Bosch SDS fo sho, made in Germany model. I can hand it to a $10/hr laborer and say "demo that" with no further instructions. It will run for 3-4 hours with 0 breaks, get hot enough that you can't hold it, and I know it will still be kicking at the end of the day and for some time to come.

Or put it into hammer-only with a chisel bit, and have a mini jackhammer that will do some damage.

But there's a better deal right now - a free 4.5" grinder:

I spent a little more for more torque & a metal gearbox:

I've been using my old style HF SDS max hammer drill lately as the hammer only with a wide chisel to peel up tile off my folks floor. Thing is a beast and a hell of a lot better than a floor scraper!

Been doing the same digging in clay & the spade bit. Wish I had it in my younger days with the pickaxe trying to trench.
