JCB Adds to Hydraulic Breaker Line

JCB has doubled the number of hydraulic breakers designed to work with its range of excavators, backhoe loaders and compact equipment lines with its “Contractor Hammer Range." Contractor breakers will be available alongside the existing professional line of hydraulic hammers.

The Contractor breakers offer a compelte range for 0.9 to 55 ton carrier machines.  Models above 12.1 ton carrier weight have auto-greasing systems. Two-speed control valves permit tool speed and stroke customization above 9.9 tons and internal control valves deliver 10 percent efficiency boost versus competitors

Contractor hydraulic hammers have been specifically designed as a solution for customers working in less arduous conditions. They provide a genuine JCB product for users on a budget who still want a good quality hammer that’s highly productive. Each hammer has been extensively tested and matched to work perfectly with JCB carrier machines.

All Contractor breakers have accumulators to protect the carrier machine from hydraulic pressure spikes, reducing possible wear and tear on the hydraulic system. They are also equipped with auxiliary relief valves to protect the breaker from damage when used with other makes of machinery.

Internal control valves result in less maintenance because the oil flow is improved, which reduces heat build-up in the system and protecting internal seals. Heavier models also feature blank firing protection, further cutting the potential for damage to the breaker and wear to the carrier machine.

Contractor breakers use a single scaled design with the same maintenance requirements for each model. This ensures that dealer and customer service staff, particularly in a rental operation, can easily work on all hammers in the range.
