that's a good one for demo, digging, scaling, chipping and much more...

next tine you need a hole in the ground..

use the spade or wide chisel bit to break up the ground and then clean the loosened spoil out of the hole w/ the shop vac...

a deep hole in short order...

you'll never touch a post hole shovel again...

thanks

I'v dug lots of  drainage ditches deep as my waist  and holes too.  IT's been my miserable experience to  just happen to encounter  all the really, really big rocks necessitating that I just dig them up too. I think they know what I'm planning and spend weeks migrating through the soil to get right in my path.

I considered that this tool might let me drill the rocks enough so's I can bust em with my forged iron bar.

drill a line of holes and use an iron wedge...

use a demo chisel....

keep in mind that you are on the low end of the demo hammers...

there's some really ferocious demo hammers in the Bosch line up...

you can take a major shortcut by drilling a few holes in pattern and using Bentonite, Shalom or Dexpan to split the rocks...

Bentonite, Shalom or Dexpan are expansive clays...

use plan ''B''... that'd be Wedge and Feathers.... they gotta be the oldest and still one of the best ways to split stone/rock/granite...

they come in small, medium, large and extra HD/tough/gimme me some room here for granite......
