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.

I purchased the x7 sprayer, I immediately noticed it would always get clogged. I constantly have to keep an extra piece of cardboard nearby in order to clean the tip (flip the tip from the spray direction to the open direction then shoot a stream, the flip it back to the spray direction; I call this the spit procedure). The second time I used it would not pickup paint. Called Graco, they taught me how to open it and re-align a spring and check ball in the intake. This got the gun picking up the paint again. The clogging up of the nozzle is always there. You have to constantly have it "spit" on the floor to get it spraying again. Every other time I use the thing I have to re-align the spring and check ball in the intake to get it to run. This is a horrible product, I would not advice anyone to purchase it. Don’t get me wrong, when it works it sprays well. Keeping it running reliably is the problem. By the way I only use new HD purchased paint and primer. Now I’m trying to get out from under it, but lost my receipt and HD won’t take it back.

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 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 ...............

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Frustrated Greco Magnum X7 and X7 Pro Bad Pressure Pumps
I bought 3 X7 paint sprayers in a 24 hr period and non of them worked. All three of them had bad pumps. This isn't an infringement on Homedepot, but on Greco Magnum products. The only product that would push successfully through the equipment was H2O/water. Homedepot needs to find a better wholesale product to perform for the homeowner/contractor remodeler.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SamtheMan Excellent Value, Good Coverage, and Great Time Saver
I bought this sprayer, the 20" tip extension, and a couple different tips with it. I love it. I made this purchase to paint the interior of a 3,983 square foot house that has a large great room with 20 foot ceilings and about 25X30. In total we went through about 38 gallons of paint and 9 gallons of Primer. Not many sprayers will spray primer and this one does. I don't usually do reviews but felt compelled to support this product since its so rare these days to feel like you got your money's worth. Take your time cleaning it and it will pay off. I also never strained my paint but probably should have.

I have a big painting project and decided to purchase a airless. I had nothing but problems, the tip kept clogging and the suction screen is so tall that it starts to suck air when there is still a lot of paint left in the can. when it is working it works well but it is a fight. I am hoping home depot will take it back. JUNK
