How to remove grout from floor

I've spent the last week taking up old floor tiles in my kitchen, about 100 in total. It was a really tough job as they were impossible to get up. I hired a medium breaker to help with the job. I now have old adhesive at various levels across the kitchen. What is the most efficient way to lift this up and get the floor to a consistant level so I can prep for new flooring. I tried using the breaker, and it does work, but kicks up a lot of dust and will be very time consuming - its a Kitchen/diner so fairly big room. Is there machine I can hire to make this easier in some way. Thanks in advance for any advice

Concrete grinder (looks like a large angle grinder, but isn't one) and a cyclonic dust extractor (both hired). A domestic vacuum won't work, it needs to be at least a class L extractor. Wear at least a P2 dust mask, close fitting.
