Atlas Copco CC 650 CombiCutter Made for Light-Duty Demo

Mon May 10, 2010 - National Edition

With a service weight of 1,389 lbs. (630 kg), Atlas Copco’s new CC 650 CombiCutter is designed for carriers in the 13,200- to 26,500-lb. (5,987 to 12,020 kg) weight class. The CC 650’s hydraulic rotation device allows 360-degree rotation of the attachment for quick and easy positioning. Featuring 50 tons (45 t) of crushing force, the CC 650 is ideal for light-duty demolition work and interior reconstruction and gutting work, according to the manufacturer.

The CC 650 has all the features of larger models in the CombiCutter line. Two movable jaws and two main hydraulic cylinders offer high crushing force throughout the entire operating cycle. The jaws are supported by a central main pin, which combined with “CAPS” (Atlas Copco’s coupling and positioning system) allows both jaws to be fitted or removed as one unit for easy replacement on site.

The cutter blades can be turned around for additional use, doubling the wear time, and they also can be replaced on site.

“We are excited to offer a new model to our proven range of CombiCutter hydraulic attachments,” said Kevin Loomis, product manager — hydraulic attachments. “Atlas Copco’s new CC 650 can be used on a smaller excavator, saving on operating costs while still offering ’heavy weight’ performance.”
