Chicago Pneumatic Construction Equipment has introduced two brand new handheld breakers to the North American market; The CP 1260 and CP 1290.

Many of the features of the CP 1230 and CP 1240 were rolled into the CP 1260 and CP 1290, respectively. Offering a variety of sizes, there is a CP pneumatic breaker option for every application.

“The CP handheld pneumatic breakers have traditionally delivered an efficient and powerful solution for any demolition application,” said Gus Armbruster, product manager of pneumatic tools. “The new CP 1260 and CP 1290 have carried through the important features of previous models, but have incorporated a number of features new to the handheld line.”

The list of added features include: ergonomically designed handles to reduce operator fatigue, a streamlined, flatter profile for improved operator visibility, and new durable polyurethane front head springs that reduce wear and extend the life of the breaker and its internal components.

In addition to various features, the CP 1260 and CP 1290 offer even more power than previous models.

“The CP 1260 and CP 1290 have enough power to make them an ideal solution for a variety of applications,” added Armbruster. “By improving upon past models versus starting from square one, we are able to provide truly versatile, powerful, and efficient tools.”

Another key feature of the CP 1260 and CP 1290 breakers is that many of the components are compatible with previous generations of pneumatic breakers, so that if a problem should arise with the new equipment, repairs can be made quickly and easily.

About the CP 1260

At a little over 2 ft. (.6 m) long, and an operating weight of 63 lb. (28.5 kg), the CP 1260 is compact enough to transport to any job site easily. Delivering 1,300 powerful blows per minute (bpm), it also is powerful enough to handle a number of medium to heavy-duty applications, according to the manufacturer.

The CP 1290 weighs in at 81 lb. (36.7 kg) and has a length of 28 in. (71 cm), making this a powerful tool for its compact size. The CP 1290 delivers 1,100 bpm. The most powerful of the CP handheld line, the 1290 is ideal for heavy-duty demolition work.
