When I took this Tool Force sprayer out of its box I could see and feel it was much, much nicer that the price I paid for it. There isn't anything cheap looking about the sprayer. The head, needle and the body emulates the quality of my guns ten times the price.
I've paid more for just a needle kit for other sprayers.
I started off spraying Latex paint. I knew I had to thin it, and it wouldn't deliver the volume equal to the Airless. But, after tinkering with the air/volume/fan adjustments it's performance actually amazed me. It is fantastic on small projects. It easily opens up on big areas and tones down on intricate areas. Loose the Air Regulator and install a light whip hose and this gun gets everywhere, at all angles. The material in the cup weighs almost as much as the whole gun. It still worked good with a small compressor, but it performs best with a big compressor with more air volume.
I tried using a few of those 'electric' guns. Besides being inefficient, they are Very noisy and heavy.
After a couple hours use, I cleaned almost the whole Sprayer with just water, then a little lacquer thinner to make it look like new again. My airless sprayers takes 2 hours to disassemble the pump, filter, hose and gun, and a gallon of lacquer thinner.
So, I'm now considering purchasing a Nice HLVP. But this one has such an even delivery of material, a perfect conical spray pattern and fantastic control with all the available adjustments..... I'll have to see what other models they have. Maybe another cool color.
Read all the reviews here and ran into some of the same issues other reviewers had. The wrench bent while trying to remove the 1.4mm nozzle, got around that with a vise grips and a bit of cloth to protect the unit. The spring will fly out when removing the installed needle, watch for it! Or go very slow. All the machined threaded parts seem to be well done and smooth with the exception of the connector to the gun from the air regulator, it's going to leak a bit no matter what. As a matter of fact I doubt the regulator as a whole will last very long. Assembled, with gun, paint container, regulator and water filter it's just shy of 2 feet long, a swivel connector or two makes using it inside things or on small things a whole lot easier.
How does it paint? Simply, it's great, I painted some steel mesh lawn furniture with rust-oleum enamel with the 2.0 tip thinned maybe 2% and it put down a smooth even coat with no drips. The spray pattern adjuster was marginally effective but it did help. On some wooden doors it worked just as well with exterior latex paint, also thinned just slightly. I didn't use the 1.4mm tip as I'm not spraying anything that thin.
Clean up was straight forward, run some thinner or acetone (depending on what paint used) through the gun, disassemble (remember the vise grip trick and that flying spring), use the provided brush and in about 5 minutes you're done.
Except for the wrench issues and cheap leaking regulator, I'd have given it 5 stars.
I have been using the gun mostly to spray latex paint. It's been hooked up to a 5 gallon porter cable compressor.
I've found that if I thin the latex about 15%, it sprays on very well and if I'm careful not to rush, there are no drips or runs. I've sprayed two exterior fiberglass doors, as well as a few hundred feet of baseboard trim.
The only draw-back is that it's pretty slow going. It takes about 10 minutes to do a VERY thin coat on a door. I've found that for white paint I can get away with 3-4 coats, but with a tinted paint it's more like 5-6. At 10 minutes a piece, plus time in between to tack up, plus two sides, it's a several hour process to paint a door.
Trim on the other hand goes pretty quickly, so that's pretty much what I use it for.
I can certainly reiterate that you need to clean it VERY WELL each time you use it. If you do, it seems like it'll last a long time at it's designed performance level.
