With a wide range of rugged and reliable heavy rig-mounted hydraulic breakers and handled pneumatic breakers, Chicago Pneumatic has, for over a century, been at the forefront of the world’s demolition industry and is thus ideally placed to be one of the summit’s sponsors.

Now in its fifth year, the World Demolition Summit 2013 encompasses two separate events: the World Demolition Conference and the World Demolition Awards. The Conference will bring together international experts in the field of demolition, including speakers from the industrial and academic worlds as well as the media. It will feature reports on some of the most challenging demolition projects from around the world, along with papers covering more general topics relevant to today’s demolition industry. The 2013 World Demolition Awards will celebrate the best that the demolition industry has offered over the past year.

Chicago Pneumatic’s demolition range has recently been expanded, following the introduction of the brand new RX26, RX30, RX38, RX46 and RX54 heavy hydraulic breakers. Equipped with PowerControl Plus valves and a reinforced breaker box design, these rig-mounted breakers are ideal for heavy demolition as well as rock excavation and quarry applications. Besides the new RX models, the new CP1260 and CP1290 pneumatic handled breakers are used for heavy breaking in construction, plant maintenance and general demolition work.

Chicago Pneumatic also offers a wide range of versatile light and medium hydraulic breakers. Light breakers such as the RX2, RX3, RX4, RX6, RX8 and RX11 are mainly used for light demolition, landscaping, building renovation and road construction. The medium range, including the RX14, RX18 and RX22 breakers, is ideal for demolition, building renovation, road construction, rock excavation and quarrying.

In addition, the Chicago Pneumatic demolition range contains a variety of handled pneumatic and hydraulic tools, including paving breakers, pick hammers and rivet busters that are suitable for applications ranging from light demolition of floors to breaking heavy concrete. Chicago Pneumatic also provides a diverse range of robust and reliable generators and portable compressors that are ideally suited to power a variety of demolition operations.
