What’s New In Plant & Equipment
2015 Cobra delivers
Atlas Copco introduces it’s 2015 range of Cobra PROe and
TTe petrol breakers. The percussion mechanism delivers
engine power with minimum losses to the tool tip, result-
ing in impact energy of 60 Joules (PRO version), respec-
tively 40 Joules (TT version).
Both versions are now available with 25 x 108 mm
shank sizes. This new shank size makes the Cobras shorter
and lighter, and vibrations are minimised even further.
“Customers can perform better when they use
a machine that fits their needs – especially in
situations where every centimetre counts. Using
the right size for every operation helps the operator
get more done in less time”
says the product line manager Oleg Korobotchkine.
The redesigned models have up to 10% less vibrations
than earlier models. With the improved Atlas Copco hand-
arm protection system (HAPS), operators can work longer
and stay well within limits of recommended health and
The petrol version can use alkylate petrol, thereby ex-
posing the operator to less armful exhausts.
