear Anvil that provides 200 percent more clamp load, the most secure assembly available. Composite wear rings also eliminate metal-to-metal contact, decreasing wear and sustaining performance levels. Made of a specially designed composite, these rings offer a low coefficient of friction and have a higher abrasion resistance. The Catamount piercing tools provide contractors with a single tool for a variety of ground conditions.
