"Prefer to use this better than a grinding disc as you can see exactly how much or little you are raking out."

Great tool for the job
21 Oct 2012
By Heyford
, Bicester
"This is the tool to make life easy. Used for the first time and now wonder how i would have done the job without it.
The carbide does a great job, completed a wall section about 6mtr by 5 brick high and the carbide could do with replacing as although it is getting through the mortar it is not as easy as at the start however a great tool and would buy again, this is why 4 stars for performance.

"Rakes out the mortar very quick and cleanly. Easy to use would not be without. Also got Rough Neck Mortar Gun that puts it back as quick."

Mortar Rake
3 Aug 2011
By PatioKing
, Basingstoke
"I used this mortar rake to rake out the old mortat between the slabs in my patio, prior to repointing the slabs. The mortar rake worked extremely well and lasted a great deal longer than I expected it to do.
I did in the end assist in extending its life by taking a relief cut down the centre of the mortar line with a 9 inch angle grinder & then went back over the run with the 4 1/2 inch angle grinder with mortar rake at which point the mortar was just falling out the joints easy peasy. Would deffinately use it again & highly reccomend it to others. Not tried it on brick work but I'm sure the same principle would apply. Didn't rate the features high as it has only one but it does that one thing very well."

Mortar Rake
6 Jun 2014
By Anonymous
, Leigh
"Great little device for removing brick mortar, crumbling and sound.
A good cutting length of 35mm was enough to remove adequate mortar for new joint filling.
Performed well without fault, as long as you let the tool do the cutting work and not try to force the rake through the mortar.
Will be purchasing the 100mm length for brick removals.

Quite a good tool

"A good tool for raking out old crumbling mortar but don't expect it to take out anything remotely solid as it will just bounce and wear our quickly."

Not a Good Buy

"Sorry, but the mortar rake is poor value.
It wears out far too quickly, and then shears off at the base. ( happened three times - no more chances)
"
