"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!!"
"Doing property maintenance for a living, I have to replace a fair bit of fencing, which usually involves breaking out the old concrete which the posts have been set into. I've been hiring 110v breakers and transformers, and finally got fed up after having a dodgy transformer that kept overheating, meaning that for every 5 minutes breaker time I had an hour's wait for the transformer to cool down which properly knackered my day. So decided to bite the bullet and buy my own breaker, but even used Hilti's were coming in at £350, let alone £700 for a DeWalt. Couldn't believe it when I came across this Titan on the Screwfix site for £150 - the reviews all said it was the business and they weren't lying. Used it today on a job which the old fencer seemed to have mixed up a barrow full of concrete mixed with hardcore for every 75mm post. The Titan chewed it up and spat it out like a baby eating breakfast. I used it all day without it overheating or anything - no problems at all. Yes, it weighs a flippin` ton, but it's got some wellie behind it. The point and chisel supplied are well tough, and the point had no signs of wear at the end of the day's work. Its 230v, so no hassle with transformers either. And a 2 year warranty? If it dies after 2 years I'd just buy another one. Amazing value for money. . This breaker is the nuts. Should have bought one years ago."
"After reading the reviews on here I decided to purchase this for a few jobs I have to do around the house rather than renting a breaker. I must say, I am not disappointed. This thing certainly punches above it's weight and price point. I have even lent it out to a builder I know who is very impressed. For the cost of a weeks rental on a breaker I can now take my time and also use this for all those little jobs I would struggle with using a lump hammer and cold chisel because the jobs are too small to warrant renting one out.
An excellent bit of kit at an unbelievably low price."
"It was costing me £31 a day to hire a breaker I saw this and thought it was worth a pop so far I have used it 5 time and it has never missed a beat so in my eyes it has already paid for its self! comes with point and chisel cant really fault it as good as any Kango / Milwaukee I have ever used would recommend it to any trader 10/10"
"Wanted a breaker to go through base of an old swimming pool - looked to hire but then saw the Screwfix offer - no brainer really if it lasted ! Only worked it a few days over a period - still working and beats hiring. Be prepared - it is heavy to move around but that is a plus when breaking concrete - have to take out accesories to return to carry case and the 'permanently on' switch does get knocked to off too often - but overall a solid piece of kit that is great value for money."
"In the case it looks like plastic, it's not. This is a solid bit of kit. It seems from research this is actually an Erbauer design that's been picked up by Screwfix (Titan) and was sold by Erbauer for £100s of pounds more, Screwfix have "white labeled" it but have kept the 2 YEAR WARRANTY! Plus points - too many, but £150 is stealing it from them.
Negative points - The lock on button is irrelevant, you need to have it in contact with the surface when powered on to get that big hammer action otherwise it doesn't give you the big thump you need, otherwise it vibrates into the concrete (unless I've got a dodgy one). Effective but slow. - spade bit supplied is too narrow, needs another 40mm to work well. - Err....that's it.
Seriously, don't hire unless speed of breaking is very important and then you need hydrolic and a big budget. This will break through 150mm of concrete if you get the technique right and if the bit gets stuck (it will) just change bits and dig the bugger out - carefully!
It works, it lasts, its stupidly cheap and comes with a 24 month guarantee. Buy it or waste your money elsewhere :-)"
"I am not a professional builder just a home owner with the need to break up concrete areas in my front and back gardens. I maybe an OAP but via the web I know this is an amazingly cheap product compared to others and I needed more than an RDS for the job in hand.
It is not a lightweight tool but it certainly does the job, it eats concrete and at this price even if it fell over after I finish the jobs I want done, I would consider that I had my money's worth. But that said, I think it has a lot more going for it and I suspect the tool will keep going for a very long time."
"Can't honestly believe Screwfix have the price right on this one. My builder says it feels as solid as any Kango he has ever used. Its a chunky bit of kit and with a 2 year warranty for £150 - its awesome value!"
"just broke out a 50 mtr trench 300mm wide through 125mm of very old and very hard concrete, did it without missing a beat. this breaker has got some punch behind it, for the money and 2 year gaurantee you cant go wrong. we spend 4 times the amount each year hirering breakers sure this is going to save us a mount of money"
