Harte Demolition staying loyal to Epiroc equipment
Omagh-based firm adds new HB 2000 to its growing heavy breaker attachments fleet
FROM site clearance and hazardous waste removal to complete strip outs and demolition of buildings, Harte Demolition have successfully planned and completed decommissioning works across Northern Ireland for more than 20 years.
Having first bought an Epiroc SB 102 breaker for use on their Brokk demolition robot, Harte were so impressed with the power of the attachment that they purchased another solid breaker – the SB 152 from regional Epiroc dealers WAC McCandless (Engineers) Ltd.
Staying loyal to the Epiroc brand, the demolition firm has gone on to invest further in Epiroc heavy breakers and grabs. ‘We have used a range of breakers from different manufacturers over the years, but Epiroc’s small and heavy breakers have stood out for both their speed and reliability,’ commented Connor Harte, owner of Harte Demolition.
‘I was also extremely impressed by the professionalism and level of service provided by the team at WAC. From selecting and ordering the breaker and grab, through to having them commissioned on site, the whole process has been simple and easy.’
The company’s latest purchase – an Epiroc HB 2000 – was recently used on an old factory demolition project, where it has been particularly effective at breaking reinforced concrete and shutters, thanks to the manufacturer’s Intelligent Protection System (IPS).
The IPS feature has been specially engineered to simplify the breaking process by automatically adapting the breaker’s operating behaviour to different working conditions. This increases machinery uptime whilst minimizing maintenance and servicing requirements on the attachment at work.
Overall, the Epiroc HB 2000 breaker has delivered a much simpler, efficient and more economical operation for Harte Demolition, as the company continues to go from strength to strength.
