Small chipping hammer
 
I am looking for a small chipping hammer mainly for tile removal. I was looking at the Makita HM0810B and other recommendations?
I already have a much bigger Bosch just looking for a smaller one.

I just bought this on the recommendation from someone on here for busting a small slab in a house. It worked well for that but with the sds tile chipping bit it worked fantastic for removing tiles.

Hilti TE7C

You would be surprised on how much balls it has...
I've used it to break out 3"+ of thinset and it never got hot.
Much easier to handle than the next bigger equivalent

I'll second this.

That Bosch has 1.7 ft/lbs of impact energy according to the website. It's a rotary hammer for drilling and some chipping. I would use a dedicated chipping hammer like the Makita HM0810B you listed. It has 5.6 ft/lbs of impact energy. That means hitting harder and getting the work done in my eyes.:eek:

I'm on my third Bosch bulldog, mainly using it for chipping tile. When number 3 started to go I rented makita, 9 # chipper. Man o man what a difference, next job I need a chipper, i'm getting a makita. Much much better.

I too Use a Bulldog (the original) you can chip single tiles off back splashes (the xtream is not quite as controlled at the gentle end, if that makes sense) and the extra leingth over the compact style TE 7C helps when you want to use as a pry bar. I use it 3-4 hours a week and they last 4-5 years before the hammer blows its seals and you have to replace. I run a Mak SDS MAX for larger removals


These are the 2 chisels to have

I have a Metabo and hitachi sds plus chippers. Both are good. I use the Metabo more for removing tile. Does an excellent job.

May get this one, comes with free side grinder. My plumber has the same one and he has no issues.

Man that's a sweet deal, I guess maybe its time.
