Concrete Breaking, Cracking & Seating
Concrete Pavement Demolition

For breaking concrete, we use a Wirtgen guillotine type drop weight employing a 6.3 ton, 67 inch FREE FALLING WEIGHT with a maximum pick height of ten feet. This means our equipment can break thicker concrete more efficiently than any machine on the market.

How Wirtgen Works


Diagram shows drop weight as it is lifted and dropped on the surface during movement of the machine. The following factors are variable according to application:

  1. Distance between impacts: determined by vehicle speed and winch speed
  2. Force of impacts: determined by stroke height
