What breaker is right for me?
To help you select the right tool, it’s important to ask yourself the following questions…
1. Where will I be working most of the time?
2. What base materials will I be primarily working with?
3. How long will I be working with each material?
4. What is the material's thickness?
When thinking about these questions, remember that breakers aren’t intended for drilling as there is no rotation of the chuck. Instead, the insert is thrust in a powerful hammering motion. This means that these types of breakers can be used to break up hard materials such as concrete.
The size of your demolition breaker will depend on what you’re trying to achieve. If you want to chip away at a standing wall, you should hire a smaller breaker that makes vertical breaking more manageable, for example our TE 500-AVR. Or if you’re breaking concrete floors or brick pathways, invest in something heavier like a TE 1000-AVR.
