1 Make sure that the storage area is dry.
2 Remove the tool.
3 Drain the gas from the low pressure accumulator using the gas charging kit, leave the charging valve open.
4 Liberally cost the lower end of the piston, the tool(s) and the bushings with grease.
5 Remove the caps from the capped hoses or connect a mating QRC, if QRCs are installed. Be prepare to collect any oil that is spilled.

9 Re-install the plug.
Breaking – Do’s and Don’ts
To ensure long life the JCB LARGE HYDRAULIC BREAKER requires correct set up and size the hammer matched for the job. “If a small breaker is used on a job that requires a much larger breaker, its life will be shortened. by forcing the breaker to do more than it was designed to do, “A large breaker can do a smaller job or break smaller material however the operator may not have the control.” The hydraulic systems must also be set to match the particular hammer used. Hammers are designed to run within a defined range of hydraulic pressures and flows.
Operating out side these limits will either shorten its life or result in poor performance
Point to Remember
– On first installation – commission
– Lubricate tool and tool retainer pins before installation.Use hammer grease not universal greaseMonitor grease mark on tool.Monitor grease usage.Manual greasing with tool fully pushed in.When removing ensure ports are capped.Reset relief valve if a higher pressure attachment is installed.Change carrier machine oil twice as regular.Change hammer return filter regularyStand clear of the tool when gas chargingEnsure the return line is open when gas charging. Always use a gas charging kit with a regulator suitable for the job. On double acting machines understand the action of both ARV’s Get trained.
