VC 2000. The V Cutter.

A brand-new way of trenching and quarrying.
Epiroc introduces the new V Cutter. Simplicity prevails.   With its V-shaped design, the latest drum cutter from Epiroc sets a new standard in trenching and quarrying. A seemingly simple solution with an extraordinary effectiveness – enabling energy savings of up to 40 %. In a world where advanced technology evolves in an unprecedented pace it feels reassuring that some revolutionary product development is self-explanatory.

How would you feel about digging a trench without having to go side-to-side to make it even? And save time, money, the environment and your carrier while doing so? Sounds too good to be true. Not with the new V Cutter.

 

The reliability, robustness and ease of use of our drum cutters have been taken to a new level. Placing the drums in a V-shape enables a cut with a flat base – no material is left untouched between the drums. This means you can dig a more accurate trench much faster. You work this drum cutter like you would a bucket, just go straight. No more zig-zag. The energy and time savings are substantial. It’ easier to operate and friendlier for the carrier. In the long run, taking reduced downtime and maintenance into account, it’s also a very good investment.
