New Chicago Pneumatic Breakers Offer Enhanced Operator Comfort, Power

Updated Sep 28, 2010

WESTFIELD, Mass. – Featuring an advanced vibration reduction system, the new CP 1210 handheld breaker series from Chicago Pneumatic Construction Tools offers several innovative features to enhance operator comfort and tool control, as well as increased power to match the performance of heavier breakers. The 35-pound class breakers are ideal for light-to-medium demolition of floors, pavement, frozen ground and masonry walls, as well as various other service jobs. 


Thanks to an improved valve system, the new CP 1210 series provides 20-percent more hitting power than previous models. Each series model requires 59 cfm of air and delivers 1,400 blows per minute. The breakers are offered in three versions basic, silenced and vibration-reduced and a variety of shank sizes are available to accommodate all applications. For easier operation, breakers equipped with 1-1/4″ and 1-1/8″ shanks have had their operating weights significantly reduced. 


In addition to a higher power-to-weight ratio, the CP 1210 breakers have undergone extensive ergonomic upgrades to allow for increased operator productivity. A new teasing throttle considerably eases operator stress at the start of a breaking or cutting job, even in difficult conditions. In addition, an improved swivel coupling now allows swiveling action even when pressurized, providing maximum maneuverability when needed most. The swivel accepts standard claw couplings with 3/4″ thread. 


The vibration-reduced models offer more comfortable handles and a system to reduce the negative effects of vibrations on the operator. Also, an upgraded silencer on the silenced and vibration-reduced models greatly reduces noise levels from the breakers. 


A piston with lubrication grooves has been added to the breakers to simplify maintenance and increase the service life of the tool and its components.
