Atlas Copco launches new generation of vibro-reduced handheld hydraulic breakers

2010 Jan 20

The new generation of Atlas Copco handheld hydraulic breakers consists of four models with improved vibration characteristics. “On the spring-mounted handles we have improved the vibration characteristics by suspending the heavy weight handle in a dampened pivot pin, decreasing the vibration emissions,” explains Jan Byrresen, Product Line Manager Handheld Hydraulic Products.

We transferred this solution from our successful range of pneumatic breakers and achieved hereby higher operator comfort also on our hydraulic line of handheld breakers” Byrresen adds. “Very often vibro-reduction is achieved by reducing performance. Atlas Copco breakers stay at the same high performance level but reduce vibrations significantly.”

Epiroc operated under the trademark “Atlas Copco” prior to January 1, 2018.
