WEST FARGO, N.D. (February 2019) – Bobcat Company is providing demolition contractors a line of six new, powerful nitrogen breaker attachments covering all Bobcat® compact excavators, compact track loaders, skid-steer loaders and mini track loaders. The new Bobcat nitrogen breakers deliver powerful impact energy and are built to high quality standards with a simplified design that makes attachment maintenance easy. 

Devastate demolition jobs with the long piston stroke of the new Bobcat nitrogen breakers, while also experiencing relatively minimal recoil.  

"The Bobcat nitrogen breaker has the impact power customers want for difficult demolition jobs, like removing reinforced concrete slabs,” says Travis Kidder, Bobcat attachment product specialist. 

The new Bobcat Nitrogen Breakers have minimal internal parts, a single lower bushing and easily accessible grease ports. Each of these design features reduces the breaker’s maintenance requirements and makes rebuilds easier. The unique valve design of the breakers lessens hydraulic pressure fluctuation, which reduces stress on the carrying equipment’s hydraulic pumps. 

A loader X-Change mounting frame allows owners to transition nitrogen breakers from a compact loader to a compact excavator. This can be beneficial to customers who regularly change attachments between carriers. It’s also a popular feature for rental stores that rent breakers across a variety of compact equipment. 

Nitrogen breaker tools vary by model and include blunts, moils, chisels and nail points. Customers should consult with an authorized Bobcat dealership to confirm which tools are approved for use with Bobcat nitrogen breakers and carriers. 

The six models of Bobcat nitrogen breakers are available for purchase now at authorized Bobcat dealerships in the United States and Canada. Bobcat requires the use of a special applications kit when operating a nitrogen breaker. An optional water nozzle kit for dust suppression is coming soon.
