How to break the concrete for basement shower drain?


I already had the rough in for the shower when I moved in. I have yet to see a shower that will work for the spot that they put it though. I need to cut out a little section about 1 foot by 6 inches to modify it. I don't even think I would need to go down all the way through the concrete. Is there anyway to bust it out without scoring (cutting) and jack hammering it out? I really don't want to rent that crap for this small of an area.

Ayuh,....

I'm sure you Could do it with a Chisel,+ a BFHammer,.....

Personally,... I'd rent the electric tools if I didn't already own'em...

If you have a hammer drill, some masonry bits, you could try outlining your section, after drilling holes very close together, use chisel and hammer, piece of cake, not.
