"This is one awesome tool, I don't know why I didn't invest in one years ago! If you only have one or two channels to do, BUY it, it will save you a lot of time and effort, guaranteed!"

"Bought it based on other peoples reviews and it seems to be 100% truth. It does work brilliantly. It is not cheap but worth that money. Would buy again."

Must have for anyone chasing cables."

"I cannot beleive that it's taken me this many years to buy this chisel, I normally disc cut then chisel out with a flat chisel in my Hilti, not anymore.
Marked the wall and away I went, and even I was impressed.
My 30mm wide by 2m long channel was finished in minutes,albeit slightly off line at one point, from then on fast straight channels in no time, Where dust is a factor I'm using a garden sprayer with a very fine mist to keep the dust to a minimum.

"The tool has as yet proved to be reliable and does the work as intended. The tool was purchased to do a specific job and performed as expected and more than covered the initial cost and will be used on future projects. It has become essential part of the tool kit."

What a time-saver!

"Wow!! This tool is great! Used it to run-out electrical conduit channel in an unbelievably quick time. Takes a couple of runs to get used to but once you do it really saves a huge amount of time and effort. Cuts through concrete block and brick easily - took a bit longer on rendering, but so much quicker than by hand!
You won't go back to manual after using this!"

"I can't say enough good things about this. Along with a Titon 6Kg SDS Plus drill this turned hours of work into minutes. Job would have been even quicker if I hadn't kepy stopping to stare in awe at the speedy channel I was sinking."

Quick clean channelling

"Channelling could never be easier than using this box shaped chisel. When used with a sufficiently heavy SDS drill this hardened tool will readily cut neat channels in brick and is quick."

Seems to blunt easily
28-Dec-2009
By
, London
"I don't know if I'm "miss using" this product, however when used on normal bricks the edge is taken off this incredibly quickly, considering the cost.
That being said, I've not seen any thing similar on the market.
I've not yet attempted to sharpen it using a metal file as another reviewer has suggested, I'll look in to that."

Good chisel on lighter masonry
04-Jan-2009
By
, South Wales
"Tough masonry and mortar soon takes the edge off this chisel although |I should imagine it would work well on plaster and softer blocks. I used an angle grinder to cut an outline and then used the chisel to complete the channel. It's a dusty job to say the least but the end result was more than satisfactory. Also bought the 20mm skirting board version to channel behind some rafters.
Note that you can sharpen the chisel with a file or grinder.

Promise unfullfiled
14-Oct-2013
By
, North Wales
"Shank broke after only short use. (less than 24hrs after buying it.)There was an instruction to regularly grease and allow to cool down. This I did religiously even though it never really got hot. I was chasing out channel for electric cable one channel at a time and in between was swopping the chisel for a core bit to prepare the next box. There is obviously a problem here as another reviewer has had same problem. I have never ever broken a shank on an SDS chisel before having used them for approx 10 years, and I recently chiseled the render of a detached house using a cheap Chinese chisel without incident. It is a great shame it broke because it worked really well on the quite soft building blocks I was working with."

Poor channel chisel
09-Nov-2011
By
, Lincoln
"I purchased this to chase a wall for hiding some electrical cable. the shank broke on the first chase. Subsequent purchase came with a warning as to only use the product for ten minutesthen letting it fully cool down before re-use. Any shank breakages will NOT be covered by the warranty. This basically makes it only useful for diy puposes and not for commercial use. It is my opinion that this product will ONLY snap at the shank so buyers beware as it is not a cheap bit of kit."
