Epiroc, Commerce City, Colorado, showcased several of its hydraulic attachments in the National Demolition Association (NDA) Live DEMOlition Event at the Demolition Rockies convention March 23 in Aurora, Colorado.
The second annual hands-on demonstration event offered attendees the opportunity to test and operate a variety of demolition equipment. Epiroc hydraulic attachments featured in the demo included:
BP 2050 Bulk Pulverizer
Epiroc says its bulk pulverizers enable clean separation of rebar and concrete and are designed to pick up demolished material from a pile. The pulverizer has optional 360-degree endless hydraulic rotation, which Epiroc says allows for optimal positioning and precise handling. The carrier weight class of the BP 2050 bulk pulverizer is 39,500 to 59,500 pounds.
CC 3100 U Concrete Cutter
Designed for carriers in the weight class of 55,000 to 88,000 pounds, the CC 3100 U concrete cutter is suitable for most primary demolition work. The universal jaw version is ideal for light- to medium-duty building demolition and heavy-duty industrial demolition.
HB 2000 Hydraulic Breaker
Ideal for primary blast-free rock excavation and secondary rock breaking on construction sites and in quarries, surface and underground mines, the Epiroc HB 2000 hydraulic breaker features a design that makes it suitable for the toughest jobs. Equipped with the patented and fully automated Intelligent Protection System (IPS), the HB 2000 is suitable for carriers in 48,500-to 84,000-pound weight class.
MG 1500 Multi Grapple
Grapples are universal tools for demolition, sorting and loading all kind of materials. The MG 1500 Multi Grapple is equipped with a hydraulic rotator to ease in picking, sorting and positioning of the material being picked up or set into place. It is designed for carriers in the 35,500- to 53,000-pound weight class.
SB 202 Hydraulic Breaker
Epiroc SB hydraulic breakers are suited for demolishing light concrete structures and asphalt pavements. They come standard with an integrated water port for dust suppression to enhance operator safety and to assist in compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) final silica rule regulations. The SB 202 breaker is designed for the 5,500-to 13,000-pound carrier weight class.
SB 702 Hydraulic Breaker
Featuring an integrated pressure relief valve to protect against overloads, the SB 702 hydraulic breaker is optimal for working in confined spaces such as inside buildings, along walls or in narrow trenches. The carrier weight class of the SB 702 is 22,000 to 37,500 pounds.
SC 6200 Hydraulic Shear
Hydraulic shears are ideal for cutting steel structures at demolition sites or recycling metal girders, sheets and cables at scrap yards. The SC 6200 shear is ideal for carriers of 110,000 to 165,000 pounds stick-mounted and 66,000 to 121,000 pounds boom-mounted.
“Working with the right hydraulic attachments is critical to success in the demolition industry,” says Mila Armer, the marketing communications manager for Epiroc, in a news release. “We were excited to offer contractors at NDA an opportunity to experience the productivity, efficiency and safety advantages of our equipment in a real job-site environment.”
