Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Allen Campbell Hausfell Diaphragm Paint Sprayer
I have a 25+ year old CH diaphragm paint sprayer that I am about to replace because the wife thinks I need a new one. I have used this sprayer over the years to paint the house and numerous fences repeatedly. Lent it out to several friends who painted their houses, etc. I have replaced the inlet and outlet valves as needed at $50 a pop several times, but the basic unit still does what it is designed to do: pump paint. When faced with saving $100 to purchase a piston sprayer and to have to add a 50 foot hose at $50 to a cheaper piston sprayer, considering the durability of a CH diaphragm pump, the decision is a no brainer. Go with the Campbill Hausfell if you are planning for the long term.

25 gallons so far works great. Graco extensions leak on Campbell gun. I probably will put a graco gun on it other than that it works great

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paintingmadeeasy Worked perfectly
Painted three sides of the house in just 4 hours. The hardest part was moving the ladder so often because painting went so fast. You will spend far more time taping and masking then you will painting, but you will still come out ahead. get one of those 3 foot shields with the adjustable handle that Home Depot sells. That thing was worth it's weight in gold. With all the grooves in vertical siding I could not see myself painting every one of them with a brush. I followed the instructions to the word and the sprayer worked perfectly, never clogged or splattered and never skipped a beat. Do, thin the paint per the paint can instructions and there is no need to run it on full pressure, that is for double hose use. Clean up takes time but is not hard since it basically cleans itself when you run it with whatever cleaning solution you are using. All in all, worth every penny.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Acetylene This is an excellent unit
I bought this to paint a large number of rental properties, 43 in all, about four years ago. This sprayer just kept going and going. I was prepared to rebuild it before the project was over, but never needed to. It is still going with no rebuild. I have worn out several tips and replaced the hose once, but the unit and gun are still original. If you are careful about cleaning it after each use (as with any airless sprayer) it will provide years of service. The dual guns on 50' hoses make short work of any project.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Speedy Really great
I ordered this airless and had it shipped to my home, when it arrived it was on a pallet and wrapped in plastic really well so as to not be damaged.Upon opening the box, everything was there and in prefect condition. Very easy assembly and operation instructions, it wasn't long until I was painting. I practiced on my shed and then painted my house. No complaints at all, but I would advise to get the 311 spray tip for trim and doors, and maybe even the 20" tip extension for the hard to reach areas like the overhangs around the house. I did buy a GRACO 20" tip extension with guard, but the threads on the extension were too deep for the CH gun, when I screwed the extension onto the gun the nipple on the gun would not bottom out. So I marked the extension and took a reciprocating saw and slowly cut maybe a 1/4" off the threads. I cleaned up the burrs a little bit and now it's perfect. The GRACO tips from Home Depot will work in the CH guard that comes with the airless, and now I have a GRACO guard that comes with the extension. Really happy with my decision and it's a very good product.
