    Who make a good one? Who does not? Anything to look for or are they all pretty much the same?

    Finally, how do they perform in granite. I have some boulders that I can't handle with the 334 and 773 and nothing else fits in this job site.

    I've been happy with the Cat 750lb Breaker.

    Cat's breakers are awesome, lots of impact power with less oil flow requirement than Boobcrap's so called "hammers".
    I was side by side with the 305CCR and our hammer and a 753 with a Bobcat "500 impact pound" yesterday, I was getting far more production out of my hammer in 6" concrete. I was doing 100 square feet every 5 minutes, he was only capable of doing 1/3 of that.

    The Cat hammer is the sandvik rebranded you will get a better deal looking at sandvik.

    No idea who makes the Erskine Quick Attach ones?
    I can get a good price there, just wondering if its the thing to do.
    It is a 4 hour drive to rent one, but I sure would like to seehow it does in rock.

    Have you got a Deere dealership near you?

    The Deere brand hammers for the skid steers are made by Stanley, they are also very good, our mini Hitachi has one that was originally a Thomas, then before it was rebuilt, we bought all the lower bushings at our Deere dealership and the parts guys said their hammer was the same model.

    The Deere/Stanley 500lb. breakers that I've used seem to be well built and hold up good.
