Furukawa Rock Drill USA (FRD USA) introduced its Fx225 Qtv hydraulic breaker. According to the company, the hammer is designed to help improve day-to-day performance and to provide less maintenance and downtime, as well as a smoother operation and reliability.

Engineered to operate on 21- to 26.5-ton excavators, the Fx225 is an impact class breaker. It boasts improvements to the internal grease routing, which provides more direct lubrication to select components. The breaker includes a relocated air inlet for its dust intake prevention system, which allows it to take in air from the top, creating a dust-free environment.

The hydraulic breaker also features a square, mono-block design and an improved valve design, which reduces hydraulic fluid temperatures for increased performance. It includes a redesigned piston for enhanced surface contact to working steel and a replaceable cylinder liner designed to increase tool life and reduce maintenance.

Other features of the Fx225 include an improved Qtv Box, an increased hydraulic flow range, a three-point sealing system and improved lubrication.

According to the company, all Furukawa hammers come complete with a Pro-Pak for ease of installation. The Pro-Pak includes hose whips, mounting hardware, standard working steel and a tool kit with an operating manual.

Furukawa Rock Drill, headquartered in Kent, Ohio, manufactures blast hole drills, hydraulic breakers and various other attachments for skid steers, mini excavators, backhoes and excavators. In addition, FRD USA’s Rock Drill Division offers a complete line of drills and accessories for construction and quarry sites.
