Concrete Breaking, Cracking, & Seating and 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
