Footvalve vs no footvalve

We offer DTH drill hammers with support for bits with and without footvalves, depending on the application at hand and customer requirements. Hammers that support bits with footvalves are designed to accommodate this insert. All hammers with an MQ and MC designation only support drill bits without a footvalve. Mincon hammers are available with support for most major third-party shanks, as well as Mincon’s own MC-style shank which does not have a footvalve.

We know hammers.
