In our 30-plus years in construction, we've run into just about every kind of situation these tools were meant to handle. So for this test, we used them on a variety of demolition projects to see how they'd perform under different circumstances, from busting up commercial floor slabs to carefully chiseling grooves into vertical concrete surfaces.
