Volvo releases HB-Series medium- and large- size breakers



Volvo releases HB-Series medium- and large- size breakers

Volvo Construction Equipment’s new series of HB hydraulic breakers for 14- to 70-tonne excavators is now available in the EMEA and APAC regions. Durable, powerful, and easy to install, HB-Series breakers are the ideal partner for the toughest jobs in the mining, quarrying and construction segments.
 
With operating weights of 909 to 6,031 kg, the 11 breakers in Volvo’s HB14 to HB70 series work together in perfect harmony with Volvo’s excavators, from the EC140 up to the EC700 — delivering consistent power and breaking force, no matter the task at hand.

For optimum stability, Volvo breakers and Volvo machines are perfectly matched to work in harmony together. These breakers are also exactly tailored to the machine’s hydraulic technology, further enhancing performance.

The HB14 to HB70 breakers are selfgreasing and encased in a fully sealed housing, which protects the power cell, prolongs their lifespan and reduces noise. Their hydraulic systems are protected from pressure spikes by large capacity accumulators, which also serve to increase impact power.

For flexibility and increased productivity, the operator can adapt frequency to the application using the breaker’s dual-speed control. A cushion damper reduces noise and vibration back through the machine, for greater operator comfort and safety, as well as decreased risk of damage to the boom and arm. Anti-blank firing prevents the breaker from continuing to strike once material has been completely penetrated.

The versatile HB-Series can also be adapted depending on the application with a variety of tools, including moils, pyramid moils, chisels and blunts. HB-Series breakers can be purchased in a comprehensive all-in-one package — which includes hydraulic hoses, breaker bracket (this comes standard in some markets) and breaker tools — so they can go to work right away, no matter whether they’re being attached to new machines or integrated into an existing fleet.

A full range of spare parts and work tools is available through the extensive Volvo parts network. HB-Series breakers come with Volvo warranty, and like all Volvo attachments, they are backed by Volvo’s extensive service network, providing the peace of mind that comes with an extensive, worldwide infrastructure of technicians, workshops and dealers.
