The amount of work accomplished using these methods depends on the hammer size, strength of the concrete, the amount of steel reinforcing used in the concrete, and working conditions.

Machine-mounted breakers are able to deliver a range of 100 to 20,000 foot-pounds at 300 to 800 blows per minute. Machine-mounted breakers may utilize:

  • A telescoping boom for easy reach and maneuverability
  • Remote control operation
  • Underwater demolition capabilities
  • Some limitations of machine-mounted breakers include the generation of noise, dust and vibration.
