Atlas Copco LH 22/LH 23 E Hydraulic Handheld Breaker

Staff | September 28, 2010

Atlas Copco Construction Tools LLC offers a complete line of hydraulic handheld breakers, providing an ideal solution for jobs in concrete, asphalt, frozen soil, mortar and brickwork.

The line includes the 46 pound LH 22. Able to produce 62.7 foot-pounds of blow energy at an average impact rate of 1,740 blows-per-minute, the breaker has a slim design that provides a clear view for the operator.

The LH 22 is equipped with basic vibration dampening. A more ergonomically advanced version, the LH 23 E, features a patented four-spring E-handle (ergonomic) that further reduces vibration levels, improves the breaker's durability and decreases operator fatigue. The LH 23 E produces the same results as the standard LH 22 model, but reduces vibrations by up to 71 percent.

The LH 22/23 E can operate with a hydraulic oil flow of 5.3 or 7.9 gallons per minute. Optimum operation is achieved when powered by a carrier with hydraulic capabilities or by one of a wide range of Atlas Copco hydraulic power packs. These packs feature a power-on-demand system that automatically decreases the pack's engine speed when the tool is disengaged, reducing fuel consumption and extending the life of the power pack. Equipped with wheels and handles, a power pack can be easily moved around a job site to increase the breaker's flexibility. The breaker and power pack are small enough to transport by pickup truck and store on a shelf when not in use.

The breaker comes standard with a 1.3-foot hydraulic twin hose, which is complete with screw couplings for connection to the breaker and flat-face quick-release couplings for connection to the power pack hose or to the twin extension hose. An optional oil flow divider and extension hoses are available for running the breaker off hydraulic-powered carriers.
