At the core of the PB 420 is its advanced hydraulic system, which ensures consistent and powerful performance.
The breaker is powered by a hydraulic source, typically connected to an excavator or backhoe's hydraulic system. The hydraulic power is transmitted to the breaker through hoses, enabling it to generate the necessary force for various breaking tasks.
The PB 420's construction and design are geared towards durability and longevity. It is built with high-quality materials and precision engineering, ensuring it can withstand the rigors of heavy-duty use. The robust housing protects the internal components from external elements, contributing to a longer service life and minimizing downtime due to maintenance or repairs.
One of the standout features of the Atlas Copco PB 420 is its energy recovery system. This innovative technology allows the breaker to recycle the recoil energy generated during the breaking process. By capturing and redirecting this energy, the breaker becomes more efficient, requiring less hydraulic power from the carrier machine to deliver the same force. This energy-saving capability leads to reduced fuel consumption, lower operational costs, and a smaller environmental footprint.
Ease of operation is a key consideration for any construction equipment, and the PB 420 delivers on this front as well.
The breaker is designed with operator comfort in mind, featuring vibration-damping handles that minimize operator fatigue during extended use. Additionally, an automatic lubrication system ensures that crucial components receive proper lubrication, enhancing their lifespan and reducing maintenance requirements.
Safety is of utmost importance in construction and demolition applications, and the PB 420 is equipped with various safety mechanisms. These include anti-blank firing and overload protection, which prevent damage to the breaker and the carrier machine, ensuring safe and reliable operation while safeguarding both the equipment and operators.
The versatility of the PB 420 makes it suitable for a wide range of applications, including road construction, demolition, trenching, and foundation work. Its ability to handle different tasks efficiently makes it an essential tool for contractors and construction professionals, enabling them to complete projects with precision and productivity.
