bretec_l20cMarch 17, 2015 – Sandvik Construction unveiled
the two latest models from its mid-segment Bretec hydraulic breaker brand, the
M17C and L20C. These breakers incorporate a number of new features and updates
over the M17 and L20 models they replace.

Designed for carriers in the 15 to 23 tons and
20 to 29 tons operating weight class, the M17C and L20C models boast operating
weights of 1,240 and 1,650 kg respectively. Impact rates range from 280 to 760
blows per minute on the M17C, and from 390 to 700 blows per minute on the L20C.

In addition to their enhanced performance, the
two new models incorporate many new features providing greater reliability and
durability, as well as delivering reduced ownership and operating costs. These
features include:

          Round
Retaining Pins – Delivers extended life for lower cost of ownership and operation

          New
Tool Retaining System – Permits faster tool changes for reduced downtime

          Improved
Tool Seal – Protects tool, bushings and retaining pins reducing ownership and
operating costs

          Dust-Protected
Housing – Prevents dust ingress for reduced wear and helps reduce noise levels

          Idle
Blow Protection – Eliminates tie rod stress and oil overheating to protect
against premature failure

          Automatic
Greasing – Auto lubrication now available as an option for greater tool
protection

As well as these new features, the M17C and
L20C both benefit from the addition of durable hydraulic hoses as standard; a
high pressure accumulator that protects against pressure peaks; improved gas
sealing for extended service intervals; and an improved and self-adjusting pressure
control valve to eliminate oil spillages.

The new improved Bretec models join a product
range that now includes 10 models that are suitable for carriers in the 1.2 to
40 tons operating weight class.
