Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kent Great product not a good customer service
excellent Gun, works well with latex, you just need to dilute it by 15% with windshield washer liquid according to Youtube. worked well for me and I am not an expert. the package have 2 separate gun handle each have 1.4 mm nozzle, when I called them and ask for 1.8 mm as other reviewers says it was missing. They told me that gun comes with 2 1.4 mm, one is HVLP and other is not. and they wanted to charge me $17.00 for 1.8 mm tip which is just a metal piece. whole gun is sold for $30 on HD.
anyway, some were able to get it and now they dont provide the tip and you are stuck with two gun regular and one is HVLP with same size nozzle. That is ludicrous.

I dreaded painting the rails for the deck this spring. My neighbor suggested I get a spray gun. I thought that I would use a lot of paint with a spray gun. It was just the opposite. I sprayed the rails and my daughter followed up with brushing and we were done in 1/3 the time and it looks great. I am now looking forward to use my spray gun on my next project.

I did not have any experience with these types of sprayers but have been very pleased with my initial uses. It is important to follow the directions with regards to adjusting the spray pattern and flow. I also had a very good source of air, which I think really helped. The product itself is composed of very quality materials and I have been very happy with my purchase.

The HVLP and Standard Gravity Feed Spray Gun Kit from local HD. I inspected all components and noticed the PN 9B9802-18,9B9803B1-18,9H9809C Air cap, nozzle,needle 1.8mm are not included. I called the husky customer service and they spoke with the warehouse they are shipping out the parts. The call took about 5 min great service. The larger size will help with thicker material like marine varnish.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimH Good for the price
I have only used the HVLP gun in the kit so far. These are NOT technically HVLP as they require 20 to 40 psi to operate. True HVLP runs on 10 psi or less. Be that as it may, this spray gun works well and puts out a nice fan. I used it to paint a very small part approximately an 8" cube. It atomized the paint sufficiently and did a nice even job. I am spraying Sherwin Williams Polane catalyzed paint. Clean up was easy and the small cup that I used came 99.9% clean with very little solvent. The best part of this gun is that you can spray virtually 100% of the paint in the cup. There is no waste or need to mix a little extra. This is far better than siphon style guns. I have an Accuspray $400 true HVLP (5psi) gun and this new gun will be replacing it as it lets me get closer to the parts on a table because there is no can hanging under the gun, as well as its efficiency and ease of cleanup.
One other thing that is needed is a stand for the gun. There is no easy way to add paint to the gun and put it down between jobs. I made my own from some wood and it works perfectly. Pictures included.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JDC Latex needed thinning or larger, 1.8mm aperture nozzle (optional through Husky Parts Dept)
I bought these guns to spray latex Glidden Gripper primer and latex satin enamel on kitchen cabinets. I filtered the primer through fine mesh cone filters before filling the gun cup and used the gun filter which was included in the kit. The gun would not spray the primer until thinned by about 20%-25%. I called the Husky parts line at 1-800-654-0688 and ordered the 1.8mm tip and needle for both guns in the kit. Cost was about $16 each with shipping for a total of roughly $32. I have not yet received the larger aperture tips but I suspect the additional .4mm will make all the difference in the world when trying to spray thicker latex finishes. The gun did an excellent job spraying the thinned primer and left a smooth as glass finish but i'd prefer not to dilute by 25% for obvious reasons.
The knobs for the fluid control, fan size control and air control are all plastic so be careful not to cross-thread! As much use as these knobs will get they should be metal and therefore 4 stars for my review instead of 5.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jason Outstanding for interior Latex paint
I rarely write reviews for products but I went out of my way to come back to the website and write about this gravity sprayer. I bought it five months ago and I have been working this tool HARD. I first used it to spray interior bannisters and hand rail on stairs (big project, mostly for all the masking work), later to do kitchen cabinets/doors/drawers and more recently to stain exterior adirondack chairs. There is a lot of ambiguity about using latex paint in HVLP sprayers but let me be clear that this sprayer laid down latex paint beautifully without clumps, chunks or drips (no I did not dilute the latex paint in any way). A few key recommendations for using latex paint in this sprayer: use the larger aperture nozzle (included), warm paint to room temperature for several days beforehand and use mesh straining cloth to strain out any chunks as you pour paint into the sprayer reservoir (mesh straining cloth available in any paint department). I ran it with the adjustable air input and paint input settings dialed as high as possible with compressor at the recommended 40PSI. When you are ready to spray, spend a few minutes dialing in settings while spraying on test material. Cleaning the tool takes 10 minutes once you get the hang of it. Really pleased with this tool. High quality and it comes with extra parts which is a plus. This is my first Husky product and I would definitely consider their other products in the future based upon this experience (see attached before and after shots of bannister).
