              Best paint remover! It’s easy to use especially with my injured wrist. Ergonomically good to use in my case.

              The paint eater does a great job of feathering out the edges of peeled paint. Our house is a 1960's build with original cedar cedar shingles. Decades ago the previous owner had it painted. And paint hasn't stuck very well. Each year I pick a section to scrape, prime, and re-paint. The Wagner Paint Eater has made my work easier and the finished result look better.

              Returning after 1 hour of use
              Used it for an hour on a deck, then the pad stopped removing paint. Found the pad free-floating. Accidentally touched the spindle and it burned me. It ran so hot that it melted the plastic threading inside the pad. 1 hour. The pad surface itself was still good. Poor design. Returning it for a normal orbital sander.

              We're sorry to hear about the problem. The Paint Eater is designed for removing loose and flaky paint from hard surfaces. It does not strip well adhered paint. It's important to allow the tool to do the work. If you push on it, it can overheat. For more application help call us at 1-800-328-8251. WagnerSprayTech

                Goes through discs too fast
                This unit does as advertised but with one glaring problem. The discs wear out way too quickly. Picture attached used 2 new discs and 2 older ones I had previously.

                  99% ready to use out of the box. Just like every tool, there is a learning curve. When you use this tool, start light as far as pressure applied. Be very careful on soft woods. This tool is light weight and allows you to change holding points as needed. Its hard to do real detail work, the pad is too big for that, but that is OK as most of the job will get done real good. The harder you push the faster the pad will wear down or load up with paint. I think this is a great tool, beats scraping big time.

                  Paint Eater
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love this product. I took the pant off the test piece I did quicker than it took me to get it out of the box and set up. This machine is the greatest. No more scraping again!

                    Faster than Oldschool
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Right out of the box I wasn't sure if the Painteater would decrease my prep time by much or not, might even just eat up the wood. My project prep time using the Painteater was 3 hours. Without it I'm sure it would have taken all day to get the same results using wire brush and scraper. Because of the ease of this tool I did a much better job in my paint removal. Overall I like the Painteater and would recommend to others.

                      Wow, what a great paint remover!
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I tried my new Wagner Painteater and I sure wish I had something like it long before. It was real easy to assemble the sanding disk. I checked it out to make sure it is easy to swap out also and it is. I first tried it on 2x4 painted yellow. It peeled the paint off in a heartbeat while also making the wood smooth. It was real easy to figure out how to use the sander. I thought I would give it a try to remove paint from a small concrete angel that was peeling paint. I really wanted to see if it would get the paint in the crevices. It peeled the old paint from the angels back very well. Then I angled the sander a little and it cleaned up the crevices. I would highly recommend this product next time you need to remove paint.

                        Awesome tool for my projects
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Incredible little paint eater. Now I am done with sanding papers and scraping tools. Now I am able to remove the old paint faster than ever before.The preparation process before painting goes a lot faster. My hands doesn’t get tired anymore thanks to my brilliant choice of my purchase. I like Wagner products because of their designs and ability to do the work they are made for.
