They’re the ideal power tools for the toughest of breaking jobs, and we only supply electric breakers from top brands like Hilti and Bosch so you can be sure you’re only receiving concrete breakers of the highest quality from us.

Our models range from 5kg for light jobs up to 30kg for larger projects that require more power. Here’s a quick guide to a few of the most popular concrete breakers we supply!

Petrol breakers

We have a range of powerful petrol breakers available to hire. They’re the perfect choice for a range of demolition jobs like breaking concrete, cutting asphalt and tamping and compacting materials. Our petrol breakers are extremely versatile machines which can be used in external locations where obtaining electricity is not available, and because they’re stand-alone machines that don’t utilise cables or hose, there are no potential tripping hazards to worry about. It’s worth mentioning though that petrol concrete breakers should only be used outdoors in well ventilated areas as the fume produced by the motor can be toxic.
