Whether you’re a Professional or a Do-It-Yourselfer, the Paintshaver® Pro is the fastest, cleanest, most economical tool for stripping all coatings (including lead paint) from clapboards, shingles, shakes, flat trim, flat windows, flat doors and all other flat wood, concrete, steel and fiberglass surfaces.
The Paintshaver® Pro uses a patented cutting head to cut the paint from the surface while collecting the stripped debris into a wet/dry or HEPA vacuum (vacuum sold separately).
When used with a HEPA vacuum, the Paintshaver® Pro meets the EPA’s RRP requirements for stripping lead paint.
The Paintshaver® Pro has an adjustable depth of cut (adjustable from 0” to 1/16”) and in most cases will strip any thickness of paint in a single pass.
You can strip one square foot of paint in approximately 20-30 seconds.
The Paintshaver® Pro will strip the face and butt end of clapboards, shingles and shakes simultaneously.
The replaceable Tungsten Carbide Blades will strip up to 3000 square feet of surface area on lead paint and up to 6000 square feet on non-lead paint.
The replaceable Diamond Tipped Blades will strip up to 30,000 sq. feet on wood, up to 5000 sq. feet on fiberglass and up to 1000 sq. feet on concrete.
After stripping with the Paintshaver® Pro, the surface is left with a scuffed finish and needs to be sanded with our Orbital Sandervac or any orbital sander.
The Paintshaver® Pro is available in two models. The Paintshaver® Pro 6 Amp and the heavier duty Paintshaver® Pro 8 Amp. The 6 Amp model is recommended for lighter duty applications such as stripping lead, oil, and latex paint on jobs where hitting nails can be avoided. The 8 Amp model is designed for heavy duty applications such as heavy lead paint, concrete, fiberglass, and jobs where hitting nails is unavoidable. (NOTE: Before stripping, we recommend you try to set any nails below the surface if possible.)
