Use only short run time (a maximum of 15 seconds), then move hammer and choose new angle of attack. If the tool heats up, allow the tip or cutting edge to air-cool.break.
Avoid too much play between chuck bushing and tool to prevent tool breakage or damage to the chuck bushing.
Use a gradual approach to breaking up material section by section.
Operate your breaker only after having positioned the demolition tool on your work surface. Stop hammer immediately when the material breaks up.

Apply proper grease at least 4 times daily to make sure the lubricating film does not break.
The correct strike position should be a 90 angle to the work surface. The shank, chuck and carrier should form a unit.
Tool reconditioning:

Dull tips or edges or damaged tools can be reconditioned with milling, planing or lathing.

Failure due to:
Typical failure caused by misalignment between down pressure, hammer, and tool
(prying, levering).
Breakage due to improper contact between the tool's tip and rock or concrete.
Mushrooming or fast wearing caused by operating too long on the same spot, or too small a breaker on too hard a material.
Failure due to blank firing or
excessive wear of bushings
and/or chuck housing.
Failure due to opperating in one spot to long and overheating the nipple of the tool. The nipple than expands off the top of the tool. 15 second maximum run time in one place.
Fatigue breakage with typical
fatigue wrinkles due to steel defect.

Proper Maintenance Key to Hydraulic Breaker Life, Performance
Published  06/11/2007
As tough as hydraulic breakers are, they still demand a crack maintenance program to keep them hammering away. All hydraulic breakers, regardless of design or manufacturer, have the task of shattering, cracking or splitting material. The assignment isn't exactly gentle on the equipment. Wear and tear is an outright certainty, so maintaining the breaker is vital to keeping it running at peak efficiency.
Breakers will eventually fail after years of service, but the life cycle and performance of a given unit can be greatly enhanced through proper maintenance, which can be viewed from three separate perspectives: routine maintenance by the contractor, periodic rebuilds by the manufacturer, and preventative maintenance features within the breaker itself.
