Chicago Pneumatic hydraulic excavator attachments have joined the Epiroc product lineup. The Epiroc RX breakers, RC compactors, and CG contractor grapples will be supported from Epiroc’s dedicated hydraulic attachments organization.
Epiroc was spun off of the Mining and Rock Excavation Technique business area and the Hydraulic Attachment Tools division of Atlas Copco. It now offers all the hydraulic attachments previously marketed under the brand names of Atlas Copco and Chicago Pneumatic.
The former Chicago Pneumatic hydraulic attachments that Epiroc has added include:
- 14 RX breakers for applications including demolition, landscaping, building renovation, road construction, rock excavation and quarrying;
- six RC compactors for effectively compacting soil in trenching, ground leveling, embankment construction, driving in and pulling out posts, sheet piling and other formworks;
- and 18 CG grapples designed for demolition, rip-rap, construction-and-demolition sort, scrap and waste handling.
All the attachments will be backed by a dedicated group of Epiroc manufacturer representative agencies and the new Epiroc Hydraulic Attachment Competency Center in Independence, Ohio. The facility combines a customer center, repair shop and configuration center, and parts and supplies warehouse with a team focused solely on hydraulic attachments.
“The biggest change customers will experience is more support,” said Matt Cadnum, Epiroc Vice President – Hydraulic Attachment Tools, U.S. and Canada. “The R&D is the same, and so are the manufacturing facilities. But as Epiroc we’re able to offer the support of a group completely dedicated to increasing customer productivity with hydraulic attachments.”
