Hyundai Construction Equipment Australia introduces a new range of breakers from Furukawa featuring a more compact and durable design with stronger performance.

Distributed in Australia by Hyundai Construction Equipment, the new Furukawa FXJ series hydraulic hammers raise the bar in terms of technology to enhance their performance features.

Hyundai’s Light Construction Market Development Specialist John Peagram describes the launch of the new breakers into the Australian market as a game changer. He explains that the Australian market has long recognised the quality and innovation of Furukawa breakers; the new range includes everything that is respected about the brand and takes it up another notch.

Thanks to the advanced technology in the Furukawa FXJ series, the hydraulic hammers display more breaking power, reduced noise and vibration, less stress and wear for the carrier equipment, long breaker life and lower maintenance costs.

The strength of the new generation of Furukawa FXJ comes from the elimination of the separate cylinder, front head and through-bolts, reducing the number of parts and their associated maintenance.

According to John, the mono-block design is lighter than the previous model, and delivers higher impact energy, which means that the power to weight ratio of the Furukawa FXJ series breakers has been increased significantly.

Key features of the Furukawa FXJ series hydraulic hammers include a new semi-automatic grease type damper system consisting of a large volume top damper reducing noise and vibration; new technology automatically adjusting the system to correct tolerances; patent-pending three-point dust control system preventing entry of dust into the hammer through the combination of a clean air intake system, a replaceable dust wall and a toothed dust trap design; improved piston design increasing contact area between piston and impact surface of the rod for higher power output; new greasing system for even distribution of grease to the thrust bushing, front bushing and rod pins; and new valve design decreasing resistance and heat build-up in the hydraulic fluid for improved efficiency.

The Furukawa FXJ hydraulic hammer range includes four models and suits excavators from 12 to 55 tonnes of operating weight.

The Furukawa FXJ series is backed by Hyundai’s leading parts and support network.
