2. Moil point chisel: suitable for hard stone, extra hard rock, and reinforced concrete excavation and broken.
3. Conical chisel: mainly used in breaking tough rocks, such as granite, and quartzite in quarry, also used for breaking heavy and thickened concrete.

When operating, the direction of the chisel and the excavator’s arm should be the same, and the chisel should be vertical to the rock surface. If the chisel is not vertical to the rock surface, the chisel may slip during work. When breaking, please adjust the chisel direction firstly, and then break the rock from the suitable hitting point of the rock under the stability condition.

Instructions for chisel operation:

1. The suitable downward force can improve the efficiency of the hydraulic hammer breaker.
2. The position of the hammer breaker adjustment – when the hammer breaker cannot break the rock, it should be moved to a new hitting point.
3. The breaking operation shall not be operated continuously at the same position. The the temperature of chisel would rise when breaking at the same position for a long time. The chisel hardness would be reduced to damage the tip of chisel, thereby the operation efficiency cut down.
