Cutting asphalt?

Quick question to satisfy SWMBO-

I rented a gas diamond saw the other day to slice up an approx 12' length of my asphalt driveway next to my house. (I need to run conduit for subpanel to garage.) The saw worked, and I cross-cut the lines in order to make little sections that would be easy to remove.

Well, turns out the driveway was like 4.5" thick, saw cut about 3.5". I managed to rip out about 2' so far, but it took a TON of effort (sledge, cold chisel, crowbars). I think I need to rent a small jackhammer to get the remaining parts out. Does that sound like it will work, or should I try something else first?

There is a rentable small electric jackhammer that would make life easier.

Hope this helps.
