9 JUNE 2022 WorldWide Drilling Resource® New V Cutter from Epiroc With its V-shaped design, the latest drum cutter - VC 2000 - from Epiroc is setting a standard in trenching and quarrying. This seemingly simple solution has extraordinary effectiveness, enabling energy savings of up to 40%. You work this drum cutter like you would a bucket, just go straight. No more zigzagging, going from side to side making a trench, the VC 2000 cuts with a flat base so no material is left untouched between the drums. The distinguishing features of the classic Epiroc drum cutters, like the robust spur gears, adoptable high-torque gear motor, and the QuickSnap retaining system for fast and easy pick changing, are all in the new VC 2000. It even comes standard with the Pro bracket, which leads all hydraulic hoses through the center of the extension arm and out of harm’s way. Mechanical and hydraulic rotatable brackets are also available, as well as a dust-preventing, water-spraying system. HATCON, a monitoring system which keeps track of operating hours, location, and service intervals then presents the data on virtually any screen via MyEpiroc, is another option that will increase the VC 2000’s overall effectiveness. "The efficiency issues connected with trenching have been met with advanced but expensive solutions. We’re pleased to present an alternative that will save time and money in virtually every aspect, from investment to energy and wear on the carrier. And it’s all achieved by the angles of the drum," said Gordon Hambach, global business manager for hydraulic attachment tools at Epiroc. For a link to this website, visit this page at:
