FAQs
What is a concrete breaker?

A concrete breaker is a pneumatic tool designed to break up hard materials, like concrete, pavement and mortar. Traditional concrete breakers feature an excavator fitted with a hammer and are commonly used for demolition work. Need more help? Contact one of our equipment experts for further guidance.

How do air pavement breakers work?

Air pavement breakers are T-handle tools that operate vertically, intended to break up concrete and pavement. Pneumatic paving breakers connect directly to an air compressor, powering a high-impact chisel to break and drill through hard materials.

How do I break up concrete with hand tools?

Pavement breakers and other similar hand tools are designed to break up hard materials like concrete and rock. Our selection features air rock splitters, lightweight and portable tools designed to make concentrated cuts or splits in narrow areas, and air paving breakers, larger, hand-held breakers capable of breaking up slabs of concrete and pavement.
