I wanted to save $800 so I figured I'd teach myself how to retile the floor. I bought a Bosche Bulldog with a tile chisel and went to work popping up 200 sqft of ceramic tile. The tile coming up was a breeze, the thin set was a whole different story. I went to Home Depot's tool rental section and told them what I needed to do. They gave me some kind of 4 inch vibrating blade tool on a stick. 2 hours and 1 foot of scraped thin set later, I took it back. Then they gave me a big floor buffer with a diamond scrubber wheel. I carted that thing home, turned it on, and my house looked like a Northern Michigan Whiteout. It blew my plastic down, and put about a 1/4 inch of thin set dust throughout my house. I used it for about 6 hours and finished 75% of the floor before I gave up because I couldn't see the floor anymore. We took it back to Home Depot the next day and a different guy was there. He told me that he never gives out that vibrating thing because it "doesn't work" and...
This thing works great!! I removed over 600 feet of thin set after removing a ceramic tile floor in my occupied house. Barely any dust released to the house. Be sure to use bags in your vacuum. I used 4 bags and the shroud and vacuum trapped over 100lbs of dust. When you have the gate on shroud open to get up against walls its a good idea to have another person hold another vacuum to catch the dust. Also, when the gate is closed I needed to tape the seam as dust was leaking.
I rigged up a handle out of a 2"x2" and some angle steel. I was able to do the job standing up.
The directions are a little confusing. The shroud instructions say to leave the inner flange washer on when using a (hubbed) Dry Diamond Surface Cup Wheel. But the grinder instructions say to leave the inner flange washer off. Using the 4777T wheel I left the inner flange washer off. Otherwise the grinding wheel would have been to low and below the shroud brush and dust would not be...
I bought this tool to sand down some high spots on cement. It's basically an edge grinder that comes with a dust shroud and cement grinding disc. The vacuum attachment did not quite fit my Ridgid shop vc, but fixed that easily with a bit of duct tape. I'd estimate that the vacuum sucked up more than 80% of the dust, which saved a lot of cleanup. Make sure you're using a proper breathing mask and shop-vac filter suitable for concrete dust. The dust shroud has a convenient sliding cover on the front for edge grinding mode. Be aware that a lot more dust will escape when using as an edge grinder. The dust shroud also saved me from mangling up my fingers when my hand slipped.
Great product for a good price. I'm an amateur DIYer.
