Atlas Copco

The secret is in the solid body, a one-piece casting that eliminates the fronthead, backhead and sidebolts found on traditional breakers. By reducing the number of parts in the unit, the designers aimed to improve reliability and make the new breakers, the TEX P60 and TEX P90. The breakers also feature a new smooth-start trigger that allows the operator to have full control over the initial stage of the breaking process. Additional features include a swivel coupling that rotates even when the air pressure is on and an easily accessible built-in oiler.
