Racking Out / Dust Extraction Equipment

Need to do a bit of repointing work, have completed some on my garage back wall (as a test) and while am happy with the finish ran into some issues with racking out.

Tried using a mortar rake with my chepo Mac Allister 750W 240V 115mm Corded Angle grinder. Got through the loose stuff OK but I think I need something quicker on the harder material.

Should I opt for a more powerful angle grinder and if so what should I be looking at in the way of power? AND/OR should I go for a disk mortar racker?

Also what about a depth gauge?

And dust extraction can I get away with using a cheap wet and dry vacuum and linking it up, and if so how?
