The dealer is working on my finance not much else I can do except for wait.


Bojangles1432 keep lots of grease in the pins if your going to be using the hammer lots, you can't grease enough it helps the pins in the boom from being rattled out.

No fooling, grease the main bucket pin every 3 hours, and same with the hammer, my brother's 305 is sloppy, and it's barely 300 hours old.
Consider this a severe warning!!!

A hammer ages a machine 10 years in no time, personally I wouldn't put a hammer on a new machine find a beat up machine with already loosey goosey boom pins.

Also part of the regular maintenance is look for cracks in the boom. Also your hard piping takes a schit kicking make sure all the insulators are in good shape everything is held down solid.
