Atlas Copco: Three new heavy hydraulic breakers with PowerAdapt and optimized power-to-weight ratio

2010 Apr 20

On the occasion of the Bauma 2010 fair Atlas Copco are introducing three new heavy hydraulic breaker models with PowerAdapt and optimized power-to-weight ratio. The HB 2000 with its service weight of 2000 kg offers 10% more power than its predecessor, the HB 200. The new HB 3100 and HB 4700 with a service weight of 3100 and 4700 kg, respectively, deliver 5% and 13% more power than their predecessor models.

In doing so, Atlas Copco sticks to the principle of developing and building attachments offering an improved power-to-weight ratio. The same performance can be achieved with a smaller attachment and carrier unit. Investment and maintenance costs are reduced. More power also means a higher strain against which the attachments are protected by proven and new product features. All three hydraulic breakers are equipped with the PowerAdapt system which shuts down the breaker in case the oil pressure is too high. „This is for example useful when the hydraulic breaker is used on different carrier units,“ Torsten Treger, Product Line Manager Medium & Heavy Breakers explains. „Hydraulic breakers can generally be hydraulically overloaded if the carrier’s oil pressure has the wrong setting. In order to ensure that our customers can make full use of the equipment in terms of efficiency and power, we have equipped the entire range of heavy-duty hydraulic breakers with PowerAdapt.
