The high-performance, spun-fiber disc operates at 2,000 RPM to provide the proper combination of disc performance and user control and features an open-web disc design to minimize paint and dust build-up.

High-performance, spun-fiber 3M disc aggressively removes paint yet is gentle on surfaces.
The Wagner PaintEater is a one-step paint remover that's aggressive on paint but gentle on siding and trim.

|The PaintEater powerfully removes paint, then gently smooths the underlying surface to prepare it for a fresh coat.|
Painting a home's exterior is a big project, but one that pays off in curb appeal as well as protection for your home. The first and most tedious step in painting your home is to get rid of loose or flaking paint and to prepare a smooth surface for a fresh coat. The PaintEater is an award-winning tool from Wagner Spray Tech and 3M that will help make quick work of this process.
The Wagner PaintEater was awarded the Handyman Club of America's Member Tested and Recommended Seal and Contractor Tested and Recommended Seal.
Aggressive on Paint, Gentle on Siding and Trim
The Wagner PaintEater aggressively removes paint but is easy on underlying substrate. With the PaintEater you can prepare most outdoor surfaces, including wood and masonite siding, concrete, and steel. The machine's powerful, 3.2-amp motor delivers 2,600 RPM for removing even the most stubborn pain, paint oxides, and mildew; this optimal rotary speed gives just the right combination of performance and control.
Flex-Disc System for Precise Results
The PaintEater combines a high-powered machine and a tough 3M spun-fiber disc with high-performance abrasive embedded into the fibers. Together they provide you with speed, power, performance, and control, so you don't have to worry about damaging surfaces.
The PaintEater's innovative Flex-Disc System allows the disc to conform to surfaces for precise results around flat trim and siding. The disc can be operated on its edge--to remove stubborn paint chips--or flat--to smooth or feather edges. The outer edge of the disc is ideal for preparing the surface underneath lap siding. The disc's compact size--4-1/2 inches--allows you to access tight corners; its open-web design minimizes buildup of paint and dust and allows the disc to easily glide over screws, nails, or sharp edges without damage.
Removing the disc is just as simple as using it--no tools required. Simply engage the arbor lock and unscrew.
Ergonomic Design Provides Comfort and Safety
The PaintEater is ergonomically designed to allow for multiple hand positions and to ease hand fatigue. It can safely be used with either the right hand or left hand, and the retractable handle and soft-grip cover allow you to easily switch between one-handed and two-handed operation. And even with its rugged, glass-filled polypropylene body, the PaintEater is lightweight enough for you to carry from job to job.
A shroud design at the base of the unit ensures that your hands stay safely away from the disc during operation. For added protection, the PaintEater features a Velcro strap for securing the tool safely to your hand when working on a ladder, rooftop, or when you just need extra leverage. For peace of mind, a silicon boot protects the on/off switch from dust and moisture.
The Wagner PaintEater is backed by a one-year limited warranty.

Now, I'm taking away two starts because there is a non-resettable fuse inside that blows when the windings get to about 200 F. That would be fine, except that the device can heat up pretty quickly when doing more serious jobs (such as my concrete stripping project). And bam - without any warning, the device is dead. Judging from the reviews, many other people have bumped into the same problem.
A resettable circuit would have been a much better choice and would have costed them just a tiny bit more - I mean, we're talking 50 cents or something. You can obviously replace or get rid of the fuse if you're adventurous and don't mind voiding warranties, but people who aren't particularly savvy with electronics will need to send it back.
My only complaint is regarding the plastic flip handle. This broke after one day (5-6 hours) of use. I simply picked it up by the handle on day two and it broke off. Could use a more durable design. However, the unit still works fine without the handle.
For the price, it's worth the buy in my opinion. Even with a broken handle, the amount of time saved compared to hand scraping is worth the price. Plus, it does a much nicer job than scraping.
Purple 'paint-eater' sander disc I bought from Lowes lasted longer than the black one shipped with the product.
Need to use both hands to use to keep flat on surface.
Anyway, I love Amazon and will end up with a painted house 10 times more thorough than when I did it 18 years ago using a scraper and putty knife!
Yes, you could scrape and sand but finally there is a power tool to do both at once. The important thing is it's all ready to paint when done.
A whole house would take a while, but a day with a PaintEater would replace a week of scraping and sanding.
I keep saying both because it you want a good job you have to feather the paint or it will look like crap when you paint and the paint will likely peel off the old paint you did not remove unless you rough up the surface.
