Kinshofer Kfx SeriesKinshofer will display its KFX-Series hydraulic breaker attachments at its ConExpo 2020 booth, located at F-2732 in the Festival Grounds.

The breaker line was part of the company’s October announcement that it had acquired the Italy-based Hammer, a manufacturer of demolition, excavation, recycling and material handling attachments.

The 14 models in the KFX-Series offer a wide range of weight and power options. The smallest model in the series, the KFX 14 — designed for excavators weighing 8 to 15 tons — produces 1,475 foot-pounds and 600-900 blows per minute. At the upper end of the series, the KFX 200 — for 100- to 200-ton machines — produces 25,815 foot-pounds and 150-250 blows per minute.

The KFX 20 to 200 also feature two adjusting valves, allowing operators to adjust the number of blows per minute and select operating pressures from 160 to 200 bar. Choosing a longer piston stroke will result in slower operation and more energy per single blow, designed for when the material is  hard and capacity is a secondary concern. A shorter piston stroke results in less single-blow energy but faster operation, better for softer material and greater capacity per hour.
