Busting up a boulder in your back yard isn’t any fun with a pneumatic hammer. But blowing it up? Sweet. Ezebreak’s Micro-Blaster II employs small powder-filled cartridges to break up smaller rock and concrete bits — without pissing off the neighbors or involving federal authorities. You don’t even need a license to use it!

But before you get to ‘splodin’ you’ve got to drill a hole or two — or more if you’re trying to make a seam — so break out your hammer drill. Then place place the powder filled explosives in the holes. Finally, set off the cartridges pneumatically via the kit’s blaster head safely from up to 25 feet away.

The kit includes a CO2-style tire inflater to provide the burst of air required to set off the boom, but Evebreak claims that even a bicycle pump will do the trick.

Of course, the main benefits of this system are speed and cost. Rather than chipping away with hand tools or buying/renting a jack hammer, you can break and remove rock and concrete from your yard, construction site, or farm with relative ease. But it sounds fun as hell, too. Check out the site below for videos.

The kit costs about $600, and replacement cartridges are available in packs for 100 for around $200.

    What, no one uses water soaked wooden wedges to split rock anymore?! These kids today have it way too easy. 😉

    Feathers and Wedges my man! the only way to break rock and don’t forget the star drill and hammer. all fits in a 5 gallon bucket.

    Better cracking through chemistry, Not limited to small jobs with Dexpan.

    Feathers and Irons – Score a line – Use a Roto hammer to drill a line of holes.
    Inset the 2 feathers – then the iron and start tapping all along the line. Or look at the saws they sell at Granite City Tools.

    sounds like bunch of guys that would spend a $100 and hundred hours of time to “save” $50

    There is a new kid on the block, SierraBlaster. I have used it. There is a video on their site showing it blowing up s*^$^ and some really big stuff (www.SierraBlaster.com )

    It does what that video shows, is waterproof, I have fired it on boulder 8″ underwater. It has an electrical inert detonator, and it is the first ever blasting system with an official ATF exemption letter from having to have a blasting license. I have also used an EZEbreak. You have to have a very high pressure air system to fire the EZE and airhoses, tanks etc.

    SierraBlaster has been on the market for about a year. The cartridges are more powerful than EZE and the drill hole is 10mm instead of EZE 5/16″ so SDS bits drill faster and last longer. Sierra Sells the SDS drill bits for less than you can buy 5/16″. One more thing its not limited, you can have 1,2,3 up to ten heads fire at same time. It costs less (under $700) and cartridges cost less too. There is guy that has written a review named Miner Rick with a mining association WMA. I just found the link plp1.org/images/WMA_DEC_2013_Newsletter_1.pdf


    And have talked to people who have used Dexpan, it works but they say it takes a day to work and a long time to drill many 1.25″ holes. It uses same principal as filling holes with water in freezing temps. Swelling clay I think.

      Whoops forgot to say to fire it any 110 volt generator or wall current works. So the same generator you use to run the drill will fire the cartridges. I fired 4 holes (at same time) with a 900 watt Harbor generator and drilled them with a $80 SDS drill. It has a trigger setup that plugs in to source and cabling, you get about 50 feet back and push trigger lever. have a friend that has one and he has backpacked in with about a 10 pound gas SDS for the hole and used battery blast box that weighs ounces. So can be used very portable and lightweight wise.
