Vulcan 65C and 65CA Hammers: Specifications and Information
The 65C is the counterpart to the Warrington-Vulcan 06 hammer. Upsizing single-acting hammers is a fairly straightforward process as long as the frame is capable of withstanding the load. Doing the same thing with differential-acting hammers such as the 50C is an entirely different matter, as the 65C shows.
Specifications are on the general arrangement above and are also shown below.
Vulcan eventually addressed these issues with the 65CA; the ad for it from Onshore Tip 61 is shown below.
