Choosing the Right Size Breaker for Your Carrier

Choosing the proper size breaker to handle the job starts with the material to be broken. A larger breaker is typically better suited for really hard or thick material because it has more power to handle the material and can do the job faster. There is no universal industrial standard, but the size of the breaker can be measured by weight ratio, impact energy level, working steel/piston diameter and more.

The proper match can ensure equipment efficiency is optimized while also protecting the breaker itself. Ultimately, the size of the attachment will depend on the size of the carrier.

FRD USA has developed a carrier compatibility guide as a quick, easy reference to properly align the FRD breaker and carrier. You simply select the carrier type, then choose the carrier manufacturer from a dropdown menu and finally select the carrier model from another dropdown menu. The guide does the rest, generating a list of the FRD USA hydraulic breakers that are compatible with that specific carrier model.
