Paintshaver® Pro – Paint Stripping/Lead Paint Removal Tools
Scroll to the bottom of the page for pricing and videos.
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 attached to a Certified HEPA vacuum, the Paintshaver® Pro meets the EPA’s RRP rules for stripping lead paint.
The Paintshaver® Pro has a cutter diameter of 2.7″ and an adjustable depth of cut (adjustable from 0” to .100”) which 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 2,000 square feet of surface area on lead paint and up to 4,000 square feet on non-lead paint.
The replaceable Diamond Tipped Blades will strip up to 20,000 sq. feet on wood, up to 2000 sq. feet on fiberglass/gelcoat and up to 200 sq. feet on concrete and steel.
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 New Double Handle Paintshaver® design reduces fatigue and is easier to use than the older Single Handle design. (Note: the head on the Double Handle Paintshaver® does not swivel like the older Single handle version)
The Paintshaver® Pro is available in three models. The 6 Amp Single Speed 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 Single Speed and 12 Amp BRUSHLESS Variable Speed models are designed for heavy duty applications such as heavy lead paint on older houses, concrete, fiberglass, metal surfaces and jobs where hitting nails is unavoidable. (NOTE: Before stripping, we recommend you try to set any nails below the surface if possible.)

LEAD PAINT WARNING: When stripping lead paint, always use a HEPA vacuum and NEVER use any of our products on asbestos. Lead paint is dangerous, so is critical that you take steps to insure that lead dust and chips do not get into the soil, are contained within your work area and the area is cleaned up properly. Information on how to safely handle your lead paint project can be found at the EPA RRP website: http://www2.epa.gov/lead/renovation-repair-and-painting-program.
