The Sullair MPB-90 AFS paving breaker is ergonomically designed with an anti-vibration handle that reduces vibration up to 60 percent to minimize operator fatigue. Vibration is reduced by crossed handles that swivel on pins located on either side of the breaker head. Helical springs prevent contact between the handles and the breaker body, allowing the springs to act as isolators. A silent muffler reduces noise levels by 6 dBA, or 50 percent, and prevents the tool from freezing.
