When it comes to breaking through concrete, asphalt, and other dense materials, there's no tool more effective than a breaker. Equipped with hydraulic systems, these powerful machines can easily smash through even the most stubborn surfaces. They are often used by construction companies and demolition crews to remove large chunks of material quickly. No matter the type of surface, our hammers will get the job done quickly and efficiently. United Rentals experts are available to help you find the proper hydraulic breakers for rent based on your jobsite needs. 

FAQs About Breaker Attachments

What is the difference between a hydraulic breaker and a hydraulic hammer?

  • Hydraulic attachments like hammers and breakers do similar things and have similar names, but there are a couple of key differences. First is the equipment the breaker attachment is designed for. Breaker attachments can fit on excavators, mini excavators, backhoes and Bobcats or skid steers. The second key difference is the breaker attachment weight. Heavier attachments have larger impact rates and can break stronger or thicker materials.

How does a hydraulic breaker work?

  • Different equipment requires specific breaker attachments. Breakers for excavators and mini excavators are used for concrete demolition or to break ground during jobsite preparation. Skid steer jackhammers are better suited for tight spaces but are also designed to break concrete.

How do you use a hydraulic breaker?

  • Proper use and handling of breaker attachments depends on equipment type and jobsite specifications. Operator skill is key to longevity and effectiveness of hydraulic breakers. Consult the owner’s manual or a United Rentals representative near you for breaker attachment operating instructions. To learn more about excavator operation, browse our courses on United Academy.
