Delivery to building construction project site
In March of 2018, a Furukawa hydraulic breaker, the Fxj225, was delivered to a construction site in Quezon City in Metro Manila in the Philippines. The customer for this hydraulic breaker was a developer in Philippines, one of the largest construction companies in the Philippines. The Fxj225 is being used to excavate bedrock to prepare the land for building houses on a housing construction site operated by the customer. "The Fxj225 is much quieter and doesn't shake as much as the previous breaker we were using from another company," said an operator from the customer. "So at first we were worried that it wouldn't provide us with the power we needed. But after a while, we realized that this breaker was heads and shoulders above the others in terms of getting the job done." The operator was surprised how good a job the Furukawa breaker did considering its low-noise, low-vibration specs. He had always believed about breakers that the louder they were and the more they shook, the more power they had, and the better job they did—a belief that was shared by most in the Philippine construction industry. But the Fxj breaker smashed this theory completely. Operators working with breakers are subject to long hours of loud noise and heavy vibrations. Furukawa wants to create an environment where operators can concentrate better by alleviating some of the burden on them. Our breakers are made with this goal in mind.
