A new collective noun?

I found myself musing on waking this morning, somewhat earlier than intended, on the appropriate collective noun for a collection of jackhammers: a "rattle of", or a "pound of" perhaps?

Working nights has its advantages, but learning just how often they dig up the roads is not among them.
