General Equipment Company Offers Bitty Breaker Manual Impact Breaker
Published: 10/10, 2022
General Equipment Company’s model 102 BITTYBREAKER™ is a manual impact breaker/tamper designed to provide a simple, inexpensive alternative to jackhammers, sledgehammers, pick axes and other tools. Compatible with a multitude of industry-standard jackhammer tools, the hand-held BITTYBREAKER offers a powerful impact energy to effectively break concrete or frozen ground, cut asphalt, tamp dirt, chop roots, or remove ceramic tiles and brick pavers.
Featuring a lightweight, thin barrel design, the BITTYBREAKER weighs only 21 lb (9.5 kg) and has a Posi-Grip handle for safe, comfortable operation. The internal piston and barrel are constructed of solid steel, helping the tool produce an impressive force of up to 1,450 lbf (1,966 Nm) of energy per blow. An operator can typically complete 10 to 20 blows per minute, depending on the rate of work. A spring-assist tool retainer is included to help prevent damage in the event of a dry fire.
To help it perform a wide variety of jobs, the BITTYBREAKER accepts tools that have a 1.125-in (28.8 mm) hex shank, including those from competitive manufacturers. Several chisel/spade accessories are available directly from General Equipment. An integral tool retention system on the unit helps prevent the tools from falling out during use.
