Q:Is this tool a good choice for breaking up large limestone rocks? I recently hired a bulldozer to excavate dirt for a barn build site. There are many large limestone rocks average size 2 feet by 3 feet by 8 feet. I hope to break up the limestone rocks and use the broken rocks for landfill. What tool do your recommend?
A:Well, yes but also not really. The amount of time to chip those big stones down will be huge. Blasting, followed by big excavator mounted hammers, than air powered rock drills with metal aplitters (or expanding chemical) are #3 choice. Last choice would be these hammers. Mostly big stones laugh at hand held tools. They blunt and break bits and eat up man hours. If you have a lot of free time and can grind back and re temper bits, then break away. Good luck.
A:Yes, this is an excellent choice for limestone applications.
