    which is the best method for breaking up chunks of concrete round fence posts and old concrete paths?

    would an SDS drill be any good or would i need to hire a kango?

    If you have a lot to do, probably worth hiring a breaker.

    an sds will strugle. Concrete continues to harden as it gets older. No way of knowing till you come to do it how tough its going to be. Spent an hour breaking out a small lump yesterday, and did two in 10 minutes today. go for a kango breaker or similar.
