Arm assembly and Indeco breaker: a perfect match

1 July 2016

Indeco have designed, manufactured and installed a Hydraulic Power Pack, Arm Assembly and Breaker for Hanson Quarry, Hobart, Tasmania.

The arm assembly, which is mounted over the crusher mouth, is used to free the large rocks which cause the crusher to break down. This unit can be operated from the safety of the operator’s cabin using electric joy stick controls.

The unit was specifically designed for this installation to enable the breaker to reach into the crusher as well as clear any blockages on the feeder or in the hopper.

They are using the latest series HP 700 Whisper breaker, offering exceptional power with reduced sound levels. Hanson chose Indeco having operated an Indeco 5000 breaker on their 30 tonne excavator for 5 years. The breaker proved its value on extremely hard rock, underlining the fact that – especially in such cases – Indeco‘s automatic power and speed variation boosts productivity and reliability in a way no competitive breakers can match.
