I need to remove about 100m² of ceramic tiles, mostly floor tiles. We have floating concrete floors and brick walls. At the moment I have a Bosch rotary hammer (SDS Plus, about 3Joule impact energy).

Is that enough or should I better get an SDS-Max hammer?

  • You've got the rotary hammer. Give it a go and see if it works. If not, invest in the purchase/rental of additional weaponry. If the rotary hammer works, but just not fast enough, rent a second one and conscript someone to operate it. – FreeMan Jun 29 at 12:21

Should be fine, with a decent wide chisel bit. I used my Bosch SDS drill to completely strip the pebble-dash off my old house.

At the end of the day, though, a lot will depend on what the adhesive is like, and how strong the tiles are (whether they shatter or come off in nice large pieces)
