Rated 4 out of 5Â by duckula67 Fabulous bit of kit
Works really well. helped me repoint a porch connecting vertical wall in no time. Really pushes the mortar into the gaps. Unfortunately it only uses about 2/3 to 3/4 of the tube before it clogs. However this is a problem with mortar NOT the device. It effectively squeezes the water out. All you have to do is unscrew the end, tap the remainder back into your mixing bucket and remix it and start again. Easy.

I wish I had bought this sooner. I have been re-pointing two chimneys as feature walls (previously covered over and had very old crumbly mortar). Both chimneys had a lot of awkward angles and irregular shapes and it was taking me the best part of 2-3 days to re-point each. Having bought the mortar gun I managed to finish it in a day (saving me 1-2 days!) - definitely worth the price tag!
I've only given it 4 stars because the filling scoop doesn't fit which is very basic and doesn't fit being such a simple oversight they really should sort it. That said I used a large table spoon (much to my wife's disgust) which worked fine.

I bought this to repoint some paving and found it did a good clean job once I got the mixture right. Found it easier to load from the nozzle end but had to be careful not to overfill as the little trowel has a larger diameter than the tube. Difficult to keep all of the screw thread clear. Cleaned up well after use and will certainly use again.

Good product for price works as it should. Filling scoop is not much help much easier using trowel with sausage shape mortar on face and dropping it vertically in tube. All in all good value for the money
