Atlas Copco introduces a new generation of handheld hydraulic breakers with improved vibration characteristics in its 40- to 90-pound class of breakers. Atlas Copco engineers made these improvements by suspending the heavy spring-mounted handles in a dampened pivot pin, thereby decreasing vibration emissions.
“By incorporating an already successful and highly efficient vibration dampening handles from our line of TEX PE pneumatic breakers, we have achieved higher operator comfort on our hydraulic line of handheld breakers as well,” said Eudes Defoe, product manager handheld equipment. “Often vibro-reduction is achieved by reducing performance. Atlas Copco breakers maintain the same high performance level, but reduce vibrations significantly.”
Atlas Copco handheld hydraulic breakers were developed for concrete, asphalt and frozen ground applications, as well as for trenching, tie-tamping, spike driving and general demolition jobs.
