    Ha ha that brings back some memories, on the first farm I worked on I had to use one, I was like a cartoon shaking and twitching all over the place, weighed a ton as well.

    That thing with a suitably modified attachment might be what that woman off Mumsnet needs for her heavy duty trenchwork.

    I hate hydro packs! Rubbish compared to compressed air and so bloody heavy! How many fill ups with petrol? Thirsty girls those ones 🙁

    I think we ran it on and off for three hours, I didn’t check the tank level afterwards. They are unbelievably heavy. I carried into the site, by the end of the day I had to barrow it out.

    I’ve never used a pneumatic one before but I’d imagine you’d need a really big compressor to power one.

    No just a normal towable compresso, they’ve just got much more thump and speed. Hydros are great for jobs like that tho where there isn’t much access etc. Theres a knack to rolling the hoses up as well when you’ve done so they sit just nice on top of the unit. Forearms a aching in the morning…

    A skill I clearly have yet to learn.

    When I bought the hydraulic power pack for my log splitter it came with a jackhammer and three bits. I’ve never had the occasion to use it.

    My brother is converting the ‘ruin’ in his garden into a B&B and was charged with the responsibility of digging a track for some of the utilities.

    Beneath the paving was a bedrock of sandstone. Two days with a hammer and chisel had cleared about a foot. In despair he asked if I had a tool that might make life a little easier.

    I took the jackhammer over this morning and in three hours we excavated the trench. It’s a heavy hardcore piece of equipment. Those guys you see on the roadside make it look easy.

    Technically it’s a palace (if that’s where I think it is) Old Tudor hunting lodge IRRC

    It is a Palace, owned by the Stewarts rather than the Tudors.

    Tudor, TUDOR?!

    Bloody cheek.

    ‘Tudor’ used in this sense to indicate age (like Victorian for example)
    And I forgot that you had the Stewarts in charge up north some years before we got them down south 😳

    “Jackhammer”? I always thought they were called pneumatic drills.

    Or in this case hydraulic drill…
