70 | www.cedmag.com | Construction Equipment Distribution | December 2014 New & Improved Atlas Copco Reveals Streamlined Hydraulic Breaker Attachment Line Please visit us in CONDEX Booth 711 Atlas Copco's ES Range of hydraulic breaker attachments is an economical and user- friendly option for general construction projects and light demolition. According to the company, the compact, ES hydraulic breakers are easy to maneuver into tight spaces and provide good visibility, which speed up day-to-day construc- tion, landscaping and renovation jobs. The new ES Range includes three models, the ES 60, ES 70 and ES 80. These models are remarkably narrow to promote good visibility and handling on worksites. The slim design also results in faster cleanup. For example, operators can cut narrow and precise trenches for plumbing installation applications without removing excess soil to accommodate the breaker's size. The ES breakers feature Atlas Copco's exclusive, solid body construction that combines percus- sion and mounting components in one uniform structure. This eliminates the need for external fasteners, which allows rental center mechan- ics to quickly and easily replace worn bushings and seals, resulting in fast turnaround times for repairs and maintenance. A central lubrica- tion point provides quick and easy access for greasing the breaker. The breakers also feature full-length floating bushings to ensure grease fully coats bushings and tool steel to minimize wear. The breakers enhance productivity with a nitrogen-gas assist system that works with the units' hydraulic oil to accelerate the breakers' pistons and achieve impact rates as high as 1,300 beats per minute. The three ES breakers attach to a wide range of carriers in weight classes that range from nearly 6,400 to over 26,000 pounds. Operators can use the breakers in conjunction with Atlas Copco's tool steel, such as a moil point, chisel or blunt, to break through a variety of materials.
