New Komatsu V-series breakers are fully variable to help maximize productivity and lower per-ton costs
Versatility makes breakers some of the most essential tools in the construction and quarry industries. Designed and tested for compatibility with Komatsu PC210 to PC490 excavators, the new JMHB-V breaker series helps customers achieve excellent impact energy and performance on tough tasks such as rock breaking and concrete demolition.
“Komatsu fully variable breakers detect the hardness of the material and adjust stroke and impact force of the strike piston accordingly,” said Aaron Scarfia, regional manager, Komatsu North America Attachment Division. “This reduces the amount of blank firing, leading to longer product life.”
Advantages of the new JMHB-V breaker series include:
Komatsu V-series breakers provide high productivity and efficiency
With minimal wasted energy and subsequent higher operating efficiency, Komatsu’s 100% hydraulic-fired V-series breakers modulate their impact force and frequency with up to 16 working positions to match most applications’ requirements. Designed to help maximize productivity while helping lower per-ton costs, the breakers are fitted with an innovative energy-saving recovery valve that recuperates energy to drive efficiency.
New Komatsu V-series breakers have fully variable technology
Depending on the application’s hardness, V-series breakers automatically select the best piston stroke length and speed. By adjusting to either hard material, with long and powerful strokes, or to softer material, with shorter and faster strokes, the breakers can achieve high production output, with little wasted impact energy.
New Komatsu V-series breakers offer valuable standard features
To help owners get more from their investment, Komatsu V-series breakers have several valuable standard features, including automatic greasing, advanced blank firing protection, swivel hose couplings and heavy-duty housing. The shock-dampening systems in the form of upper and lower suspensions help reduce the risk of cracking excavator booms and breaker housings, while the mounted standard automatic lubrication feature helps guard against contamination caused by dust and debris.
New Komatsu V-series breakers can control vibration and noise
For greater operator comfort, suspensions with rubber/poly components help absorb impact and reduce vibrations through the boom. The completely enclosed sound-dampening housings reduce the amount of noise generated when compared to open-style breakers, to offer customers a solution to addressing noise ordinances in urban applications.
New Komatsu V-series breakers are equipped for dependability
To support regular maintenance of breakers, inspection kits are included with gauges to measure wear on all critical components. Additionally, these breakers are backed by the Komatsu North America Attachment Division, a dedicated hydraulic attachments sales and service team that supports Komatsu distributors. These specialists are factory-trained and experienced with installation, operation, service and rebuilds.
“Fully variable breakers offer excellent efficiency,” said Scarfia. “We encourage anyone looking for greater production across a wide variety of demolition applications to contact their dealer representative for more information.”
