    The previous owner glued out door carpet on a set of concrete steps. They have the deep ridges on them for slip. We still haven’t gotten all the glue out of the grooves. Royal PITA

    Never heard of that, it would be great if it works. I would probably go for the angle grinder and a concrete / diamond cup polisher on it but that’s a lot messier.

    I vote for the buffer machine.

    Agree

    Agree

    Sounds like this is the easiest option.

    Rent a floor buffer wit the carbide scraper base. It will be less than a hundret bucks and you can cover over a hundred SF in an hour. You will be at if forever with an OMT. Even coarse sandpaper will plug up real fast. A buffer will cut a 12 to 18 inch circle depending on the size of the disk. No better way.

    Sandpaper seems like a good idea for the first couple of minutes or so. The carbide scraper is the best option.

    This is a cheaper option, that I’ve used once. A long handled floor scraper. You can sharpen the edge a little since you’re on concrete and that’ll help it go a little faster. It’s a little rough on the back, but if you’re strapped for cash – I’d go this route.

    the easiest and fastest way to remove any glue or mortar from a concrete floor would be to use a floor grinding tool like the PHX12

    This is good info as I may run into the same thing in my basement when I pull up the carpet that is sticking to the floor. Not sure if it’s glued down in sports or what.

    We’ve been renting lots of different floor grinders to remove glue etc and then stain the floors. This is the machine that we have liked the best and now about to purchase our own.

    pg 280 husqvarna floor grinder.

    It is pretty small, it is works great.

    It looked truly impressive to me. No idea what they cost to buy. One thing one always has to look at with this kind of equipment is the consumables costs. Make sure you do that part of your pre-purchase homework.

    Thanks @doobie. Yeah we have looked at those costs. We’ve already paid in rental fees to pay for 1.5x the cost of purchasing. They really are not too expensive to purchase if you get the smaller ones.
