We started the afternoon with the intent to paint my newly constructed workshop. We had rollers and brushes and quickly realized things weren't going so well. The exterior of the shop is 4x8 Smartside panel siding. It's pre-primed and has deep grooves to simulate planking. My wife looked at me and said go get a sprayer! Don't have to be told twice!
We were painting with Behr Premium Ultra Exterior satin paint. We had 5gal bucket mixed at HD earlier. The paint is thick too! It made me hesitant to use a sprayer. But this thing drew up the paint like it was nothing. This thing is an absolute dream to paint with. Honest to goodness I'll never use anything else when it comes to painting exteriors or large rooms. We painted my little work shop (16x25) and had everything cleaned up and put away in 3.5hrs. No joke I painted the entire side of the building in 15min.
Clean up wasn't that bad. The X5 comes with a hose fitting on the end of the paint hose. Just unscrew it and attach a garden hose. Put the machine in prime and let it wash itself out. Again, couldn't be any easier. The price is a little steep IMHO. But honestly when you factor in just how quickly and easily you can paint an entire house, garage, workshop, large room. It is a no brainer to have around.

Absolutely outstanding product. Watched the DVD and commenced painting kitchen cabinets. Once you get the spray pattern right, the results are flawless. Clean up is simple and quick. Could not be happier with this painter.

I bought this to paint the outside of house and all concrete block fencing. I found it easy to operate. The pump motor was very effective. The spray pattern was wide and the time to paint went fast. The only reason for a GOOD rating was there is no swivel for the hand held sprayer. Wondering if there is a universal one that would fit Graco sprayer.

I bought this sprayer to complete an interior shop project. I sprayed approx. 15 gallons of paint over 2 days. The sprayer is well designed and durable, it applied paint right out of the bucket in a smooth, consistent pattern with little overspray.
My only downgrade is due to instability of the setup on the ground. I wish it had a capability to more firmly attach to the bucket in order to assure it would not dislodge when you are up on a ladder and near the limit of the spray hose.
I have used it other times since then with good results

Very nice sprayer, well worth the money. This little sprayer lays the paint on flat and uniformed. I had to learn to never stop moving my arm as long as the trigger is depressed, it will make a run for you. The video that comes with this sprayer seems hard to follow but the actual use of the gun is much easier if you just follow the quick guide included in the box. I do think you should watch the video just to get familiar with all the parts and where they are located but the quick guide is much easier to use in the field.

I bought the Graco-X5 sprayer to spray my pool fence and decks. I had a sprayer, that was a different brand that was a hit and miss sprayer. Meaning it would work sometimes but would stop working at crucial times during the spraying. (UNREALIBLE)
Using the GracoX5 I sprayed 25 gallons of stain, in one day and never had a problem or malfunction. Easy cleanup, however cleanup takes a little time to do properly.

I purchased this for use as a home owner, not a professional painter. Has worked as described and without problems. I have no prior experience with this type of spraying equipment, I have always used air sprayers. If you follow the directions, set-up and use is pretty straight forward. Has worked great for what I have used it for, witch includes painting my outdoor storage shed.
