Gorilla (Tech Hydraulics) proudly owned and operated family business since 1931 - Only quality hydraulic equipment.


The one man operation of On the Level Construction & Excavation Inc., owned by Kim Bresnick, is crushing apporximately 15,000 tons (13,608 t) of granite a week at Fletcher Granite, a century-and-a-half old quarry along acres of bills on Groton Road in Westford, Massachusetts.

To break the rock, Bresnick uses two big Gorillas. Gorilla Hammers, that is; a 12,000-lb. (5,443 kg) GHB175 on a Link-Belt LX460 and an 8,000lb. (3,629 kg) GHB155 on a Link-Belt LX330.

I love them! Bresnick said of his Gorillas. I was shopping for the biggest, baddest hammer they made for the Link-Belt LX460 excavator. I spoke directly to Bob Tedesco (owner of Gorilla Hammers) three or four years ago, and told him, I want the biggest hammer youve got. It weighs about 10,000 lbs. And the Link-Belt 460 LX weighs about 105,000 lbs.

After hundreds of thousands of tons of rock, the hammer still keeps on drilling like the day he bought it, he said.

Its working great, added Bresnick. Weve got 3,000 hours on it and it hasnt skipped a beat. Then, we have a LX330 Link-Belt with a 8,500-pound hammer, and that one has over 3,500 hours on it.

Bresnick chose Gorilla Hammers because with literally tons of rock at the ready for crushing he needed tools that would last; something like the one-man operator himself.

"No short cuts." This is the mantra that has catapulted Tech Hydraulics's attachment division, Gorilla Hammers, from a vision to a major contender in the hydraulic hammer and attachment market.

"My father started the family business in the 1940s by repairing gas pumps and other petroleum delivery equipment. My big brother took over at the age of seventeen when my father passed away suddenly. He expanded products and services to offer hydraulic and pneumatic sales and repairs to the automotive, industrial and mobile equipment markets. When my brother Joe left in 1979 to pursue a career in auctioneering, we incorporated as Tech Hydraulics and continued to expand product lines and services in response to the demand of our customers."

Tech Hydraulics Expands

New England Construction Magazine, 2003
Larger facility, staff, product lines and services mark operations as 25th anniversary nears.

Tech Hydraulics, known to contractors, public works officials and industrial customers for its design, manufacture and servicing of hydraulic components, has forged dramatic changes in its operations in recent years to accommodate demand and marketplace conditions.

As the company approaches its 25th anniversary, founder Robert "Bobby T" Tedesco reflected on some of the transformations that have taken place since he established Tech Hydraulics in Quincy, Mass., in 1979.

"We had six employees working in a 5,000-square-foot facility in Quincy, and we simply outgrew it because of increasing business volume," he said. "We moved to this 15,000-square-foot shop and headquarters in Randolph about four years ago, and since then have doubled our staff to meet the needs of customers. We've also acquired some new lines - notably, RockBlaster hammers, Gorilla tool bits and Hyundai construction equipment."
