2inch thick mortar

Postby gavski » Sat Oct 02, 2010 1:51 pm

I have just removed an old hearth and underneath is a 2" platform of solid mortar that I now have to remove. I have tried hacking it with a cold chisel but it's quite solid and firmly attached to the concrete below.

What's the best and quickest way to remove this?
