Default Seal Kits from Epiroc (atlas copco)

Hi All ,

It's been a long time since I posted here .Just a concern of mine , maybe some of you have experience with this problem and can give me some feedback .

If any of you service regularly Atlas Copco/ Krupp / Chicago Pneumatic / Epiroc hydraulic breakers, In these last 18 months -24 months , did you experience any premature deterioration of the seals ? It seams that the seal material quality is not as it used to , the worst one being this last one , just 20 hrs in and the Nitrogen seal got all flaked and one of the top pressure seals consumed. I have been servicing these breakers for 25 years , and i never recall such a short period of service time , in the last months i got a couple , 4 weeks , 3 months , 6 months . I would at least expect 12-18 months from a kit , I mean at least 30 hrs weekly work. With careful owners , and frequent oil changes , we had breakers with even 4500 hrs of service .

Thanks for your feedback .
