TOP series hydraulic breakers are the result of decades of field experience and a longstanding record of leadership in the industry, Okada America says. Fifteen TOP series breakers ranging in energy class from 150 ft. pounds to 15,000 ft. pounds provide a range of solutions for skid-steers, compact excavators, track loaders, loaders, backhoes and excavators. Okada says the TOP 100A model is ideal for use on 22,000- to 42,000-pound excavators. The model requires 29 to 35 gallons per minute at 2,030 to 2,620 psi, breaking at a rate of 550 to 710 blows per minute. Demolition of heavily reinforced concrete structures, building foundations, trench rock and oversized boulders are among the possible applications for the TOP 100A, the company adds.

The Brokk pedestal boom is a compact, stationary breaker boom system for aggregate operations. According to Brokk, its machine range allows producers to apply the power and precision of its demolition robots to primary breaking tasks that feed mobile crushers, jaw crushers, gyratory crushers and grizzlies. Brokk says the pedestal boom offers an unrivaled range of motion, pairing the company’s three-part arm system with 360-degree slewing for maximum versatility in underground applications. The unit can be operated with either a tethered remote or from a control room.

NPK’s hydraulic hammer line includes models available for skid-steers, backhoes and excavators of all sizes – from 1 to 108-plus metric tons – with a design that combines efficiency, reliability and serviceability. NPK says its hammers feature excellent power-to-weight ratios, a unique gas-charged piston that maximizes efficiency, a two-moving-parts design for reliability, and an anti-blank fire feature that helps eliminate dry firing for increased life. Additionally, the company’s hammer range has separate ports for air and grease, a fully sleeved design that allows for extended service life, a quick-change tool system with a single-round retainer pin, and a variety of tool configurations. NPK hydraulic hammers can also be used with the company’s pedestal breaker systems, which are designed for all types of stationary and portable crusher installations.
