Series expansion

24 April 2008

Holland-Based npk has expanded its gh series of breakers this year with the introduction of two new breakers at the bottom end of its range.

The GH-2 replaces the E-203 and is suitable for carriers from 2,7 to 4,5 tonnes, while the GH-9 replaces the E-210C and is suitable for carriers of 18 to 24 tonnes. Both breakers were shown for the first time at Intermat in April and, according to a company spokesman, there will be more new models at next year’s Bauma in April.

Improved temperature control inside the hammers, and easily replaceable side bolts are new features. The four side bolts hold the hammer sections together and require precise torque between the nut at the top and the nut at the bottom. Further changes include easier maintenance and a reduction of parts, alongside lower noise emissions - there is no metallic contact between the breaker and the bracket to improve sound reduction.
