Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked Fine for My Job. I purchased this to knock down edges of the possibly 5 layers of floor paint in the basement of my hundred-year-old home. Hard to tell, but the paint was probably not latex; maybe lead-based, but was fully dried and brittle. Having read some reviews, I was apprehensive but gave it a go and, honestly, I am satisfied with it. It did require some patience to get through the layers. It also did a solid job of knocking down the edges of the small-agg concrete that my water-proofing contractor got a bit over-excited with. As with all sanding tools, there is nothing to be gained by putting excessive pressure on it. Just let the tool do the work and tilt it if you need to focus on a particular area, but be careful. Cured paint chips coming off the disc can do some damage... All that being said, this would not be my tool of choice if I was looking to actually strip all of the paint in a large area. Too many layers, too small a disc. Only real con I found was the obscenely short cord on it. Seriously, Wagner...what were your designers thinking to gain here? I solved that issue by making myself a little sling to hold the cord over my shoulder since the 12 inches of length is just long enough to land an extension cord plug right at the edge of the sanding wheel. Bit disappointed in you, Wagner...*shaking my head* Last note: Not really sure why people here and on other sites were complaining about getting the discs off. I had zero issues with that. As Wagner has said, discs are THREADED ON.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luv it I bought this a couple of months ago. I finally got to use it and it is a beast. I Luv it. Just strips the paint right off. Before I used a belt sander and an orbital sander, talk about tired arms. With this guy it strips the paint in no time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The replacement disc doesn't come off. I do think think this product worked well right up until the point where I needed to put on a new disc. I used it to distress a huge brick wall in my kitchen. Got halfway done, needed a new disc, fine. Went to get a new one and the old one wouldn't budge. I tried everything to get it off and it just isn't happening. I'm kind of at a loss because I'm worried if I go with something else the distressed look won't be consistent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Eats Paint like Butter, however This has been a complete godsend for my various projects, and saved me a lot a manual effort.... from drawers, soffit/fascia, exterior wooden columns etc. however I am completely unhappy when the first time I tried to change the sanding disc, the cheap plastic locking mechanism broke. Expensive one time power tool. Over a year since purchased so warranty claim is a bust. Hope the mfg reads this and helps me out. I want to buy anther to replace it since the paint eating aspect is awesome, but not if I can’t replace the sanding disc. Rating would be 5 stars otherwise.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't remove paint from concrete I bought this a week ago to remove paint from my driveway. What a waste of money. It WILL NOT DO IT

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy it We have a cedar home we are preparing to sell. It has a lovely front porch with peeling paint on the floor and around the facing boards. Water damage from seepage up the grain from poorly coated end grains. I have been using a Black and Decker “Mouse” orbital sander with 80 grit pads and a 4” square palm sander with 80 grit. Whew, they take so long to remove cracked and chipped paint that I might as well use a head gun to blister it off. Saw the Paint Eater on the shelf while picking up some paint and thought “ $XX.XX - no too much”. After two days of orbital frustration I went online to read reviews of the unit. Decided to pick one up and WOW this thing is twice to three times faster than an orbital. I am VERY happy with this and so is my back. - Disclaimer: as with any tool, experience and technique make a tremendous difference in your outcome. I have built my own boat when I was 16 and I have watched a drill press fling wood across the room when used with no experience. Hold it at an angle with both hands and do not press too hard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy Tool I recently had to repair the textured ceiling in my kitchen due to a pipe leaking from above. I ended up having to replace a section of drywall approximately 2' x 3'. The ceiling had been previously painted so knocking down the texturing with a blade was difficult. Then I used the paintEater.. It worked great! The disc does the work so little pressure is needed. with a little time and trial I was able to feather the area to the new taped joints. After adding the new drywall mud to the repair joints and feathering it to the old it made a seamless repair and ready for the new texture. Another use for this versatile product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expectations Met! The PaintEATER is a machine worth have it around your projects. It’s ability to strip paint, rust or other unwantmaterial is amazing. The equipment/tool is lightweight, comes with a utility handle and strap for easy maneuverability. The tool also has the power to complete both small and large tasks. We used it to strip paint off a metal door and even out nicks. Also used it to remove rust off some outdoor furniture, all with very little muscle power. The tool is worth its purchase.
