I purchased the paintshaver pro 2015 after doing a fair amount of Internet research.
I am an indentured carpenter and a building official ( Building Inspector)
This machine met all of my expectations.
I have found that due to the depth of the weatherboards and that they are not always hard back against the lower weatherboard : I have to cant the machine on an angle to cut the full width of the underside of the board - that is to say if the long face of the blade at the top opening was longer then it would cut the whole width of the bottom face of the board.
Certainly a clean and safer option for stripping/ prepping timber weather boards. Which is essential with lead based primers and materials.
I have a cheap vacuum cleaner that works fine ($100) and have not used a higher end vacuum which I suspect would be better, my one requires regular emptying, which I suspect any vacuum would as the volume of product stripped builds up quickly. As I already had this vacuum and do not have the tax benefits of runing the purchase through a business I will keep using the current one then consider a better model when up for renewal.
This is like any power tool, ( or hand tool) and does require some manual dexterity, certainly for me no problem to use and have improved my handling skills with it rapidly.
My house is two storey and I am working off multiple levels on a scaffold I have not taken a stopwatch to measure how long it takes to prep but if you asked me I would say about an hour per square metre - this includes set up and pack up clean up , Paintshaver stripping, orbital 60 grit and 80 grit sanding, hand scraping detailing in corners against scribers , some hand sanding, arising the bottom corner of the weatherboards , removing down pipes and brackets.
So after that one hour per square metre you are ready to get your paint brush out.
If you had bigger walls (20plus square metres) without detailing or windows I suspect your time expectations could reduce some.
I found that by turning the tool 90 degrees ! And by tilting the engine up from the work surface I could get close (25mm)into scribers minimising the hand work internal corners would be further out but I have not got to the one I have to do yet. (Disclaimer/warning- when you tilt/cant the tool stripped product can fly out and I use personal protective safety gear)
Note that this is a part time project for me and I am not working on it for more that five hours at a time so if you are doing eight hours or more you may become more time efficient.
Some degree of physical strength and fitness / stamina is required as you have to hold the paintshaver in front of you and above and below you depending on your working platform level- I set my scaffold so that I adjust the working levels to approximately 1 metre increments, thus reducing crouching/knealing and overhead/ stretching.
I found the purchasing process excellent and very proffessional advice and service.
Delivery was prompt and up to usual courier standards- my dog scares all the couriers away so I always have to pick up from the depot :)
Bottom line do your research ask any questions you have and you should be very happy with the product.

Great tool, I was dreading removing the 80 years worth of paint from my house exterior, but this makes it an almost enjoyable task! On delivery, I was pleased to find that the supplied hose fitted straight onto my existing industrial vacuum cleaner without needing any additional adapters. I easily achieved a good finish on the mix of Matai, Rimu & Pine boards, though 2 or 3 Kahikatea boards were left in a rough condition requiring extensive sanding. Also, hard to do internal corners where 2 walls meet, had to resort to scraping & sanding about 200mm of paint in the corner because the handle design prevented getting in close to the corner. Would be nice to have the option to turn the handles/grinder 90 degrees to get in awkward areas such as boards that are close to the ground.

I was becoming very frustrated with the time it was taking me with prep, had enough of sniffing paint stripper, my heat gun was great for some applications. Some one suggested the Metabo machine.Thank god for you tube because from the reviews this other machine called the paint shaver pro came through as the one to buy.Rang matt and received it 2 days later. Unfortunately with weather i have only used it once but it's going to be great,just need to let the machine do the work for me.I could not believe how heavy my vacuum cleaner was,the bag was full of fine shavings, it works.

What a great tool, strips paint off weather board at about 1m per 20 seconds. Take the time to get use to how the tool works and your results will be better.

I hope you are well just thought I would give you an update on how the paint Shave pro went on that job in Remura you had a look at and gave me a demonstration,
It worked amazingly well and was reasonably tidy with the vacuum system attached I was doing windows on that very first job with extremely good results as well as the weatherboards, I have also recently used it on another job walls and windows and it worked just as good there, I am telling everybody that I meet about how good the machine is and buy one , at the master painters meeting we recommended it be put forward to tool of the year
I am happy for you to use this email as a recommendation or people can also ring me I do not mind,

Paint Shaver Pro 2012 – This is a great tool after you’ve got the hang of it and it’s not for the absent minded as it has exposed blades in two surfaces. Key learning so far includes – 1. Let the tool to the work and avoid applying too much pressure on the weather boards with the tool unless you want nice deep circular indentations to fill later, 2. Slower is better to avoid excessive amounts of sanding and refinishing later, 3. So much faster than a heat gun for large areas, although the heat gun is still great for getting in to the tight spaces. All things considered a great piece of kit.

I bought this to remove lead based paint from my villa, what was taking me forever with a heat gun became incredibly easy with the paintshaver, I have removed all the paint off the weatherboards and repainted with a stunning result for a house that was in such disrepair, if I could post photos I would
