    Does anyone have a good source for a used concrete pulverizer for a 200-300 size excavator? I don't really want to buy a new one they seam to be kind of high priced for what they are. Looking for a cheap way to break up some old concrete so I can reuse it for rip rap and other things. I keep watching the auction sites but haven't spotted one yet. I am not really in a hurry.

    I never specifically looked for one but I don't recall ever having seen a used one for sale. I don't think anyone ever gets rid of them as they sure come in handy. They are certainly expensive to buy new also. I wonder if one could be rented with or without a machine. A lot of rip rap could be processed in a month.

    We use a make shift wrecking ball with the excavator .

    Can grab & drop it with the thumb on flat work or rig it with a 12' choker for busting walls .

    Low tech will win every time when it comes to bustin up concrete . :D

    Demolished an old swimming pool last week . Took the excavator & Ford tractor to the job .
