The Vulcan 08 was an upgrade from the venerable #0, increasing the ram weight from 7,500 lbs. to 8,000 lbs. The 08 experienced the upgrades of the other Warrington-Vulcan hammers, including cables and the Vari-Cycle, as shown above. (The cables shown above used the tapered lower fittings and are to the head; later Vulcan 08 hammers have button-type lower fittings and the cables run to just above the steam chest.)
Other configurations of the 08 can be seen below.
Specifications are shown below.
