DEVELON has expanded its attachment offering with the launch of its HB-Series hydraulic breakers – the HB06H and HB15FH – in North America. 

DEVELON says that the breakers are engineered for performance, durability, and easy maintenance in tough demolition, mining and quarry, and general construction applications. The HB06H and HB15FH are compatible with the DX62R-7 and DX63-7 mini excavators, the DX140LC-7 and DX140LCR-7 crawler excavators, and the DX140W-7 wheel excavator.

"The HB-series breakers offer a new concept with high performance and a simplified design," says Jacob Sherman, product and dealer marketing manager at DEVELON. "They are specifically optimized and fully certified for select DEVELON six-metric-ton mini excavators and 14-metric-ton crawler and wheel excavators. The HB-series breakers provide the highest possible productivity, whether the excavator operator is breaking concrete or rock."

DEVELON HB06H and HB15FH breakers utilize materials and components that help ensure a long lifespan. The breakers' durability is enhanced through an advanced heat treatment process and the use of quality materials for key components, such as the cylinder and piston. 

How does a breaker work?

The energy of the piston stroke is collected by charged nitrogen gas, and the breakers use an inward valve system with a simple structure and fewer internal parts. A urethane damper prevents vibrations that can damage the breaker and helps to improve operator comfort. The front head supports the breaker and assemblies with a bushing, which absorbs the impact of the tool. The low-noise housing is ideal for excavators working in urban areas where noise levels must be controlled or where local regulations require damped breakers.
