Atlas Copco DP 2800 hydraulic demolition pulverizer attachmentThe DP 2800 hydraulic demolition pulverizer attachment, with 99 tons of crushing force at the jaw tip, has a service weight of 6,173 pounds and is suitable for carriers in the 24- to 38-ton weight class. Operating at a maximum pressure of 5,076 psi and accepting maximum hydraulic flow of 79 gpm, the DP 2800 utilizes a straight-jaw design that allows the jaws to open to a width of 35 inches. This wider opening, says Atlas Copco, enables the unit to handle larger pieces of debris, making it suitable for the primary demolition of light- to medium-reinforced concrete structures, secondary reduction and material separation. The unit's replaceable blades effectively cut rebar as the tool penetrates through concrete. The blades are reversible to provide longer service life.
