    MFE 40 Metabo Wall Chaser, has anyone used one?

    This video, with the discs used on the right looks impressive.

    I have an MFE30 and it's good. Wasn't aware that there was an MFE40.

    Same as Risteard.

    I’ve had mine 2 years next week, can’t fault it at all, the best blades I find are the turbo blades. They cut anything and last far longer than a diamond tipped blade.
    The vacuum is the important bit now lol

    I've used a Metabo, not sure which one. Excellent piece of kit, not withstanding its quite heavy, and you need to be careful when using it.

    Agree about the associated vacuum, definitely a requirement.

    The metabo blades wore down from almost new to thin and short in 2.5 tracks in an ex housing executive house built in the late 60’s, the blades started to glow red lol

    These ones did?
    At about £110 a set they'd need to do a heck of a lot more tracks than that.

    No, they’re ordinary ones, looking at these, are they designed to save chipping out?

    Looks almost like it’s grinding the entire chase out, like those things that strip up the tarmac.

    Just watched a YouTube video of them, some job alright.

    Wonder if they’d work in a MFE30 lol

    Yes...just not sure if they can handle walls that are anything more than thermalite. Hence this thread:tearsofjoy:

    I still don't know if they really work in an MFE 40. A rip saw with a blunt wood blade would cut through thermalite block after all. If they do work and last long enough I'd replace my chaser and if required my dust extractor for it.
