    I have a landscaping project I am bidding on, and part of the project is removing a 50 SF Concrete slab and about a 75-100 SF Slab of blacktop. I am all set on the concrete removal but I have never worked with blacktop. Does it come up as easily as Concrete? Can you cut it with a concrete saw? Just looking for some general info so I can bid this with some confidence.

    removing blacktop is a lot easier than removing concrete. Once you break through it you can just lift it up and it will break off. If you use a skidsteer or hoe it is almost like digging hard clay. You can get ashpalt blades to cut it.
