October 2015

Chicago Pneumatic (CP), a leading international construction equipment manufacturer, has unveiled its Red Hawk range of motor drills and breakers.

With three options available, the new range is suitable for roads, railways and drilling applications, providing users with a range of rugged and reliable breakers.

“The Red Hawk range introduces new compact and portable solutions to CP’s portfolio of handheld pneumatic equipment, which are suitable for applications where users change location frequently,” says Gus Armbruster, a spokesperson for Handheld Tools at Chicago Pneumatic.

“Equipped with a petrol-powered engine, instead of a conventional hose or power cable, the Red Hawk range provides users with the versatility and manoeuvrability ideal for busy or remote locations,” he adds.

The Red Hawk Road is the most powerful breaker in the new range offering high impact energy and weighing only 22 kg. Designed for concrete and asphalt breaking and cutting, the unit delivers enough impact energy to handle silica-rich rocks and reinforced concrete. An additional tamping shank allows users to repair potholes and surface damage, making the Red Hawk Road ideal for infrastructure applications.

Suited specifically for use on and around railway tracks, the Red Hawk Rail, meanwhile, facilitates fast, efficient tie tamping. By offering a higher frequency with less impact energy, the Red Hawk Rail ensures that minimal damage is done to track ballast. Thanks to the portable nature of the complete Red Hawk range, users can exit an area quickly without hoses and cables getting in the way.

Completing the range is the Red Hawk Drill, which offers a combined drill and breaker, ideal for light service applications such as rock splitting, fencing work and digging into hard or frozen ground. With a range of different working tools, from cutting to breaking and driving, the Red Hawk Drill is a universal tool that offers users working in remote locations a suitable alternative to existing drills and breakers.

With 11 shank options and a trolley or carrying harness, Chicago Pneumatic has a range of accessories designed to make the Red Hawk range as versatile as possible, says Armbruster.

Since 1901, the Chicago Pneumatic has gained a reputation for high-performance tools and equipment designed for an extensive range of applications. It offers a wide range of pneumatic, hydraulic and petrol-driven equipment, portable compressors and generators, light towers, rig-mounted attachments, and compaction equipment for the construction and demolition industry. With a global network of distributors, Chicago Pneumatic provides customers with worldwide sales and service support.
