which tool to remove concrete fireplace hearth

Which tool do I need to remove the concrete hearth to the fireplace ? I dont want to manually bolster the concrete out.

Is a SDS drill the best for the job ?

Removing a concrete fireplace hearth can be a difficult and labor-intensive task, and it will require the use of several tools. Here are some tools that you may need:

1. Hammer and chisel: Use a hammer and chisel to break up the concrete into smaller pieces. This is a good starting point to remove the hearth.

2. Handheld concrete saw: A handheld concrete saw can be used to cut through the concrete. This tool is especially useful for cutting straight lines and making precise cuts.

3. Electric demolition hammer: An electric demolition hammer can be used to break up the concrete into smaller pieces. This tool is more powerful than a hammer and chisel and can make the job go faster.

4. Angle grinder: An angle grinder can be used to remove the remaining concrete and smooth out the surface.

5. Dust mask and eye protection: Removing concrete can create a lot of dust, so it's important to wear a dust mask and eye protection to protect yourself from the dust.

6. safety boots and gloves: Concrete removal can be dangerous so you should use safety boots and gloves to protect yourself from possible injuries.

7. Heavy-duty shovel or scoop: To remove the broken concrete pieces from the hearth.

It is important to note that removing a concrete fireplace hearth can be a difficult and labor-intensive task, and it may be best to hire a professional if you are not comfortable or experienced with this type of work.
