Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OldCrank Outstanding value
I am a professional painter, been in business for 30 years. I have purchased, rented, and used many different types of airless sprayers over the years, this little Magnum X7 is easily the most fun little unit I have ever owned. Lightweight, easy to get in and out of work areas... and I don't know what some of these people were doing wrong, but I rarely, if ever, had to stop a project because of a problem. Once, it failed to pick up and prime, but I was able to take off the valve, inspect, found a tiny grain of sand lodged in the ball valve, and presto! unit worked like brand new....down time maybe 20 minutes. I rate this Magnum X7 very highly.

Great product and don't dread painting anymore. Never used a paint sprayer before and after a few minutes you would have thought I used one for years. Do view the video first.

While this does an excellent job once you get it up and running, the biggest problem is the spray tip constantly needing adjustment. I do not understand why it keeps getting clogged. We are using the recommended tip and followed all operating instructions to the letter. This one issue added more time to work that could have been done in under an hour. By the time my husband and I were finished with the job, we were covered in deck paint much more than you get from a roller and brush method. This was all because of fiddling with a spray tip. It's a great unit, but this sort of inconvenience defeats the purpose of having a product meant to save time.
The other con is how the unit stops spraying if the paint is not well over the end of the suction tube. You are left with a good amount of paint at the bottom.The reason I bought this was to spare me the pain of having to paint a tremendous amount of lattice work around a split level deck, but now I still have lattice work to paint that only needs a quart or so. That small area of lattice work will take several hours to finish, but it could have been done in just 2 minutes with the sprayer. Ugh.
I have decided NOT to use this for the floors of the decks for the fact that this method does eat up more paint than the roller method. I think it is a good unit if you can keep it going without too much fiddling around. It will save you a lot of time and effort for larger jobs. Even with the kinks, the job was done much more quickly than painting lattice by hand. I cannot recommend to others because they might not have the patience to deal with the spray tip issue, or the waste of paint. We will buy a new tip (even though this one was new) to see if there is a difference.

Used my new X7 to spray Behr Premium semi-transparent stain on my large deck. Covered up the plants and house with Painters plastic and a meticulous taping job. Followed the instructions on the stain and used the 515 spray tip and had my wife back roll with a 5/16" microfiber roller. We knocked this out in no time. Hand brushing all that lattice would have been a chore.The sprayer performed flawlessly. I bought the swivel and the spray hose whip as people suggested. Also, as people have mentioned, the DVD instructions are awesome. This was a water based stain so cleanup was a breeze using the garden hose flush. Lastly, grab yourself a spray shield- 36" x 9" with handle. A great tool to keep from spraying unwanted areas. Go to YouTube and watch videos of people using an airless sprayer. Next up will be spraying my new T1-11 sided shed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joe So far everything has worked fine. Maintenance a little higher than expected.
Works well, must be careful to follow instructions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bullfrog excellent purchase
i have 20 years painting experience . i have used many different types of airless pumps . this is an excellent pump for the price . i was not sure if it would maintain consistent pressure . when i got into an open area . i opened up the gun to see what it could do . it maintained pressure consistently. you will have to add a spray whip and swivel to your hose at the gun to alleviate coiling . but that goes for any airless hose . excellent value for the price . pump , hose and gun . you will not find a better set up for the price . i highly recommend this product ...............
