AbstractA tool is provided for removing floor covering bonded to a floor. The tool may be operated to simultaneously cut the floor covering into strips and peel the strips from the floor. The tool may be used with rotovinyl, asphalt, vinyl-asbestos and linoleum floor coverings. Removal of the floor covering is achieved using the tool while in a standing position. The tool includes a wedge shaped body, a channel shaped blade mounted in an inclined fashion at the nose of the body, a roller mounted behind the blade to roll upon the floor and hold the blade at a fixed angle relative to the floor, and an elongated handle rotatably connected to the body beneath the blade.
