Bought this for a whole house rehab that I am doing. Its great. It uses a lot more paint than a roller would but for the hours and hours saved it is worth it. Primed drywall walls and ceiling and put white on ceiling and a color on walls. Also little to no brush work. Which I hate doing, so that is a plus. Would not recommend if your house is finished already, carpet and appliances and whatnot. There is a good amount of over-spray. Do NOT use without respirator and clothes to throw away or tyvek suit. Had already painted the trim by brush so I did not get to spray it but will next time. I bought a smaller tip size cause I am about to do 13 doors. We'll see how that goes.

This is a very nice sprayer for the money. It worked great and cleanup was a snap as long as you remember your dealing with paint so some mess is expected. The more you clean it the easier it gets, the bad part is getting rid of the waste. Would like to see a standard 50 foot hose though

Purchased the X5 3 weeks ago. I have sprayed almost 25 gallons so far and the X5 has performed great. I am a bit spoiled with the more flexible hose on my power washer, the only improvement I could see for the X5.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by daddy9375 Took a longer learning curve than I thought
I had used a sprayer like this a few years back and forgot the technique to get a decent job on the wall. I don't think I had enough paint in the can to start and kept getting air in the line then I had to start over again, my own fault though.
Seems like the more you use it the better you get at it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nickname Quality sprayer for the price
I have used several professional grade sprayers over the years which I usually borrow from friends who are painters. I finally broke down and selected the Graco X5 based on the price and reviews. I am very happy at the quality of the sprayer and can honestly say it compares to the more expensive sprayers I have used in the past but for a fraction of the cost. I really like how light weight the unit is and the ease of transporting it around. Very happy with the purchase

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bob g even and quick delivery of product
The system took a minute to set up. Once we found the proper settings the paint was delivered quickly and evenly. What a time saver for deck railings, the amount of brush strokes saved was countless. Clean up is tedious.

I purchased this sprayer to paint the exterior of our home and detached garage. As I also needed to paint soffit and facia I also purchased the smallest tip to cut down on overspray . Performed awesome and project turned out great. I also purchased the swivel whip hose for better movement and control and a spray shield. The gun itself is easy to use as well as clean with minimal tools needed for disassembly .
I would highly recommend to someone looking to do a large project on a budget and expect excellent results. This purchase should last for many more projects in the future.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joe_P Excellent Sprayer!
I recently purchased the X5 after quite a bit of research between brands and models, and I can honestly say this was the right choice. The unit is everything I had expected, functioning flawlessly. It was easy to setup and painting was a breeze. I used the sprayer with acrylic water based paint on stucco, and plan to use it to stain my redwood fence at a later date. Cleaning after painting was moderate, not too difficult nor extremely easy. The most disappointing was the rigid hose. The provided hose is very difficult to maneuver, it would twist a lot even tho I was using the optional swivel. But once you start painting and it moves along nicely you forget the little inconveniences and applaud how quickly and effortlessly the paint is applied. Excellent paint coverage.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Estim8er It can keep up
Well, I am an old retired spray man who used to use the old canister graco 333. It was great although big and heavy. This weight almost nothing. I usually don't let off the trigger on large areas and this was able to keep pumping.
Great for the home painter.

I bought this to paint my garage (other places/items in the future). I had to get used to how it worked. Did cut down on the time of painting. Once I got the hang of it, was nice to use.

I bought the sprayer to paint a newly installed fence on my back bank. The slope is steep and doing it by hand would have been impossible. With the ability to use a 75 foot hose the job was a snap. Completed spraying 110 feet of fence (both sides) in 1 1/2 hours. Great piece of equipment. Glad I did my research prior to buying one.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Old Fozzie Great Value
I got this unit in July and have used if for a few family projects. It worked well but I found I had to add other pieces to make it a better sprayer. First thing I bought was the Whip Hose. The spray hose supplied is very stiff and makes control difficult. The whip hose being more flexible provides that control. The second issue was getting the right spray tip to work with the right spray guard. I bought a 20 inch extension which came with a Blue spray guard but no spray tip. So being ignorant I put my black spray tip into the blue spay guard and had red stain blow all over mu grey stucco house. Why not have spray guards and spray tips colour matched so the user simply knows to use only the same colour tip as the spray guard. Otherwise for the price you can't beat this unit for the DIY user.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jack my name Perfect for the job
Got the x5 to paint my 1927 craftsman that hasn't been maintained by the previous owners. Started with the old dilapidated garage. Sprayed bonding primer and 2 coats of acrylic. Looks amazing. The Airless performed flawlessly. Only issues were due to my inexperience with the tool. Seems to be a solid unit. Hope I can maintain it and use it for many years to come.

Overall great product. Easy to use with professional results. The only con is the sprayer hose should be more flexible with swivel fittings . It would make it slightly more comfortable to use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Traci J Just what I needed!
My big project this summer was painting the exterior of our house. I was very nervous to use a paint sprayer for fear of drips and uneven coloring, etc. This sprayer was excellent! It is very important that you follow the instructions step by step putting it together and getting it ready. There was one step I was missing and it kept spurting out globs of paint. Once I reread my steps and saw I forgot to turn a knob I had zero problems with it during my entire project. It took me about 5 minutes, at the most, to get the hang of the best way to hold and move the sprayer. We used very good quality paint and got excellent coverage with this sprayer. The cleaning of the sprayer does take some time if you do it right so it will not give you problems when you start it up next time. The good thing about that, though, is if you have to take a break of a day or two you can just cover things with plastic and do not have to clean the whole sprayer. I am so happy with the way the exterior of our house looks after painting! I will be using this sprayer for many projects in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CHIEF EASY TO USE ONCE YOU UNDERSTAND EACH STEP.
I BOUGHT THE X5 LAST WEEK FOR A LARGE FENCE PROJECT. EACH PANEL I SPRAYED NEEDED BACKBRUSHING AND VERY OFTEN I HAD TO CLEAR THE TIP IN ORDER TO CONTINUE SPRAYING THE NEXT PANEL-I FOUND PURGING AND CLEANING WAS THE MOST EFFECTIVE METHOD TO CONTINUE SPRAYING.

My X5 was simple to set up, simple to operate, easy to use, and easy to clean. Very, very pleased with my sprayer. Accessories are not cheap, but to me,the sprayer was well worth the money.

I liked using the product. It was fast to use. However, the startup and cleaning procedure was complicated and time consuming. I would only use it for big jobs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIYDAN X5 Airless Paint Strayer - Time Saving, Well Worth it
Bought this paint sprayer as we are repainting the exterior of our house. We had already painted the front, took 2 weekends with brushes and 3 coats of paint. Decided to bite the bullet and spend the money on a sprayer. The X5 was the model we chose, and after set up, we painted the entire side of the house in less than 30 minutes. Coverage was complete with 1 coat, very easy to use and a lot of fun! Clean up took longer that the actual painting. Set up and clean up take some time, but once you read that manual carefully and get to know the steps involved, it will become routine and take much less time for the set up when we paint again. Highly recommend this product.
