  • As a contractor, I bought this tool hoping that it would save me from having to lug around the air compressor needed for my old texture gun.

    When I used this tool, it just doesn’t have the output of my compressed air unit. It works OK, but if you have a lot of spraying to do, it just takes too long.

    Now I only use it for quick patching jobs. But even then, it is usually cheaper to buy a can of texture spray and save the labor time of cleaning this tool.

  • Ok, I bought this initially to do a wall , but used it for much more beacuse it was laying around, so I think i have some good advice for others considering this product. I wish i would have never bought it.

    It does exactly what it says it will do, but imo the result are sub par. This product is a gimmick that they sell in the paint area of the box stores. It uses a fan to blow out the texture and you “control” the texture by screwing on different sized nozzles. Think of strapping a hopper on top of a hair dryer with a small opening. That’s what you are buying here.

    It clogs, is very inaccurate and messy. Of course, one expects a mess, but the mess this machine makes is ridiculous.
    The result can be acceptable, but it takes a lot of practice, muscle and luck.

    If you have to diy, then buy the pro-style gun and hopper that uses a compressor. You can buy a cheap compressor, gun and hopper for just a little more money (40-50), but the convince and results are worth it. Especially the results.

    Also, don’t buy the texture that they sell along side this unit unless you plan to do a very small area. Buy the large bags they sell in the drywall area. The quality is better, it’s cheaper and it’s better to have more than you need, because you will always need more than you think.

  • Hardest part is 1. mixing the texture & 2. making sure you cover the areas you don’t want sprayed. does the trick & more efficient than the spray cans.

  • This tool was simple to use and easy to clean up. I recommend practicing on a scrap surface first and practice with different thicknesses of mixture. Also, make sure that your mixture (Sold seperately) is thoroughly blended. Chunks of material will stand out. For orange peel, I had a mixture that was roughly equivalent to pancake batter.

    One advantage of this over the spray cans is that it does not have the toxic fumes that the spraycans have, and it covers a large area very fast.

  • You have to have half a brain to use it, but once you tinker with it and get it figured-out, it’s an excellent homeowner’s tool for texturing or repairing small areas. I wouldn’t want to do a whole house with it, but closets, laundry areas, bathrooms and other smallish areas can be finished quickly and easily.

    Received it as a gift so I would at least get started on my “honey-do” list. I thought this gun was a toy and decided to use it just to prove my point. Was pleasantly surprised – after I figured-out the combinations of viscosity of the mix, nozzle-size and distance from the surface being sprayed, I can duplicate any of the four textures in the house.

    Is it messy? No, not compared to a professional tool. It is much less messy than a hopper gun/compressor and anyone who says differently has never used a “pro” hopper gun or seen a hopper gun used to spray texture. That’s messy; this is not. Spatter, bounce-back and overspray are confined to a small area, but that also means it’s not going to throw texture across the room – you have to be reasonably close to the surface you are spraying.

    I sprayed the ceilings in a small bedroom without making more of a mess than I made when taping and mudding the new drywall, so I’m happy with it and with the results.

    You have to practice with it; it’s not just how thick the mix is and which nozzle to use. It’s also distance from the surface, how fast you move it, the pattern wtih which you spray, and how long the mix has been standing. It’s fussy, but when you get a feel for it, you can do an excellent job.

    For small jobs, using it as it is intended, I highly recommend it.
