Atlas Copco Middle East has commissioned the regions first HB10000 hydraulic breaker at EPCC in Dammam, Saudi Arabia.

The HB10000 weights 10t and is mounted on a Komatsu PC1250 excavator, making it the world’s largest commercially-available hydraulic breaker, according to a company issued statement. EPCC will use the HB10000 for hard limestone deposits.

Fiaz Ghani, regional business manager for Atlas Copco, said, “The HB 10000 provides an ideal solution for EPCC’s primary quarrying application.  The combination of extreme power and efficiency provided by the breaker gives real operational savings, making it an unrivalled cost-effective production machine for primary rock breaking.”
