Atlas Copco Canada launches new range of Drum Cutters

Atlas Copco Canada has added a range of Drum Cutter attachments to its line of Construction Tools. Eight new DC models provide cutting widths from 480 to 1239.52 mm (18.9 to 48.8 inches), and are ideal for a wide variety of applications such as narrow trenching and precise profiling of rock or concrete.

“The new Drum Cutters are an excellent choice for demolition, dredging, frozen soil excavation and soft rock excavation in quarries,” says Wayne Ross, Construction Tools Division vice-president and business line manager. “They are a complementary product to our hydraulic breakers and offer an additional solution for softer rock applications up to 100 MPa (987 atm).”

Designed with a high torque gear motor and an optimized pick pattern, the new Drum Cutters offer increased productivity on the jobsite. The housing was designed with Hardox steel for wear protection and increased uptime. The attachment can also be rotated 360-degrees for easy positioning.

The eight Drum Cutters are available with service weights ranging from 200 kg to 2900 kg (440.92 to 6393.41 pounds), and are suitable for carriers of 1 to 50 tonnes (2200 to 6600 pounds).

Engineered with special cutting technology, the new Drum Cutters provide accurate removal of material in any kind of rock or concrete surface. Due to the small grain sizes produced, cut rock or concrete can be used as backfill without additional crushing.

Atlas Copco Drum Cutters can also be used underwater to a depth of 30 meters (98.42 feet) without additional installation.

Because of their low noise and vibration levels, the new Drum Cutters are ideal for restrictive jobsites and in sound-sensitive urban areas.
