Mounted Breaker Manufacturers Bureau (MBMB)

Product Focus

AEM's Mounted Breaker Manufacturers Bureau (MBMB) conducts activities of interest and importance to manufacturers of mounted hydraulic breakers.

In addition, the Bureau maintains a Demolition Attachment committee to focus on issues and needs of the users and manufacturers of these products.


The MBMB addresses issues relating to operator/worker/bystander safety, a mounted breaker operator safety (best practices) manual, industry agreed measures for hazard reduction, matters relating to proper attachment to carrier interface with the systems of various brand carrier types and manufacturers, noise abatement, safety labeling and industry market data statistics programs.

Bureau Activities

MBMB developed and maintains a hydraulic breaker operator safety manual. The Bureau pursues worldwide harmonization of hydraulic mounted breaker noise measurement procedures.

Market Data Statistics Programs

The MBMB works together with the MBMB Statistics committee, which operates market statistics programs for six mounted breaker product size classes entering U.S. and Canadian markets.
