    Hi

    I am hoping to remove old files from a concrete floor (utility room and toilet). Did one by hand with a club hammer and wide chisel which worked but took absolutley ages. I don't have any suitable electric tools so looking to hire a tool to get it done quickly.

    What is the best option? I've watched some YouTube videos and have seen tile removal tools, and also grinders for the adhesive/thinset.

    Any advice much appreciated.

    Cheers, Steve

    Tile lifter chisel on an SDS hammer drill, will do a lot of the donkey work for you but you will need some hand tools and plenty of elbow grease at some stage.
