Epiroc VC 2000 Drum Cutter

May 16, 2022

With its V-shaped design, the VC 2000 drum cutter from Epiroc is engineered for trenching and quarrying.

The design enables a cut with a flat base, and no material is left untouched between the drums. Where a regular drum cutter must move side to side to create an even trench, an approach that causes extra wear on the carrier arm, the VC 2000 can reach the same result by just going straight, the company says. It basically works like a bucket, which makes it easier to use, friendlier for the carrier, and a lot less energy- and time-consuming. It features robust spur gears, adoptable high torque gear motor, and the QuickSnap retaining system for fast and easy pick changing. It comes with the Pro bracket that leads all hydraulic hoses through the center of the extension arm and out of harm’s way, as standard. Mechanical and hydraulic rotatable brackets are also available as well as dust-preventing water spraying system.
