Chicago Pneumatic Launches Portable Gas Powered Breaker

Fri June 26, 2009 - National Edition

Chicago Pneumatic’s gas powered breaker, the Red Hawk, doesn’t depend on an external power source with hoses or cables attached.

It is an ideal tool for quick jobs and easy portability, such as use in breaking concrete, cutting asphalt, tamping and compacting soil, driving posts, fences, rods or spikes, in soil sampling and in driving profiles and tubes. Transportation to and from a work site is easily achieved in a van or the back of a car, according to the manufacturer.

Due to new vibration-dampening handles, a slim body design and a low service weight of 50 lbs. (22.5 kg), Red Hawk offers maximum ergonomic protection and easy handling for the operator.

An easy engine start, due to efficient choke control and carburetor, rounds off the product that completes the Chicago Pneumatic handheld product range.
