I need to remove about 60 square feet of 3/8" softwood plywood that's
tightly glued from wall-to-wall to the concrete floor of a shed.
Can anyone suggest a reasonably easy and/or efficient way to peel off
the plies or remove the plywood in some other way?
I've never used one, but I've seen powered floor scrapers at the tool
rental place. They're supposed to be able to get tile off, so they
should work with glue and plywood.
Tell us more about what you're trying to accomplish. Maybe someone will
have a better idea.

Did you ever figure out a way to remove it? We're dealing with the
same thing in a house we're remodeling. Someone glued plywood down to
a concrete floor. They used a lot too, spread it like thinset. Then
they put vinyl down over that and the result is bomb proof. We tried
a floor scraper and it was ridiculously hard work, only got a few
square feet up in several hours. We've also tried an air chisel, heat
gun, and scoring it with a saw. Please let me know if you found
anything that works. If yours is only in a shed I'd be very tempted
to leave it.
