can you paint ceilings with this rig?

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi Desperado, The Graco X5 is an excellent choice for spraying ceilings. Add a 20" or 30" tip extension to make it even easier.

Can I use an oil based deck stain like TWC with the graco x5 sprayer? Does stain ruin the pump seals?

Asked by: txagfp
Yes, just use a solvent like Mineral Spirits to clean it out. However if the stain is very thin be sure to get a smaller tip or you'll be putting out too much material.

can you use a 50 foot hose with this sprayer

Asked by: bear
50' is probably pushing the sprayer's limits. But I've spoken with contractors who swear by Grayco and have told me they exceed the manufacturer's specs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny! I'm not a painter and I actually hate painting but it's been a tough winter and I took some painting jobs to make ends meet. A month prior to purchasing this I had painted an apartment by hand and it took a week. I did some homework and decided to get the X5 because I had a couple more jobs lined up. I took one day prepping the house. Laying down plastic over all the floors and windows. taping the ceiling and moulding. That was the hardest part of the job. Once I figured everything out and hit my stride I painted an entire apartment in about 3 hours. I will never paint a house by hand again....this was awesome. Yes there's overspray, yes theres a lot of prep involved, and yes there's some tedious cleaning but an entire apartment in 3 hours? C' brainer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have bought a long time ago Took me several days over several weekends to paint the first coat on the sides of a metal pole barn with a roller. I spent about another 12 hours painting 1/3 of a metal pole barn roof with a roller. It took so long due to the raised edges of the panels, working with a roller, and frequent trips up and down the ladder. Couldn't take it any longer and researched paint sprayers. Purchased this one based on the reviews and couldn't be happier. Watched the informative DVD, read the manual, and let 'er rip. Finished the other 2/3 of the roof in about 2 hours with much better coverage. Took me less than 3 hours to put second coat on all 4 sides! Well worth the money. Bought a 50' hose since 25' was not enough to reach the roof. Cleanup was not a painful as I thought it would be. I used exterior latex paint from a 5 gallon bucket. I didn't have to crank up the pressure all the way to obtain a good spraying pattern - about halfway between prime and full blast. Bite the bullet and get one!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bummer - broke after 2 hours of use I hate to say it, but I bought this today and it died after 2 hours of intermittent use. The pump motor stopped working and i had not been working it hard. I was painting my eaves, so i would spray for 3 seconds 4-5 times per eave, then move the ladder and repeat. The motor died once, but it came back after a few minutes. the second time, that was it. I called the customer support # and they said I should bring it in to a service center. Heck, i just bought it, i'm not going to invest untold hours getting it fixed when it should not be broken. Back it went. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product! I bought this paint sprayer to help me stain my backyard fence. I am a female homeowner and I found the directions to be clear, but there are a lot of steps of preparation. But, once I got the prep steps down, the actual use of the machine was super easy, and I was able to stain my fence QUICKLY and EASILY. AND, I had fun doing it. I have not used it indoors, only outdoors. There was a little spray and I incidentally sprayed the neighbors garage and downspouts, but it was minor. If you have painting or staining, I would recommend this sprayer. It has great coverage, and is very quick. But, the clean up and set-up time is more than roller painting, I think it is worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Your search is over, BUY !! This is the sprayer for any big job. I purchased my X5 about 4 years ago to paint our new house of 4,300 sq/ft. Sprayed around about 100 gals of primer/paint. Used to stain my front porch just this past week and going to get my back deck this coming weekend. Well worth the cost !! Pros: Cheaper than paying a pro to get a big job done quick, spray volume adjustable, sprays any liquid paints and stains, quick clean up, easy control with very little practice, saves on paint, can purchase roller brush and extensions for any and all applications Cons: Have to purchase a swivel to keep hose fron becoming tangled, Sometimes have to set sprayer on something in order for pick up hose to reach the bottom of a 5 gallon bucket, need back rolling to prevent sand-paper like feel of final finish due to over spray (learned that the hard way) lol, not for painting an interior room without buying the brush roller This is an awesome sprayer and any of the cons are so minor to not even consider them when thinking of buying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent paint sprayer, well made product Graco made a good product with the X5 sprayer. I borrowed an X7 sprayer from a relative and was impressed with it's performance, so I bought an X5 for my next project after reading reviews. X5 is a good quality, easy to use sprayer, comes with instructions for about everything you can think of, and includes a DVD. The sprayer came with everything i needed to start painting, with the exception of paint of course. Its fairly light weight and easily portable. The sprayer worked well on the porch railing i was painting. With latex paint, machine cleans easily with a water hose. Haven't tried any oil based yet. I have no second thoughts about the purchase, was worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great little sprayer I purchased this sprayer to paint my parents house while on I was on vacation. I already own a larger graco sprayer, just forgot to pack it in my suitcase... The pump and spray quality for this unit is very good. Unless you were using a heavy industrail material, this sprayer offers results equal to high end models. The only drawback to this model is the spray gun. Althought it works just fine, the filter it uses is specific to it. If you are in an area without a Home Depot near by ( believe it or not still possible) the filter may be hard to find. If you need to buy a new gun, the cost is around $90.00 for a decent one . The amount the next larger unit would cost, wich includes a better gun with parts widely available. Still this is an excellent sprayer.i

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed! 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Painters Helper I needed to paint the awnings on my house. After painting them by hand the last couple of times, I decided to look into spraying them. After doing some research and talking to my friends, it was apparent that the Wagner paint sprayres are more troublesome then what they are worth. (I remember using one years ago on a door--I ended up wiping the door down and rolling it because of the lack of spraying quality.) The frinds that I talked to recommended Graco brand sprayers. Also some research that I did told me that Graco products are of high quality. After reviewing prices on a decent sprayer, I was very hesitant to buy one and pay $300 for a basic model not really knowing the quailty of spraying it would do and how well it would work. The sprayer was easy to set-up and the quality of spraying is superior. Also clean-up was simple. (I do recommend reading the manual and watching the DVD that comes with it.) I also recommend a swivel for it so the hose is easy to maneuver. When spraying just make sure you are using the right tip for the right type of paint and to keep the spray gun moving when spraying. (Lots of paint comes out of the sprayer at one time.) In closing, I would say that this sprayer is very good quality and sprays wonderful. If you have quite a bit of painting to do, this little sprayer is ideal for the job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from X5 Airless Sprayer...built to last I worked for a guy back in 2007 flipping houses. He wanted me to paint seven houses for him. He bought the X5 sprayer for the same $299 they are selling it for now. I used it to spray all the ceilings, closets and trim in all seven houses. Once complete he gave me the rig. I have since used it for my own painting business. It gets about 50-75 gallons run through it a year. With basic maintenance it has proven to be quite the workhorse. I replaced the original gun with a better model and added a 50' hose in the last year. It may not be a Titan or other commercial sprayer, but it also doesn't cost $1000, plus the cost of repacking the pump every year or so either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent!!! Bought this sprayer to paint the exterior of my house in late August 2011, and it exceeded my expectations! Works great, great value, and easy to use. Painted the front of the house (stucco, eaves, and fascia board) in about an hour. Prep work actually took much longer - 3 days for washing, scraping, caulking and sanding and about 2-3 hours for masking- but it was well worth it. On stucco, I sprayed and "backrolled" 1st coat, and came back and sprayed on a 2nd coat; although one coat would have been sufficient. 515 tip that comes with it works great for covering large areas, such as the body and eaves, but I would recommend investing in a size 311 tip for trim and tight areas or better control. There is very little overspray with this model, and is precise. Wearing gloves and a mask is a MUST when using sprayer...Clean-up is also breeze. I've also used this sprayer with water-based Alkyd paint to spray metal work and my garage door, and works great - just clean unit sooner as Alkyd paint drys fast and sticks extremely well. Highly recommend!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the purchase After a few weeks of research, I came upon a lot of negative reviews. However, to keep my expense low I decided to purchase the X5. This wasn't the lowest priced one and also not the most expensive. I ignored the negative reviews and went ahead and purchased it anyway. PROS: Off the bat I was able to spray a primer (Sherwin Williams) and Satin Paint without any issues. The coverage was great and after a fast second coat, it looked flawless. I was able to finish my parents entire house from the inside in short amount of time. CONS: After a month stored in my garage with the storage fluid provided, I used it to spray primer again on the outside of one of my flips. I was able to spray almost 1/2 of the house before it stopped building pressure and continued to run the motor. I flushed as normal, and proceeded to stop building pressure. After flushing the whole unit with water (water based paint) I did all the steps to fix the issue (stick pencil to make sure ball valve isn't stuck, etc). Nothing worked. To finish painting I rented a professional pray gun. After countless hours to repair or fix the issue I eventually gave up and called the customer service. Through my customer service experience, they seemed to be willing to help and replace the pump or repair. Once I had the machine at the authorized store, they told me it would not be covered under warranty even though it was 1 month old or less. They stated the issue is not covered under warranty, being the ball valve unit that hold pressure. They mentioned it was the #1 issue with these gracos, and that is not covered under warranty. After speaking to the manufacturer they also proceeded to explain that it is normal wear parts and will not be covered by warranty. All 3 service facilities I tried to get the repair completed at explained that these guns are to be used for a single wall or maybe a single room at max. Their comment was this just isn't a quality product and often times not worth repairing. I paid for the repairs, costing $126.00. After getting 3 recommendations from service providers to sell or get rid of the unit, I decided to fix it and sell it, taking my losses and moving forward. I purchased a commercial Airlessco from Home Depot's used tool sales ($800), since then I have used it 5 times for full hose painting, and that my friends is a quality sprayer. Versus the Graco. After the breakdown within 1 month, and terrible customer service, I would never purchase another Graco product ever again. However you don't realize all the negative reviews, until something happens to you. I suggest you do some research and don't ignore the red flags. Another friend warned me to not purchase their products, I learned the hard way.
