Epiroc has added two new models to its Combi Cutter range.
Designed for carriers in the 20-30tonne and 25-40tonne classes, respectively, the CC 2300 and CC 3100 are said to offer a productive combination of short cycle times, easy handling and simple maintenance.
“The CC 2300 and CC 3100 have all the well-known features that make attachments in the Combi Cutter range a popular choice for challenging tasks on demolition sites around the world,” says Epiroc.
“They are robust, multi-purpose machines offering low-noise, low vibration operation and suitable for practically any kind of primary demolition work. The cutting blades on all versions are replaceable and reversible and the attachments can be equipped with different sized jaws according to requirements.”
As with other attachments in the CC range, the CC 2300 and the CC 3100 are available with two jaw versions, the Universal version (U) and the Steel cutting version (S).
The Universal versions are said to be ideal for light to medium duty building demolition and heavy duty industrial demolition involving heavily reinforced concrete. The Steel cutting versions are specifically designed for cutting steel profiles in general steel structures.
“With the CC 2300 and the CC 3100 the stable cutter body features two powerful hydraulic cylinders with integrated speed valves for minimum cycle times and, in turn, minimum fuel consumption,” says Epiroc.
“Fully protected by piston rod guards, the cylinders deliver virtually constant closing force which remains high even when the jaws are almost closed.
“Two jaws moving independently eliminate displacement forces on the cutter and the carrier, ensuring controlled demolition of unstable concrete walls, regardless of which jaw attacks the material first.”
With a modular design and the jaws mounted on one central bearing pin, the cutter jaws can be changed easily onsite.
