Gauge, a provider of cloud-based fleet tracking and asset management solutions for the heavy construction, government, and fire and water restoration industries, has announced the launch of its JackHammer series GPS tracking products.

Designed and built in the U.S., Gauge’s JackHammer Series products are backed by battery, shock, and vibration guarentees. 

“Originally the project was codenamed 'jack hammer' because our R&D included testing on pile driving attachments, tree grinders, and of course jack hammer attachments. The name stuck and what has come out of it are rugged, long-lasting products that perform in the most extreme situations,” said Chris Junker, chief executive officer of Gauge. “Our engineers have tested JackHammer for quality, durability, and performance to ensure the longevity of these products, no matter the environment.”

JackHammer specifications include: IP69K environmental rating, -40 to +85c operating range, and LTE Cat-M1 cellular module.

  • JH-BP2 - Intended for non-powered assets like trailers, storage containers, or roll off boxes. This product includes a 17-year battery based on one message a day.
  • JH-BP3 - Intended for implements and attachments such as buckets, jackhammers, pile drivers, and more. It includes a 4-year battery and an optional weld on steel guard.
