Skid Steer Breakers

Skid Steers Are The Best Machine For Breaking Concrete

The weight of the host machine is the most crucial component in concrete breaking. Given that skid steers are heavy with a low and close center of gravity, they are the best host machines for operating breakers.
<br>
<br>
Breaking concrete requires applying pressure over a small area. This pressure is measured in pounds per square inch (PSI). You may require around 5,000 PSI to break concrete (<a href="https://www.concretenetwork.com/concrete/compressive-strength-psi.html" target="_blank" title="different concrete " rel="noopener">depending on a few factors</a>).
<br>
<br>
If you have a 9,000-pound skid steer with a 1,000-pound breaker attachment and a chisel tool that has a surface area of 1.5 square inches, your pressure per square inch is 6,666 PSI.
<br>
<br>
Although the hammering action of a hydraulic breaker is essential for breaking concrete, it will only add a small amount of additional PSI. For example, a 1,000 foot-pound energy class will only add an additional 600 to 700 PSI.
<br>
<br>
Therefore, putting a big hydraulic breaker on a small host machine won’t break concrete. But putting a hydraulic breaker on a skid steer will break concrete all day long.

Skid Steer Concrete Breakers

There are a handful of good reasons why you should use your skid steer to break concrete on the job site. Not only does a skid steer provide exceptional visibility for the operator when using a skid steer breaker attachment, but the low and close center of gravity helps you deliver the hardest hit possible.

Check out our skid steer concrete breakers and see for yourself how much faster you can get your next job done.

Operator Visibility When Breaking Concrete

A skid steer offers the best operator visibility when breaking concrete. The chisel tool generally stays within about 10 feet of the skid steer operator, allowing for fine-tuning and small corrections during the breaking process.
<br>
<br>
In our opinion, being able to easily see the chisel tool also helps to reduce operator fatigue when operating a loud and aggressive attachment.
