Atlas Copco Construction Equipment's latest generation of bucket crusher attachments offer higher output and greater reliability than previous models. The new bucket crushers — the BC 2500 and BC 3700 — process about 80 percent more material due to their hydraulic drive system. The BC 2500 fits 24-ton to 33-ton carrier weight classes, and the BC 3700 fits 30-ton to 42-ton carrier weight classes.

“The new bucket crushers allow contractors to increase the versatility of carriers, especially on demolition, recycling and road construction applications,” said Rich Elliott, Atlas Copco product manager, hydraulic attachments. “The powerful drive systems and high reliability make them an ideal alternative to mobile jaw crushers for cramped worksites. Plus, they can process a wide range of materials, including aggregate, asphalt and concrete.”

The attachments feature powerful components that allow carrier operators to crush as much as 110 tons of material per hour. The drive system — two hydraulic motors and a timing belt — generates the high torque needed for powering the crushing jaw. The attachments also feature a reverse function to easily remove any blockage by pushing material back through the inlet.

Atlas Copco is exhibiting one of its new bucket crushers January 17-20, 2017 at booth C4303 during World of Concrete.
