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 pounds (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 foot-pounds (1,966 N.m.) 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-inch (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.
