Bobcat's biggest breaker
11 April 2008
Intended for trenching, concrete demolition, secondary breaking and general excavation work, Bobcat's 376 kg HB2380 hydraulic breaker is the new top-of- the-range model in its 80 Series.
The HB2380 can be mounted on a wide range of Bobcat carriers from the 442 and 444 midi-excavators (7 to 12 tonnes), S220, S250 and S300 skid-steers; T250 and T300 compact tracked loaders and the A300 all-wheel steer loader.
Impact energy is 1356 Joules and blow rate is 690 to 910, depending on ground conditions. Hydraulic flow rates are from 75 to 125 litres/minute.
It shares various common features with other models in the 80 Series range – HB280 to HB1180 – including, fewer moving parts for easy and minimal maintenance, and an automatic pressure regulator, which ensures optimal operating pressure on all approved carriers.
Fewer moving parts also means the HB2380 doesn't need tie rods, allowing it to disassembled without the need for specialist tools. It also includes a soundproofing system where the striking assembly is held top and bottom by a suspension system that is not in contact with the outer cylindrical housing.
