Armeg SDS Plus Scutch Comb Chisel
A real find
At first I was put off with the price, but so many good reports I had to try it.
I made a mistake waiting, this thing chews thru stuff so easy saves it's price on one job by the time saved.
Yes it does get hot but take a brew and it's ready again.

Knife through butter
Was looking for an alternative to a standard sds flat chisel and came across this, a little pricey but reading reviews thought I would give it a go. I was removing plaster from all my internal brick walls and it was night and day compared to the standard sds flat chisel. The teeth really help it get flush with the brickwork,didn't leave any bits behind and I would say it was twice as fast.also I really noticed a lot less vibration in the hands which enabled me to carry on longer.
I did experience the comb coming loose but it was after at least an hours use, just tapped it back straight with a hammer,left it for 10mins while I cleared up and went back to it.
Even come across some cement rendered patches and it took these apart too.

Think about continuous use.
I bought this to remove a horrible rough render on the front of a house that had been put over the original Tyrolean render. I had used normal SDS chisels before and they were OK but I was hoping this would be quicker on the really tough bits. To start with it probably was but as a previous reviewer has said, once it warms up, after about 10 minutes constant use, the metal jaw expands and the comb moves sideways and eventually drops out. Perhaps not really designed for my particular job.
It is indeed great for chasing channels once you've cut the sides with a disc, very quick and tidy.
