Chicago Pneumatic Construction Equipment has introduced the Red Hawk Road gas-powered breaker to the North American market, featuring a powerful breaking force, easy portability, minimum vibration and maximum production all in one tool, ideal for general construction, demolition and road building applications.

The Red Hawk Road — the only gas-powered breaker in the Chicago Pneumatic breaker lineup — is easily transported to any job site, and is designed to get the job done faster, combining high percussive energy with high blow frequency.

Offering the same power-to-weight ratio as pneumatic or hydraulic breakers without any power source or hoses, the Red Hawk Road delivers a powerful breaking force of 60 joules. With a light weight of 55 lbs. (25 kg), the breaker has a full speed impact rate of 1,440 blows per minute (bpm) and operates with a guaranteed sound power level of 109 dBA.

The hand-arm vibration value of the Red Hawk is 14 ft. per second (4.3 m per second) and allows 50 percent longer work time with a one cylinder, two-stroke engine. Measuring at 36.5-in. (92.7 cm) with a width across the handles of 24-in. (61 cm), the Red Hawk Road minimizes vibration reducing the impact on operators while increasing productivity.

Featuring a fan-driven cooling system, the Red Hawk Road has a recoil starter with a decompression valve, a redesigned tank cap and electronic ignition for easy start-up in any type of weather.

"The Red Hawk Road is the toughest breaker in the Chicago Pneumatic lineup and can be utilized for everything from driving and compacting to cutting and breaking," said Gus Armbruster, product manager, handheld tools at Chicago Pneumatic. "Delivering more power means increased efficiency and allows workers to be more productive on the job site while still maintaining a comfortable level of operation."
