Atlas Copco Construction Tools Medium-Duty Hydraulic Breaker Line

Staff | September 28, 2010

Designed with fewer moving parts for optimal reliability, the MB 1500 hydraulic breaker attachment from Atlas Copco Construction Tools LLC is ideal for trenching, road work, demolition and secondary rock breaking.

The unit offers exceptional breaking performance through the combination of high single blow energy and an impressive impact frequency of up to 640 blows-per-minute. Additionally, the breaker was engineered with fewer components for reduced maintenance and longer service life.

At a service weight of 3,310 pounds, the attachment is suitable for carriers in the 17 to 29 metric ton weight class. The breaker accepts hydraulic input flow of 32 to 41 gallons-per-minute at operating pressures of 2,320 to 2,610 psi.

The MB 1500 includes AutoControl, a monitoring system that allows the breaker to adapt its frequency and power output to match operating conditions. Start-up and shut-off behavior can be adjusted with StartSelect and the VibroSilenced damping system helps to alleviate excess noise and vibration. ContiLube II, an automatic lubrication system is mounted directly on the breaker and the optional DustProtector II system reduces maintenance concerns by helping to prevent dust penetration.

Using a working tool with a diameter of 5.3 inches, tool options for the breaker include the moil point for multi-purpose use, the flat chisel for rock breaking and demolition, and the blunt tool for recycling concrete, breaking rock, and reducing oversized material.
