The first phase in demolishing a concrete building is to cut and drop. This simply means to cut out sections as large as safely possible for efficiency and bring to the ground for processing. That is exactly what the 4TÉ CapStone Concrete Cutter is designed for. It has narrow jaws to cut through concrete rather than pulverise it and longer cutting blades for shearing steel at the same time.
Being German made and full of innovative features, this truly is an outstanding demolition attachment!
Such intricate care and attention to detail has been expended that even the geometry of the construction has been carefully calculated so that the crushing force is optimized by creating maximum leverage power at the point where the most force is required. The point where the most force is required for crushing concrete is hugely different to that point when cutting
metal. This is why a shear and a pulveriser cannot be incorporated into the same attachment and achieve optimum performance in both. But the Concrete Cutter has shear blades to accommodate mixed building structures with reasonable amounts of steel and concrete so you don’t have to change attachments.
• Tremendously high crushing force!
• Optimized crushing force by the geometry of the construction.
• Increased power to weight ratio, more power/reduced weight.
The open and close speed is crucial in demolition. One second in cycle time can have a big impact on how long it takes to demolish a building. So we’ve eliminated the flow restrictions right from the excavator to the ram producing a stunningly fast cycle time. Check out the features below:
• Extremely large ports through rotary coupling with significantly less resistance to achieve higher flow.
• Special bespoke speed valve installed.
• Large internal bore hydraulic piping through to ram.
Maintenance plays a crucial part in demolition efficiency – all our 4TÉ CapStone series attachments are designed with ease of maintenance in mind, reducing downtime and ensuring the product works harder for you.
• Replaceable wear parts such as crusher teeth and cutting blades can also be rotated to gain maximum use.
• Additional side protection on crusher teeth increases wear life expectancy.
• No ram bleeding required.
• Modular design – wear parts interchangeable across several models.
• Optional link up to central lubrication system on excavator for cylinder and main pin pivot.
• On-site replacement of wear parts possible.
Included in the design of this attachment are many little details, each contributing big benefits to the easy handling of this attachment. The saddle mounting has been placed at an angle for versatility whilst working at height or on the floor
• Low net weight.
• Bevelled saddle mounting for kinematics.
Our products are not just designed to perform brilliantly, but are also built to last.
• Wear parts made of highly wear resistant casting.
• New robust protection for the ram.
• Harder rod chrome.
• Better designed locking mechanism for wear parts.
• Ram rod and eye are one piece for lasting strength.
• New form locking innovative construction.
• Innovative construction ensures low pressure point which means reduced risk of fractures in construction.
• Extremely high flow accommodation.

"It’s a cracking piece of kit, wish I had known about them before. The amount of times I’m doing deep drainage, 5m deep, I used to use a ram axe with men down, but this is far better! Just put it on the end of a 360 or a backhoe. It’s brilliant!" Hired a compactor plate.North Midland Construction
"Fantastic that breaker! and the service. It's pretty tough concrete we're on here and it just smashed through it. The guy who delivered it was very diligent and trapped the breaker in for overnight, I really appreciate things like that. It was thoughtful."
Hired a breaker for a 13 tonner.
“Your kit is bang on, you’re onsite in a couple of hours. I don’t know anyone else that’ll come out 5 o’clock on a Friday night. Your secretary is polite, I get put straight through to the rental manager. All your onsite staff are polite. We’ve dealt with you for many a year.”
