With their stand-alone design, the breakers are easy to operate and represent a powerful alternative to the premium breaker range for the Chinese construction market.
Torsten Ahr, Marketing Manager for Atlas Copco’s Hydraulic Attachments: “China is the only construction market in the world which is dominated by the basic breaker segment, and our new C-Series is the perfect complement to our existing product portfolio in this market. In the C-Series a triangular case design has been adopted, and the machines offer impressive improvements in performance and efficiency in the basic breaker segment. They will enable us to meet the specific needs of the Chinese market.”
The basic breakers in the C-Series are characterized by vibration dampening and a slim, compact box design. Like other Atlas Copco hydraulic breakers, they utilize energy recovery to optimize percussion performance by increasing the blow frequency. Noise levels are minimized by a noise-reduction system, which also reduces vibration and protects the carrier.
Thierry Leder, General Manager, Atlas Copco Construction Technique, Greater China: “The C-Series hydraulic breaker will not replace the premium light, medium and heavy hydraulic breakers that Atlas Copco is well known for. The C-Series is a new range of easy to operate, highly durable breakers which, together with the premium range, will provide the optimal match for the Chinese construction market!”
Atlas Copco C-Series breakers are designed for gardening and landscaping, foundation works, trenching, bench, road and ramp leveling, secondary rock breaking, and demolition of masonry and concrete structures.
