Chicago Pneumatic’s new hydraulic breakerPublished 29/12, 2016 at 16:43
Chicago Pneumatic has launched the RX12 rig-mounted hydraulic breaker for carriers between 9t and 15t and provides 10% increase in output power and a 28% increase in impact energy over its predecessor.
Weighing 625kg and with a tool diameter of 90mm, the RX12 is ideal for a range of light demolition, landscaping, building renovation and road construction applications. It has a mono-block design, with the cylinder and tool holder integrated in one piece. This reduces the total number of parts, and eliminates the need for side bolts. The inclusion of a replaceable cylinder sleeve also cuts repair time and costs.
The breaker’s double tool retainer bars ensure working tool guidance, with a one-piece floating wear bush enabling quick and easy field replacement of the tool. The RX12 has a central lubrication point for manual greasing, but can also be equipped with an automatic lubrication device called CP-Lube.
The RX12 has a breaker box guidance system that dampens noise and vibration levels. It also incorporates gas/oil hybrid technology, an internal control valve, and a power booster mode that reuses wasted recoil energy.
