Attaching the chisel to the hammer is a breeze, involves turning a lever to open, sliding the chisel in and turning the lever to lock. Prior to using the jack hammer, I had to fill the oil reservoir according to instruction. As the 10cc of oil included with the purchase appears to be bare minimum, I supplemented until the entire reservoir was filled. The jack hammer works as described and more. Labelled as made in China, this jack hammer appears to be heavy duty. I would not be surprise if a jack hammer contractor employs this tool in his daily work. Compared to the nearly $900 dollar jack hammer from Bosch, Milwaukee or others, this jack hammer is a bargain. For a homeowner such as myself, who occasionally needs a jack hammer, purchasing this hammer more than fits the bill as I was able to demolish all my concrete slab within two to three hours. I awarded 5 stars rating because I couldn't really fault this jack hammer at this price.

With regard to the fried motor - I was prepared to put in a new one, but could find nothing on the internet.
With all of the above in mind, I actually plan on buying another one. I attribute the failure to abuse... the failure could have been avoided. However, if I had another large project, I would rent an industrial grade jack hammer (which is what I had to do to complete the project). The hammer is well constructed, but the motor is light duty...
Hope this is helpful.
I read all of the reviews of this, and similar demo hammers. Some of the feedback was obviously taken seriously, and a packaging engineer hired to ensure survival of the tool during shipping - mine arrived in excellent shape. That being said, the plastic bottle of gear oil leaked, and converted the lube into a messy corrosion protectant...a trip to the hardware store to purchase some gear oil and the oil reservoir was filled, and the tool was ready for work.
This isn't the all powerful, 150 lb pneumatic jack hammer that you see being used by construction workers, but it is very effective if used with some knowledge. The most useful bit of the two included, the pyramid bit, is essentially a 35# wedge, and is effective if used as follows: 1) Make sure the edge or corner that you are working has a "free" surface - when the wedge plunges into the concrete, the chunk you're breaking away will need somewhere to go - it won't easily push adjacent concrete, soil, etc. 2) Start on a corner if possible, and use the point to make some small, 1-inch deep impact holes (these are stress risers - they don't need to go completely through the slab) spaced 3-4 inches apart, making a semi-circle 8-12 inches from the corner. 3) For the final impact hole, angle the point slightly toward the edge of the slab, and keep going until the corner piece cracks off. 4) Repeat as necessary to break up the slab.Read more ›
