Rated 2 out of 5 by from Used for wall tile grouting Take care to keep nozel and plunger end scew threads clean, and clean out grout from body section asap when finished. My wife used this to grout kitchen wall tiles, worked well initially, although difficult to load with the over size trowel provided. Unfortunately she didn't clean out quick enough and it seized up solid. Now in the bin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Robust product Used for pointing and reaching difficult to reach areas when laying. Keep it clean after use and make sure no bricks or stones in sand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool Bought this to do some re-pointing at a rental property, it was great, made the job so much quicker than normal. Thought it might be a little messy but it was really easy to use. We added plasticiser to the mix, might not have been as easy without. Scoop didn't fit inside the barrel which I found a bit odd but still filled okay. Looking forward to using it for grouting tiles next. Only downside is the ends can be very difficult to unscrew, got there eventually!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful product This really didn’t work for me. I tried it on patio grout and tile cement and both were a complete disaster. I used buttery mortar with plasticiser. It only works for really fat sausages like 3/4 inch. Any thinner and it gets bunged up. The worst thing is that the plastic valves leak fluid, which then concentrates the mortar, preventing extrusion. With a fat sausage you need to refil very frequently, which is a really messy process.

Type of sand to use.

Great product, did all my work well, but when a mate borrowed it on my recommendation, it failed to perform. Both using "building sand" the performance is down to the right grade of sand I believe. So what is that I wonder?
Asked by: Springer2
Dear -Springer2, Thank you for your question - the answer is soft building sand. There are various ready-made mixes on the market, however we have not tested them but they appear not to be suitable to use with the mortar gun. The sand used in the ready mix is too coarse, causing the mixture to be to thick and clogging up the gun or if more water is added, it then flows from the ratcheting mechanism part and clogs the gun at the front, as the sand thickens. We recommend using following ingredients to achieve creamy, mayo-like consistency: 1 (3-4 parts) soft building sand - the best way to test it is to rub it against your fingers, which should stain your fingers orange 2 (1 part) cement 3 (small amount) plasticizer - lime, washing up liquid or ready made available in the bottle 4 water If you combine those ingredients, you won't go wrong. Good luck.

deeper holes in breeze blocks

hi, I have some deep holes in breeze blocks, celcon. Will this tool be ok, and what nozzle should I use? Thanks.
Asked by: panos
Good morning -panos, Not sure how the holes look like in your celcon breeze blocks. You could try this model and using orange nozzles (white long nozzles are for grouting) or our Ultimate Mortar Gun (SKU 1983T) as the nozzles are slimmer and longer, so this model might be more of what you are looking for.

Can this be used with pre made mortar repair mix ?

Asked by: Geofffyboy
Good morning, We are aware that there are ready mixes of mortar available on the market. These have not been tested by us and we learnt from talking to customers that they don’t seem to be creating the correct mixture, we suspect that this is due to plasticizer missing from the mixture. We accompany mortar guns enquiries with following guidelines on mortar mixture; we hope that you’ll find it useful, too: Firstly, it is important that you only use the orange nozzles (model 32-100) or black nozzles (model 32-150) for mortar mix and not the white grouting nozzle, which is for tiling grout only. Building sand is not always the correct material to use, as this description does not always suggest you are getting Soft Building Sand. The best way to test that you are using the correct sand, is to rub the palm of your hand with the sand, if it stains your palm orange then you have soft building sand. This should ideally be mixed 3-4 parts sand to 1 part cement and plasticizer used to bind the mix together to ensure a smooth, creamy texture. Please note that sharp building sand must be never used. Good luck!

Would this gun be ok for grouting around hand made floor tiles

Asked by: Wader
Dear — Wader, Thank you for your question. This mortar gun can be used as a mortar or the tile grouting gun. It is ideal for jobs such as repointing walls, filling gaps in patio slabs and for grouting floor and wall tiles. Various nozzles are included in the kit. Please note that achieving correct mortar mixture is a key: firstly, it is important that you only use the orange nozzles for mortar mix and not the white grouting nozzle, which is for tiling grout only. Building sand is not always the correct material to use, as this description does not always suggest you are getting soft building sand.
