Excavator breaker action shot

Blue Diamond offers the best hydraulic breaker for skid steers and excavators on the market. Absolute superiority is the only way to describe our breaker! Before offering a hydraulic breaker, we conducted 5 years of thorough industry research to fully understand unmet industry needs.

Our Quest to develop a breaker that would satisfy these needs drove us to extremes. And we now offer a simple breaker at the cutting edge of technology with both reliability and ease of set up. All of this with our industry standard service support!

Hydraulic Breaker areas of Focus

We focused on several different aspects to make sure that our hydraulic breaker would have the maximum durability possible.

  • Not having to adjust flow and pressure of host machine to match the breakers needs
  • Removing the notorious tie rods that break often and replacing them with the Monoblock design. This design makes reliability that is second to none.
  • Quickest rebuild time in the industry (average 30 minutes) simple enough for anyone to complete!
  • Protect the expensive Monoblock design with sleeves to drastically reduce costs in the event of damage.
  • Totally remove the back pressure concerns so prevalent in the competition.

With all of these investments, we consider our hydraulic breakers masterpieces! Simply put, each Blue Diamond hydraulic breaker will outlast, outperform, and provide the highest ROI of any breaker!

Hydraulic Breaker for Skid Steers with a Monoblock Design

We opted for a Monoblock breaker design. What exactly does this mean? Monoblock refers to the housing in which the piston operates. Our housing is one piece and doesn’t use any tie-rods to hold it together like the majority of other breakers on the market. Tie-rods stretch and often break causing massive destruction to the breaker. Monoblock housing avoids these common problems!

Monoblock housing is also very expensive if damaged and many breakers that use monoblock housing do not take any precautions. Repairing any damage can cost almost the same amount as a brand-new breaker! However, Blue Diamond includes sleeves inside the housing that surrounds the monoblock housing. These sleeves prevent damage and are much cheaper to replace!

Ease of Operation

The Blue Diamond Hydraulic Breaker has a simple design and is easy to use and service! While operating the breaker on the right size machine, you will not need to adjust the flow or pressure! Industry leading components control incoming and outgoing flows to specified amounts making your job easier!

Servicing is easier than ever before with no re-gassing needed. You can remove the accumulator as an entire assembly and isn’t disturbed. Additionally, the energy recovery system keeps it from needing topped up!

As an added bonus, you don’t need to have this breaker serviced by a dealer for your 2-year warranty to be honored. Unless an oil leak develops, don’t take it apart at all! Just grease it up and keep making money!
