World-class construction equipment is the specialty of Ingersoll Rand (IR), which has been making worksites more productive and safer for more than 150 years. Available in Canada through Dobco Equipment, IR’s diverse portfolio includes concrete breakers – such as the unique PB series. These pavement breakers are the perfect choice for bridge-deck resurfacing, general demolition, and many other important construction applications. They boost power while cutting costs with fewer parts.
High power with low noise
IR pavement breakers are distinguished in the industrial market in many ways. First, each has a standard flex handle that gives maximum comfort to the user and boosts productivity, as well as one-piece housing that eliminates the need for expensive side rods and springs. These concrete breakers offer a high level of power while reducing the amount of components and items that wear out quickly. Another key benefit of IR pavement breakers is the Power-Strok piston. This feature delivers a powerful, high-energy output.
The PB series includes the PB35 and PB50 designs, each of which is available from Dobco in two separate models. The PB35AL8 and PB35AS8 units weigh less, making them both ideal for lightweight concrete demolition. All four of these breakers are strong enough for the toughest tasks. Each has a built-in lubricator that helps assure adequate lubrication, as well as two roll pins and removal of the housing plug on the top head to make service access simpler. Two of these models – the PB35AS8 and the PB50AS1 – also have mufflers that cut back on noise production.
Each of these concrete breakers has a bore diameter measuring 44 millimetres (mm) and a stroke length measuring 159 mm. Other specifications: minimum hose size of 19 mm; air inlet of ¾ of an inch NPT; weight ranging from 18 to 25 kilograms; length of 625 (PB35) or 699 (PB50) mm without accessory; air consumption of 1,388 (PB35) or 1,643 (PB50) litres per minute; and capability of 1,150 (PB50) or 1,250 (PB35) blows per minute.
IR manufactures a second line of breakers, the MX series, for heavier construction applications.
