Huh... cheap alternative for the stag do
why is this thing even needed? Take up a roller, soak it up with water, brush the old wallpaper so its soaking wet, wait 5mins and just peal it off, watched some YT videos about this thing and Its much faster with the above method not this useless device which isnt even needed...

Extreme wallpaper stripping? Is this a new craze?

I thought this was bad enough. Would certainly make this more challenging.

Some wallpaper is an absolute nightmare to get off and in my experience, these tools are essential in those cases and they also make light work of the other stuff.
can i use this to clean the carpet?

Lol. Don't think you've done much wallpaper stripping.
In some instances soaking will work but if you're tackling ancient woodchip wallpaper stuck on with superglue then I'd use a steam stripper every time.
None in stock at my locals

But, he has watched YouTube - that makes him a professional!
2000w is not powerful enough, still hot but I recommend going for 4000w
Correct, the lower power ones are really slow to cover large rooms with.
For woodchip I also use one of these rotary scorers

before steaming.
+1 for a rotary scorer. Bought this stripper plus a scorer and made easy work of my walls.
A 4 kw machine may be better if you have big rooms or do a lot of decorating but for £12 this is ideal.

i'm guessing you have never tried one.

i used to use the technique you mentioned until someone loaned me one of these (different brand). i will stick with using steamers, as the make life so much easier and, for me, so much faster.
