Floor scraper is the back friendly way as it is long handled.

If you have an SDS+ drill you can get a tiling chisel which is less physical effort but lower to the ground so not so back friendly.

Hi @Wex,

 

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community, it's great to have you join us. It's fantastic to see you've already received some helpful advice from the very knowledgeable @Brad.

 

What do you plan on laying as the flooring in this area? As @Brad mentioned removing glue can be rather labour intensive. Since it is such a large area I would be inclined to look at whether a floor levelling product would be suitable. As long as the existing cement-based glue is sound then a leveller can be poured over the top of it.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions about the use of these products.

 

Mitchell
