Rated 5 out of 5Â by Glider Great sprayer for a great price
Bought this sprayer to paint our entire new construction house. Instructions were easy to follow and the laminated quick set-up/use/cleaning instruction booklet is great to have on hand. Also comes with an instruction DVD that gives good pointers for set-up, spraying and cleaning. Hard to believe this thing isn't considered to be a pro level sprayer. The positive pressure pump kept the pressure up all the way through the job. Reversible tip for clearing clogs is AWESOME, especially when you are 20 feet up a ladder and can clear a clogged tip without coming back down!
So far, only the exterior is done, but I don't forsee any problems with the interior. Used this sprayer for exterior primer and 2 different colors of exterior latex paint. Interior primer, white ceilings and 5 interior colors in my future.

For the first coat (black) of a mural over a big rough exterior wail for a local art gallery and art district, I bought the X5. It was steady and delivered a consistent spray pattern. The smaller tip size keeps the pressure where it need to be. Works hard but gets the job done.

The 515 tip that comes with Grayco Sprayers is fine for most all paints and primers except thin transparent deck stains. For thin material GET A SMALLER TIP.
Important Setup: Begin by almost closing off the pressure valve, then spray a short column. Look for a paint bead along the edge of the column, which indicates the need for more pressure. Increase pressure a little and try again. When the beads are gone you are in adjustment for that particular paint. Do not turn up pressure too high or you will get overspray. With the pressure just right you'll get a nice clean spray pattern. And you'll get more paint on the wall than yourself. :-)

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'mon....no brainer.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Fr8doggy Exchanged a much inferior product for this and WOW....What a difference.
My previous two sprayers (brand name begins with a W and ends with an R) did not work correctly right out of the box. It was the second sprayer from (W****R) that I owned and was never completely satisfied. Why I kept buying that brand I will never know. Now I have this sprayer (X5) and boy what a difference. Got it home and had half the exterior painted in 3 hours. Clean up was as easy as the setup. I highly recommend this product to those that need a quality sprayer for the occasional weekend project.
