"In my line of work I've hired loads of breakers SILTI, Bosch, Hitachi etc This one matches all with its sheer determination, weight, and rugged ness. Local hire shop was out of breakers so got this. It made mince meat of a very large buried lump of concrete 4' across by 3' deep. It was so good we finished the job with half a day to spare. WOULD RECOMEND THIS TOOL ANY ONE. Stop faffing and buy it !"
"Very good breaker has the right weight to use on level or near level ground, breaking out fence posts etc. Only used a few times so far but had no problems in breaking very solid concrete, only issue I have is the second hand grip has to be really tight to stay in position"
"This thing is incredible. I use to work as a fitter in the hire industry and know breakers inside out literally. This performs as well as a £700 machine in my opinion. Plenty of guts, will bust up most slabs.
Not a criticism but if you need a light breaker this is probably not suitable, I would consider this a heavy breaker!"
"Had this breaker a year now and it's excellent! chews threw anything to date thickest concrete has been 300mm reinforced slab. Never had any problems with it, bits are very hard wearing and the case it comes in is pretty tough. Only downside is that the hammer action is so hard hitting that it makes it difficult to use on anything vertical such as a wall etc as it kicks off the wall. Would recommend to anyone in the trade it's a bargain"
"This is a fantastic bit of kit for the money. Obliterated 30 sqm's of 6"concrete in no time. Its heavy its robust and its powerful. I think this will suffice for about 90% of the jobs people need a breaker for - yes there are more powerful examples, but whats the point in spending all that extra money for power you dont need - this will do the job for a fraction of the cost.
"I needed to break up a concrete floor, 7 metres X 4 metres X 100 mm. I looked at the prices of well known makes of breakers & decided to go for this one as it was a fraction of the cost for the same specification & had a 2 year warranty. So what if it broke I'd take it back. It really worked well & did not break anything apart from the floor.."
"I have broken hired breakers through over use so was dubious how this would last - not disapointed. Impact force is about right, especially doing horizontal and elevated breaking - any more and you wouldn't keep the pressure on. Broken about 4cu meters of concrete and the only thing worn out are my arms and legs! Great value tool, already paid for itself and I have far more work for it."
"Bought this breaker as a stop gap as my kango failed......very impressive piece of kit for a paltry 150.00 QUID.....Did the job without fail, more a serious diy breaker than a pro. bit of kit , but what more can you expect for a 150.00 quid and IT COMES WITH A 2 year guarantee.......cheaper than renting a breaker for a week and its 240 v. I was so impressed I bought the sds hammer drill and although it only cost 70.00 quid I was not disappointed good quality serious diying tools."
"This tool is great. It pays for itself in the first job and I don't know why I haven't bought one sooner. I first used it on 50sqm of 5 inch concrete, which it went through like butter. The second job was on 9 inch concrete again once again it flew through it. It doesn't vibrate too much through your hands either but wear so rear defenders as it soon gets deafening. All in all it is fantastic and a definite must have."
"Have got 200 post holes at 600mm deep to dig in a very well compacted hardcore/stone car park and i mean very well compacted (its all old building rubble etc) ,needed a bit of help read plenty of the reviews on here about this and thought well yes it sounds too good to be true but we will give it a go . WHAT a bargain ,should have bought one months ago . This breaker does what it is supposed to do it BREAKS stuff up.Yes it is a bit on the heavy side its a heavy duty breaker ( it says so on the description) which is great as it means you dont have to put lots of pressure on when using it , The chisels are quite strong too, going through engineering brick,concrete,stone etc no problem.This breaker has probably paid for its self in 2 days by the amount of time we have saved , and to hire one when you can buy at this price is a no brainer.As you can see i cannot praise this tool enough ,and if the worst were to happen in the next few months hey ho take back to the excellent SCREWFIX and get another, although it does come with a 2 year warranty anyway.Whats not like??. At £169.99 its a steal ."
"thought id try this breaker out as I needed to hire one anyway and thought it was worth offsetting the cost against the hire cost.im a builder and will use breakers such as this 3 or 4 times a year and must say im more than happy with it .its already completed two jobs and almost covered its cost already.its heavy so would be hard to use overhead or waist height for any length of time but packs a punch when working lower. Bit fiddly when packing away as the handle needs to be disassembled but I can live with that. Overall a good tool for an excellent price"
"Perfect for most jobs and only about the a third of the cost of other manufacturers. Really easy to use and smoother than I expected. Just remember to always wear safety glasses, ear defenders and steel toe-cap boots! Very strongly recommended."
"Have used this breaker a few times already and so far it lives up to the hype. For the price, I haven't found anything that comes close. The supplied chisels aren't the best quality but do the job, although the do blunt and pit very quickly. The actual breaker feels good and solid with plenty of weight, which is what is needed for a breaker. It handled very strong foundation concrete mix without any dramas. The handle seems ok, haven't had any problems with it working loose as some other reviews have stated. But I would guess you would have to be careful not to over tighten. Agree with some previous reviews that the switch lock button is pretty redundant. Decent length cable as well. Overall a brilliant piece of kit. Have marked down reliability one star as I have only used a few times. But with a 2 year warranty reliability shouldn't necessary be an issue if you are thinking of buying. This type of kit is a must if replacing fence posts that have been set in concrete or postcrete. Saves time and bags of effort. Yes you can hire and if you only have one job to do then that may be the most cost effective way to go. But this is a great tool to have if you are likely to need to break through concrete more than once. One final note, absolutely do not use this tool without ear & eye protection. At 105db it is loud!!"
