BXR Series Hydraulic Breakers

The 5,000 to 16,000 ft lb new generation BXR Series Hydraulic Breakers manufactured by BTI offers an outstanding power to weight ratio, and an exceptional oil regeneration system. This system is designed for harsh, continuous duty and demanding rock breaking applications.

Some features and benefits of the BXR Breaker are:

  • Two speed power controls (slow/hard for big/hard rock, fast for efficiency as rock breaks down)
  • Oil regeneration system increases blows per minute while maintaining the same energy
  • Constant blow energy and recoil absorption via a high volume nitrogen charged accumulator.
  • Achieve optimized impact energy and blows per minute, with the extra-long stroke pressure balanced piston combined with an efficient oil regeneration system.
  • Optimal impact energy with the BXR button nose piston design. Anti-blank fire interlock protects the front head and retainer pins

Sizing the BXR Breaker for a mobile carrier


Model     Weight of mobile carrier in metric tonnes

The working weight of the carrier should be significant enough to form a stable unit with the breaker mounted, but also light enough to prevent overpowering the hammer when raking and maneuvering material. Once you find the applicable carrier options, you can check the hydraulic systems capabilities.

BX Series Hydraulic Breakers

The 400 to 4,000 ft lb new generation BX Series Hydraulic Breakers manufactured by BTI produces stable high-speed percussion, as well as exceptional value and durability for all rockbreaking applications in mining construction, and demolition.

Some features and benefits of the BX Series are:

  • Improved production with a breaker mounted manual high / low stroke selector (BX8-BX40)
  • High level of constant blow energy, due to a long stroke piston design, and anti-blank fire on/off selector (BX8-BX40)
  • Optimal sound dampening (BX6-BX40) creates less noise
