Dale,
I know I am late to the conversation. The biggest reason I back roll is because I live in a very hot environment. Sprayers in general trap air bubbles and when the gas is heated and cooled it can cause paint to peel off of the substrate. I essentially use a sprayer to get paint from the bucket to the wall. 2 guys on a crew (1 spraying, 1 rolling) can paint a typical 1500 sq' house in a couple of days this way, more importantly we don't get called back to repair our work in 6 months to a year. some of the guys will also talk about smaller tip sizes, check with the manufacturer of your paint for proper tip sizes, most Behr paints require a 0.017" diameter tip. I have found it hard to find a small fan with that size orifice (217, 317, 417...etc). I would highly suggest a sprayer in general, but there is still some work in getting things done right.

Answer: 
Hi Dale,
Back rolling is used to even and spread out coatings or to add a stippled finish. A stippled finish is much easier to match if the wall needs to be repaired later.
It is purely up to you to add the back rolling process.

Hello Dale!
Back rolling or back brushing are techniques used to help even the coating and promote penetration into the wood when using stain.
The speed with which you're able to apply the coating increases as compared to painting by hand.
However, the size of the project is my landmark for spraying versus rolling.

Hello Dale!
Back rolling or back brushing are techniques used to help even the coating and promote penetration into the wood when using stain.
The speed with which you're able to apply the coating increases as compared to painting by hand.
However, the size of the project is my landmark for spraying versus rolling.
Small projects simply are not worth spraying and cleanup.
Mid-size projects begin to be time savers.
And large projects will certainly benefit from spraying.
I use my Graco with the volume control turned down to prevent over-application. And I commonly work without assistance.
But if you have extra help, you can turn the volume up and work even faster while your assistant back rolls the surface.
NOTE: I always prefer controlling the spray rather than blowing a large amount of paint on the wall and then smoothing. Read Less

I never back roll unless I get a drip, the sprayers you can get today put a nice coat on if you know how to use the sprayer correctly. So don't back roll unless a customer requests it...not necessary if you are doing your own painting

The point of rolling after you spray is to either remove any runs, or it also offers a more even and complete coverage.
Trust me, for the time it takes to run a roller over the surface you just painted in comparison to running the roller in a pan of paint is minimal. The paint job will come out much better.
Get a helper to run a roller as you paint, you'll be suprised how fast you can get it done.

One of the most common mistakes with an airless sprayer is overlapping the paint strokes. This will make back rolling more likely. The unit comes with a video, its a great way to learn how to paint with an airless sprayer. There are also many good videos online that can help you learn the do's and don'ts. Sometimes you have a siding profile that may require back rolling after spraying. You can experiment with different pressure settings on this unit. Start off with the lowest pressure that gives you even coverage then increase the pressure till you have the pattern that covers without building up paint on the surface. It takes a few minutes to get a feel for this type of painting. Going to a smaller fan or angle tip can reduce or eliminate this problem. By having a tip with a narrow fan you can spray a smaller area and reduce your chances of paint build-up. If memory serves these units come with a tip for latex paint, which is relatively thick, you can buy others for thinner paints, like stains and lacquers. Read Less

It would be very hard to spray small pieces since this puts out much more paint compared to a compressed air paint set-up. You may want to look into one of the smaller hand held airless paint sprayers since they tend to work at a lower pressure and less volume.

Answer: 
Hello, Thank you for purchasing a Graco X7 Paint Sprayer. I am sorry you are having issues with the tip clogging. Graco suggests that you strain all your coatings with a 1 or 5 gallon strainer before spraying. Also, check to make sure you have a clean filter inside the spray gun handle. A dirty or damaged gun filter will not catch all the large particles which can clog the spray tip. I hope this helps.

Seemed complicated, but I had it running in about 10 minutes. Sprayed 1500sq feet of shadow box fence in about an hour. Didn't do too much research, but $400 was about half what a painter wanted to charge. I thought the accessories were expensive, now I'm so excited by the results and time savings that I'm buying them all. Can't wait for spring so I can paint my garage, shed, and maybe even my house. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time Saver! I bought this because between my son in laws and have a lot to painting. I have used it on 2 outdoor decks and a gazebo. I am not sure how well it work indoors. My advice is to make sure you buy enough paint. Most paint types will tell you how many sq feet for a roller, brush or sprayer. I believe I used about 20-25% more paint BUT saved hours. Most of my issues were my own fault not the machine. Plan to cover everything and go overboard. Some spray drifted 20 feet away and got on some areas not covered. Also, when you change the nozzle position re-tighten the housing because it will leak all over your hand. I tried to change angles and it losend. Very easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great right out of the box. I had a big job to do, painting the outside of the house. Including all fascia, soffites, all trim and doors. Paint sprayer was a must.. The Graco X7 was my choice after reading many reviews. It did not let me down. It worked great right out of the box, good manual and quick ref. card. My only wish not complaint, is that the gun had a swivel were it attaches to the hose. This due to the stiffness of the hose, you need to align the hose every time you reposition to spray the next part of the job. In fact a swivel at the gun and the pump end would all most eliminate this little annoyance. great sprayer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Price was perfect for me. This sprayer was purchased to make short work of door painting. I intend to use it also to paint cedar shake sided house in the late spring. I have never used an airless sprayer or any paint sprayer for that matter but have been a contractor for nearly 20 years. The quick guide included was more than enough to get the machine running and I had no problem getting the work done. It sprayer fast and once it was adjusted I had perfectly even coverage. The sprayer actually goes faster than I'd like with the 515 tip included in my package so I will look into reducing the rate of spray for some future applications. This will be a light use product for me personally but I can imagine that it would last a long time if you take the time to keep it clean after every single use.

The grip was easy to handle, and the overall flow was easy to adjust and control. We were able to paint our little house in three hours, which was wonderful!

Not to mention I was able to spray my house and garage in 2 short autumn days. THANKS to all who designed and built my x7. I had to call cause my tip did spit a real small amount of paint, but after talking to a graco representative I didn't have my pressure up enough and that solved the only problem I had.
