Atlas Copco’s RTEX pneumatic breaker offers rental centers and contractors a cost effective and powerful solution for a variety of demolition projects. The RTEX requires just 37 cfm to operate, about 50 per cent less air energy than conventional breakers in the same weight class. This gives contractors the option to run multiple breakers off of a compact air compressor, resulting in greater efficiency and a high return on investment. The RTEX has the breaking capacity of a 66-lb. breaker or greater, but weighs only 55 lb. Its Sofstart two-step trigger lets the operator start the breaker slowly for full control over the chisel’s starting position and placement.
