5.0 out of 5 stars Handy little tool for the price, 15 Feb. 2013

This review is from: Vitrex VITGO200VT Grout Removal Tool 230V Grout Out (DIY & Tools)
Having started my re-grout of a fully tiled bathroom with a hand rake. I looked on line and found this and for the price I think it is great, a dam sight easier than doing the job by hand. Having read the other reviews I find it a little strange that people are writing it down.
The thing to remember when using this kind of tool is that the harder you push the less effect ( I use a compressed air chisel in my work so I am used to tools which work in this manor) The idea is to let the tool do the work push gentle and let the point do the work.
I did the whole bathroom in a day ok it's not a massive bathroom 8'x8' and the tiles are 9"x7" but it made the job a lot easier than doing it by hand. Grout out in one day re-grouted next no scratches on tiles no aching arm. As to whether it will last who cares at that price it was worth it just to get the job done and to be fair it is still working just as good as when I started the job.

A point to note though, which it should state on the box when using a tool of this sort you should have a break ever twenty minutes and make sure that your hands are warm at all times (this is important) as sustained and frequent repetitive use can lead to a medical condition commonly known as vibration white finger. Although it is unlikely to occur with a machine this small used over a short time period , it is something to be careful of any numbness stop and warm hand until full feeling returns. If symptoms persist consult a GP

Edit up Date
This unit has now done three fully tiled bathrooms one of which was twice the size of the above, each bathroom the grout was out in 1 day The unit is still working like new and the working tip is still as good as new so I am upping my rating to 5 star
