Whenever a painting job is needed to be done, the Graco airless paint sprayer is easily the clear leader in the industry that stands apart from the rest. The first portable Graco paint sprayer was manufactured in 1958 and the company has been continually developing more efficient designs to meet the demands of homeowners and professional contractors alike.
Graco has been a leader in the industry since its inception in 1928 and is still a dominating force in the work arena. Their world class service and reputation exceed their competition by such a large margin that they have been rated number one by pros for overall spray brands according to the independent studies done by Frost & Sullivan two years in a row. In fact, they surpassed their toughest competition by seven to one.
Graco paint guns are designed to be disassembled quickly and without the use of complicated tools to keep contractors on the move. The sprayer tips are interchangeable for changing applications and can be reversed with a simple turn for clearing any out any debris without having to remove it. The sprayers are even equipped with an auto shutoff feature that prevents the motor from burning up when paint runs out, allowing the user to focus on what’s important – applying the paint. The company stands behind the quality of the Graco paint sprayers enough to include a top-notch warranty on several models that will replace the entire motor or the drive-train over the course of its lifetime, if it should fail with normal usage. Certain models of airless sprayers even include a policy that authorizes contractors to return a sprayer within 30 days and use it toward the purchase of an upgraded sprayer. They expect their products to last longer than the consumer’s needs and provide multiple contingencies if they don’t. Any contractor or homeowner can feel confident in buying a Graco paint sprayer when the homeowners and the professionals that use them, have overwhelmingly given positive reviews, time and again.
Range of Choices
The Graco airless paint sprayers range from a small economical Graco TrueCoat paint sprayers ($199.00) and the Graco X7 airless paint sprayer ($499.00) that are ideal for homeowners to the extreme-duty sprayers like the 2.2 hp IronMan 300E ($5399.00) that can spray up to 1.2 gallons per minute and is designed to be used on jobs where abuse is expected. Most contractors fall somewhere in between. For most commercial and residential work, and typical applications, one of the Ultra Max II models will meet all the requirements for the job. Graco’s new TrueCoat paint sprayers operate with batteries, don’t require any paint to be thinned, and are ideal for fine spray finishes, such as cabinetry and trimwork. Although, they can also be used for walls and ceilings and have a comparable professional finish that Graco is known for. The primary consideration is the amount of paint that can be used before more paint has to be resupplied. The Ultra Max models operate with 5-gallon buckets of paint versus the hand-held versions that won’t provide the same amount of coverage. The other primary factor is the speed and thickness of the coverage desired with the first pass. The smaller models use smaller tips and produce finer sprays. The larger models are also capable of fine sprays as well, but can are capable of spraying thicker viscosity that certain materials may have. Here are a few things to consider when purchasing a paint sprayer.
