With an operating weight of 920 kg, the new CC 950 fits onto carriers between 9 and 16 tons. “There is much that changes in this excavator class,” states Wolfgang Hohn, Product Line Manager for Silent Demolition Tools. “We are seeing a clear trend towards increasingly more versatile carriers which are ready equipped with couplers for a wide range of different attachments. "
The serial-production hydraulic rotation device ensures continuous 360º rotation, thus allowing attachments to be placed in position quickly and easily.
55 tons of crushing force are a further argument in the CC 950’s favour. “The combination of low weight with optimum crushing force is important in terms of cost-effective usage. If I can use a smaller crusher and, consequently, a smaller excavator for a specific task, then I save on investment and operating costs."
This also applies to the wear part concept: the attachment cutting blades can be rotated, so replacing them on the construction site is possible without much time and effort.
The CC 950 can be used for light demolition work, such as eliminating masonry and lightly reinforced concrete structures and particularly for interior renovation and gutting.
The CC 950 joins the CC 650, launched at Bauma 2011 specially for the compact excavator class, as an addition to Atlas Copco‘s Light Combi Cutter line.
