The Atlas Copco CC 6000 is designed for carrier units in the 127,870-pound to 187,390-pound class. With the same features as the other Atlas Copco CombiCutter models, the CC 6000 is the heaviest with a service weight of 14,330 pounds. The CC 6000 designed for heavy duty industrial, bridge and building demolition jobs.
Available with either universal jaws (U) or steel cutting jaws (S), the CC 6000 features two movable jaws with two main hydraulic cylinders, designed to provide consistently high crushing force throughout the entire operating cycle. The combination of a single- and double-blade jaw arm is designed to provide maximum stability even under extreme loads.
A central main pin, designed to provide additional stability, supports the cutter jaws on the CC 6000. The pin with Atlas Copco’s Coupling and Positioning System (CAPS) is designed to reduce the time needed to change the cutter jaws by up to 75 percent. CAPS allows both cutter jaws to be fitted or removed as one unit, which is intended to make it easier to change the jaws on site. The crushing teeth and cutter blades also can be turned around for additional use or replaced on site.
“Our research suggests that about two-thirds of the operating cost of an attachment is incurred from operator cost, service and maintenance, and only one-third by the initial purchase,” said Kevin Loomis, Atlas Copco Construction Equipment, business line manager. “With the new CC 6000, we have greatly simplified the associated maintenance and reduced the required labor time.”
