IF, like my husband, you want to get a lot of paint on a lot of walls quickly, so you can mark that task off of your list, this will become an indispensable weapon in your "get-it-done" arsenal, and it probably won't be as huge a concern for you that you get every single last molecule of paint out of the machine. (My husband has gone through two of these in older models)
IF, like me, you are looking for a perfect finish coat, and you are, like me, annoyingly meticulous about your tidiness, you will find yourself moving the roller slowly enough to prevent splattering and to perfect the coverage, leaving you holding the weight of the roller, hose and a quart of paint (over your head if you are doing a ceiling) for a long, exhausting time.
HAVING SAID THAT, our rooms are big, and I will use it over and over again for my new-construction prime coat in whole rooms. Even a thick, good quality roller has me dipping about every four square feet, with the heaviness of our interior wall texture. I will also use it when painting a lot of wall area a single color. I am just not tough enough to use it for ceilings.
Being 5'3", I really appreciate the LONG HOSE. It eliminates any need for a battery-powered unit, just to deal with changing batteries. Park the thing by the closest outlet and go.
EXTENSION TUBE: It greatly enhances my puny wingspan, so I don't have to reposition the ladder and everything else nearly so often.
EDGER: I was disappointed in the surface area of the edger.Read more ›
HOWEVER, I wouldn't break it out unless I had a full room to do. Very easy to keep just the right saturation on the roller so painting goes super fast, but cleanup is a good 30-45 minute operation. Put the roller in a plastic bag (wrapped tightly) between coats so it doesn't dry out and you can do your second coat 4 hours later with no cleaning involved.
The technique I used to keep the roller at the right saturation was to "Pulse" the button. Press the button for a second every every 4 or 5 seconds, if it starts to get too wet you wait longer between pulses, if it starts to get too dry you shorten the time between pulses.
I had a broken part on my power roller which didn't affect the function - Wagner sent me a replacement, no questions asked (Use email though, their phone support is lame)

A few weeks later I went to do an inside paint job. Stuck a brand new gallon of paint in and as soon as it started pumping paint up the hose to the attachments "SNAP!" then freewheeling motor, same as the first one. This time I took it all apart after flushing water through it. There was a tiny chunk of hardened paint that killed it. The way this thing pumps is using rollers against the plastic tubing to push the paint through. ANY obstruction will stop the rollers. There's plastic gearing, of course, and the real kicker is the main drive rod for the "pump" is a 1/4" plastic rod. This is the weak point that broke. Imagine using a plastic toy wrench to tighten bolts with, that's what this basically amounts to.
Unless you're gonna buy this to use on one big job and be done with it I wouldn't ever suggest using this thing. If you already have one that hasn't broke yet, make sure you run TONS of water through it while it's running to clean it. This should flush any paint out of the pump itself. That, and filter all your paint to get and globs out. I'm trying to epoxy the "pump" back together on mine to see if I can get a little more use out of it. For the time it saved me on the stucco I got my money's worth, but it's still very cheaply made.
Anyway, having read some of the reviews here, I had mixed feelings about this machine, but then the experience with the roller plus over the years has given me some idea of what to expect of wagner quality.
Our current project is a 1st floor, studs out remodel. We got the priming and kitchen ceiling color done before the roller plus started acting up, so we have just over 1000sq ft to paint. Our first project with this painter is a bathroom ceiling just over 100 sq ft. I can say it worked just as well as the old system. I can't imagine the problems others are having. Perhaps they are different models, but mine has a reverse switch and a variable speed. I cranked up the speed to 9 to start with, turned it on, and waited for the paint to start coming through the roller, just like I did with the old one. Once I saw the paint coming through, I started rolling it around a small area until the cover became saturated, and turned it off. I hope a couple of the other reviewers realize it CAN be turned off, and probably should be while you cover a small area at a time. Just like a manual roller, get the roller wetted, spread the paint around in a M or W shape (I do this while it's running), turn it off and spread the paint around a area of 3 or 4 feet square. You don't need to keep it running while you roll. You also don't need to hold down the button, although there is an option to press and hold the button partway to get it to pump. I just push it once to get it pumping, then again to stop. BTW, I did NOT use the splatter shield.Read more ›
