For every 30 secconds of painting I spent 5 minutes cleaning the piston.

I found that this sprayer works good if you read and follow the directions in the owner's manual.

I thinned and thinned and all it did was shoot blobs & gobs (or nothing at all).

I felt the need to post a review about the Wagner Power Painter, because I've read many poor reviews about it and had many of the same frustrations with the product, initially. The fact is that this product is not for every project, but it is a huge time saver for projects that have a large coverage area (houses, decks, fences, large rooms, ceilings).

First off, you cannot just pour paint into the thing and start painting. Take it apart, and make sure everything is properly lubricated with the provided oil. Next, if you're using latex-based paint, THIN the paint using FLOETROL (this is a MUST). Using Floetrol helps the issue that some people have with the unit seizing. Refer to the back of the Floetrol bottle for "airless sprayers" to know how much to put in the paint. I would not recommend thinning the paint with water, or the unit may gum up. Cover/tape adjacent surfaces well, as the excess spray can reach several feet away, and the wind doesn't help!

Get a large piece of cardboard or scrap wood and play with the pressure settings until you find a good coverage pattern. This took me less than 5 minutes. After that, you just need to be confident with using a paint sprayer, which will come with practice.

The unit will start to spit when the bottle is getting low. I habitually refill after one pass of a 10' X 10' area, just to avoid this. Keep a brush or small roller handy to clean up spots where this might occur. Clean up time should be less than 20 minutes. I clean brushes and rollers longer than that, usually.

I was ready to return this product after using it once. It spat and dripped and seized up. After doing some reading, I realized I just wasn't using it properly. If you follow the steps above, you should have very good results. This is a really great product, once you get used to it.

I've used this one, and my older Wagner Power Painter, with latex paints and latex solid stains for several years now with no problems at all.

1. I lubricated with a brief stream (not a few drops)of household oil before and after cleaning with EVERY use.

2. Use the viscosity stick gauge as per the directions to thin latex before attempting to spray it. Never, ever, try spraying unthinned latex. In that case you're just begging for piston seizure! I always thin latex with water-it's cheap and the only drawback is that doing that does dilute your latex (this is stated in the manual), and you might need to spray a second coat-big deal.

3. When I've finished painting, I clean with only water (remember, I've only used this with latex so far), and then a second brief stream of oil.

I bought my first Wagner Power Painter in 1993, and it's still working great!

PRO's:
- FAST! Gets the job done in a flash!
- Relatively easy to clean-up
- Controllable spray settings
- Simple to use

CON's:
- Doesn't suck up paint from bottom of jar
- Difficult to pour paint into jar
- Doesn't work very well on the small item settings
- Overspray

This thing is AWSOME for large difficult paint projects. For example, painting shutters, fences, siding, etc. It is probably not nearly as useful for small projects because it sprays a lot of paint and clean-up time may be too great. However, for large projects, it puts on a good amount of paint very quickly and clean-up isn't a huge deal because of how much time you've just saved.

Clean-up probably takes about 20 mintues and is not that hard (I normally spend about 10-15 cleaning a brush).

Today, I painted 26 vinyl window shutters with this Wagner. The tough part was getting them down and washing all of them first. I setup a huge plastic tarp on my driveway to dry the shutters and another tarp to paint on. This Wagner needs to be used mostly upright when using the attached canister, so I needed to put the shutters upright. I simply nailed two finish nails onto a saw horse. Then each shutter simply popped onto the saw horse using the two nails through the middle peg holes in the shutter. Part of the trick to painting shutters, by the way, is to paint them up-side-down so you don't miss any spots where people can see them. That is, when shutters are on the house, people will look UP at them, so they see the underside and not the top. Turning the shutter up-side-down allows you to get good coverage on the bottom.

Each shutter took only about 45 seconds to paint! No joke!

After reading some of the reviews for this product, I was somewhat skeptical that this product would work. Well, it actually did work and saved me an enormous amount of time on a large paint project. Here's the deal: The paint went on fine but in places it was uneven or too thick. Occassionally, it splattered. But, for these problems, I just rolled over them with a paint roller I had on hand and kept on trucking. The most important thing was to make sure the paint was even and to ensure that I had reduced the excess. The paint job looks great and I've gotten a lot of complements. I feel relatively certain that, by using this technique, I cut the time it took for my job by a factor of four. To me, that makes it well worth the $$. The large paint container on this model makes it much faster than the others. Cheers!
