Bobcat's new line of hydraulic breaker attachments is designed for concrete and general demolition work. The new hydraulic breaker attachments have an entirely new internal design with fewer moving parts and no external tie rods, thus reducing overall service time. Another advancement is the auto power feature, which is an automatic pressure regulator that ensures maximum performance of the breaker, regardless of tool carrier hydraulic flow variations or changes in outdoor temperature. The auto power feature also limits excessive pressure at the time of startup, which protects the energy chamber diaphragm, allowing for longer service life.
