Works great. Using 17" tiles which are heavy. Easy rotation on a 5 gallon bucket. I could back butter as fast as the layer could prep the floor. Really speeds up the process and reduces fatigue. Recommended.

This tool saved me lots of time, I installed 18x18 floor tiles and back buttered every one. Just set them up and go, like making a pizza. Highly recommended.

BBB !
I think this tool is a MUST for anyone planning to set tiles. It safely and simply spins to allow the proper thin set to be applied to the backs of the tiles GREAT TOOL !
