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.

Purchased this with primary purpose of staining fence and then using for future painting projects. Worked better than expected. Online videos and instruction card were helpful.

I just purchased this paint sprayer after reading the reviews here and watching the YouTube videos by Graco. I hand rolled a section of my fence on Sunday and it took me over 3 hours. I was able to paint 3x the length of fence I'd done by hand, in only 5 minutes! As others have stated, read the directions carefully and follow them explicitly and you will do just fine. I had no problems with clogging, uneven spray pattern or overspray. I only wish there was a way to power wash the fence as quickly! I may not have to use this sprayer often, but the time savings is so worth it!

I have been putting off buying a good sprayer as I was scared of how to use it. However I am glad I bought this Graco X5 which amazed me with it's performance. Once you learn how to use it the speed of coverage is time saving compared to brush painting. Highly recommended.

I would highly suggest every homeowner own a paint sprayer! I have used this exact same sprayer, borrowed from my father in law, for years. I decided it was time to own one myself for faster access when needed. I used it to stain our newly installed fence on a half acre lot. It went as quickly and smooth as it could have, only taking about 4 hrs on both sides.

Light weight, ease of operation and it'll blow thick Latex right out of the can with no thinning. Cleaning is a snap with the water connection for Latex.

I needed an easy to use method to stain a privacy fence instead of using a roller/brush. A small sprayer with quart cup just wouldn't do it but I also didn't want to spend a fortune. The GRACO X5 fits this requirement perfectly! Very well made and tough. Easy to use. Being able to dunk the hose in a 5 gallon bucket and spray perfectly is the ticket. The spray is even and consistent.

I bought this after spending 20 hours applying 2 primer coats to a rusted galvanized roof. It took 30 minutes for each coat with the Magnum X-5. This is my first attempt using a sprayer

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ron Stewart Not for the beginner
Admittedly I am not known as a handyman and maybe I picked the wrong project to start (a long row of outdoor steps). There seems to be a lot of wasted stain on start-up and finishing, plus there was approximately 2 inches at the bottom of the can that would not pump out. Additionally the sprayer kept clogging up.

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.

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.

Bought this a month ago as trying to paint a garden picket fence and pergola with lattice was too much hand work. Had a smaller sprayer from another manufacturer but it spat paint blobs. Grace x5 produced smooth paint surface and easy to use & clean up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TJ This sprayer cut my project time in half, at least!
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 3.0 out of 5.0 by Edwin Half time spent painting the other unclogging
I bought this to paint a recently constructed barn with heavy stucco, approx. 800 sqft, which could only be done with a sprayer. Did not want to spend a lot of money for something that I may not use again for a while if ever. I thinned out the latex paint with 10% water and still had to unclogged it almost every 60-90 seconds. Very frustrating and I would not recommend it if you plan to give it a fair amount of usage.

This is the first airless sprayer I have ever owned. Over a three day period, I painted my 16' high garage ceiling and walls. After 10 gal of primer and 13 gal of latex paint, the X 5 worked flawlessly! It was easy to use, easy to
clean with easy directions. I will recommend this product to everyone!!!

I bought this machine and painted our fence. It makes the work less painful and the paint goes on nice and smooth. Just finished priming a wall for a mural at a school too. Way faster than rollers. Love my Graco Paint sprayer and when I had questions about it, the customer service at Graco was top notch!!

Nice sprayer, light weight with ample length of hose. It is a bit awkward spraying inside tight places (cabinet) because the hose doesn't swivel. I checked Graco for swivel but haven't found one. There are plenty of steps in order to use and clean the sprayer and Graco has excellent online videos to help with this. I just used my smartphone to access the videos while setting up the sprayer. This is fine sprayer for the occasional project. After using/cleaning I put it right back in its box for storage. Graco also supplies Pump Armour.Still going to have to find a swivel.
