The Boulder Buster is a non-detonating rock and concrete breaking tool that utilizes a propellant based technology. A pressure impulse is generated in the tool by a propellant filled cartridge. The pressure impulse is directed via a barrel in to an incompressible fluid column of water or is placed in a pre-drilled hole in the rock or concrete to be broken.

No blasting license is required and may be safely used in crowded areas with minimal noise.

Multiple use applications:

  • High spots in trenches for utility excavations;
  • Massive concrete structures demolition, with or without re-bar;
  • Large boulder excavation in areas where regulations and/or safety concerns prohibit use of conventional explosives;
  • Trail building, concrete form replacing, City, County and State Highway roads, streets & ditches.
