Standing 14 feet high, Atlas Copco’s HB 10000 hydraulic breaker is the most powerful unit in its line. It weighs 10 metric tons, and delivers about 12,000 ft.-lbs. at the tip of the tool—50 percent more impact energy than the company’s HB 7000. It fits on excavators in the 85- to 140-metric-ton class. Featuring PowerAdapt, AutoControl and other Atlas Copco technology, the breaker is designed for primary rock breaking in quarries and is a viable alternative to certain drilling-and-blasting applications.
