Splitters, just as their name indicates, are used in the
construction industry for heavy-duty breaking or
splitting of large rocks, stone and concrete. Hydraulic
splitters, as they are also referred to, were invented
by Edward Langfield in 1967 revolutionizing the
construction industry as we know it. They help you save
time, which in turn saves you money.
can fully control breaks in both rock and concrete
without vibration, noise or dust associated with larger
and more cumbersome paving breakers, impact rams
and hydraulic chisels. Rock Splitters also work
exceptionally well in close quarters where these other
machines cannot access due to their sheer size.

light-weight yet powerful tool operates at 7100 PSI
hydraulic pressure with an unbelievable splitting force
of 413 tons. A break usually occurs in a few seconds for
most materials and up to 60 seconds for the toughest of
materials. They can outperform even the largest

hydraulic splitter is powered by a 10,000 PSI pump. The
power unit and rock splitter are connected with a pair
of high and low pressure hydraulic hoses.
The cylinder contains a control valve and a piston that
moves a plug between two feathers. The plug and feather
end is placed into a drilled hole. The plug moves down
between the two feathers forcing them against the wall
of the hole. When the tension increases beyond the
tensile strength of the material, a split will occur.
The entire operation of the cylinder is controlled by a
single lever on top of the tool. The plug can be
advanced and retracted with this lever. An automatic
built-in valve reduces pressure after break.

Rock Splitter Performance Tips
and feathers MUST be lubricated before startup for peak
performance and to keep the feather from breaking. Make
sure to request a can or two of Elco Lube Paste. For
best results, apply Elco Lube before every split.
Pre-drilled holes, necessary prior to inserting plug and
feathers, should be exact diameter length and straight.
Pre-splitting is both effective and quick reducing the
time behind the unit.
