Atlas Copco's HB4100 is said to provide better performance and higher efficiency than its
predecessor while weighing less. With a service weight of 9,039 pounds, and designed
for carriers in the 88,185- to 154,324-pound
weight class, the manufacturer says it is as
powerful as heavier breakers and features
double-digit increases in power and efficiency.
The lighter weight also allows for a smaller
excavator to be used, saving both capital and

Surestrike hammers are said to be the most productive and economical
solution for oversize rock breaking. With models ranging from 10,000
foot-pounds to 75,000 foot-pounds, they can easily break materials
including limestone, basalt, granite, traprock, iron ore, slag, and more.
The high single-blow impact energy, coupled with low maintenance and
low wear part costs, helps to ensure productivity and profitability for
quarry owners and operators.

Designed for low noise
FRD Furukawa's Qt line of hydraulic breakers is designed for environments
that demand a reduced noise level. The breakers are encased with a onepiece enclosure to protect critical components. A higher back head pressure
and larger piston diameter create a 20-percent increase in impact energy
over previous models, while a patented dust intake prevention system
prevents dust from entering the front head during piston upstroke to improve
the life of the piston.
