Atlas Copco EC Small-Range Breakers for Limited-Access Environments

May 16, 2015

Essential Case-Mounted (EC) range of hydraulic breaker attachments has expanded with the addition of five Small Range breakers to the lineup.

The breakers are small enough, Atlas Copco says, to fit in limited-access work environments, such as pipe trenches. The new breakers (EC 40 T, EC 50 T, EC 60 T, EC 70 T and EC 80 T) fit 1- to 12-ton carriers and feature the company’s box-style mounting systems, which it says eliminate the need for removing external fasteners to access components, such as wear bushings and seals, for maintenance. The breakers have service weights as low as 209 pounds and generate impact rates as high as 1,600 bpm to deliver effective impact energy to the breaking surface.
