BTW  The Harbor Freight breaker hammer is usually
available for $359 and it looks AMAZINGLY like the
Bosch one for well over a $1000.  Makes me think they
are made in the same factory or even the same item.
Even the molded plastic handles look identical.  Only
thing I can SEE that is different is the lack of the Bosch

I am very pleased with mine for breaking up rocks and for
driving fence posts.
