Wacker Neuson’s EH 75/240 electric breaker is the only 240 volt electric breaker available in the United States. Using any construction grade 3800 watt portable generator, the EH 75/240 with an integrated inverter converts single phase to three phase power ensuring that each time the tool hits the concrete it delivers a consistent hard blow, according to the manufacturer.

The EH 75 is designed for the professional contractor. It is lighter, quicker and powerful, providing an efficient breaker of concrete for a variety of applications. It weighs only 57 lbs. (25.8 kg) and hits with 55.2 ft. lbs. (75 Joules). With the high percussion rate of 1275 blows per minute, the EH 75 offers a high power-to-weight ratio. This new tool can meet the performance of 60 to 70 lb. pneumatic hammers, but eliminate the need to tow a compressor. Wacker Neuson’s new EH 75 and a small portable generator can easily fit in the back of a pick up truck.

The EH 75’s performance and high breaking output is the result of new hollow piston percussion system with a rod striker and shockwave-optimized percussion system along with the high single stroke energy. Added to the performance, this new breaker has a full hood vibration dampening design that reduces vibration to the operator. The reduced vibration, along with additional vibration isolated handles and its overall lightweight, allows the operator to run the unit for longer periods of time, enhancing overall production, according to the manufacturer.

Because of the inverter, Wacker Neuson’s EH 75 can be powered by a brushless three phase motor and offers consistent power supply even when using a long extension cord. The inverter also protects the tool with an automatic shut off if input voltage is too low or too high, providing for long life and durability. By eliminating the traditional rotor and carbon brushes found on other models, Wacker Neuson has in effect eliminated the need for maintenance on this tool.

The only servicing required is occasional on-site lubrication. The EH 75 was designed for intensive use over long periods so it can be used to demolish large quantities of concrete, brickwork or asphalt as fast as possible, offering contractors or rental houses a new breaker alternative for their fleet, according to the manufacturer.
