Product Focus: Hammers and breakers

Streamlined design allows for operation in tight quarters
John Deere’s Worksite Pro line of attachments for skid steers, compact track loaders and compact excavators now includes two new hydraulic breakers. The breakers feature a one-piece design with no side bolts and a narrow shape for crowded jobsites. A low-pressure design cushions operators from recoil and minimal seals and moving parts simplify maintenance.

Breaker’s smart features improve efficiency
Perform demolition, tunnel construction, trenching and foundation work with Atlas Copco’s MB 1200 hydraulic breaker attachment. Designed for use with 15-to-26-metric ton excavators, the MB 1200 features an impact frequency of 680 blows per minute and a 37-gallon-per-minute maximum hydraulic flow at 2,610 psi. The breaker fires the first stroke at half power to create a pilot notch, centering the tool and preventing slippage. Automatically adjusting power output to match the material density, the MB 100 reduces excess shock on the breaker and carrier.

Breaker’s new features increase torque
Break at a rate of 300 to 480 blows per minute with Allied Construction Products’ Model G 88 G-Series for excavators. Designed for 60,000-to-88,000-pound excavators, the G-Series breaks concrete structures, building foundations and trench rock. New tie bolts have a thinner shaft diameter for increased torque and a fixed blow energy feature guarantees all blows are at full power.

Custom made breaker fits variety of excavators
Handle tough rock and demolition applications with Okada America’s Top300, a 6,500-pound hydraulic breaker that fits 31-to-47-metric ton excavators. The breaker features an internal grease passage for easy interface with the Okada Auto Lube System. The Top300’s anti-vibration hose system and long stroke piston design ensures hard hits. All Okada breakers are custom made for easy mounting on any carrier.

Hammer’s vibrosilencing reduces carrier, operator vibration
The Blue Diamond line of hydraulic hammers from Atco Equipment comes in a range of sizes to fit carrier machines from skid steers to large excavators. A one-piece casing ensures reliability. The Blue Diamond line has a tool diameter range from 1.60 to 6.30 and features vibro-silencing technology for reduced vibration to the carrier machine and the operator.

Breaker’s hitting power packs a punch
Stanley Hydraulic Tools’ newest breaker, the MB 10, mounts on backhoe loaders and excavators weighing between 14,000 and 26,000 pounds. The MB 10, at 1,000 foot-pounds, works efficiently within a 20- to 30-gallon-per-minute flow range. A direct-acting nitrogen chamber operates at low pressure for reliability and the boxed housing design offers quiet operation and enhances vibration dampening.

Break rock in a single blow with Surestrike hammer
Break large material easily with Surestrike’s hammer for excavators and loaders. Generating up to 75,000-foot-pounds of energy in a single blow, the Surestrike reduces carrier damage, minimizes wear and provides a cubical product for crusher feed and rip rap, all without the use of high-frequency vibration.

Add more breaking power with Series II breaker line
Huskie’s Hydraulic Series II breaker line includes models with impact energies from 200 foot-pounds to 1,200 foot-pounds and a high power-to-weight ratio. Huskie has reduced the number of parts in all models, improving serviceability for users.

Breaker attachment fits variety of compact machines
Break more material faster than with previous models with Bobcat’s HB1180, a hydraulic breaker attachment for skid-steer loaders, compact track loaders, all-wheel steer loaders and compact excavators. The HB1180’s internal design has fewer moving parts to reduce overall service time and mounts easily with the Bob-Tach or X-Change mounting systems. An auto power feature regulates pressure regardless of tool carrier hydraulic flow variations or changes in outdoor temperature.

New breaker designed for large excavators
Increase performance with Indeco’s HP 16000 breaker, the largest model in the High Performance line. With a 17,200-pound operating weight and 16,000 foot-pounds of energy, the HP 16000 fits excavators weighing 75 tons and up. The breaker has an 86-to-111-gallons-per-minute hydraulic flow and provides up to 3,400 psi. The HP 16000’s intelligent variable speed and power system automatically senses the material’s hardness and adjusts the force per blow. A slim design improves maneuverability.

Heavy-duty features increase hammer’s durability
Caterpillar’s H180D S hydraulic hammer fits Cat 345C and 365C hydraulic excavators and offers a 15 percent increase in productivity compared to the previous model. The H180D S features an auto-shutoff, a heavy-duty suspension system and an enhanced wear plate design. The hammer’s settings are preprogrammed in Cat excavator tool control systems for easy setup. Sealed accumulators eliminate frequent recharging.

Break wide range of materials with compact utility loader attachment
Break concrete, asphalt, rock or brick to a depth of 11 inches with Toro’s hydraulic breaker attachment, for use with Dingo compact utility loaders. The breaker has 175 foot-pounds of force, delivers 1,200 blows per minute and features a multi-position mounting head for breaking materials in horizontal or vertical positions. Toro’s quick-attach system with two locking pins enables quick attachment.

Increase operator comfort with vibra-silenced hammers
Work in narrow trenches with the Terex TXH Series, a line of hydraulic hammers for Terex compact excavators and backhoe loaders. The TXH Series has hammers with a range of 251 to 1,033 foot-pounds of energy per blow and 450 to 950 and 550 to 1,100 blows per minute. A polymer suspension pad vibra-silences the TXH Series, reducing operator and carrier machine vibration exposure. A one piece box design eliminates cross bolts.

Breaker’s damper system minimizes carrier shock
Perform demolition work quickly with Construction Attachments’ CAL-4500 breaker, designed for use on compact excavators, skid steers, backhoes and large excavators. The breaker features a damper system to minimize shock to carrier machines and has few internal parts for simple maintenance.
