Safety Warnings and Precautions
WARNING: When using tool, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of personal injury and damage to equipment.
Read all instructions before using this tool!
1.
Keep work area clean. Cluttered areas invite injuries.
2.
Observe work area conditions. Do not use machines or power tools in damp or wet
locations. Don’t expose to rain. Keep work area well lighted. Do not use electrically
powered tools in the presence of flammable gases or liquids.
3.
Keep children away. Children must never be allowed in the work area. Do not let them
handle machines, tools, or extension cords.
4.
Store idle equipment. When not in use, tools must be stored in a dry location to inhibit
rust. Always lock up tools and keep out of reach of children.
5.
Do not force tool. It will do the job better and more safely at the rate for which it was
intended. Do not use inappropriate attachments in an attempt to exceed the tool capacity.
6.
Use the right tool for the job. Do not attempt to force a small tool or attachment to do the
work of a larger industrial tool. There are certain applications for which this tool was
designed. Do not modify this tool and do not use this tool for a purpose for which it was
not intended.
7.
Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry as they can be caught in moving
parts. Protective, electrically non-conductive clothes and non-skid footwear are
recommended when working. Wear restrictive hair covering to contain long hair. Wear
steel tipped shoes when working with the Breaker Hammer.
8.
Use eye, face and ear protection. Always wear ANSI approved impact safety goggles.
Wear a full face shield if you are producing metal filings or wood chips. Wear an ANSI
approved dust mask or respirator when working around metal, wood, and chemical dusts
and mists. Always wear ear protection. Hearing protection is required for any other
persons in the work area.
9.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. Do not reach over or

10. Maintain tools with care. Keep tools sharp and clean for better and safer performance.
Follow instructions for lubricating and changing accessories. Inspect tool cords periodically
and, if damaged, have them repaired by an authorized technician. The handles must be
kept clean, dry, and free from oil and grease at all times.
11. Disconnect power. Unplug tool when not in use.
12. Remove adjusting keys and wrenches. Check that keys and adjusting wrenches are
removed from the tool or machine work surface before plugging it in.
13. Avoid unintentional starting. Be sure the Switch Knob #87 is not depressed when not
in use and before plugging in. Do not carry any tool with the switch depressed, whether
it is plugged in or not.
14. Stay alert. Watch what you are doing, use common sense. Do not operate any tool when
you are tired.
15. Take caution as some woods contain preservatives such as copper chromium
arsenate (CCA) which can be toxic. When cutting these materials extra care should be
taken to avoid inhalation and minimize skin contact.
16. Check for damaged parts. Before using any tool, any part that appears damaged should
be carefully checked to determine that it will operate properly and perform its intended
function. Check for alignment and binding of moving parts; any broken parts or mounting
fixtures; and any other condition that may affect proper operation. Any part that is damaged
should be properly repaired or replaced by a qualified technician. Do not use the tool if
any switch does not turn On and Off properly.
17. Guard against electric shock. Prevent body contact with grounded surfaces such as
pipes, radiators, ranges, and refrigerator enclosures.
18. Replacement parts and accessories. When servicing, use only identical replacement
parts. Use of any other parts will void the warranty. Only use accessories intended for
use with this tool. Approved accessories are available from Harbor Freight Tools.
19. Do not operate tool if under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Read warning labels
on prescriptions to determine if your judgment or reflexes are impaired while taking drugs.
If there is any doubt, do not operate the tool.
20. People with pacemakers should consult their physician(s) before using this product.
Electromagnetic fields in close proximity to a heart pacemaker could cause interference
to or failure of the pacemaker.
21. WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and
other construction activities, contain chemicals known [to the State of California]
to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these
chemicals are:
- Lead from lead-based paints
- Crystalline silica from bricks and cement or other masonry products
- Arsenic and chromium from chemically treated lumber
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work.
To reduce your exposure to these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and work
with approved safety equipment, such as those dust masks that are specially designed
to filter out microscopic particles.

22. Maintenance. For your safety, maintenance should be performed by a qualified technician.
23. Use proper size and type extension cord. If an extension cord is required, it must be of
the proper size and type to supply the correct current to the tool without heating up.
Otherwise, the extension cord could melt and catch fire, or cause electrical damage to
the tool. See the chart below for appropriate extension cord size. Longer extension
cords require larger size wire. If you are using the tool outdoors, use an extension cord
rated for outdoor use (signified by “WA” on the jacket).

are without a collar). Figure 2 shows installation of a chisel
with a collar.
Without a Collar:
1.
Pull the retaining ring to the side just far enough to allow
the bit to be inserted, as shown in Figure 1.
2.
3.
Insert the bit. Slide the chisel in as far as it will go.
Pull the retaining ring down approximately 120° until it
contacts the housing. Physically check that the chisel is
secure before operating.
Note: If the Chisel Bit doesn’t slide in easily, apply some grease
on the loading end of the Chisel Bit.
Retaining
Ring
With a Collar:
1.
2.
3.
Pull the retaining ring open about 30-40° to the second
engaging position as shown in Figure 2 .
Insert the collared chisel.
Return the retaining ring to close to its original position
to lock the chisel in place. Physically check that the chisel
is secure before operating.
Figure 2
Before each use, check the Chisel for cracks or other damage: Never use a damaged Chisel.
Make sure you only use sharp tipped chisels.

Operation (continued)
Warning!! Always wear ANSI approved impact safety goggles. Wear a full face shield if you
are producing metal filings or wood chips. Wear an ANSI approved dust mask or
respirator when working around metal, wood, and chemical dusts and mists. Always
wear ear protection. Ear protection is required for any other persons in the work
area.
Warning!! Be aware of flying concrete chips. Keep all spectators clear of the work area.
Warning!! Do not operate this tool if you have back, neck, wrist, or other conditions or injuries
that will be aggravated by the severe jerking forces that this tool exerts upon its
operator.
Warning!! If the Breaker Hammer ever gets out of your control, immediately release the Switch
Knob (87).
Note: Use the weight of the Breaker Hammer to help you break up concrete. Use the tool in
the vertical position whenever possible. This tool was intended to break up larger pieces of
concrete.
IMPORTANT - READ BEFORE USE
This Breaker Hammer may have decreased performance for a brief period at the beginning
of each use. This warmup period lasts approximately 3-5 minutes. This happens because
the grease inside the tool may be somewhat thick, preventing the tool from operating at full
efficiency while the motor is cold. This is perfectly normal and does not indicate a problem.
To help reduce this effect, we recommend storing this equipment in temperatures no lower
than 50-60° F.
Chipping a Straight Line
1.
Use chalk or another suitable writing material and mark you work surface to delineate
the area you intend to hammer.
2.
Plug in the Breaker Hammer.
3.
Grasp the handles firmly with both hands. When you are sure that no people or animals
are in the vicinity, and it’s safe to begin, depress the Switch Knob (#87).
4.
The Breaker Hammer will begin to break the top layer of concrete. If you push down, it
will begin to break the next layer as well.
5.
Keep moving the Breaker Hammer along the line you want to section, breaking concrete
as you go. If the Breaker Hammer jumps off of the line or section, release the Switch
Knob (#87) and reposition the Breaker Hammer.
6.
When you are finished, release the Switch Knob (#87) and unplug the Breaker Hammer.
Breaking up Concrete.
1.
Place the bit on the center of a piece of concrete.
2.
Grasp the handles firmly with both hands. When you are sure that no people or animals
are in the vicinity, and it’s safe to begin, depress the Switch Knob (#87).
3.
As you break the concrete into big chunks, release the Switch Knob (#87) and move to
other large pieces until all of the larger pieces are broken. Do not try to break up smaller
pieces with this tool as it is too powerful and aggressive to control on small pieces.
4.
When you are finished, release the Switch Knob (#87) and unplug the Breaker Hammer.
