Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alex Works better then I thought it would!
The tool fits onto the grinder no problem. It removed paint and gunk from my garage floor exposing new concrete that has a paint ready texture to it.
This tool is very fast also. I did a 2 x2 square in about one minute.
I would recommend a dust shroud and vacuum because it makes a lot of dust.

It's a great tool for small jobs. If you're doing a big job then you need to rent the required tools. Also wear the correct eye, nose, and ear protection.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jslr Diamabrush Removal Hand Tool - 7 Inch - 8 Blade - 25 Grit
Removed approximately 300 sqft of (very well glued) linoleum backer and glue and 120' of tar that had been used to seal the sill using about 1/2 of the diamond inserts. I did no use a shroud but I was out in the open. Great tool lots of dust wear a respirator.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by User22222 Great tool but way overpriced
This worked great but the teeth will
Break off and it costs $85+tax... Which makes it very expensive. I had to have 2 of them to grind paint off my basement walls.

Worked like a charm. Ate through layers upon layers of adhesives.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jim Great for paint removal on concrete, be ready to catch the dust
Hook a dust shroud to a strong vacuum and gear up (ear protection, a good respirator and not a dust mask, eye protection).
It worked well removing several layers of paint on a concrete swimming pool. I used two blades to finish the job (1700sf) so maybe buy a second if you have a large job to do, but I still have a lot left of blade #2. Home Depot doesn't stock the replacement blades and they cost about the same as another blade, you'll maybe save $10, but it would be nice if they started stocking them.
This blade also comes with a set of spacers so it will work well with your shroud. The spacers go between the blade and the tool, so when you thread it on the shaft it keeps the right clearance.
I doubt it's recommended but I hooked a water hose to the shroud and this blade still worked great - just don't force too much water, just enough for a slurry.
When the blades wear they take some metal from the support plates behind them so don't expect a perfectly smooth finish once they start to wear. Also save the side walls of your project for last since the blade edges bend a little when you bang into concrete sides (as you'd expect).
From the other posts - yes, as with any tools watch the rpms on this, make sure the rating of this blade EXCEEDS the speed of your grinder. Yes, if you push down it will wear faster but this was not an issue for me - I wanted the job done quickly and would rather go through the materials then spend more time. Yes, it is aggressive and it works better than cup wheel grinders on paint but won't last as long.
For the grinder, I used a bosch 1873-8f (about $150), which is a real workhorse, and I used the Bosch dust shroud (about $90).
