A: Yes, it can be used to remove tile.
A: Hi, Yes, in general you can use the Makinex JHT-U-2 Jack hammer Trolley to remove tile on plywood subfloors. However, the ease of this process does depend on the condition of the subfloor and how the tile and thin-set was laid. Best regards, American Pro Equipment Sales (APES)
A: Hi Ted, No, this model is not compatible with the Hilti TE 1500. The Makinex JHT-H (Home Depot Internet #206103178) is compatible with the Hilti TE 1500; that is the one you want to purchase for use with that hammer. **2021 Update** This unit is now compatible with the Hilti TE-1000 and TE-1500.

A: Hi Abigmess19, I can tell you this from experience after recently removing and installing a new floor at my house, trying to remove glued on hardwood floors from a concrete slab is always a sticky situation; pun intentional The Makinex Jackhammer Trolley is a great tool to help with this when paired with the Makinex Tile Smasher. If the glue is old and brittle, you will find the wood and glue can be very easily to removed with this combo. However, if the glue is very thick and tacky, it will be harder to remove. You can do things like prescoring the floor with a hand saw to take it up in smaller sections to aid in the process. With tacky glues, you will often find a lot of residue left once the floor is removed which may require grinding or chemicals to fully remove and prep the surface. I hope this helps and good luck with your project! Best regards, American Pro Equipment Sales (APES)
A: We used our exclusively for tile bit I am sure it would work great for removing wood flooring. You would probably need to follow up with a sander to remove any remaining glue. You would also need to be careful to not dig into the concrete, which is easy to do.
