Correct tools to rip out Asphalt

I am ripping up an asphalt walkway that comes off of my driveway to our house. I want to rip it up. Should I just rent a jackhammer and do it? Or could I rent a bobcat without renting the jackhammer? Do I need to rent any type of saw to cut the edge along my driveway?

bobcat or tractor is the right tool. I wouldn't mess with jackhammer, just peel that junk up.

Do you have a plan for disposing it? Pickup truck to take it to the dump? Bet you can't just put it out with the trash....


If I could only remember to THINK about what I was doing before I did it.

Short of cutting off a body part, the worst that can happen in woodworking is manufacturing really nice looking kindling. --- Quoted from lenaitch
