Medium Weight Paving Breakers


RTEX is Breaking 2.0!

We have used scientific methods to improve efficienty and ergonomics in beaking equipment for 60 years.  The RTEX is the nexus of our efforts.

First of all the RTEX is 25% lighter, yet it has more power.  Secondly it uses 50% less air than a conventional breaker.  And thirdly, RTEX has stiff handles with vibration values comparable to machines with flexible anti-vibration handles.  These advantages mean you can save big chunks of both money and time.

Thanks to the unique piston design, the RTEX doubles the interaction time compared to ordinary breakers.  That means you can use an RTEX breaker and still match the breaking power of a much heavier breaker.  The efficient stroke mechanism radically lowers energy consumption.  A comparable TEX uses 34 litres of air per second.  The RTEX uses only 18 litres per second.  That save you money on fuel by allowing you to downsize on the compressor or run several breakers on the existing equipment.


  • Presion Breaking - The improved SOFSTART™ system helps you slowly release the energy of the breaker as it's needed.  It gives you perfect control when making crucial first cuts.
  • Double Up - RTEX is so clever it can cut your air consumption by half.  Get a smaller compressor or run two on one.  Either way you save money.
  • Piston Design and Interaction Time  - The long piston design gives more interaction time than a shorter conventional piston.  And with more interaction time for each bow, the power produced with the RTEX is more effectve for breaking concrete.
  • Less Vibration at the Source - The counter force when the piston moves downwards is constant due to the Constant Pressure Chamber.  This minimizes the vibration the operator is exposed to.  In an ordinary breaker the pressure above and below the pistion is constantly shifting in both places.  This adds to the machine vibrations.
  • Air Custions Protect You - Air cushions, above and below the piston, protect both you and the RTEX during operation.  As the piston reaches its end position air cushions are gradually activated.
  • RHEX - The Power Chisel - Less weight and vibration - the RHEX chisel is pecifically designed for the RTEX.  It maximizes the power from the the piston to the ground and it's also lighter than a conventional chisel, which makes handling easier.  The concave design facilitates transport of broken material in order to increase effectiveness, since broken material acts as a dampener.  The design also reduces the risk of jamming.

With the TEX P60 we concentrate on two key factors for demanding customer:  Performance and Reliability.  The TEX P60 is designed fron a one-piece, solid-cast housing, which eliminates the need for separate front heads, back heads, and side bolts.  This design means 30% fewer parts than in traditional breakers.  And fewer parts mean fewer breakdowns.

The focus for the TEX P60 is on high productivity when cutting softer materials like asphalt and therefore it has a high blow frequency.


  • Balanced Performance  Great balance means high comfort and performance, without adding unnecessary weight.
  • Solid Body - The one-piece housing means that your machine will last longer and need less maintenance.
  • First Blow - The SOFSTART™ function is the breaking equivalent of a surgical tool.  It makes the first blow a joy.
  • Silence The slim polyurethane silencer cuts noise by up to 75%.  And its designed to stay out of sight
  • HAPS is More Business The anti-vibration system HAPS means you will have seven times more trigger time than with a conventional machine.
  • Smooth Breaking To keep breaking smooth and effective, the piston turns on air cushions
