MHB Badger Breaker®

Download Spec Sheet

The MHB Badger Breaker® is a rubber-tired, self-propelled multi-head concrete pavement breaker which carries 1,200 to 1,750 pound hammers mounted laterally in pairs with half the hammers in a forward row and the remainder diagonally offset in a rear row so that there is continuous breakage from side to side. Each pair of hammers is attached to a hydraulic lift cylinder which operates as an independent unit, develops between 1,000 and 8,000 foot pounds of breaking energy depending upon the lift height selected, and cycles at a rate of 30 to 35 impacts per minute. The 8-foot wide machine carries twelve hammers 8 inches in width. A wing, carrying two 1,750 to 2,000 pound hammers, can be added to each side for a total breaking width of up to 12.5 feet. Due to individual control of each lifting cylinder, breaking can be as narrow as 2.67 feet or increased in increments to as wide as 12.5 feet. The typical production rate per MHB is 1 lane mile per shift when rubblizing and 2 to 3 lane miles per shift when breaking for removal.
