Easy set-up
Two-Stage Turbine for Painting and Staining Projects
With the Control Spray Max, you can spray a variety of different paints, primers, lacquers, and stains. Use it to prime and paint cabinets, door trim, and decks, or to stain furniture, woodworking projects, and more.

The sprayer's powerful two-stage turbine easily handles thick material like interior latex paint, while variable air pressure control (1.50 to 2.63 psi) reduces overspray of thin materials like lacquers and stains. Variable flow control allows you to transition from working with a large spray surface to more detail-oriented projects, like painting trim or windowpanes.

Adjustable Spray Patterns Accommodate Different Materials
Lightweight yet powerful, this handy tool sets up in just minutes. It features a viscosity cup that lets you measure the density of the material you're using and adjust the spray pattern as needed. The spray nozzle requires only a simple turning of the ears on the air cap to allow for a round, horizontal, or vertical pattern, depending on your application.

Achieves Smooth, Even Finish
Two large air filters prevent dust from marring the finish, so the result is smooth and even. And with the 20-foot air hose, it's easy to keep the spray gun positioned squarely towards your surface.

The Control Spray Max includes a contractor-grade, 1-quart metal cup, as well as a 1-1/2 quart plastic cup for larger volume jobs like painting or staining decks and fences.

Product Description

When it comes to finishing wood furniture, the Wagner Control Paint Sprayer does it well and fast.

The Wagner Control Spray uses HVLP (High Volume Low Pressure) air power technology to spray thin materials such as stains, sealers, urethanes, varnishes, and lacquers. It features an outdoor rated air turbine for a continuous flow of material and air producing a professional fine finish whether staining your deck or refinishing your lawn furniture.

A three position air cap adjusts the spray pattern for either vertical fan, horizontal fan, or round pattern shapes to most effectively get the job done quickly and with the best even coverage. Material flow is easily controlled with the variable trigger allowing the user to spray 1/2 inch wide to 6 inch wide patterns. Sets up in less than 5 minutes and cleans up in less than 10 minutes.

I had purchased another Wagner sprayer to use refinishing my kitchen cabinets. Unfortunately, I bought the wrong model. After doing some cabinet doors and not being satisfied, I called Wagner technical support.

I described what I was attempting to do and the lady told me that I needed the Max HLVP unit.

I used it yesterday for the two base coats and then this morning for the top coat of polyurethane. I couldn't be happier with the results!

The unit is light and has plenty of power.
I was spraying heavy interior latex and then satin polyurethane.
It takes some playing to understand the best settings on power and flow. But, once you get those dialed in and are consistent in your spray angles and distance, the unit will give you professional results.

It is very easy to clean and comes with two cups for small and larger jobs.

I plan to use this to finish the balance of the kitchen cabinets and then on multiple other interior and exterior jobs.

Great product for the money, but only for certain jobs! I would recommend it for any outside work, but would not recommend it for painting interior walls, as the effort required to minimize overspray and obtain the perfect dilution/spray velocity outweighs any gains in speed or ease of use.

This Wagner has the most hits of any sprayer on the internet, and you can find many video blogs reviewing the product. However, what is lacking of sprayers in general are first-hand accounts of actual end users (especially first-time users). This Wagner is my first paint sprayer. Last year I repainted the entire inside of my house; walls, trim, doors, shelves and all in preparation to move out and get a new house. All of that work was done with traditional rollers and brushes. When we purchased our new house I was desparate to find some way to speed up the process. I researched many sprayers and read many reviews. I found many positive reviews for sprayers in the $800+ range, but was unwilling to commit to that kind of purchase having never used a sprayer. With the Wagner in the $100 range I figured even if it was a bust it was worth the effort.

The first two times I used the sprayer was to paint the walls in the dining room and kitchen area, as these were the smallest wall surface areas in the house, and had flooring that was soon to be replaced, so messes were of little concern. The sprayer is very easy to use -- simply dump paint in the hopper, twist-n-lock the spayer assembly together, turn on the power, and push the trigger.

Having not ever used a sprayer before, my wife and I spent a great deal of time blue-taping and laying down dropcloths.

This is just a quick review documenting my first (short) experience with this sprayer.

I just bought and tried this sprayer and so you understand, I know very little about these. The reason I bought this particular sprayer was cost and I figured that the outboard turbine would be more powerful that the ones with the turbine built on the handle.

I have previously owned an airless sprayer and it was useless except for jobs where quality wasn't important. The previous sprayer would constantly spit and I had no control over the spray pattern. I wasted a lot of paint painting a fence with it. Moving on...

I am getting ready to paint some rooms in my house and figured that I would try this sprayer to get an idea of how to use it before I got serious with it. I was using latex paint straight out of the can with no thinning... I was curious about how that would work. There are only three adjustments on this gun... air flow, paint feed, and spray pattern. I set the air flow at its lowest setting, pulled the trigger, and nothing came out. I kept increasing the air flow until I got a spray, which was (for the material I was using) near maximum output. Paint delivery was smooth and consistent, although the amount of paint coming out was less than ideal if you were painting a wall. I was only painting a door and frame. I tried the different spray patterns and they all worked as expected. Since there were no "stops" I was curious about where to turn the spray head to get the desired pattern. As it turned out, it was easy. You could "hear" and "feel" the air change as you turned the nozzle. The spray patterns were fairly tight and over spray was minimal. After I was done, clean up was a breeze compared to cleaning brushes and paint trays.

Hello. I purchased the Wagner 518080 to paint 12 doors that I had purchased to remodel my house. I had replaced the door moldings and fitted new panel doors. After doing this I then hand painted the new moldings and door jambs. But the thought of hand painting 12 panel doors made me think I really needed to spray them. Quite frankly, I don't know why I thought that way since my previous experiences with spray outfits had always led to disaster. But, I was intrigued by all the positive feedback on this sprayer so I decided to take the plunge. In the grand scheme of things, it was only $99 so not much of a plunge.

I spent an inordinate amount of time researching how to spray latex. I planned to spray the doors with a white gloss Latex enamal, the same paint I had used on the moldings and door jambs. I got a ton a conflicting information with many bloggers saying, "Don't even try it with a cheap sprayer." Anyway, long story short, I happened upon a video from the manufacturer of a rather expensive three stage HVLP unit that explained how to spray latex using their system. They explained that you mix 4 parts paint to 1 part Floetrol to 2 parts of a water borne polyurethane. They suggested using either Home Depot's water based clear Profinisher or Minwax Polycrytic. They also explained that you should filter the mixture before spraying.

Now armed with "how" along a $99 spray outfit I began my next adventure. I followed the video's directions to a tee on how to prepare the paint. One note, the polyurethanes and Polycrytic come in gloss, semi-gloss and flat. Make sure you match against the type of paint you are using.

With everything ready to go I spent all of two minutes adjusting my sprayer while spraying on some cardboard.
