2015 Cobra™ sheds skin for more efficient operations
Atlas Copco introduces it´s 2015 range of Cobra PROe and TTe petrol breakers. The unique percussion mechanism delivers engine power with minimum losses to the tool tip, resulting in impact energy of 60 Joules (PRO version), respectively 40 Joules (TT version). Both versions are now available with 25 x 108mm shank sizes. This new shank size makes the Cobras shorter and lighter, and vibrations are minimised even further.
The redesigned Cobra PROe and Cobra TTe have up to 10% less vibrations than earlier models. “Using a handheld breaker for long periods can be exhausting for the operator. But thanks to the improved Atlas Copco hand-arm protection system (HAPS), operators can work longer and stay well within limits of recommended health and safety standards” explains Korobotchkine. “And as now it can run on the alkylate petrol, operator’s exposure to harmful exhausts is significantly lower as well as the environmental footprint.”
Cobra TTe is the most optimal punch for tie tamping. With 40 Joules at the tool tip – confirmed by our customers in the industry - the TTe delivers high enough energy to push the ballast back under the ties and low enough to prevent the pulverization of ballast.
The Cobra system is a standard choice for many utilities around the world when the access to the working site is limited due to the conditions or difficult in the emergency case. By offering more power and a greater variety of sizes, the 2015 Cobra system aims to make it even easier both for civil and rescue workers to conduct construction tasks or save lives in every situation.
