The nightmare is over.
This beats the HECK out of chemical stripping, heat guns, etc. You can't strip everything with it, but if you have a good amount of flat surface to prep it'll save you a TON of time. Downside? It is German-made, and thus along with it's quality manufacture and design comes an oddball dust port, which is basically useless with American shop vacs, and the cause of my one-star downgrade from perfect. To hook it up you'll have to rig it to your hose with - yup, world's handiest tool - duct tape :)

This tool is hard to get a smooth finish with, but it gets you close enough, fast enough, that you can spend a few minutes more with your sander and make the surface real pretty. I highly recommend this item if you have one of those nightmare prep jobs consisting of dozens of square feet of outdoor trim with layers upon layers of paint on them. It really does make short work of this kind of job, and the blades hold up pretty well. I do recommend getting a package of extras, though, unless your job is really small (if it is, then this tool is overkill anyway.)

REMOVING PAINT FROM OLD HOUSE
This machine will remove old paint from house except don't think it is going to be quick. If you have nothing to do for a month or two and want to remove old paint from your house, it will work. Didn't get much accomplised the first day. It will be slow. This machine is a little heavy. As everyone else said the safety flaps will come off. I have lost one already even after I taped it down. The dust port won't fit a normal vaccuum because of it's shape. Dust will fly everywhere. use a face shield and ear protection. Maybe I was expecting too much from it. It is a bit costly, but it was the only one I found with good reviews. The only reason I would not reccomend it is because the dust port will not fit a normal vaccuum and the flaps problem. It does work good but slow.

supreme
this thing kicks butt. i removed varnish and stain on thirteen steps in an hour. definately hook up a hose to a shop vac; it kicks out a lot of dust. i only went through two blades doing these steps. the tool gets it done. do buy a couple extra blades so you don't get stuck in the middle of the job. i would buy it in a heartbeat; saves a ton of time.

METABO LF 724S
PURCHASED JUNE 2014 AND I HAVE USED IT FOR ABOUT 20 HOURS. GREAT MACHINE FOR REMOVING LAYERS OF PAINT. I USED IT TO STRIP BLISTERED PAINT OFF OF AN OLD HOUSE WE ARE REMODELING FOR OUR SON.COMPLIED WITH HEPA REQUIREMENTS AND THE TOOL HOOKS UP NICELY TO HEPA VAC. MACHINE IS MUCH CHEAPTER THAN THE PAINT SHAVER PRO. I USED IT ON CEDAR CLAPBOARD SIDING. BUY EXTRA BLADES YOU WILL NEED THEM. GOOD QUALITY MACHINE AND POWERFUL. AS OTHER REVIEWS HAVE INDICATED, THE PLASTIC CLIPS COME OFF TOO EASILY. I WAS AWARE OF THIS ISSUE AND TRIED TO BE CAREFUL WITH IT TO NO AVAIL. LOST ONE AND COULDN'T FIND IT. EASY TO IMPROVISE AN ALTERNATIVE. I USED A METAL PLATE WITH GORILLA DUCKTAPE AND IT WORKS FINE. STRIPS MULTIPLE LAYERS OF PAINT OFF. EASY TO CHANGE BLADES AND ADJUST DEPTH OF CUT. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS TOOL.ONLY REASON FOR 4 STARS IS BECAUSE OF THE CLIP ISSUE. THE MACHINE ITSELF RATES 5 STARS.

Good tool
Good tool but has limited used for side of tool. make sure you wear eye protection and a mask especially for leaded paints. It will gouge if not carfull. You must catch the right angle for flat surfaces with several layers of hard paint. Make sure you use a vacume attachment cause dusr will fly everywhere.

Top quality tool
Does fine on todays finishes but loads instantly on the heavy layers of an old victorian. Does a good job of smoothing on final pass minimizing sanding requirements prior to refinishing. Very high quality overall but buy extra doors and their springs-you'll need them, or duct tape them in place when not exposing blades. PaintShaver Pro's the one to use for really old exterior paints

Cpo delivers! Metabo safety issue...
Safety doors failed immediately.cpo has provided a great product at a great price but metabo should include extra safety doors or fix this serious safety issue. Other than that, this tool is great for fast, leads-safe paint removal.

Does the work as described
I am using the product to remove layers of paint on my home, it has been removing all the layers as decribed, the adjustment feature of the blades is easy to use, tool is a bit loud, and the carbide blades do chip some when you hit a loose nail head, I have ordered replacement blades, would suggest doing that when you purchase the paint remover.

Effective Paint Remover
It really works very well although the plastic safety tabs flew off almost immediately and I had to improvise my own shields out of plastic and super sticky roll flashing-tape otherwise you get bombarded by some pretty serious shards of paint and wood chips. Not for the faint of heart. All the gear is highly recommended from goggles to face shield and resperator. A regular dust mask definitely wont cut it. I wear a rain coat too because the stuff goes right through the clothes, it's pretty intense. But it does work very well at tearing the living daylights out of paint and is much quicker than either sanders or heat

I'm installing replacement windows which requires stripping at least 100 years of paint from the old exterior stops and edges of the old casings, as well as the sills. The outside surface of the exterior stops contains a thick (1/16"+?) layer of caulking used to seal aluminum storm window frames 5 or 6 decades ago. The old caulking varies in consistency from rock hard to slightly pliable. Will this tool deal with the narrow stops (1/2" - 1") and the old caulking? I expect to have to use a heat gun and scraper at the corners, bit how close to the corners can I expect this tool to reach? FYI, I've done 5 windows so far and the paint removal requires the greatest effort, by far. Have a dozen more to go.

BEST ANSWER: The tool will handle the narrow stops no problem, but the caulking will be an issue
What will prevent the problem with side guards coming off?
