Indeco’s HP12000 – A Big Breaker Delivering Big Performance

Adding to their impressive line up of customers, Indeco Australia has just installed another two of their HP12000 rock breakers into the market.  Azzona Drainage and Armstrong Constructions have both added the giant hammer to their growing fleet of Indeco equipment.

For Azzona it will be their second HP12000 after recently purchasing one in March. In total it gives them 15 Indeco hammers all up. “We were so impressed by the performance of the first HP12000 that we decided to buy another one.” said Azzona Director Rob Di Giandomenico. “It has saved us a lot of time and money and hasn’t missed a beat.”

After operating in solid conditions for over 6 months, Azzona have not only been happy with the breakers performance, but also the back-up of service and support from Indeco. Bruce McWilliams, Managing Director of Indeco Australia has ensured that their high standards are maintained.  ”Before we add any breaker to our range we always make sure we have the back up in place to comprehensively support it.” said Bruce. “We have a number of service vehicles operating and as with our full range of products, we offer a 100% guarantee that we will always have parts available.”

For Bill Armstrong, it will be his first HP12000 after running 3 existing large Indeco breakers. “We had a demo of the Indeco 12000 and were very impressed with what we saw.” Our existing Indeco hammers have always done the job, but the new 12000 will allow us to get a lot more work done, especially with deep trenching in solid rock.” said Bill.

Customers are constantly looking for machinery to get the job done quicker and more economically, therefore increasing the demand for bigger and more powerful excavators and attachments. The Indeco HP12000 is no exception, being the biggest hydraulic breaker on the Australian market today. Weighing 7.8 tonne, it stands 4 meters high, has a 215mm chisel, power rating of 18,900 joules and a strike rate up to 550 blows per minute.

Trying to break rock is nothing new and while the challenge remains to be more productive, the continual improvement of breaker technology and development will carry on.  New and improved features have enabled Indeco breakers, such as the HP12000, to work in applications where they previously would never have dreamed of before. With the productivity and field proven success of Indeco’s HP12000, we expect to see many more start operating throughout Australia.
