Graco Magnum 257025 Project Painter Plus Paint Sprayer is less than $200 today on Amazon.

https://smile.amazon.com/gp/produ...UTF8&psc=1

I've been watching this sprayer for several months, and this is the lowest I've seen it (normally above $230). This model is below the X5 and X7 that I feel are likely overkill for my needs. I'm going to use it for some kitchen cabinet doors I've been making, along with the RAC X guard and 310 low pressure tip (not included).

PS: This is my first post, sorry if I messed up anything!

For you folks painting furniture type items ....an airless is the wrong tool
Get a Fuji or Graco HVLP

Quote from PepsiKrazy :
Can anyone compare this to the X5? Amazon has had that for ~$271 for a while now and Home Depot sells it with the extension for $280 somewhat frequently. Wondering if it's worth it for a regular home-owner with occasional projects like small cabinets, wainscoting, and similar.

I have both. For your situations you won't notice the difference. Get the cheaper one. This is a great sprayer for a homeowner to get great results. Just watch some youtube videos and practice on some cardboard until you get a good spray pattern and don't put it on too heavy. You will love the results.

Just wanted to add my 2 cents here.

I bought the X5 (one model up from this one) in anticipation of painting my entire house. However, I decided to return it for a few reasons (before I even opened it).

I won't go into all the reasons but two things I think people should consider are:

1) With brushing/rolling, it's easier to pause and start up again. Less prep and cleanup time so if you think you won't be able to go for a long stretch (say a few hours per day over a few consecutive days in a row) then rolling is probably faster, especially if you get the hang of cutting in corners with a brush and not using painter's tape. Spraying will require lots of prep work covering trim, flooring, ceiling, etc.

2) The main reason I didn't go with a sprayer is because every pro who sprays says they backroll with a roller anyway. So for the average homeowner it's still going to require extra time to setup and clean all your equipment. This is needed to get the paint to adhere well.

All that being said, if I had a bunch of uneven surfaces, or cabinets or trim to do, I'd probably go with a sprayer. And if you're going to get a sprayer for your walls and ceiling, grab an extension off eBay.

Sprayers take longer than rolling/cutting in with a brush. If your ceiling is a different color than your wall, you have to tape everything and put up those thin plastic sheets. It's a nightmare. I found rolling much quicker.

While I want to agree, I think we're in the beginning of a longer streak of inflation in all assets. With the Fed committed to 0% indefinitely and changing their mandate for inflation to run above target, I'm afraid the waiting game could work against us. Also we have a housing shortage already and on top of that people can now WFH making them more valuable than before. And the largest population group currently are those in peak house buying years... not to mention record global liquidity. Too many tailwinds for housing prices IMO

I bought this to spray the 70s wood paneling in my basement this past summer. It used alot more paint than if I was to roll the walls. It would of taken about 2-3 gallons if rolled but I ended up using 4.5 gallons. (Beher Marquee). For that size job it was good but wish I had the hopper fed one for doing smaller jobs like single doors and small amounts of trim. It took a bit of practice since it was my first time spraying. Also had some dripping effect on the walls but I think that was from the humidity more than overspray.

Can you sprat straight from the can or does the paint need to be diluted first?
No thinning required for an airless. Note I have this unit and my intention was to paint our dining room set on which it did a great job. I have since used it to paint like 25 (+) interior doors and one exterior door. I did get the rac X guard and 2 FFLP tips. With these units the prep and clean up is way more work vs the actual spraying and they leave a power mess everywhere. Plus these lower end ones do not have a real consistent pressure at the gun. But for general use stuff this thing has been a real work horse for me.

I own one. It's ok, but mine clogged a lot and much paint was wasted as a result. On my project, due to over spray and the 1900 square feet multiples by ceilings/walls, etc....I switched to an 18" roller and saved a lot of trouble. I plan on using my sprayer for treating my docks soon, but will be backrolling those too.

Lol, that won't turn out well for you.

We are under contract to build a house. In the past 6 months they have raised lumber input prices by 100k, and it's not a massive house. Ours is already worth 20% more than what we contracted for and they haven't even dug the hole.

I am sure places can cut some corners and give you bent/twisted crow lumber. But good luck with that.
Depending on the size of house, the total cost of lumber is probably $10K max. You're getting worked over my man.

Low inventory and low interest = high prices. However, if unemployment stays anywhere near where it is and there's a massive correction interest will likely increase dramatically and banks lending will likely become far more selective. meaning the monthly overhead is effectively the same as paying a bit more now at a far lower interest rate vs paying less later at a higher rate - particularly if banks lending tightens.

Obviously I do t ah e a crystal ball. But this is essentially what's happened in the past. In the last big correction getting a loan was incredibly hard. The only people that really capitalized on the lower prices were people with cash

Yeah, I could see an increase, but a 100K increase in lumber? must be building a humongous mansion on an island.

A 2x6x10 is less than $13.00 at harry the homeowner price, not contractor pricing.

Went ahead and picked one up knowing that I've got a few rooms left to paint plus exterior work as well.

Lumber prices have skyrocketed in some areas... I'm working on doing an addition and lumber a year ago was looking at $2k, now it's over $7k for the same list of lumber......... 3yrs ago i bought a 2x4x8 for $2.89 now that same board is $8.95 :\

This is a fantastic price I purchased it about two years ago at Home Depot during Black Friday and didn't do as good as this. I really love this sprayer it's easy to move around it paints excellent and pretty easy to clean.
