Rated 5 out of 5Â by Stilldigging Good solid bargain
I used this on some face bricks which had to be drilled out individually without damaging the surrounding bricks. Needless to say these were hard bricks which didn't give up easily. This machine did the job without wrecking the rest of the house. I read the reviews before buying and I would have to say they are all good although I didn't have any problem with the instructions as it worked without needing to read them and the bits didn't get stuck even though I didn't use any grease. For Â£50 you will not do any better. It was so good that I might just buy another because good machines do eventually pack up and then you never find another one as good or so cheap.
My advice is - buy two The first will last a lifetime and the second will help if it isstill like hitting your head against a brick wall next time round!!

I was planning to hire a breaker for the day to smash up the front of a 9inch concrete slab ready for garage conversion.
As this was a similar price and I really wanted to do the job gradually over a week or to I decided to try one of these bad boys.
I can't comment on it's performance compared to a dedicated breaker, but with the supplied point chisel the drill made light work of the concrete.
The one downside is that I now have a taste for demolition, no concrete is safe....

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Omega1 Not good
Bought this bit of kit after reading the reviews. It's task was to remove 2 rows of brick on a concrete floor in a plant room,previously used as a support for water tank, approx 3 mertres long the depth of 1, yes that's 1 brick in height all on a mortar base. I wasn't expecting a lot ,but come on, I was pretty sure it would be capable of that.
Nope it lasted all of 20mins. I even gave it a 10 min rest half way through the first row of brick, but it completely died as soon as it started Chiseling the second row. Good Luck..
