An electric rental breaker with contractor-level power at 35 foot pounds of impact energy, to break slabs or pads up to 10 inches deep. Great ergonomics and vibration control.
One of the most appropriately named pieces of rental equipment in existence -- the Bosch Brute! Pros and DIY'ers, alike put this powerful electric breaker hammer rental is what you put to work on demolition projects involving concrete driveways, patios or sidewalks.And at 63 pounds, it fills the bill for indoor work on foundations or basements -- and if you've been lifting your weights, can be very useful in breaking vertical surfaces. Wherever you put it to work, you can bank on 35 foot pounds of impact energy at 1,000 beats per minute. All of that power and you don't need a compressor -- just plug into standard electrical power within 50 feet of your project. Or if 115V power isn't available, run off a 15 Amp outlet to a 2500-watt portable generator rental.A nod to Bosch for improving this model, upping the power 50 percent while cutting vibration in half, with shock-absorbing handles reduce the pounding on the operator.

Yes, for a change, here's a powerful piece of rental equipment that can fit into just about anyone's trunk.
Make sure your jobsite outlets are up to date and on at least a 15 amp fuse.
Make sure you are no more than 50 feet from an outlet.
Proper safety goggles, ear plugs and gloves should be used along with steel toed boots.
Allow for proper ventilation if working inside.
DO: Wear eye, ear, foot and hand protection, and to be safe, double up on ear protection with safety muffs in addition to ear plugs. Especially when working indoors, wear a respirator or dust mask to keep from breathing in cement dust.
DO: When breaking up a foundation or working in a basement, determine if there are gas lines or metal pipes in the work area. If you're not sure, call your local gas utility to ask for an inspection.
DO: If only you're breaking up part or section of a slab, prevent cracks that run past your planned demo area by scoring the the perimeter of the section with a hand-held or walk-behind saw before you go at it with the breaker hammer.
DON'T: Don't try to use the breaker hammer as a pry bar -- it was built to exclusively pound straight ahead, not as a lever. Once the breaker bits heat up, it's possible to bend the bits by prying. You don't want to bring a damaged breaker bit back to the equipment rental shop -- replacement bits can be expensive!
