Chicago Pneumatic is introducing its RX rig-mounted hydraulic breakers to the Chinese market. The company is making its construction equipment available in China for the first time and has chosen the RX breakers to form the first wave of product launches.
A network of distributors is being established across the country to make the breakers accessible to users in the construction, mining and quarrying industries.
“Our RX breakers are excellent flag-bearers for the range of construction equipment we are proudly introducing to China for the first time,” says Andrew Cope, vice president of business development for Chicago Pneumatic Construction Equipment.
“They represent a cost-effective solution for those seeking to invest in durable and robustly built equipment that will perform in the toughest environments. Tools of this kind will be vital to this country’s construction industry, which is ready for growth, and also to the mining and quarrying industries which remain such strong contributors to the Chinese economy.”
The German-engineered breakers are being brought to market by master distributor Neuson.
The RX breaker range incorporates light, medium and heavy breakers.
The heavy breaker range (RX26, RX30, RX38, RX46 and RX54) features a service weight from 1,800-4,200kg, fitting carriers with weights ranging from 20-70tonnes, “making the breakers ideal for heavy demolition, rock excavation and quarry applications.”
The light and medium rig-mounted breakers comprise nine models designed to match various application needs found in general construction, light to medium demolition, renovation and trenching.
The medium breaker range (RX 14 to RX 22) offers a service weight between 800-1,500kg and is specified for carriers in weight class 12-28tonnes, and are ideal for applications in demolition, building renovation, road construction, rock excavation and quarrying, while the light breaker range (RX 2 to RX 11) is specified for carriers in weight class 1-15tonnes.
