The Chicago Pneumatic lineup of light hydraulic RX breakers are utilized in light demolition, landscaping, building renovation and road construction. The smart design of the RX hydraulic breakers features few components and only two moving parts that offer a high grade of availability and reliability. RX breakers are amongst the most silent breakers on the market due to the RX recoil absorbing concept and the polyurethane insulated breaker box system, says the company. Chicago Pneumatic features a light, medium and heavy hydraulic class. The light hydraulic offers the RX2, RX3, RX4, RX6, RX8 and RX11, which range from 1- up 15-tons in carrier class.

With just two moving parts and low recoil, the new hydraulic hammers from Case Construction Equipment combine innovation, efficiency and “accumulator-free” technology for consistent and reliable performance on the jobsite, at less cost to the customer. In the cushion chamber, every blow is isolated from the carrier and operator, while energy is recycled and used for the next blow. The long-stroke piston is the most efficient design for energy transfer and recoil reduction, and Case hydraulic hammers come with a gas recharge kit and a three-year warranty that’s the best in the industry, says Case.

The Loegering Eliminator is a non-hydraulic attachment that has no moving parts and is the most cost-effective landscaping rake in its class, says Loegering. It was called the Eliminator because it “eliminates” the manual labor of edge work as it is low profile and operators can push material right to an edge. Its teeth are designed to loosen tough soil. With the Eliminator, operators can go from an uncleared lot to a finished seedbed with one attachment. It is ideal for use along driveways, walks and curbs. Multiple sizes of the Eliminator attachment are available to fit an operator’s needs: 42, 72 and 84 in. For more info, visit loegering.com.
Kage Snow Removal System
Make snow removal the most profitable service you do. The Kage for skid steer snow removal triples the productivity of a snow bucket or pickup truck, according to the makers of Kage. It is two tools in one — a plow blade plus a containment box/pusher. While pushing, the Kage box can angle, oscillate and has down pressure to its cutting edge. The pusher box detaches from the blade in five seconds without leaving the cab. Start by backdragging or windrowing with only the Kage blade, then grab the Kage box and push the snow on out of there. It comes in lengths from 6 to 10 ft. For more info, visit kageinnovation.com.
