Atlas Copco gas-fueled breakers

Atlas Copco launched new versions of its Cobra PROe and Cobra TTe gas-powered handheld breakers.

Atlas Copco PROeThe breakers are available with two tool shank sizes, which allow rental centers to achieve high utilization rates and ROI by offering customers versatile equipment. The breakers also have high power-to-weight ratios and optimize operator comfort, which enhances productivity on a variety of jobs, including those in remote locations or confined spaces.

The breakers feature multiple vibration-reducing systems to enhance operator productivity. Their Hand Arm Protection System, an Atlas Copco exclusive, minimizes harmful vibrations that transfer from the machine to the operator. This allows operators to work longer than they can using breakers without the system. The breakers also minimize vibration intensity with their vibro-dampening system. The system uses leaf springs to spread vibrations over a larger area than traditional rubber bushings or spiral springs, which mean fewer vibrations are transferred to the operator.

“Productivity is a main priority for any contractor, and operator comfort has a big impact on that,” said Gus Armbruster, Atlas Copco handheld construction tool product manager. “Incorporating ergonomic concepts into the breakers’ design means operators can work longer and get more done in a shift.”

The breakers’ light weight and powerful operation improve productivity even further. The breakers weigh as little as 53 pounds and are 24 inches wide from handle to handle. Their light weight and compact size make them quick and easy to maneuver and allow operators to use them in confined spaces and remote locations.
