Atlas Copco has introduced a range of eight Drum Cutter attachments to its range of Construction Tools. The DC Drum Cutter range is available with service weights from 400 pds to 6400 pounds, suitable for carriers of 1-50 tons.
“Our Drum Cutters are an excellent choice for rock or concrete wall and surface profiling, trenching, frozen soil excavation, soft rock excavation in quarries, demolition, and dredging,” says Gordon Hambach, Product Line Manager Power Demolition Tools. “They are a complementary product to our hydraulic breakers and offer an additional solution for softer rock applications up to 100 Mpa”.
Atlas Copco Drum cutters can be used underwater to a depth of 30 m without additional installation. Due to small grain sizes, cut rock or concrete can be used as backfill material without additional crushing.
Low noise and vibration levels make the new range of Drum Cutters suitable for use on restricted jobsites and in sensitive urban areas.
he drum cutting technology used allows accurate removal of material in tunnels and trenches, and from any other kind of rock or concrete surface.
Atlas Copco Drum Cutters will be available globally as of March 2014.
