Moscow company Gorstroytekh has been operating in the construction equipment rental market for many years. One of their contractors carried out the dismantling of the bridge across the Skhodnya River as part of the reconstruction of the capital’s highway. It was necessary to dismantle the bases of the supports — massive reinforced concrete structures made of high-strength waterproofing bridge concrete. Impulse 500S hydraulic breaker from Russian manufacturer Technopark Impulse was an excellent solution for the job.
«Due to the heavy workload of equipment, the speed of its maintenance is determining value when choosing equipment» says the chief mechanic of Gorstroytekh. «That’s why we chose Impulse breaker without through-bolts, because tightening of these rods in traditional Korean hydraulic breakers takes up the majority of time required to maintain hydraulic breakers for excavators.»
«In addition, Impulse breaker has a reduced weight due to a round profile of main body, which allowed us to install a more powerful breaker on a light excavator, and of course the price was a nice bonus,» he adds.
Another significant difference of Impulse hydraulic is the replaceable bottom plate made of wear-resistant Hardox steel. This part is constantly in contact with the destructible material and is most susceptible to mechanical stress during operation. This innovative feature allows to change the plate directly in the field, increasing the life of the entire breaker body.
Moscow contractor carried out demolition works in close proximity to the river, and water fell on the breaker during several months of work. However, even after the end of the operating period and several months of storage in the warehouse, the breaker did not require maintenance. Thanks to the innovative anti-corrosion coating and absence of tightening through bolts, the piston did not have any traces of rust and burrs.
Reliable, easy to maintain, and, most importantly, affordable Impulse hydraulic breaker. Ready for efficient work in any extreme conditions!
