Hurricane Concrete Breaker | Rocktec

By: Rocktec  06-Dec-2011

The Hurricane Concrete Breaker, designed and manufactured by Rocktec New Zealand, is a highly effective alternative to conventional concrete breakers. The Hurricane Concrete Breaker uses a broad, flat breaking surface that delivers maximum power and exceptional speed - up to 30 blows a minute - while maintaining extremely low carrier shock.

The Hurricane Concrete Breaker offers:

  • simple operation
  • minimal operator training
  • compact design
  • easy hook-up
  • low maintenance
  • low cost breaking
  • multiple carrier options.


The Hurricane Concrete Breaker has several important advantages over normal breaking methods:

  • Speed
    The adjustable drop height of the hammer weigh speeds up production in thinner concrete applications.
  • Hydraulic function
    The chain is hydraulically driven - the breaking weight is lifted and released, allowing the weight to free fall on to its target.
  • Low carrier shock
    Shock waves are dissipated through the patented skid system (and an internal backup shock absorber if necessary) leaving the carrier almost shock free.
  • Simple operation
    The breaking cycle runs automatically - the operator only has to manoeuvre the carrier so that each impact counts.
  • Cost-effective
    The Hurricane Concrete Breaker never has to be recharged and has a simple design with no high cost hammer points to replace, and no internal parts such as accumulators or pistons - hence no costly rebuilds.
  • Easy cleanup
    Traditional breakers punch holes in the concrete, requiring further breaking during the cleanup phase. The Hurricane Concrete Breaker thoroughly breaks the material from top to bottom, making cleanup simple and fast.
  • Multiple carrier options
    The Hurricane Concrete Breaker fits to skidsteers, excavators and backhoes, so contractors can choose the setup which best suits the application.
