5-0 out of 5 stars Paid for itself the first job
This paint remover does the job; takes the paint off down to the wood and it never gums up with paint. I used it to strip paint from a fifty year old house with many layers of paint. It took me 4 days to strip the whole house. I estimate it would have taken twice as long to scrape the house by hand, and I would not have done nearly as good a job. I dulled four of the carbide blades to strip the whole house. The tool is light enough to operate with one hand. However, there are some tricks to using this tool:

- You have to wear goggles, (not just safety glasses) earplugs, a dust mask, gloves, and I'd recommend coveralls. This tool throws a lot of dust and small chips. I did not use a vacuum because I felt the hose would slow me down too much, but a vacuum should make the job much cleaner.

- Watch out for nails. You have to set the nails before you strip the paint. Just give the nails a wack before stripping. If you do snag a nail, it will either shave off the top or rip it out of the board. It's something you don't want to do too often.

The tool is well made except for the little doors covering the rabbet blades; I busted one off the first day. It has a nice long and flexible cord. Pet peeve: the switch turns off too easily.

It's not perfect, it's just better than any other tool for stripping paint. And, it'll pay for itself on the first job.

5-0 out of 5 stars Professional Painters Need This Tool
I just spent the last two days using this paint stripper and I gotta tell you this is an amazing tool. It will shave (no pun intended) hours off the time it takes to strip paint from a house. I was worried about the price, but it has paid for itself already. I am ripping paint off of cedar siding in 1/4 of the time it usually takes. The depth-of-cut adjustment lets me adapt to different paint millage, and it is really easy to use. If you have read other reviews, you will know that the little plastic doors that protect the 90, 180 and 270 degree cutters are really flimsy and WILL pop off, but it is still the best paint stripping tool I have come across. Make sure that you set any nail heads that may be in your way, because this machine will rip and warp any nail haead it comes in contact with. You will need ear protection, and the 3M full face mask is a must when working in warm climates. Try this tool. It will save you so much time and so much hassel. If you don't like it, send it back.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fast is the right word
I bought this tool about a year ago, and has you've read in the other reviews it's all true. I took down some 6" redwood siding, 4" fir and pine boards to the bare wood in no time. A word of caution on softer woods wider than 3", take your time and get use to the machine. It will gouge on the edge at times, depending... how your reach is to the work. You either even it up with a pass from the oppisite side, sand with a 6" inch orbital down to finer grit, or patch and sand. I used it on latex paints so far and gumming was not a problem, plus good life from each edge of the cutting bits (4)... if you counter sink any nails. Attching my shopvac made less to clean up! Also rough grain wood texture will be smooth flat when done, you may do some light sand blasting to match the texture or stick with chem/citrus strippers. Goggles recomened.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny
I bought this tool to take about 17 layers of paint off the cedar siding of my house. It works great! My choices were the Metabo, Porter Cable and The Paint Shaver (which was by far the most expensive). The Metabo was the only tool of the three not listed on eBay the day I purchased it.

This tool does a great job on siding and even facia and window casings. You need to be careful on softer wood like pine with this tool. It can easily take off the paint as well as a hefty slice of wood.

Be sure to purchase plenty of extra blades if you are taking off lots of old hardened paint. They will get dull, however you can turn the blades 180 degrees and use the other side before you have to replace them.

This tool is extremely loud. Be sure you have good ear protection. Also, it throws chips everywhere at high velocity. So good goggles and a dust mask or respirator will save you some agony.

Overall, for the money this is a great tool. I highly recommend it over manual scraping or liquid/paste strippers.

5-0 out of 5 stars Savings outweigh expense
I purchased the Metabo paint reomover about 2 months ago. I used it to remove about 6 layers of paint from the fascia boards on my house. This tool works amazingly well and is very easy to use. When all of the paint was removed, i gave the fascia boards a quick once over with a random orbit sander. When finished, the fascia boards looked brand new. One coat of primer and two top coats of paint and presto, my home looks great. Doing a thorough job in the first place prevents you from having to return and "fix" it in a couple of years.
Initially I was very skeptical of how this tool would work as well as the seemingly steep cost. I wondered how a hand held power tool the size of an angle grinder could cost sooo much. In the end, I feel this tool easily saved me money because a paint contractor would probably charge me a small fortune to take all of my homes fascia boards down to bare wood before repainting.
My home was built after paint containing lead was banned so I opted not to use the dust collection built into this tool. One gripe is that I broke one of the small tabs on one of the plastic blade covers within 2-3 hours of use. The plastic covers should be made more durable considering the cost of this tool.
If you are removing paint on a significant amount of wood or on a home with very much wood siding, I would suggest you purchase the extra 10 piece blade set ).
Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase of this tool. The tool was delivered in about 4-5 working days (as stated). ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars The barrel grip vesion shines, but see Ridgid for top handle
I own the barrel-grip version of this jigsaw and really like it; although, I had to buy it from Tools Plus since Amazon doesn't carry it. I especially like the 12' long cord.

I use the barrel-grip version of this jigsaw for a variety of remodeling tasks, but it's invaluable as a coping tool, particularly when working with hardwood crown moulding. To use the jigsaw for coping, I highly recommend replacing the factory foot with the Collins Coping Foot (from Collins Tool Company), which allows you to make all sorts of extreme cuts. The saw is held upside down so that it's easy to see the blade and accuratly follow the coping line, and this is where the barrel-grip version of the jigsaw comes in handy because it's so easy to grip upside down. There's no handle to get in the way. I'd give the barrel grip version 5 stars without reservation.

The other day I was dismayed to see the exact same saw as the top handle Metabo jigsaw for sale at Home Depot. The only difference was that it was marketed under the Ridgid brand and cost about $30 less than the Metabo. I looked at the Ridgid very carefully and it was identical to the Metabo in all ways except color. I suspect there must be a shared product licensing deal between Ridgid and Metabo. The good side of Ridgid selling the same saw is that accessories like the anti-splinter insert should be widely available wherever there's a Home Depot. The 4 star rating is because Metabo charges $30 more than Ridgid for the exact same jigsaw.

5-0 out of 5 stars Power to spare
Anybody using power tools realises the benefit of having power enough to do the job and some to spare, it's a good feeling to realise that the machine is not going to tear its guts out inspite of it being pushed. Well this machine gives me that feeling when I'm cutting 2x timber with the orbital mode switched on to max. all the other features are just a plus, as far as I'm concerned, I want that work done well. That's not to say I don't appreciate the efficency of dust collection, or the low decibel of the motor whine. So go out and buy this machine it may be a few bucks more ... but it will not disappoint

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Jigsaw
I ended up buying the barrel handle version from Tools Plus because Amazon didn't carry it (I did ask Amazon if they could get it). As others have said, it's very smooth, the blade changing mechanism is better than Bosch's, and it feels sturdier than the Bosch which I was able to pick up at Home Depot. While I was cutting a rail for a sliding tub door, the blade jammed into the aluminum, but the body of the jigsaw absorbed most of the shock.

If you use the vacuum extension, dust doesn't fly all over the room. It lands in a neat pile directly under where you cut. The blower also keeps the blade clear so you can see what it's cutting. The included cord is nice and long. The case is humungous; no idea why they made it so big.

The biggest plus the Bosch has is you can get parts for it anywhere. The Metabo takes Bosch blades, but it takes some digging to find the anti-splintering inserts, etc. Metabo has a bunch of other accessories that no one seems to carry in the US (ask the MetaboUSA.com folks for the catalog page), like a really expensive edge guide, no mar feet, etc.

5-0 out of 5 stars Metabo Shibato
This is without question a great jigsaw, better than the old Bosch reliable. However, if you're in the market for very high end jigsaws, you'll have to also consider the Fein (also from Germany) and which you'll probably need to special order. The one downfall of Metabo, which you need to be aware of, is that if it breaks, it's a pain in the [rear] to get it fixed. (In America, at any rate.) Good Luck!

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST OF THE BEST
There are alot of good saws out there that have a few good features but there's only one saw that has all the good features. The Metabo STEB 105 PLUS is a great saw. It has a blower so you can see your work, it has a real good blade changing lever, orbital settings, and one of the most important features to me is I have A great view of the blade and my work piece. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Beats Dewalt
As a building contractor, I use and abuse cordless drills everyday. I own 3 Dewalt drills and the 15.6 Metabo. The metabo beats dewalt in every way. I have never had any trouble with the drill or the charger. The case is a little flimsey but still works and seems to hold up. The reversed direction switch takes a little getting used to. This drill has more power than the 18V dewalt and is handier to use. The drill is well balanced and seems to fit into tight spaces better than others. This drill is a must have in my toolbox.
Scott Staudt

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Drill With Issues
The BST 15.6 Plus has an actual torque of around 212 inch lbs, or the 24 Nm (Newton meters) as listed at the Metabo web site in Germany. This is not adequate power for my needs, but should be powerful enough for most. The impluse function works OK. The batteries fit very well. The case is strong. The plastic bit holder is a joke that bites my hand. The variable speed switch is rough in activation, but works OK in performance. Weight is 950 gms for bat., 1334 for drill for 2284 gms (2.28kg) total or 5.03lbs, NOT the 4.2 lbs (1,9kg) advertised.

Forward/reverse switch is REVERSED and hard to access, due to being too far forward. Lots of fun picking up this drill after using my Ryobi or DeWalt and the direction is OPPOSITE. I like the locking action on the spindle for bit changing with the chuck, but hex bits tend to fall out of the chuck if I am not very careful in loading and in getting it very tight. This eats up my time, but would not be a problem for use with drill bits, as it bites really well into drill bits. The handle is too large, making it uncomfortable for my hands. I wear large gloves and so my hands are not tiny, but my hands are too small for this drill, especially with gloves. The case that comes with it is a cheap plastic excuse for a case without a real hinge and with poor latches. My Ryobi case and DeWalt cases are superior. Batteries are made well, but they tend to bend up the connections in the charger, which is not made so well. For the money, I don't think this drill is worth it. If it cost $... like my 18V Ryobi, I would say "wow." It seems to have about 60% of the power of an 18V DeWALT hammerdrill. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great features - nice for lefties
I have had this drill for over a year, and have been very pleased with it. The impulse feature works well for starting screws, and the reverse direction switch is in a good spot for left handed users. Plenty of power - never any trouble with the keyless chuck - the two batteries have held up well.
Only drawbacks are - no Metabo cordless trim saw to share the battery/charger, and taking some grief from my buddies for buying a German drill.

1-0 out of 5 stars lemon
I would not advise anyone to buy this drill. First, its base is too heavy, making this tool awkward to handle. Secondly, the chuck is difficult, doesn't hold the screw tips firmly, and they ALWAYS slip out. Also screw tips & drill bits get stuck in the chuck at a crooked angle when trying to tighten them. Third, sometimes the impulse mechanism doesn't work at all, and other times the drill is stuck in impulse mode. Fourth, The batteries burn out after 6 months of moderate use. Fifth, the case they give you is cheap plastic with latches that don't close, causing the contents to spill out when it is set down upright. Sixth, replacement batteries are impossible to find (if you even desire to), whereas DeWalt batteries are everywhere. I could go on and on. (...) I would personally recommend the Dewalt 14.4.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don"t waste your money
I bought this drill about 18 mos. ago. It has seen moderate use. I am now on my third charger and second set of baterries which recently started failing ; not two mention three trips to the repair shop. The chuck is very difficult to keep tightened.I could go on but suffice it to say this is the worst power tool purchase I have ever made. Metabo used to be a good company but this thing is junk. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Nice grinder!
Its the first grinder I ever had and I think its awsome hard to slow down easy and change disks.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best small grinder available
I am a commercial mechanical contractor using tools in the harshest environments. Having used almost all brands, I have found Metabo to be the only one that holds-up. Forget Bosch, Makita, Porter-cable, Dewalt, Milwaukee, and Hitachi. I have tried them all and none will last under heavy use. Metabo's motor technology and general tool ruggedness is superior to all I have tried. Fein might make a comparable product, but at a much higher price.

5-0 out of 5 stars 4-1/2" Angle grinder ultimate workhorse
I have only owned/worked with two Metabo angle grinders in the last 8 years. It's all I have needed. I own one that is 7 years old, and has only ever needed a switch slide, power cord, and brushes. I have worked it extrememly hard, at jobs which destroyed Milwaukee and DeWalt grinders in a day or two: cutting apart 330(35/15)Stainless steel fixtures and racks for repair using an .040 cutting disk. I worked the thing so hard I needed to keep my welding gloves on to hold the gear box. (NOT something I would recommend for any other angle grinder.) It has suffered numerous falls from welding tables, tool carts, and even ladders, and kept right on running. The only reason I am buying another is aesthetics: the old one is ugly, covered in pockmarks and the logo is worn off.

5-0 out of 5 stars Metabo W7-115 Quick Change 4 1/2" Angle Grinder
The Metabo is the best electric angle grinder I have ever used. I have been in the steel construction industry for 20 years. I use a grinding machine every day, and by far the one grinder I prefer to use is the Metabo. I have used Milwaukee, Bosch, Hilti, Makita, Dewalt, Porter Cable, just to name a few, and none of those machines even comes close to the Metabo in terms of power and smoothness. This little Metabo can grind as well as a bigger machine from the competitors. The Metabo might be a little more expensive than some of the other brands, but if you are looking for a long lasting powerful machine used by steel tradesman, the Metabo is the one. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars A cordless screwdriver with serious design flaws
This screwdriver has three serious flaws.

First, it is a bulky handful. You need to have an immense hand to hold it easily.

Second, the switch is ill placed and awkward to use.

Third, and most important, it has only one speed and that is top speed. So you spend much of your time trying to reset the blade (Phillips or not) in the head of the screw after the blade pops out. And it pops out because the Metabo only operates at full speed. The best way to use it is to preset the screw with a regular screwdriver and then use the Metabo.

But that's a waste of time.

I'd return mine for a refund if I could find the receipt.

So don't buy it. Look instead at the Dewalt. Same price, better features.

3-0 out of 5 stars Like Driving in Europe
WEll, after reading All these great reviews i decided to TRY it out for myself. YES, i was impressed with the proformance and im' able to live with the rocker switch issue, it reminds me much like driving in Europe (driving left)eventually you get use to it, Someday im' going "customize" this unit by "reversing" the switch wires. When i purchase "cordless" equipment one of the most important factors of quality is how a manufacture designs the battery locking device. I can assure you that because of this YOU will someday find yourself adding another "way" to use duct tape. IF you remove the battery, you'll find that the "hook/tab" is as thin as a credit card and about the same material, a thin plastic. I dont' abuse my tools by no means, but on the occassional "fall", you would expect for the unit to withstand some knocking around. I hate spending money on what i believe is a good product, especially after doing my homework and finding out that I discovered the "WEAK" link. sorry to inform you all (if you haven't found out for yourselves YET) that the battery release thumb tabs are really a BAD design for such a nice cordless. :( Notice where the "hook" (male) engages into the "body" (female) section, you will see that contact surface is only a fraction of an inch, i guess more like 1/32th. Order one of these only IF you have a roll of duct tape in your garage, you'll need it. I guess this was the reason "Metabo" did'nt design for the battery to sit in a charger (battery is a rear plug in type) so that you would only have to UNdo the duct tape once to change out the BAD battery with the spare. Happy, well you know....

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Tool
I was going to go with a Panasonic because of their excellent battery life, but the design of their cordless screwdriver just wasn't to my liking. After reading these reviews and paying the most attention to the battery life I purchased this little gem. The first project was using it to put-on and snug down bolts on the construction of a 24' X 30' metal garage building (60+ lbs of bolts). From morning til after dark I used this screwdriver, and it did great. It needed recharging after all that but to have lasted the day with what I was doing was really impressive. I'm still on the second battery - 1st charge, I've put together 11 PC's with it and it's running like it's at full charge.

On the bad side I do agree with the reviewer who said the rocker switch should be front to back, totally agree, it's awkward at times.

Other than that the torque adjustment, the recharger, the batteries, the case, the holster, the material it's made out of, ... I'm thrilled with all of them ! Great screwdriver !

5-0 out of 5 stars A great little tool
I have had this power screwdriver a few weeks now, and it is really a great little tool. It does everything that I have asked it to and more. I have used it several times (a couple of times for an extended period), and I have just now had to switch batteries. It has exceptional power for such a small tool. I really recommend this tool for the get up on the roof type jobs as well as a second unit in the shop. Work safely!

5-0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably Handy
I've had this drill for almost a year now and figured I should say a little something about it. I'm an electrician and constantly kept finding myself caught between two power/speed factors, those being my 18 volt drill or a screw driver. For instance, trim plates, cover plates, p-rings, box extensions pretty much anything secured with a #6 or #8 screw not to mention plugs and switches, these are an excellent example of where this tool has become invaluable to me. 18 volt drill? too big and clunky to drag around for small screw work like that. Screw driver? too slow, if you've done alot of trim work you know what I mean. The solution? the Power Grip. What a handy device this thing is, fits right in your belt bag like a fat screwdriver or a pants pocket for that matter. It's the perfect tool for work that ranges in the middle of the power/speed dilemma. I carry the thing in my bag with the rest of my hand tools with a couple tips and just leave the flat head tip in it unless I'm gonna drive a screw or three. I couldn't be more pleased(well, maybe if they saw it in their hearts to have put a variable speed trigger in it). The battery life on this thing is shocking(seriously), if you use it like it was meant to be used you can go a week or two on one battery( I kid you not), unless you try to drive wood screws all day with it, but that's what the 18 volt is for, right? Ya the charge time is a little slow, but treat it right, don't throw it in the charger for 30 mins. use it and repeat the cycle, take it home when one dies and leave it over night you won't be disappointed. One more thing for you electricians out there, tired of gettin that cramped up wire nut hand? get one of those hex drive wire nut twisters pop it in your Power Grip, problem solved. ... Read more

I just recieved my order for the 10 piece set of carbide blades for the metabo paint remover. Yes, there were actually 10 blades in this set as stated. Ignore "am I missing something". His or her response is solely based on the picture showing only 3 blades. People shouldn't write reviews who don't know the facts!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Metabo works great! However, you will need extra blades
I bought a Metabo to strip 8 layers of paint from all of the moulding and window frames in my 1912 home. After using the tool for the first time I got rid of both of my heatguns. I didn't need them anymore, the Metabo could take care of everything. The price tag is really steep, but it has paid for itself in saved labor time.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Orbital on the market
I have 3 orbitals in my pro shop. This one is by far the best. Make sure you get the cloth bag if you can't connect to your dust collector. Very impressive power and performance. The dust bag even works well - unlike my Makita and Bosch. Vibration is minimal also. A GREAT sander. I do believe the new Rigid 6" is made by Metabo, so you may be able to save a few bucks.

3-0 out of 5 stars Random Orbital Sander
I've never used the Metabo, but you might want to consider the Ridgid R2610 6 Inch Sander. It's made by Metabo and has all the same features as the SXE450. In fact, the Ridgid comes with a dust collection adapter that will allow a 2 1/4" hose connection. Also, the price is right at $119.00. I give this product 3 stars due to its price compared to the Ridgid.

5-0 out of 5 stars Smooth and vibration-free
I purchased this sander after extensive research. I felt that the Fein 6", while excellent in all performance characteristics, was not worth the cost unless you are in a production situation. I looked at the 6" Porter Cable w/dust collection in a side-by-side comparison. The Metabo was significantly smoother, had a larger dust collection port, and really moved air into that port even without a vacuum hooked up. Now, after using it on six interior oak doors, I am thoroughly impressed. Though a little more expensive than the immediate competition, I know this is one of those tools where I will "complain about the price once", and enjoy using it for a long time after. Only "dings" are Metabo needs to include a case and some essential dust collection accessories.

5-0 out of 5 stars A SANDER THAT NEVER STOPS IMPRESSING ME!
I HAVE BEEN USING THIS SANDER FOR THREE MONTHS NOW, AND I CAN WITH A DOUBT SAY IT IS ONE THE BEST ORBITAL SANDERS I'VE USED THUS FAR.
