Atlas Copco HB 4100 Heavy Breaker
June 19, 2012

 Atlas Copco’s HB 4100, provides better performance and higher efficiency than the preceding model and weighs less. Designed for carriers in the 40 to 70t weight class, it has a service weight of 4,100 kg but is as powerful as other, much heavier breakers. Reduced weight and better performance means that similar results can be achieved with a smaller hydraulic breaker. A lighter breaker also means that a smaller excavator can be used, saving both investment and operating costs. A reduction in the total cost of ownership is attained by conserving resources such as man hours and fuel. The new breaker’s guide system has also been improved so that it is more stable and resilient. The HB 4100 hydraulic breaker is suitable for secondary and primary rock breaking in quarries, demolition of concrete, steel and pavement, trenching, dredging, tunneling and foundation work.
