Bobcat, a business of Ingersoll Rand, a diversified industrial firm, has launched the new HB1180 hydraulic breaker attachment.
The new HB1180 is part of the Bobcat family of 80 series hydraulic breakers, designed to meet customer requirements for improved performance, efficiency and reliability, while maintaining familiar Bobcat advantages, such as ease of mounting, versatility and maximum productivity.
The Bobcat® HB1180 hydraulic breaker is approved for use on Bobcat skid-steers (models S220 through S300), compact tracked loaders (models T250 through T300), the A300 all-wheel steer loader and Bobcat 337, 341 and 435 mini-excavators.
Like the rest of the range, the HB1180 breaker is intended for concrete and general demolition work. It features a new internal design with fewer moving parts, reducing overall service time.
Another major advance in the HB1180 breaker is the auto power feature, which is an automatic pressure regulator that ensures maximum performance of the hydraulic breaker, regardless of tool carrier hydraulic flow variations or changes in outdoor temperature. This allows Bobcat hydraulic breakers to deliver a high performance impact blow across a very wide flow range of carriers.
The auto power feature also limits excessive pressure at the time of start-up. As a result, the energy chamber diaphragm is protected, allowing for longer service life.
The energy chamber diaphragm allows the nitrogen pressure to remain constant, so the breaker performance remains constant. No periodic recharging is required, thus the breaker is virtually maintenance-free and operational as soon as it is mounted on the carrier.
Bobcat hydraulic breakers are easy to mount thanks to quick-change mounting systems. They can be utilised on a multitude of Bobcat machines, including mini track loaders, skid-steers, compact tracked loaders, all-wheel steer loaders and micro-, mini- and midi-excavators.
