Adhesive removal from concrete


The home we bought had indoor/outdoor carpet on the front porch. We removed the carpet and now have the glue that was used to lay the carpet left on the concrete. The stuff is like iron and won't come off. Anyone have a suggestion for what would get the old glue off. We would like to either lay tile or have the concrete stained. Thanks for the help.

Rent a low RPM floor machine with a paper pad attachment and some 30 grit paper or a 6in grinder will do the same with care or just scrape, scrape, scrape.

Dang, I was hoping for some miracle product. Sanding, grinding and/or scraping all sound like a pain. Six-pack, nah, I'm thinking at least a case, minimum.
