PANDA DCP Options – Automatic Hammers and Mechanical Rod Extractor

Automatic Hammer – For deep or repetitive tests, two automatic hammers are available as an alternative to using the 1.7kg hammer. The Automatic Hammers can also be operated by one person.

Option 1: 10kg drop weight with fixed drop height powered by small 240V electric generator.
