+9 Deal Score
4,914 Views
Graco paint sprayers are on sale at Home Depot currently for up to 25% off. A couple that I saw worth noting were the project magnum plus and the TrueCoat 360DS.

Sale is through 1/28/2018.

List of Graco Sprayers:

https://www.homedepot.com/s/Graco...ext&NCNI-5

Slight update:

Some models may be cheaper at Lowe's after coupon. The only one I could verify as much cheaper at Lowe's was the TrueCoat VSP, but I didn't spend a ton of time looking through all the models. You may want to double check which model you're interested in at Lowe's prior to purchasing.

Amazon has also dropped the prices on some models to match the Home Depot sale if you prefer them as a retail option.

I got my x19 cart for $4XX a year ago at Lowes. $535 with free shipping is a good price. Thanks & repped.

Thanks, I need to pick up an airless painter. Probably a loaded question but what are the advantages of the the more expensive painters? I have 50 gallons to paint to go through.

I'm not an expert but I've done some research on these before. I think the biggest issue is that the cheaper models can't be rebuilt or serviced, and they start to leak after 40-45 gallons of paint. I went through an X5 in about 3 years of light usage and have a Project Painter Plus now that replaced it. But I don't do professional work, mostly just house renovation projects so I can't justify spending over 600 on a sprayer for now.

Ditto. Some of the more expensive models offer fast replacement of the pump assembly. The bigger motors also last longer.

If you are meticulously clean when you are done as you can imagine any one of these painters will last awhile. There are guys that swear buy the $170 harbor freight model that is akin to these lower priced ones. Obviously they clean super good after finishing a job. Take a look at youtube for cleaning procedures you will be glad you did. Happy painting.

Good find. I've been eyeballing the X5 for a while now. Anyone with experience with the X5.. is it any good for fencing and a 12x10 shed exterior?

I was looking at the Harbor freight model too, which is a probably a copy. I guess I'll need to see which comes out a better deal, Home depot, Lowes + coupon or HF + coupon.

Look into the tip size required on the paint and cross reference to the max tip size these list. I was running into some issues on the X5 with fairly standard paint. X7 steps up the size and higher from there.

I've considering purchasing a sprayer for some upcoming work, maybe 15 gallons of paint for a handful of 6-panel doors and 4-inch trim. The doors and trim would be new, not painting over already installed pieces.

My research has been wholly inconclusive with sprayers that work best for detail work like trim, without a lot of overspray. Can any SDers chime in for a model recommendation, or should I stick to a roller and brush? The paint that I have right now is latex based.

The coupon is a great idea. Look at the disclaimer on the HF coupon I don't think it excludes paint sprayers. I have seen the HF paint sprayer for $170 which is better than most coupons. Good luck.

The HF sprayer would be a good option for someone needing to do their own home, as would some of these home owner Graco models. I would recommend using a smaller tip like a 208 up to a 310 fine finish tip if you aren't used to spraying, it will be slower going but still much faster than brushing and rolling alone. I have a Graco 395 that was gifted to me and it is awesome, but the average homeowner is going to be fine with a lower priced model.

208 to 308 fine finish tip for the doors and trim and some quick trusses will be your best friend.

If you are not removing the doors from the house to paint, then stay with a brush/ roller. Using a airless sprayer will speed the painting process (applying and drying times) but you need to factor in the clean up time. The clean up of the airless pump is most important if you plan to use the machine in the future. I have several sprayers with the graco magnum DX being my first. This unit has lasted me 12+ years with around 120 gallons of service.

Understanding the numbers on the spraying tips will allow you to get the most of your machine. The first number is the spray size 2xx means that you will get a 4" fan, 5xx is 10" fan. This is assuming that you are keeping the proper distance from the surface getting painted. The last two numbers is the orifice size. Most interior paints (not thinned) are good at x15 or x17 if you want to push a higher volume of paint. Acrylic latex paints, I normally use a x17 or the body work and x15 for trim. The information on the back of the paint/ stain can will suggest the recommended orifice size for the solution.

I hope this info gets you started on the right track to getting, using and maintaining the right tool.
