  • I got this at Home Depot to replace the Wagner “Project” one I also got there. They are both AWEFUL. They don’t atomize – even with thinner. They just splatter.
    It’s junk

  • I did a LOT of reading before purchasing this item. I was very surprised by the negative reviews given to ALL of the paint sprayers–any brand, any model! Faced with the possibly of spending a hundred dollars to rent an industrial sprayer to paint two doors, I decided that buying a small one would work–as long as it DID work.

    I painted both doors and I had NO problems whatsoever. This little paint sprayer performed perfectly for these relatively small jobs. Painting the exterior of an entire house with this little sprayer is too ambitious–and not what this sprayer was really intended for. Here are a few things I did based on other reviewers comments”

    I followed the directions–all of them.

    I bought a very cheap paint strainer and strained the paint before putting it in the sprayer. Remember, ANY debris can clog it–why take a chance when it costs only a buck to get a paint strainer?

    I practiced a bit on a piece of wood just to get used to it and to be sure the flow rate was ok. The rate is adjustable and you want to get that right before doing anything on your real project.

    I propped the doors up to nearly vertical. Someone wrote that this sprayer worked best when not held at an angle. So I didn’t lay them across two saw horses as I might have before reading that. I propped them up against an eight foot ladder.

    I did four LIGHT coats. Yes, four LIGHT coats. They dried very quickly. By the time I was done with a coat on both doors, I was able to return to the first door for the next coat. Light coats are the key to professional results. They paint went on evenly and it never dripped or curtained.

    I did use the larger of the two paint containers and I will say that got a little heavy. I’m a pretty strong woman but if you aren’t that strong, this is something to think about. I just didn’t want to have to refill it. However, if I had it to do over again, I might have used the smaller one.

    This sprayer really wasn’t that noisy. I did own one about fifteen years ago which made a real clattering racket. This one sounds like a smooth running vacuum cleaner. Its not quiet but certainly not that bad.

    Cleanup was easy. I did it as soon as I was finished and again, I FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS. My paint sprayer looks brand new.

    This is a great paint sprayer for small to medium household jobs. If you follow the instructions I think you’ll be pleased with the results!

  • Bought this product from a local hardware store and was informed that it is for “indoor painting and staining” and in the instruction manual it restates this information. I bought one of them and had to keep the spray nozzle about 2 inches from the surface with a base paint just to get an even spray. Anything further then 2 inches and it was spattering all over the place. This is NOT a heavy duty sprayer.

    I returned the product and informed the workers (of a big chain that I will not name) that the spray was really weak and was not performing even close to the standard promoted by the product. I ended up getting a replacement and having a go one more time.

    This time I-
    Made sure the paint was 75-80 deg. as per the clerk
    Stirred the paint thoroughly
    Tried many different spray patterns and nozzle adjustments
    Reset the unit many times as if it were new

    Nothing worked. I will be bringing this product back to the store asap. BTW It was on clearance for $32. Not surprised. Do not buy this product if you plan on doing anything past staining a small coffee table or wooden figurines. I’m sure it would be a great tool for a wood carver that made small toys. Past that I would stay away.

  • Because it won’t work on ANY type of paint straight from the can, your first thirty minutes will be spent making your brand new paint. . . sprayable.

    Oil-based? Whew! The amount of solvent will make the house stink for a week!

    Latex? Same deal. After thinning this down to near water. . . and working for nearly three hours. . . I am just now getting the finish I wanted . . . ON SOMETHING THAT SHOULD HAVE TAKEN 30-40 MINUTES!

    Even moderate results would be worth a “spray on” finish. . . but this cost me the entire day and $75 bucks!

    Don’t follow my lead (I already bought it) follow my review. . . don’t expect big sprayer results from a half-baked hand held that hasn’t the “oomf” to take any paint straight from the can. . .

  • This product is poorly designed and its performance is not acceptable.

    It is labeled on the box for use with oil base paints and stains. The manual also indicates it for latex paint. It may work for stains but fails completely for paint use.

    -The material being sprayed needs to be the consistency of PLAIN WATER in order for the gun to accept it and produce anything close to an acceptable spray pattern without spitting constantly.
    (If you adding enough solvent to your paint to get this consistency it means you need at least 6 coats to get good coverage, takes lots of drying time in between, and also means you have to completely clean the unit after each coat. A big waste of time and solvent. ent.
    The model I just purchased is also slightly different from the manual instructions it came with and the plastic foam gasket on inside of the paint cup is not removable for cleaning. (how stupid!!) This means you cannot properly and completely clean it and it will contaminate the next color when the next material is loaded. -This makes it practically disposable and a waste of time of money even for casual home user.
