I almost didnt try it due to other poor reviews. I have a 130 year old house and I have 6-10 coats of old paint to remove. This thing tears through old paint and is not that tough on the wood underside. For the money it's a no brainer. I have about 20 hours on my first disc and it still sounds like it did when it was new. So far, so good!!

Works as advertised, However...
A better purchase would be a grinder with a simular disc, that way there will be a use for the tool after the stripping job that most people would buy this for is done. On the other hand, this tool creates a lot of dust, even with full protection. I would prefer the old fashioned hand scraper any day. Save some money, knowing what I know now after using the tool, I wouldn't buy it again.

      A big disapointment and a waste of money. It looked like the answer to my problem of quickly removing peeling paint. Found it not to be and no support from their technical service. My first use. Two pads quickly loaded with old paint . Recomended owners manual instructions are to run against sidewalk to clean. Did not clean the pad. I feel the motor needs to be a variable speed because it just seems to melt the paint flakes into the pad.

      Does an excellent job of removing paint but has a design flaw.

      Pros

      • removes paint quickly and efficiently

      Cons

      • Prone to breakage

        Comments about Wagner® Paint Eater® Paint Remover (0513040):

        As the owner of a large old Victorian home I have to constantly remove old paint and the Paint Eater does a great job, speeding up paint removal much easier and faster than using regular sandpaper based machines. However, when the time comes to replace the sanding disc with a new one, the plunger designed to hold the shaft while removing the sanding disc is held in place by fragile plastic. The result is that the pressure required to turn the disc to remove it exceeds the strength of the plastic holding the plunger. If my current machine breaks the plunger retainer I am going to try to remove the broken pieces and use a screwdriver shaft that will fit in the shaft. If anyone has found a lubricant that will prevent the disc from sticking to the shaft please post in on this site.

        As with every wagner product I've used, equal attention seems to have been spent on performance and comfort. Any number of ways to hold this, never allowing enough time for positional fatigue. And expect the lights to dim when you turn this on.

            THIS TOOL EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. I'M HOPING THAT WAGNER ALSO MAKES A MINI PAINT EATER FOR WORKING IN CONFINDED AREAS LIKE RAILINGS. I WOULD BUY BOTH OF THEM.

              I was preparing my house for paint, and after a week of scraping by hand I was wore out so I went online and found this PaintEater, and after reading the reviews I bought one and went to work. I won't say it did all the work because I still had to scrape, but probably 3/4 less had it not been for the PaintEater which worker flawlessly at paint removal and did an excellent job at feathering all the edges. It is a bit heavy after awhile but I guess because it is very rugged, and I'd guess a nearly indestructible tool!

              Does the PaintEater work?

              I had the job of repainting the exterior of an older house. Lots of flaking, old paint to deal with. The PaintEater did a good job of removing old paint without damaging the wood. The wheels, although a bit pricey, lasted for a good amount of use. They clean well and easily. The tool is light enough for extended use.

                  Comments about Wagner® Paint Eater® Paint Remover (0513040):

                  I bought a 76 year old frame house with an exterior that had paint peeling, chipping off, bare spots, every imaginable situation. No one had touched the exterior for 25 years. I took to the house first with a pressure washer, then with the PaintEater, then with the Wagner Paint Gun, then the sanders. The PaintEater saved me so much time and effort and was key in removing all the paint and taking it back down to the bare wood. I used it for 1 year (weekends) before the switch for the pad replacement broke. I contacted the company and they sent me not the switch but an entire product. This product was a lifesaver.

                  I borrowed a painteater and used it for about a day. It stopped working and it is at the repair place now. It did such a good job when it was working we went a bought a new one for ourself. Hope it keeps working.

                  A friend of mine from college recommend I use this product becasue he loved it. I use it to strip all the loose paint off of my mother-in-laws deck and then restain it. The thing worked great. It removed all the loose paint and feathered out the edges so when I sprayed a new coat of solid color stain on the boards it looked like new. I also used a Wagner HVLP to do the staining and it worked really good too since I could adjust it to a small 2" pattern for the spindles and use an 8" wide spray pattern for the deck boards. My mother-in -law was happy and I was a hero.
