Quiet Rock Splitter

Brokk introduced the C20 Rock Splitter. Manufactured by Darda, it is a safe and quiet alternative to explosives and hydraulic breakers, the company reported. The C20 Rock Splitter quickly breaks large boulders and solid rock in mining and shaft sinking applications as well as cross passage work in tunneling. Users drill a 3-in.-diameter hole into the rock with a separate attachment before inserting the splitter. The attachment expands with as much as 1,800 tons of force, splitting the rock.

The C20 Rock Splitter comes in four models: two vertical options ranging from 64 in. to 72 in. long; as well as two horizontal options, from 70 in. to 83 in. long.
