    Worked better than the knife. Battery powered does limit use but got the job done! Applied two layers of blue tape w/ one layer duct over blue for protection. 8050 Micro / Model: 8050 EZ476 EZ Lock

    Does that thing bog-down easily?

    It does with pressure. I let the tool do the work. Battery did not last long enough though.

    What did you cut sheet vinyl for removal?
    I couldn't get a toekick saw under a saltillo removal. I would like a better saw/system. Sometimes I can't get my small grinder all the way back for thinset removal.

    Mike the cabinets had been set on a IVC modelo. No score and nap one way with this stuff. Really was not the easiest task. The fiberglass reinforce really makes this stuff tuff. Bought the display model cause orange had not one in stock :( Our work can be difficult in a small city from sales to install.

    I got ya, you can't get leverage with a utility knife under toekick and force to cut thru vinyl tile is excessive.
    I haven't run into LVT under cabinets yet. Sheet, ceramic, hardwood, makes sense only matter of time.
