What is Hydraulic Hand Crushing?

The handheld concrete crunchers are a two-man operation. The power pack runs off electric, and in most cases three phase power. The concrete crunchers will effectively crunch up to 300mm of reinforced concrete walls and slabs, working very well in conjunction with the sawing and wire sawing techniques. The cruncher is a relatively quiet proces...
