Very Usefull Tool,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vitrex VITGO200VT Grout Removal Tool 230V Grout Out (DIY & Tools)
First of all there is no easy way to remove old grout.
I found that this tool could not be used as the only tool for the job.
Where the original tiling and grouting had even slots and the grout had not hardened to mutch, it worked fine.
For areas of hardened grout (usually closest to the water exposure in a shower) were delt with by using a Bosch Multitool and then cleaned up with the ‘Grout Out’ tool.
I had read some bad reviews before purchase but was impressed with the video showing easy grout removal. One has to get use to the tool and develop a skill in using it, as with any tool. It is possible to damage the tiles so carfull use is necessary (as with any power tool on tiles). It may be that those with a negative review never used it long enough to develop the skill required because they gave up when trying to remove hard grout which it will not handle very well.
It can cause ‘White Finger’ if used continualy but this is not a problem if alternating between tools. Don’t press to hard and change your grip on the tool regularly.
Overall, I would reccomended it but in combination with other tools.
