1. Is it hard to use a jackhammer ?

No ! On the contrary it is quite simple. In order to use a jackhammer, first the appropriate safety equipment must be warn, including safety glasses, gloves, steel toed boots, eat protection and a dust mask. Secondly make sure an appropriate high voltage extension lead is attached with no abrasions in the wiring. Finally the machine can be started, using the on/off switch and handle trigger to begin vibration; a firm footing must be maintained in order to keep balance and protect yourself.

The prices to hire/ rent a medium jackhammer over a 24 hour period ranges between $70- $100, with the price fluctuating depending on the hire services, delivery costs, extra attachments (e.g. tile removing tools) and the length of the rental period (e.g. $220- $370 weekly pricing).
