Atlas Copco Construction Tools
Requiring between 53 and 83 cfm of free air delivery at 90 psi, the TEX PE breakers from Atlas Copco Construction Tools produce between 1,100 and 1,470 bpm. The breakers’ high power-to-weight ratio and low center of gravity allow for easy handling and operator balance, helping to reduce operator fatigue. Ranging in weight from 40 to 93 pounds, six models comprise the line of ergonomic pneumatic breakers. Each model features a hand and arm protection system, which reduces vibrations by up to 75 percent, according to the company.
Wacker introduces a new generation of breakers that produce more power and reduce hand/arm vibration. The BH 24 features a piston and striker with a reconfigured shape that reduces the weight of the unit and increases the velocity to make for a harder hitting breaker. Because of the air percussion system, the striking mechanism directly hits the tool, reducing the amount of vibration that bounces back to the operator. The BH 24 is powered by an EPA-certified Wacker 2-cycle WM 80 engine, which is specifically designed to withstand tough applications of the construction industry. The self-contained BH 24 does not require a generator or compressor, making it suitable for use in hard-to-access areas.

Allied Construction Products introduces the addition of the Model AR 70C to its AR series hydraulic impact hammer product line. The AR 70C is a 538-pound hammer that mounts quickly on a mini excavator. It also adapts to a skid steer with mounting bracket configurations and two-position brackets for increased productivity. The hammer also features steady blow energy for maximum breaking power as well as straight hydraulic hose fittings for reliable and leak-free connections. A wide assortment of demolition and specialty tools are available to match the job.
The D25980K from DeWalt is equipped with metal, automotive-style seals on the ram and piston, which help to prevent dust and debris from entering the unit.

Stanley Hydraulic Tools
Stanley Hydraulic Tools introduces the MB 10 mounted breaker, which features a direct-acting nitrogen chamber operating at low pressure for long-term reliability. The MB 10, at 1,000 foot-pounds, features an increase in hitting power and efficiency over its predecessor, the MB 965, without adding weight. The MB 10 is fully boxed, providing quieter operation and better protection. The unit is also supported by urethane upper, side and lower bumpers for vibration dampening, which reduces vibration back to the base machine. The breaker weighs 1,050 pounds and is designed for use on rubber-tired backhoe loaders and excavators weighing 14,000 to 26,000 pounds.
The H35Ds (pictured) and H45Ds hydraulic hammers from Caterpillar feature enclosed housing to protect the power cell, eliminate side plate bolts and reduce sounds levels. The H45Ds replaces the H45/H45s hammers. It is in the 300-foot-pound class for power and provides 2,300 bpm. The H35Ds is in the 150-foot-pound class and provides 2,900 bpm. The H35Ds has a working weight of 231 pounds and a recommended carrier weight of 2,425 to 5,292 pounds.
The Bobcat HB1180 hydraulic breaker attachment meets the 750 foot-pound impact energy class. The breaker is easy to mount and is approved for use on Bobcat skid-steer loaders, compact-track loaders, all-wheel-steer loaders and compact excavators.

The breaker hammer comes with the new Bosch self-sharpening star-point hex chisel. It also accommodates all standard 1 1/8-inch hex steel and 1 1/8-inch air steel chisels.
Metabo introduces the SBE1010 Plus ½-inch hammer drill for increased productivity in a variety of drilling applications. The hammer drill’s side handle can be rotated 360 degrees and is ergonomically designed to counteract the torque of the tool when drilling into hard materials, giving the operator greater control of the tool to drill straighter, rounder holes. Useful for drilling holes in steel, wood, concrete block, brick and solid concrete, the SBE1010 Plus has a capacity of 3/4 inch in concrete, 5/8 inch in mild steel and 1½ inch in softwood. The hammer drill has an input rating of 1,010 watts and a maximum tightening torque of 248 inch-pounds.
