Concrete Wall Demo
 
Need ideas for what tools/equipment would work best to demo an old concrete wall. Its outside, but in a tight area between two homes. It has steel bars inside & concrete was made with beach sand many years ago so is now crumbling. Ideas? Must get down. Thanks!

Ayuh,... A jackhammer, 'n a hacksaw for the steel...

The mistake of using beach sand is actually a blessing when it comes down to removing the wall.

Rotary hammer with hamming only feature to use a chisel with! SDS plus might be to small! Get a spline or SDS max rotary hammer! Also Bosch makes a nice demo SDS plus hammer that is small but packs a nice punch! It is model no 11320vs chipping hammer!
