    Hi Ed,

    It's evidently used for rapid removal of materials such as masonry. See here:

    thanks Ken I have one wider thought, I have used it to break concrete but my concrete Hilti tool just has chisel type ends. I like the idea and could see doing the same with mine.

    Haha.

    I only knew what this was because I bought such a drill online once by mistake.

    Makes easy work 'jacking' through rock when I laid small foundation for a chook house (chicken coop I think non-Aussies called it).

    Well done Brightspark

    Was wondering what a skutch chisel does too. Great solution. Much better than using an ordinary chisel when chipping at concrete surfaces.
