There's no hurry. If you get a moment this weekend to post a pic from your home computer, I'd sure like to take a look! You've got me intrigued.

I have used the electric jack hammer, well worth the rental fee.
Just work around the edges so that you are never asking it to break off more than 6-8" at a time.
Just like any other machining method it works best if the chip has a place to go.
In other words, if you tried hammering in the middle of a big piece you don't get good results, if you hammer at a piece that can
move away than it will break quickly.
I use broken concrete in the spillway for the pond dam, I figure it will last for eons and keep the erosion to minimum.
Good luck, be careful.

alfreema, pm me your email and I can send pix from phone. PC has been sidelined since last October. I have been only using concrete flat. Saw stacked wall idea on TV. Could prolly find on Internet. Some places sell ground up concrete to use as gravel.

Around my area they crush old concrete into a 304 gravel. It's about half the price of limestone 304 but it has a significant amount of trash in it, like good sized pieces of rebar and matting which doesn't grind well.

If you want to have some fun, rent a skid steer with a hydraulic hammer. :D ....but it's not worth the expense. It will however, "git'er done!!"

PM sent.

I believe this pad may be bigger than I guesstimated, and probably has a stem wall that I didn't consider. Ugh.
