Love the jack hammer but didnt get informed I would have to sign for it
31 July 2013
Summary: As most of you I work for a living and didnt know I would have to be at home 10 -5 to sign for this thing and was a pain to catch up with the ups guys and ended up getting it late even though I paid for next day.
Summary: As a tool rental tech for Home Depot, I have learned that this wonderful piece of equipment suffers from one major defect. The handle where the switch is located is poorly designed, resulting in constant breakage. This is not only dangerous, but also impedes job completion. Sure, you can return the tool and get another one, but what a waste of time and money. Home Depot completely stands behind their rentals but Makita needs to modify or improve this right now.
Summary: This hammer has been very useful for the project that I'm doing (breaking out a rockwall footing. It weighs about 90 lbs. so it isn't easy to lift, but that's what's needed to break rock and cement. It's electric so no compressor is needed. It was about $200 cheaper than Home Depot and it came with 2 pointed and two wedge chisels as part of the package.
Summary: This is a great buy, I have used this for a job to remove a swimming pool, removed large rocks as well. My workers used this tool for eight hours a day for 3 months. It is still on the job. I would recommend this to anyone who needs a heavy duty machine, at some 90 lb you need to be strong. I would buy it again.
