Remove paint from concrete area

Any advice on how to remove paint from a 36 square foot concrete outdoor space. I tried scraping, sanding and using my hose to remove most of the paint, but there's still a lot left. Is there a better way? Was planning to apply a solid color concrete stain after I'm done.

I'd brush on a paint stripper, let it work and then pressure wash the concrete.

I'd be using my pressure washer with a Turbo blaster nozzle.

Since you will be staining the concrete and will have to get it very clean, I would use a diamond cup wheel on a 4" grinder. Be sure to go easy and wear PPE.

You could also a wire wheel or wire cup wheel.
