Atlas Copco Construction Tools Inc. is the world's leading manufacturer of hydraulic breaker and silent demolition tools offering an extensive product line, leading technology and worldwide product support. Atlas Copco pioneered the development of handheld pneumatic tools in the 19th century, introduced the first hydraulic breaker in the early 1960s and with the acquisition of Krupp hydraulic hammers in 2002, became the world's largest manufacturer of hydraulic hammers.

Featuring Krupp percussion technology, Atlas Copco offers three categories of hydraulic hammers for demolition, construction and mining applications ranging in size from 200 to 15,000 foot-pounds. Their product offering includes the HB7000, the world's largest hydraulic breaker. The Penta, MB and HB series all feature leading technology including AutoControl system, DustProtector II, ContiLube II and VibroSilenced system.

Atlas Copco also produces a line of silent demolition tools for a variety of demolition and recycling applications. All demolition cutters, pulverizers, grapples and scrap cutters include superior technology to increase efficiency and performance while reducing noise and vibration.

In addition to hydraulic breakers and silent demolition tools, Atlas Copco offers a complete line of handheld pneumatic tools such as paving breakers, rivet busters, chipping hammers and rock drills for demolition and construction applications. The line of pneumatic tools also boasts superior technology and quality and includes the Cobra mk1 and Cobra Combi, which are the world's most advanced breakers and rock drills.

Complimenting the Atlas Copco line is a variety of steel accessories available to accompany the full line of products. All accessories are manufactured with high-quality steel to ensure a long life and optimum performance.

Service and Support

Not only is Atlas Copco dedicated to offering customers high-quality equipment and leading technology, but the Atlas Copco staff is also dedicated to providing exceptional service and support. With factory owned service centers located in Cleveland, Ohio and Austin, Texas specializing in hydraulic hammer service and support, Atlas Copco is capable of ensuring customers prompt and professional care of products.

Atlas Copco developed the service centers primarily to provide support and education to dealers; however, the service centers also work directly with customers to provide hammer service and are available to travel throughout the country to perform field maintenance. Although the service centers' staffs primarily focus on Atlas Copco products, they will service hammers regardless of the brand.

Service center staff attend yearly training in Essen, Germany with technicians who assist in the development of hammers and have firsthand knowledge of their features, technology and service needs. To ensure that technicians have the most current information on hydraulic hammers, company representatives from Germany also travel regularly to the U.S. to provide additional training.

Atlas Copco products are available both through a network of distributors located throughout the U.S. and directly from company representatives. For more information on Atlas Copco products or to locate a dealer in your area, visit Atlas Copco on the web or call us.
