Choosing a Paving Breaker (Jackhammer)

Paving Breakers are T handled tools made to run vertically and break up rock and concrete or cut asphalt. Unlike the smaller tools which differentiate their power based on the bore and stroke of the tool – breakers are sold by the weight class. The classes are generally close to the actual weight of the tool itself ranging from 25lb class to the big 90lb class tools. To determine which tool is best for you - you want to determine what work you will normally be doing with the tool. Generally speaking – a 40lb breaker is good for 4” concrete, 60lb for 6” and a 90lb for 9”. The tradeoff here is weight vs ease of use. A lighter tool will be easier to handle but you will have to handle it for a longer period of time.
