On the top of graco guns seems to be Graco airless x5. It works flawlessly and even if written instructions are not the best they come with a clear DVD that helps. It can spray in any direction and you only have to hold a light gun. The cleanup is painless. For water based paint, you can hook it to a hose and flush out the whole system. Probably took less time than cleaning brushes would have.
It’s very durable cause it’s made completely from metal and as all sprayers and also it does a great job of reaching areas that are not readily accessible with brushes or rollers.
Most common problems
A detected common problem of these guns is that Sprayer loses suction when you draw down to about 2″ of paint remaining in the can. Then as with any sprayer, set-up and clean-up take longer than brush, roller, or cup sprayer but it worth the results.
If you don’t want to become white or colored you need to buy a very good mask that cover all your body cause the back spray will be anywhere.
Another issue related to Graco guns is with hoses. Infact it could happen they leak badly at the knuckle joint which attaches to the spray gun.
Take care in changing the lever position cause some people had accident doing it that caused explosion with safety damages so we can say that there is an inherent safety flaw in the design that Graco has overlooked so it’s very important you buy and use safety glass!
