Imported Demolition Hammers

Has anyone used any of the imported demolition hammers? I need to break up a concrete patio and would also like to install a french drain in the basement. Renting is not an option since the basement project will have to be done over a period of time. I know the quality is not there with the imports but if I can complete these two jobs I'd be happy. Imports are $150 vs. over $600 for name brands. Thanks.

What you propose is perfect for an inexpensive tool.
The warranty will ensure you make it through your project with a usefull tool left over as a bonus.
I'm sure it will last you a long time.

One thing I would be very cautious about is hammering tools.

I went to college with a guy who lost an eye to an improperly heat treated chisel he was hammering on - split up and the sliver went right through his safety glasses into his eye.

Ever since I heard that story I've tended to spend the higher dollars on anything I hammer on.
