Belle launches low vibration breakers
By Murray Pollok22 April 2008
Belle Group has introduced a new range of low vibration breakers. Ray Neilson, Belle’s managing director, told IRN than the BHB2025X breaker has a hand-arm vibration (HAV) of just over 7.0 m/s2, and that the new models had twice the break-out force and double the compression of the older versions.
Mr Neilson said the new designs were also more reliable and cheaper to service, with no need to ‘de-gas’ the accumulator when stripping down the machine. Also new from the company is a lightweight plate compactor, the 50 kg PCEL320X, which Belle said is an ideal “patching” compactor.
Mr Neilson said Belle’s sales grew by 25% last year – with exports accounting for 50% of the total - and the company is budgeting 10% growth in 2008.
