Atlas Copco’s new Essential (ES) breaker attachments give rental centers a fast ROI by simplifying maintenance and operation. The line includes three models designed to be economical and user friendly, with a narrow design to promote visibility and easy handling on job sites. 

Atlas Copco ES BreakersThe ES 60, ES 70 and ES 80 models' slim design also results in faster cleanup. For example, operators can cut narrow and precise trenches for plumbing installation applications without removing excess soil to accommodate the breaker’s size.The breakers feature Atlas Copco’s exclusive, solid body construction that combines percussion and mounting components in one uniform structure. This eliminates the need for external fasteners, which allows rental center mechanics to quickly and easily replace wear bushing and seals, resulting in fast turnaround times for repairs and maintenance.

Atlas Copco designed the ES breakers with a central lubrication point for quick, easy access to grease the breaker. The breakers also feature full-length floating bushings to ensure grease fully coats bushings and tool steel to minimize wear. The breakers enhance productivity with a nitrogen-gas assist system that works with the units’ hydraulic oil to accelerate the breakers’ pistons and achieve impact rates as high as 1,300 beats per minute.
