A belt sander will be much faster than an orbital.

Of course, a jackhammer might be pretty quick, too. Or explosives

Personally, I wouldn't go near it with a belt sander. Too agressive, which is likely to lead to uneven results / damage.

Shy of having it professionally blasted, I'd go at it with a chemical stripper, followed by the orbital.
