Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sukhoi31M3 This is a must have if you do a lot of painting
This is my second Graco painter, the first being a Magnum Pro X7. The Pro X7 is a fine paint spraying rig but I needed something for the smaller projects. I decided to go with the true coat pro 2 over the lesser models because it offers more pressure settings and is supposed to be more durable.
My first project was spraying a chest of drawers. I scuffed it up and shot it with some very thick 2 year old latex exterior paint I had laying around. Using that paint, I had to clear the tip several times to get through the the project. I attribute that to the paint. Once I got a grip on what pressure setting to use ( 9 or max) the sprayer worked fine. There is a learning process, but it's easy, it just takes time.
My second job for the TrueCoat Pro2 was the trim on a shed I had built. I did all the walls with my bigger rig and left the trim (over hangs and fascia boards ) for the smaller sprayer. I used Pittsburg sun blocker exterior latex paint and it is really thick. It pours out in glops and resembles pudding. I had my doubts about the Pro2 being able to handle it but was pleasantly surprised when it shot the paint with ease, accuracy and nice even flow. I used a 315 tip and had the tool set to 9 ( max ) and didn't have one incident of clogging.
Clean up is a breeze mostly because it's a small tool (compared to my large rig with 3 screens and a 50 foot hose). I can see lots of opportunity for both these grace sprayers; with the two of them I'm covered for everything.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DonnyH Great for small jobs!
We do remodel and restoration projects and have a couple of airless and HVLP sprayers. We have had this gun for over a year and love it. It is great for small projects, accent walls and trim work. It is easy to clean and fast to set up. We have sprayed interior and exterior water based primers and paints through it using different tips with no problems. The 2 painting contractors we use also use this gun. I would definitely recommend it.

This is a great machine and a very professional spray gun. I have used this big jobs and small jobs and it always works great. It should come with the 311 tip. The 515 tip is comes with is almost too much for it. Sure, if you are painting a big wall, the 515 tip is fine, but you are probably going to use the machine for painting trim, front doors, or cabinet interiors where the 515 is too much.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kurt good for smaller jobs where I don't need my full size airless
took a few minutes to get use to it. It'll lay down a lot of paint quickly. Need to order other tips for smaller jobs, HD should carry other tips but doesn't. Clean up is fairly quick and 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Len Poor Tip Selection
Does not come with tip for trim work! Only comes with a 10" tip, which is great for painting a shed, but you will use way too much paint trying to paint railings etc. Bought specifically to use as trim sprayer for house. When I looked at store for tip, found that they were only available online, with only two narrow tips to choose from, and only one narrow tip appropriate for latex paints. (According to Graco) Larger sprayer with better tip selection has much better control for trim. A sprayer that is billed as great for small projects should come with appropriate tip size. Works well enough, however for small jobs.
