Hydraulic breaker line introduced

Chicago Pneumatic’s RX hydraulic breakers use fewer components.

Commerce City, Colo., October 28, 2010—Chicago Pneumatic’s new line of hydraulic breakers are built to last with an innovative design that uses fewer components while bringing the rugged power needed on the job.

With a power booster feature for maximum performance, the 13 models in the RX line offer higher breaking performance in tougher applications without increasing the hydraulic input. While the impact energy remains constant, the breaker increases the blow frequency, resulting in increased percussive performance. Meanwhile, the power stop function reduces blank firing, protecting the breaker and carrier and increasing the working life of the components.

The innovative design of the RX line of breakers helps decrease downtime on the job site. With the exception of the RX11, the RX2 to RX22 models have fewer components, only two moving parts and no side bolts, making them easier to service, maintain and repair.

The larger models in the RX line, RX25-RX53, feature a power control valve to increase productivity. This enables the operator to set the breaker characteristics according to the application for higher productivity. The RX25-RX53 models also feature a cutting-edge side bolt system that uses head bolts and insert threads to distribute the thread strain equally.
