Montabert® automatic Variable-Speed Breakers sense changes in material hardness and adjust the breaker’s impact energy and striking rate. The result is increased productivity, based on the application, and reduced blank firing. Montabert’s variable-speed technology also reduces unnecessary harmful energy from transferring to the carrier and breaker, helping to prevent wear on parts and components. These breakers ideally work in tandem with TRAMAC boom systems to productively break oversize rocks prior to primary crushing.

TRAMAC offers nine models of stationary boom assemblies for rock breakers that — depending on the model — provide horizontal reach from 14 – 65 ft, 170° – 360° of swing arc,  and 1,500 – 13,000 ft lb of hammer impact. Boom weights range from 5,850 – 55,000 lb and accommodate hammer weights from 1,098 – 9,920 lb. Standard across its entire boom line, rugged cylinders of high-strength steel and welded construction are built from chrome-plated, high-tensile steel rods. Heavy-duty, oversize pins are fitted with replaceable aluminum bronze bushings. Self-aligning spherical bushings on the cylinder rod and barrel end ensure long equipment life. An extremely strong, low-profile base of shaped plate steel attaches easily to any platform foundation.
