Atlas Copco Construction Tools has unveiled six new hydraulic compactor attachments powered for carriers with an operating weight between one and 40 tonnes.
The new compactors, which include the HC150, HC350, HC 450, HC 850, HC1050 and HC1055, require minimum maintenance thanks to their PermanentLube continuous lubrication system.
“The integrated flow rate and pressure control protects these units from overload, particularly if compactors are used on different carriers,” said Atlas Copco’s spokesman.
According to the spokesman, a key feature of the compactors is the housing attachment offset at 15 degrees – aimed to improve force distribution on the vibrator plate while minimising the stress and wear on the compactor.
The compactor attachments are suitable for compacting trenches, ground soil and embankments and for driving in and pulling out form work, posts and sheet piling,” added the spokesman.
ACCT is a division within Atlas Copco´s Construction and Mining Technique business area. It develops, manufactures and markets equipment for rock drilling, demolition, compaction, recycling and concrete applications.
