Chain Breaker

Who sells the best chain breaker? Im not concerned with the price, just want quality. I make my living with Snap On Tools but they dont offer a breaker.

I use the HP Tools one. I have no complaints with it. It does the job i need everytime an makes it very easy. I have the HP Tools Heavy Duty Breaker an it works just fine. You really don't need to spend the extra on the HP Tools Heavy Duty Press. It might work better but i don't think its worth the extra money because they both do the same job an the Heavy Duty Breaker has not let me down yet an i've cut up probably 25 chains with it. It makes it very easy. Hope this helps...

Thanks for the info Grayracer. I have a motionpro now and its crap.

I have a very old one and still use anything to grind first to make it easy.

I am sure there are new one"s out now.

I would buy a Made in USA

So do I. I converted it to a master link press after I bent the third "new improved" push pin.

So would I, if there was one.

a bench grinder and a punch work great to (if ya feel like being cheap...like me)

Being cheap, I don't have a problem with. Scattering abrasive grit all over the chain is another issue, though.

ive never thought about that. but soak it in a parts cleaner afterwards and put the majority of the chain back in the bag when i grind

Kind of off topic here, but I am needing to replace the chain on my '07 and am not sure how to use one of these breaker tools, I've never had one before. The only time I've changed a chain was on my wifes old TTR-125 and I just used a 4-1/2 angle grinder and a punch like mentioned before.

I want to make sure I use the proper tools because I am going to go to an O-ring type chain and do not want to damage the o-rings. Can some one explain the usage of the tool or is it self explanatory once you have one in your hands?

It makes sense when you see one, and the Reginas come with an instruction sheet.

You don't need to worry about damage to the o-rings, the masterlink comes with its own o-rings.
