Break it up!

Published 17/5 at 13:06

Concrete, rock, pavement and masonry are pretty tough materials to deal with. And more often than not, it will not go quietly, or easily. That is why it helps contractors to have some extra muscle in their arsenals, efficient, reliable tools that will show that formidable inorganic foe who is boss, no matter what extra strength its builders, or nature, gave it. That is why everybody in this business loves breakers. Just as even the most self-assured professional fighters have respect for their opponents, smart contractors recognize that there will always be a new challenge that tests the mettle, and maybe metal too, of their machinery. Sure, they can get the job done, but with a better breaker, they get it done faster, more efficiently, and at a better price for both owner and customer. Jim Parsons reports on the latest breakers.
