    I broke 17 yards of slabs mostly 4-5" thick this last weekend, and now all of a sudden my back hurts like hell. It was fun I got some anger out, broke 4 handles on the sledge, until we went and bought a decent hickory one.

    Ok, seriously... that's just crazy talk. Don't the voice IN your head get the best of you.

    Well I did the work for my g/f's dad who has a collapsed spine. I used what he gave me, and it worked just fine. It may have taken a little longer then a jack hammer but it got the job done. Most of the 4-5" stuff was really easy to break, but there was one piece that was about 6" in some spots, and up to 12" in others. Thats the one that broke most of the handles. I do agree on the working muscles that I haven't worked in awhile..
