Epiroc introduces Combi Cutter 1600 hydraulic attachment

Epiroc has released the Combi Cutter 1600 hydraulic attachment to the Canadian market
The CC 1600 model for carriers in the 13 to 23 tonne class offers greater stability, lower weight and higher performance than previous versions.
The Epiroc CC1600 offers a number of enhanced design features such as; an optimized jaw and main body design, an inverted design of the hydraulic cylinders, enhanced bearing protection, wider and more robust bearing points and strong protection for the crushing teeth on the Universal versions.
The stable cutter body features two hydraulic cylinders with integrated speed valves for shorter cycle times and, thus, lower fuel consumption. Fully protected by piston rod guards, the cylinders deliver virtually constant closing force, which remains high even when the jaws are almost closed. Optimal positioning and precise handling are ensured by 360-degree endless hydraulic rotation.
The Coupling and Positioning System, CAPS, makes it easy to switch jaw types on-site to suit the work in hand. The cutting blades of all versions are reversible and replaceable.
Two jaw versions are available for the CC1600: the Universal version (U) and the Steel cutting version (S). The U-version is ideal for light- to medium-duty building demolition and heavy-duty industrial demolition (heavily reinforced concrete). The S-version is specifically designed for cutting steel profiles in general steel structures. Both versions are efficient tools for secondary reduction and material separation.
