This is by far the best demolition hammer I've purchased. It works flawlessly and has a lot of power. I like the feature that allows the user to increase or decrease the hammering blow. Very nice addition to my power tools.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Transplanted This Beast Will Chew Through Anything With Ease!!!
In my backyard patio, the flooring is just poured concrete laid down when we had our home built a few years ago. We wanted to go out of the "standard" within our neighborhood, and lay down some pavers giving the appearance of some class. The problem was how do I even start to get rid of the concrete, and what can I use to break it all up into manageable pieces? I stopped at the thought of sledgehammers and cold chisel's.
Along came this beast!
At 11 pounds, it's manageable to use, unlike other handheld demolition hammers weighing upwards of 20 pounds. Using an 11 pound hammer is just about right.
When I went to Home Depot, I bought both a chisel point, and a chisel bit to use.
When I got home I found the bits didn't fit, even though their SDS bits. Come to find out, there are 3 different styles of SDS bits available...SDS, SDS-Plus, and SDS-Max! Once I returned my purchase and bought the same bits, but SDS-Max ones, they fit within the hammer just fine.
Inserting the bit was effortless, and I simply love the fact that I have 12 different angles I can turn the bit at. This comes in handy when using a chisel, or scraper.
The hammer has a soft start feature which is great. Having this allows you to ensure when at the selected speed, it's not jumping all over the place. You can keep the bit on target easier before it's up to speed.
The thumb-wheel adjustable speed dial is a great feature. Not everything you may be removing is constructed of hard concrete. Using a lower speed with a tile scraper will ensure more success in removing tiles in one piece, whereas on full speed, this thing will chew up your concrete effortlessly.
Using this demolition hammer was a joy to use. I found that I wasn't "fighting" with the hammer the whole time I used it. This hammer also comes with an adjustable side handle. This handle is just as beefy as the hammer. It feels great in your hand, and assists in both balancing out the weight of the hammer, and assisting you in maneuvering the hammer around with a complete feeling of control. For what this hammer does, it really doesn't have an over abundance of vibration, and that's a good thing! I had my entire 15' x 15' concrete slab all busted up in about an hour. It took me longer to haul off the concrete pieces, than to bust it up. I don't even want to think about the time it would have taken had I resorted to sledge hammer and cold chisel.
This beast was definitely the proper tool for the job at hand.
With 8.4 ft. lbs. of impact energy, soft starting, and variable speed control, this demolition hammer is well worth the investment, let alone the time, and back busting labor it will save you in any demolition project you may have on your list.
Highly recommended product.
