What is a Digger Breaker?

Mini Excavator - Digger Breaker

A Masterhitch digger breaker is a powerful, precise attachment that is controlled by hydraulics. It is mounted directly onto various types of excavators, backhoe loaders and skid steers to break down concrete, rocks and hard surfaces.

It can also be used for the following types of work:

  • Demolition projects
  • Road repairs
  • Quarries
  • Groundbreaking work

Our digger breakers are developed to endure even the toughest of environments. Whether that is on a demolition site, or splitting up large rocks on a quarry site. 

What is a Digger Breaker used for?

The primary use for a digger breaker is to break down and break through concrete, rocks and other hard surfaces. Above all, they are seen a lot on demolition sites, especially when building structures are involved. 

Breakers are a great choice for breaking ground, in a safe and efficient manner. Although most attachments are versatile, if used incorrectly it could cause a lot of damage. A digger breaker would also be a great attachment to use for tasks including but not limited to tarmac cutting, any foundation work and trenching.

The cylindrical design of the digger breaker is beneficial for any construction sites with restricted access or limited space. 

What are the advantages of using a Digger Breaker?

Why should you pick a digger breaker over any other excavator attachment? Just a few advantages that you could benefit from include:

  • Low stress level on machinery – Using a robust attachment such as a digger breaker will take most of the force when breaking up material Therefore the machine will last longer
  • Using a digger breaker will ensure your machinery will be time efficient and productive. This particular attachment is light to operate, and will not weigh your machine down
  • Due to being fitted with hydraulics the attachment is very powerful and hard wearing
