Any contractor or homeowner that has rented a paint sprayer has probably used an Airlessco airless paint sprayer at some point. The Airlessco airless paint sprayer line was first manufactured by Durotech Company in California in 1975.
They concentrated on developing airless paint sprayers and parts with a heavy influence on the rental market. The company was acquired by Graco in 2008 and continues to operate as one of its divisions, but the headquarters is still maintained in Moorprak, California.
Airlessco paint sprayers have been in the rental market since the beginning of the company. They specialized in easy-to-use and easy-to-maintain paint sprayer equipment that was designed to be used in the rental arena. They have service stations throughout the country and are an avid supporter of the American Rental Association. They maintain a technical support network that has a toll free number for their contractors and consumers. The Airlessco airless paint sprayer rental units feature LCD screens for simple understanding and a quick flush system that allows for fast cleanup. In fact, large home improvement centers, like Home Depot, carry the Airlessco brand for their rental units under the Graco name. Airlessco also provide professional grade airless paint sprayers for residential and commercial jobs. Their products have been known to withstand the rigors of consumers without professional knowledge. Graco has consistently been the number one supplier for airless paint sprayers in the United States and carry the Airlessco line under their company umbrella.
Range of Choices
Unlike some other brands of paint sprayers, Durotech only produces Airlessco airless paint sprayers. The two differences in the product lines are gas power and electric power. The Airlessco electric-powered paint sprayers range from the Airlessco SP200 ($379.00) and Airlessco SP400 ($1130.00) airless paint sprayers that are designed for light residential jobs and are considered entry-level airless paint sprayers, to the larger Airlessco LP600 ($2,069.00) used for large residential and light commercial work and the Airlessco SL1100 ($3,349.00) that can handle large commercial and industrial jobs with a rate of flow up to 1.1 gallons per minute. The gas-powered side of the Airlessco airless paint sprayers are more powerful and capable of handling larger projects than their electric-powered counterparts. They range in size from the Airlessco GS800 ($2,599.00) that can handle more gallons of paint per year than the largest electric-powered Airlessco paint sprayer to the Airlescco HSS11000 ($5192.00) that can spray mastics, epoxy, and even roof coatings.
The Airlessco SP200 electric powered paint sprayer is ideal for spraying up to 125 gallons per year on small to medium residential projects. The SP200 is one of Airlessco’s entry-level paint sprayers. With this sprayer you will be able to spray a variety of interior and exterior oil and water based coatings. The SP200 is ideal for the contractor who sprays only now and again, the homeowner who wants to paint their own house, or that one big job.
The Airlessco LP500 delivers the durability of the Airlessco paint pump with a reliable, pulsation-free electronic pressure control system. LP500 pumps are powered by a dependable, totally enclosed, fan cooled, DC motor. The heart of any airless sprayer is the pump, and the durability of the Airlessco “Slow-Stroker” paint pump, with its oversized hardened stainless steel piston and self-adjusting packings is legendary.
The The GS Series paint sprayers give you versatility when power is not available. These gas airless paint sprayers combine the proven durability of the “Slow Stroker” paint pump, with a dependable Honda gas engine. Ideal for new construction or those big jobs where mobility is a necessity.
- Knowledge of airless paint sprayers
- Yearly usage
- Project size
- Primary spray applications
- Ownership/rental considerations
Airlessco airless paint sprayers are ideal for consumers who are not familiar with the operations of other advanced airless paint sprayers. The rental varieties are easy to understand and easy to clean, but the larger, more complicated airless paint sprayers provide a wider range of applications professionals should be familiar with using. The Airlessco brand is now carried by Graco, which is the number one paint sprayer provider in the United States according to an independent study done by Frost & Sullivan. However, a number of reviewers as well as professional recommended purchasing a Graco brand over an Airlessco.
