Power vinyl strippers


hello again group,
trying to remove vinyl glued to concrete with the putty knife and hammer method....not going well. thinking of renting an electric vinyl stripper from HD.
Do these things really work well for the application I'm working with?
Any input would be appreciated.

Just from talking with the rental dept over the phone, I'm thinking it's like a spud bar with a blade that operates like a mini jackhammer? Would this be a correct assesment?

these are a couple different variations of a power tile scraper.

I think this one os more what you are thinking of.



Harder to use because you have to hold it up.

I believe you're right, thanks for the pics, I may try to find a local place that has the one in the google link. It looks small enough to maneuver, and looks like it would be less work involved.

Well, I did it, used the handheld one like the one you pictured. I really wish that it had the handle in the middle of the shaft like that one!
It was not the "Hot knife through butter" experience that I was hoping for!
Man, I think I lost of couple of fillings to this job.(very shakey....)
It beat the heck out of doing it by hand though. I was left with quite a bit of the backing but it comes up fairly easily with a 9" razor scraper.
Thanks to all for the input.
