Fixed or Rotational Drum Cutters? Epiroc Models Do Both
Published: 5/5, 2020
Pro bracket is the latest addition to the Epiroc product range. With this high-quality, rigid manifold for transverse drum cutters, the world-renowned mining and construction equipment company is once again demonstrating its commitment to innovative development. Consistent output quality and efficiency with increased investment protection are the key features of the new product.
Epiroc drum cutters offer endless 360-degree hydraulic rotation that enable optimal positioning and precise handling. The new fixed manifold significantly improves the protection of the hoses when working in confined areas and where there is limited visibility, without compromising the exemplary quality and performance.
The optimized hose guidance is outstanding with the Pro bracket. Hydraulic hoses run directly along the excavator arm, and are fed out to the back in the center of the extension arm for protection. This means that they sustain significantly less mechanical strain, do not cross each other, and are better protected during work with minimal visibility of the cutting heads, such as during channel construction, close to walls, in tunnels, or in water). The robust design in the form of a closed box prevents the demolished material from falling onto the engine cover.
Epiroc offers the Pro bracket with an optional water spraying system to meet the ever-increasing requirements for dust suppression during demolition work, tunnel and channel construction. The installation of an optional additional valve enables the overflow oil line and return to be combined so that the drum cutter can be connected to the breaker circuit of the excavator with just two hoses.
