Conclusion

A Beast Power!

it’s not often when a tool far exceeds the expectations. This tool is great. I had six 3’x3’x18″ holes to dig for footings for a patio cover that I am building. Not only did this tool make it possible to quickly dig through decomposed granite and hard clay, but it also allowed to chip away about 6″ of an existing concrete footing that was interfering with the new footing placement. I also chipped out a 24″x24″ hole in my 3″ thick existing patio for a footer that was within the existing patio boundary.
Although this isn’t the right tool for demolishing large concrete areas, it is ideal for smaller jobs that involve chipping away concrete or digging through extremely hard dirt. The lightweight makes it possible to use horizontally as well as vertically, which is very useful.

The smooth startup and lack of any major vibration make it possible to use for extended periods of time without tiring. The only complaints are that there aren’t longer digging blades available. A digging blade would significantly reduce the need to bend over when digging holes.

Makita electric jackhammer was a perfect tool for the job, It was amazing! The variable speed was great; I only needed speed 3 for my job. You can remove all the tile and the cement-based skim coat for a 14×10 master bath and demolish a 3×4 tile shower stall down to the studs. You can enjoy using it and wish to do more. 

Very durable and efficient, Contractor grade equipment. An internal component called ‘BRUSHES’ needs changing after months of heavy use.

Conclusion

Perfect for demolition!

You can hammer to break up the deck of the old swimming pool. This machine ate 6-inch thick concrete effortlessly. A very nice feature is that you can dial down the blow rate so it can “gently – comparatively” remove material next to things you do not want to destroy. Great Demo Hammer. Very strong blow power for the weight, heavy enough to break tile, light concrete, no problem for this hammer with 2″ tile bit. A rented thinnest scraper to remove thin-set, not a problem either.

The only complaint is that digging around cemented-in posts, you must pull the bit away when you hit cement otherwise a good tool for drilling cemented areas.
