salvaging brick

hi neighbors

im gonna add to my existing 1 car garage, and the exterior on the side to extend the garage is brick.

im trying to figure out the best method to remove the brick, saving as many as possible.

i have brick chisel, but wonder if a ??electric chisel??, or something along that line would speed up the process.

the area is 30' x 9'.

ideas appreciated.

We use a SDS Shank Hammer Drill Chisel Attachment for our Bosch Hammer Drill.

This attachment is in the $30 -$40 range but really is a time saver!
