Atlas Copco introduces new generation of LP 18 power packs
The 2010 generation power packs have a new design, where the top cover protects the engine well. It can easily be opened to reach the hydraulic parts as well as the air and oil filters when they need to be changed. All controls and connections are placed on the front panel, giving the operator easy access.
“As all moving parts of the power pack work in a closed, lubricated circuit, wear is very low,” says Jan Byrresen, Product Line Manager for handheld hydraulic equipment.
The power packs have an electric and recoil start system and feature a thermostatically-controlled oil cooler, allowing quick warm-ups which helps protect the hydraulic oil from overheating. The large front mounted cooler and air fan give efficient cooling of both the hydraulic system and the engine in warm climate conditions.
A strong frame, large wheels and foldable handles give easy transport and enable use on tough work sites. Power packs are equipped with flat-face, quick-release couplings for easy and fast connections.
