Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Raffie Burned out the original unit within hours of use.
Because I could not get any advice about the unit clogging on a Sunday, I burned out the first unit that I bought. Returned it to the store for exchange. Pushed thru with the second unit clogging as I went. Found out from Graco on Monday that the premium house paint that I used needed to be slightly thinned. Nothing about the problem in the instructions. Needed to thin the paint with 2 quarts of water per 5 Gallons of paint (10% thinner). Paint can be thinned by up to 17% without effecting the paint. Paint must be no thicker than .015. Instruction need to be much clearer about thickness of the paint and what to do about it. Basically the unit should not clog.

Airless spray rigs make every job faster. They just get more affordable. Very impressed with the performance and valuevalue.

I used this sprayer for the first time today and it couldn't have been any easier. My old sprayer that had a container for the paint just quit working. I had to clean everything each time that I had to add paint. Very time consuming.

I purchased the X5 to initially stain my fence. I first power washed my fence as it had not been cleaned since the fence was installed over 10 years ago. Then I used the sprayer with a 411 tip and Lowe's fence stain. I have over 200 feet of 5' tall wooden fencing enclosing a portion of the backyard. Spraying on the stain was easy enough and I only had to move the sprayer 4 times total to get both sides of the fence and both sides of the house. I used the project to get a handle on technique and even then, I used a brush to ensure consistent coverage at times. Once I was done, cleanup took about 45 minutes as I watched the video to as well to do it right the first time. Love the look of the fence and looking forward to painting parts of the exterior of the house and a couple of rooms inside. I figure I'll use this on the fence and to change wall colors every 2-3 years.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LDTaylor Did a great job first time out!
Spray pattern and coverage was excellant. I painted my garage in a couple of hours and sprayed 5 gallons. Set up instructions remain a bit cryptic, but once you get going, this unit is a delight.

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.
