So I have a small brick fence on both sides of my driveway and it has been nothing but trouble since we moved in.

Friends have constantly hit this thing, and my wife has hit it twice, most recently this morning (how I got blamed I do not know LOL ).

I need some demolition tips for getting ride of this thing. Tools to use. That kind of thing.

It is about 1 1/2 feet tall and about 8 feet long. I am only getting rid of the one side because that is the side most hit and we can then expand to a 3 car driveway.

Go to Home Depot and grab two Mexicans - they will make short work of your problem and for very reasonable.

This would pretty much do it. Or a sledgehammer. They tend to break apart easier if you ate some spinach before swinging the hammer.

Yah. Bill Paxton was funny as **** in that.

Speaking of Bill Paxton....anyone planning on watching "Hatfields & McCoys" on History Channel?.....3 part miniseries. Looks pretty good.

Sledge Hammer and goggles is all you really need. If you want to get Tim Allen with it and have access to a 3/4 ton or bigger 4 x 4 truck, you could try attaching a chain to the tow hooks in the front and wrap the other end around the length of the wall. Put it in 4 Lo and hit the gas.

There should be day labor near you and those guys will take it down and haul it away for a reasonably cheap price if you don't want the exercise

Or go to Chiefs Planet they are just as unemployed and you can pay them in meth.

Jackhammer...makes the job faster and you can get rid of the concrete footing also. Make sure you start at 6am sharp with athe broncos2straight hardhat so the neighbors know you nean business. Put a sidearm on while working...helps keep the complaints down.

Just buy your wife a bigger car. She will take care of the wall sooner or later.
