This is the first airless sprayer I've ever used, and I have been very impressed with it. I am using it to paint the exterior of my house and it is proving to be a huge time-saver. Tricky areas like the eaves under the roof would have taken forever with a brush. With this tool I'm done in minutes, and it looks great! Even though this is the entry level model in the Wagner line, it still can throw a lot of paint on in a hurry! I can only imagine what the big models will do. I am spraying a latex exterior house paint straight out of the can, no additives or dilution required.

The unit came with a 415 tip which was fine for large areas, but proved a little wide for the detail work. I bought a 313 to do the trim. Fortunately all of the brands (Wagner, SprayTech, Grayco, etc.) use the same tips which can be found at any big-box store (Home Depot, Lowes). You will also need to buy a swivel for the gun (about $20). The paint hose becomes very stiff under pressure, and without a swivel, the gun is very hard to maneuver.

Cleanup can be a chore. The capacity of the pickup tube and the hose is substantial and all of that paint has to be thoroughly flushed out. Then you have to clean the gun with a brush. None of this is really unexpected. It's a professional style tool for big jobs, and even with the cleanup, you're way ahead of the game.

As for the other reviewers who complained about a broken tip, I'm not sure how that could happen as it's made from steel. Maybe they were talking about the tip holder? Just buy a new one from HD for $15 and get on with it.

I primed and painted four new rooms and trim using flat acrylic paint. The 1st setup and clean up each took about 30 minutes but subsequent setups and cleanups took 10 minutes. The consistency is wonderful but a quick light pass with a roller is recommend to even out the paint dispersement and user error. It took me a hour to prime four rooms and two hours to paint two coats of flat paint. Overall, I estimated a 75% time savings. Highly recommended. An earlier reviewer had mentioned a broken tip, this package comes with an extra tip and is easy to replace (1 minute)

This paint sprayer saved a lot of time more importantly it allowed an ammateur painter do quality work on his new home. I had to read directions carefully and then look at the directions on manufacturers website in order to get accustomed to operating and cleaning sprayer. I originally bought it to stain my deck which it made the job from impossible to a matter of a few hours (stripping included). It was well worth the money and i wish i had bought one 20 years ago.

I just bought this from Orchard Supply for under $300. Used it today and sprayed over 5 gallons of exterior latex paint in just over one hour. This is a quality unit, close to a commercial big boy professional type, but at an affordable price for part time use. Sprayed great, some slobber on the tip guard, but that could have been from the lower quality paint I was using. Even though not recommended for use with the thick elastometric paint, it sprayed it well after thinning it a little. Cleanup was easier with the hose attachment than the professional units I have used in the past. As with any airless sprayer, cleanup is critical in preventing problems at the next use. Wagner tech support told me that warm water and detergent was acceptable for complete cleaning, especially for long term storage. You should clean the unit so it looks like new, never used. It only takes a short time to do a proper job, and you will minimize future problems. Invest in a plastic toothbrush and a small bottle brush to really get the corners of tip guard and inside filter housing (handle). I used a commercial ammonia based soap, pumped it through the unit for several minutes and it removed all trace of paint. Cycle again with clear warm water to remove any soap residue, drain lines and gun and be sure to suck a few ounces of the seperating oil into the inlet to keep parts from sticking. The new unit with the spring loaded inlet check ball actuation plunger is a great idea. This is a typical problem of airless units and usually means partial disassembly to unstick the check ball. Great idea. Overall this is a great unit at a good value. Clean it well after use, treat it well and it should last longer than you want to be painting.

I was looking for an alterative to brush or roller painting the exterior of my house and found this sprayer to be a great value. Many of the so-called Homeowner sprayers are cumbersome and require a TON of extra work to clean. This semi-pro/contractor style sprayer is only a little bit more expensive, but is built with quality. The instructions are clearly written, all of the necessary parts come in the box and it is easy to use. I had never used a paint sprayer before using this product and now my neighbors are asking me to paint their houses!

This machine lays down paint quickly and uniformly. The sprayer tip is reversible to clear clogs and is very comfortable to hold. The hose is a bit stiff, but very managable. The unit is quieter than I expected.

Cleaning is as simple as attaching a garden hose to the intake and turning on the water. The longest part of the cleaning process was taking the spray gun apart and clearing the filter (which wasn't hard to do).

My only complaint is that I had a tendency to develop accumulations of paint at the tip of the sprayer and had a few drips fall onto my siding. Very preventable if you remember to wipe the tip off every few gallons sprayed.

Overall, a great product at a great price.

I bought this to use as part of a home remodeling project. I had 10 doors that I needed to paint with satin paint and wasn't happy with the way they were turning out with the brush.

Set up was very easy. Instructions were clear and concise. I used the sprayer to paint 10 doors and multiple pieces of trim / baseboard / etc. It really is amazing how great it looks - the doors are spectacular. It was very easy to get consistently good results.

Only bad things:

1. It is very messy! There was lots of overspray all around behind the doors. No drips or anything like that, but you really need to cover things that you don't want paint on.

2. Painting the doors and trim took all of 20 minutes ... clean up took lots longer! However, it is not difficult, simply attach a hose to the pump, run water thru it (if you're using latex paint) until clear, and wash the rest of the parts. In any case, it was lots faster than painting all the parts with a brush.

I'm not sure if I would like to use this for interior painting (walls, etc) unless it was part of a complete remodel where the house was empty. Still, masking off all the stuff would take a long time ... maybe longer than cutting in with a brush and rolling (depending on your experience). I do think it is perfect for doors, trim, etc. and would work great for exterior painting (planning on using it for this in the spring).

Fabulous product!!!

I bought it to paint my shed and house. I primed it (the shed is 10x16) in 1/2 hour, did the clean up, which by the way was a breeze, and them painted the shed in another 1/2 an hour (I let the primer dry for about an hour and a half). Overall, actual painting and cleaning, it took me between 1.5 and 2.0 hours for the entire job, maybe a little longer!! There is NO WAY you will do that on non primed and painted wood with a roller.

Clean up was easy, much easier than the Paint Crew, from what I heard. Just follow the easy and clear instructions and it works. All you need is a garden hose and an empty container.

I do recommend getting the swivel for the Spray Gun and a 50' hose, the 25' that comes with the unit is good but the 50' gives you more mobility.

Spend the extra money and buy this unit over the Paint Crew, the ease of use and the clean up make it worth the extra cash. Gleempaint.com

It worked great right out of the box. The only issue I had was the fact I had to fight the stiff hose as I moved around. I solved that problem by buying a swivel to connect the hose and spray head. It would be nice if the company would include a swivel with their product. Cleanup was slow until I started using a bucket of hot water and dish soap.

My parents were looking for a power paint sprayer and did some research. My dad called me and said he wanted the Wagner Power 9140 because it was recommended to him by guy at the Home Depot. SO I checked Amazon they had the right price so I made the order. My dad enjoys researching these kind of things so I knew that no other brand would be appreciated.

The first time the sprayer was used it took some time to figure out how to assemble and use, but once you figure it out you are off to the races. A normal size bedroom will take about an hour to do a good job. As far as cleaning goes attach to a garden hose, could not be simpler.

The one con that I have is that it markets itself as entry level however in comparison it more expensive than other entry level modes form the competiors. Also, there are many add on attachments that can be bought which should be considered when factoring in your decision.

However it is worth the price when you compare to using a normal roller and the time you save. The Wagner saves time and makes painting fun.
