Montabert launch entry-level range of hydraulic breakers

Montabert have launched a new Blue Line range of hydraulic breakers for applications in construction, demolition, quarrying, road building, utilities and trenching. The first model in the Blue Line range is the 1.7-tonne XL1700 breaker providing a blow energy of 3,400 J, a frequency of 600 blows/min and a tool diameter of 137mm. The XL1700 can be used with excavators providing a minimum to maximum flow range of 100-150 l/min, and an operating pressure of 180 bar.  

The range of Blue Line breakers, which complements Montabert’s existing family, is designed as an entry-level range of quality breakers with a simple, cost-effective design offering high performance and efficiency, durability and easy serviceability. 

The high performance offered by the Blue Line breakers is based around a patented main valve and an energy recovery system. The main valve and the nitrogen chamber accumulator control the movements of the piston, increasing the overall performance and efficiency through the optimization of the strike power of the breaker. 

The energy recovery system increases the strike power by using the energy generated by the piston rebound. This system allows an automatic increase of the breaker’s frequency when used on hard materials (without any manual intervention on the breaker).

The lifespan of the breakers is extended by the hydraulic and mechanical auto-stop system. This combination protects against blank firing from the first blow via a dampening system.  The blank fire protection and the hydraulic cycle management offered by the main valve reduce pressure peaks, resulting in protection for the excavator.

The high manufacturing quality and the very tight tolerances on the Blue Line breakers guarantee full parts interchangeability.
