Graco's Truecoat Pro II Airless Corded Sprayer works as well for the novice painter as it does for the person with numerous jobs under their belt.
When you're looking for an airless sprayer that can be repaired easily, has numerous tips available, and can spray at sharp angles, the Truecoat II Pro can't be beat.
I own another airless sprayer, and while it's a quality machine, you can definitely feel the difference between the two tools from the get go. You get what you pay for with the Graco.
WHAT'S IN THE BOX? You'll get everything you need to start painting with this kit, just buy some paint and get to work in no time.
A) Hard plastic carrying case. Fits everything you need and holds it secure.
B) Attractive metallic blue sprayer with 15 foot power cord.
C) User Guide DVD and owners manual and registration packet
D) 32oz Paint cup and lid
E) Pump Protector fluid bottle
F) Five disposable paint cup liners
Simply clean out the pump protector that's in the gun from the factory per the directions and you're ready to start spraying.
Paint prep is easy, all you'll want to do is filter it to remove any big chunks of pigment and pour it right into the cup. No thinning needed!
Depending on the material you're spraying follow the directions provided by Graco as to the pressure number to set the gun to and you can't go wrong. The pressure dial is easy to turn, has large marked numbers and a good sized knob so you can use it with a paint suit and gloves on.
The paint intake hose is very flexible and has a large weight on it, allowing you to spray above your head or below your waist without losing suction in the paint cup. Priming the gun and getting it to start spraying is easy with the pressure let-off lever.
My favorite feature is the easy clean-out paint tip. If you do happen to get a clog for some reason, just flip the lever on the tip around, hit the trigger and it expels the clog instantly. You don't have to tear the gun apart to clean clogs. Wonderful!
Storage is made easier with the pump protector fluid. Clean the gun and tip using the appropriate cleaner for your paint type. Water for latex, or mineral spirits for oil based paints. When done, use the pump protector fluid as directed and you're gun will stay clog free and ready to go next time you want to paint.
Tips, parts, extra pump fluid and accessories are available from Home Depot online and in many stores.
You can depend on this sprayer to deliver a quality coat with any material you want to spray. I sprayed a cinder block wall and even on that rough surface I got a clean and drip free coat on each brick. I'm very happy with this sprayer. And best of all, you don't have to thin the paint first (Yes, I said that twice).
Don't be intimidated by spray jobs any longer, this Graco gun makes it easy.

What can I say. This is a super convenient airless paint sprayer making home projects that much easier to complete. This sprayer could not be easier to clean, just add your cleaning medium and reverse the nozzle.
The unit is a little heavy but manageable. The cord length is not long enough where you will not need an extension cord but long enough to move the connection far enough away from the gun so it will not interfere on a ladder or something like that.
The case is nicely made and it properly supports the gun. Check out youtube which has good videos of the gun in action.

Have only used this sprayer twice and it has performed much better than I expected. I already own one of another mfg which did well on painting cabinets. This time I needed to spray a sealer on a block wall and the other just would not put out enough paint.
Not the case with the Trurcoat. This sprayer really performes. Yes it costs more than the others but you can get three times the work done in the same time.

If you hire a painter, then 99% of the time they are going to turn up with a Graco brand paint sprayer. This is the brand the professional use and trust, and now its available in a form factor and price point for the home user to use.
Anyone who has used a handheld sprayer before might be excused for thinking this is just another cheap plastic sprayer, but far from it. This is metal construction, whilst still be light weight, and uses professional quality spray nozzles. It has a very flashy metallic blue finish.
My neighbor is a painting contractor and uses one of these every day (he use the battery model). He has estimated he has run 50 gallons of paint through his without a problem. I've only run 2 quarts, but I'm happy to know it will be ready to use the next time I have a paint job.
A few tips. Follow the manufacturers advice and clean the sprayer thoroughly after use. Also, they provide disposable paint can liners, but these can be hard on the pump, so skip them and just clean the paint tub thoroughly after each use. Also, use the provided 'Pump Armor' after use and before storage, it protects the airless paint sprayer pump while in storage, as it helps protect your pump against freezing and corrosion when not in use.

The Graco Truecoat Pro II is a very high quality paint sprayer. I've owned similar, cheaper sprayers in the past and they just never last and the maintenance on them is a pain.
When I received the Graco sprayer the first thing that I noticed was the high quality storage case and that's one of my favorite parts. Too often do tools get left on shelves to collect dust, but not with the Graco Sprayer. You get a high quality storage case that fits everything very securely.
Whats included in thee case:
-Graco Truecoat Pro II Paint Sprayer
-Owners Manuals and DVD guides
-5 Disposable paint cup liners
-32oz. Paint cup
-Pump protector fluid
The Sprayer includes a 15 ft. power cord that gives you plenty of reach where you need it. This sprayer was designed for smaller 1-2 gallon paint jobs but a quick paint refill will allow you to use this for larger jobs with little downtime. The 32 oz. cup does not require that you thin the paint before usage which is very satisfying, but it is always a good measure to make sure that there are no large clumps in your paint before you begin spraying. The included cup liners are a great idea to help minimize cleanup, you are able to just toss out the liner after you are done instead of having to thoroughly wash the cup job after job. Additional liners can be purchased at your local home depot store. One of my favorite features of this sprayer is its ability to spray at nearly any angle due to the flexible paint tube feed line with a waited tip. This allows the tube that draws the paint to fall with the paint where ever it goes, therefore minimizing frustration and refills.
I had a rather small job of painting a new Shed in a friends backyard and I knew that this was the best time to test the durability and strengths of the Graco Sprayer. I was unsure at first of which pressure setting to set the sprayer too so I referenced the user manual and quickly figured out the best setting for the Job and type of paint I was using. The entire job took less than an hour to complete and the coating was just incredible solid. I've never seen coverage like this from a sprayer in just one go. I generally have to make one or two passes over some spots to ensure proper coverage but I did not have to do that at all with this sprayer.
My least favorite part about any job is the cleanup, especially with paint because of how finicky it can be to get rid of. The included protector fluid is a must have tool that will keep your sprayer running like new for every job. It is important to follow the user manual when it comes to cleaning your sprayer. Different paints require you to clean your sprayer using different solutions and the manual will make for a simpler clean up job.
I am very satisfied with this sprayer, more so than I have been with other airless models. This is a quality dependable sprayer that will last a long time if cared for properly.

This machine works awesome, I don't have to get my big sprayer for small projects, I painted some cabinets and doors, and worked just like my bigger graco sprayer, with the same ending results...
quick and easy to clean, I loved it, now I carry this sprayer with me behind my pick up seat

I've used other airless painters and they perform okay, but are cheaply made, noisy and vibrate too much. So I was excited to try out this Graco Truecoat Pro II painter.
First impression: It comes in a very well made carrying case - a nice touch. The unit is a bit heavy, but is well balanced. The blue metallic finish is top notch and the switches and buttons feel durable. The cord is nice and long also.
Prep work: There is a little prep work to use the unit. First, you flip the lever and let any left over blue preserver fluid out. Then run water to clear the line. They give you these great paint cup liners, so clean up is easy - I highly recommend using them!
Use: Wow! Great coverage, consistent and puts out a great finish. No buzzing or vibrating. I had to adjust the sprayer to a lower level, even though I had some pretty thick paint. The sprayer has a flexible pickup tube, so you can turn the gun at an angle and it doesn't go dry. I can't believe how nice the finish is! I didn't do a large area, so I don't know how far you can go on a cup of paint.
Clean up: The clean up is pretty easy. The cup liner is great and allowed me to simply use a twist tie to save the paint. They give you a cover for the cup, so you may be able to store the paint in there, but I didn't. I try not to put old paint back in the can, since I don't know if there is any contamination from the gun. The rest of the parts are removable. I did something different to clean it. I got a wide bowl of warm soapy water and put the paint pickup tube in it. Then I ran the unit until it sprayed clear. This is how I clean my other guns. I then took the pick up tube off and washed it. I removed the nozzle and washed it (it was pretty clean when I took it off). I cleaned the underside of the cup with warm soapy water. Then I ran some of the preserver through the gun. Took all of 15 minutes to clean and the gun looks like new again.
If you're looking for a top quality airless paint gun and you want an exceptional finish, this is your tool! I am extremely happy with it.

Over the years, I’ve gone through a number of Wagner electric paint sprayers and currently own a Graco TrueCoat Plus II, which has performed beautifully the few times I’ve used it. I was curious to see how the more expensive TrueCoat Pro II stacked up against the TruCoat Plus II, so I’m quite pleased to have been given the opportunity to render this review. In a side-by-side comparison, aside from the metallic blue paint finish which distinguishes the Pro from the Plus model dressed in Graco's trademark flat medium blue, externally there isn’t much, if any, discernible difference between the two sprayers. The controls and nozzles look and operate the same. Both sprayers are ideal for large and small projects, are simple and easy to setup, operate and clean, and will accept latex paint straight out of the can without thinning. According to Graco, the difference between the TrueCoat II, TrueCoat Plus II and the TrueCoat Pro II paint sprayers is the amount of paint that can be run through the sprayer before it requires repair service. While the Pro is capable of spraying 400 quarts of material before requiring service, the TrueCoat and TrueCoat Plus II spray 100 and 200 quarts, respectively, suggesting that the internals and tolerances of the Pro are better than the TrueCoat II and TrueCoat Plus II models . The Pro also includes a tool and storage case that isn’t included with the other sprayers, as well as a 15-foot electrical cord, which in some cases, such as painting a small bedroom, eliminates the need for an extension cord. Cleanup is easy, especially if you insert a liner in the paint cup prior to use. 5 plastic liners are included with the sprayer. After you exhaust these, they are available in a 10-pack from Home Depot for a few dollars. In order to decrease cleaning time, I highly recommend using a cup liner every time you paint. While I think you can’t go wrong with any of the airless paint sprayers offered by Graco, the TrueCoat Pro II is hands down the finest electric hand-held paint sprayer I have ever owned and I highly recommend it.
