Should be, walls should be nice and straight.

Bauley throw a pic up of the space you plan to do, should be easy and level of skill will depend on the tile you select and the space.

he's putting in a new NBA spec board right behind this so he had to get rid of all of it

the old pole had 1/2" rebar in it (you can see in the picture) so there was no cutting more than what I already did (he had a 3" blade on a sawzall ????)

no, you have a 6’ pry bar

it’s ya know, a mechanical advantage

literally haven’t used a jackhammer to break up concrete in 10 years. I dont even know what people use them for other than roadways.

Pry up concrete off it’s dirt setting, smack the **** out it with a sledge, it splits, lift out pieces. Jackhammer takes all ******* day and is back breaking and you’re left with all these iddy bitty pieces.

A standard 4x4 concrete sidewalk I can have in pieces in a wheel barrow in 5 minutes. That thing I’d probably have it done in 30 minutes. I’m well aware you guys were chipping away at thing all got damn day with the jackhammer.

That pry bar is heavy enough that you can jam it right into the concrete like a african spearing an elephant

maybe itís bigger than I think it is, but just never come across something so big I needed a jack hammer. Always found a way to pry it out of the dirt and break it up.
