The 5110 was the last new model that Vulcan “produced” and was the first beneficiary of Vulcan’s acquisition of Raymond technology in the early 1990’s. The one and only 5110 came into being by a conversion of a 560 owned by Global Movible Offshore. This resulted in a hammer that was considerably lighter than the 5100 with slightly larger energy. The conversion was done by changing the ram, columns and a few other small parts.
