    German power hammer?


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Hi Guy's
    A customer of my company is selling a 60kg. Kuma power hammer.
    I will be getting the specifics in a week. Anybody know about this hammer.
    I am unsure about the spelling but it is from Germany.
    Thanks

    Are you sure it's not a Kuhn?

    There's plenty of room for all of God's creatures - right next to the mashed potatoes.

    Thanks Karl,
    Right now any things possible. When I googled Kuma I didn't get anywhere.
    What I do know is:
    German made.
    pneumatic on board system.
    60kg.
    20 yrs old
    Green paint.
    and I will be getting a E-mail once he's home.

    Sounds like a kuhn to me.
    I'm a blacksmith. when I wake up in the morning I'm blacksmith, when I go to work I'm a blacksmith, when I come home and eat dinner I'm a blacksmith, when I go to sleep, I'm a blacksmith.

    99.99% odds it is a Kuhn. If so they are great hammers and hammer weight will be 110 lb. I have a Sahinler and basically they are the same and I LUV my hammer.

    That's probably a 50 kg Kuhn.

    The SMALL 34kg Kuhn would cost you in excess of $15,000 if you tried to buy it in the US today. So if the price is right, buy that sucker, be is a 50kg or a 60kg. You are talking about a hammer that would probably cost $20-25K new!! Their operating system is apparently a pretty good one because the Turkish factories that make Sahinler and Say Mak hammers are using the same setup from what I have been told.

    Unless the prices have changed, Ozark is actually charging less for the 50kg Say Mak that Pieh is getting for the similar Sahinler. The price on the web site is like $8750. I think that you can get the 60kg Say Mak for like $10.5K
