Bauma 2013 Daily Volvo attachements Breakers
Volvo has developed new attachments tailored to its machines
Volvo’s latest machines have been joined at bauma by a clutch of new attachments, including excavator buckets and a hydraulic breaker range.

The range of tailored buckets and hydraulic breakers is designed to match the technical and performance characteristics of Volvo machines. Introductions include general-purpose and heavy-duty buckets for large excavators and a new line of hydraulic breakers for compact excavators.

The buckets for the larger excavators are optimised for ground penetration and formed in high-tensile steel with wear plates for durability. A new profile for the roof structure also adds greater strength and durability.

The general-purpose range is said to be ideal for digging and rehandling soft-to-medium, and comes in several direct-fit or quick-coupler interfaces.

New heavy-duty buckets suit mining or quarrying applications and are described as being optimised to resist the rigors of the toughest applications.
A reinforced roof structure and wear strips cover more than 80% of the bottom area, and side-wear plates cover 50% of the sides.

Volvo CE’s HB-Series hydraulic breakers for utility equipment are optimised to the specific weights of Volvo machines and tailored to Volvo quick couplers. Volvo CE’s HB02 to HB08 models are equipped with a cushion damper to reduce noise and vibration through the machine for greater operator comfort and safety and less damage to the boom and arm.
