This was from a while ago... but I'll put it up to show the pics.

First off, I wanted to post some pics of the lot and some initial excavation work done. Also, the before and after of my rock-breaking attempts.

So, the rock-breaking worked somewhat. But, it was slower than I expected. Once I put the cracks in the rock with the MB-2, I found the most effective method of removal to be:

   1. Take a rock hammer and tap. Listen and feel for hollow spots. This means it might come off.
   2. Just use the SDS drill with a decent-size bit and kindof vibrate the split piece off.
   3. Put in some more cracks and repeat.

But, I purchased a longer drill bit (I had to special order) to make the cracks run deeper. We'll see what happens. It could turn out to just be too time-consuming even with the MB-2. I haven't given up hope yet, but if it saves a day or two of excavator time, it will still be worth it.

I sold my old house, so now the focus can be more on the new house.
