Nothing sucks more than stripping paint off a house. Nothing. That’s why we’re always writing about anything that might make the job easier. But this sucker, sent in by TM reader PutnamEco, looks like it might be the final solution. Its motor spins a set of carbide blades to rip the paint right off, and a paint collection attachment captures the paint in a shop vac.
Obviously this tool is intended for removing leaded paint, but even if your paint is safe, it’d still save a ton of time in cleanup. It runs off 110V power, and the motor spins at 10,000 rpm.
The downside: it’s expsinsive. We found it via eBay starting at around $600, though there’s currently one listing for $279. I’d probably pay $279 for it, but not more — at least not for my non-pro purposes.
Be sure to check out the video on the site — if only removing paint were always that easy.
