Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Drew Easy to use
We bought this when we were remodeling a room for priming everything at once, worked great and super fast and easy. We even used it to paint the room afterwards. Clean up is simple just run water through it then use the packet of stuff when your done. I was a bit more picky on clean up but I plan and will use this for many years. I would plan on buying more paint than you need simply because it does use a bit to fill the hose when priming, but you also pump it back in can when your done.

For the price this sprayer worked great. I used it to paint a patio pergola (a daunting task) and it made it a breeze. A lot of prep time (weeks) went into preparing the pergola because it was in really bad shape, so I was nervous of the time it would take to paint. But as soon as we started painting it only took a couple of hours. The paint was applied thick enough to cover various textures with a generous coat. The sprayer was also easy enough to use to be able to manevour the various surfaces (all sides of slats and posts). I did use a brush over the paint applied by the sprayer in some areas where the wood was damaged to ensure it got deposited into deep crevices, but even that was easier with the paint already there. Although there was some manual intervention the job was significantly easier and time reduced using the sprayer. Next job is a fence, which I'm sure will be easy and quick due to the flat surface.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by beachboy It was a mistake not reading all of the reviews.
I purchased this sprayer to cut my painting time on the interior of a home we purchased but spent more time trying to keep it working than what it would have taken to roll the paint. The sprayer lost prime over and over again. I tried thinning the paint but no help. I decided to call it a day and sat down to clean the sprayer. Some how I lost the rubber seat for the spray tip and had to order a replacement.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Spiderfreak80 Good for the price, but don't use the tip.
So I decided to move down from a wheeled sprayer to one I can carry about. This is just for use around the house. This is replacing a Wagner Dual Stoke that I had for like 10 years that was great. I average about 40 gallons a year on various projects.
For the price, this sprayer seems sturdy, controls are solid, and everything is easy to use where it is located. Although this is 1/2 HP, it works harder for sure than the 3/8 HP Wagner I had. This sprayer is single stroke pump. It handled unthinned latex ceiling paint well enough. Whatever you do, test spray with the included tip before jumping into your whole project. My tip was a piece of junk and put out like three heavy lines in the fan pattern. I would have run to HD to pick up a Graco tip but I was rushed on today's project. The hose that comes with the sprayer is one of the stiffer ones. I am using my better quality hose that I had from before. Kudos to Milwaukee for including two matched "wrenches" to be able to connect and disconnect things without having your toolbag around. Kinda curious why they supplied those but not one that would fit the tip housing ?? I really like the rubber grip on the gun. It cleaned up surprising well...wonder why Graco and Titan don't do some like it. It comes with some powder to mix into a solution to run through the pump at the end of cleaning. I prefer running a little lubricant through. I think that is why my Wagner lasted so long. Also, there is no place to oil this pump...makes me a little nervous. I will probably reach out to their customer support for some advice on that. Overall I am happy with it. Just don't expect it to spray like a 400 or 500 dollar sprayer.

I bought this sprayer to paint the exterior of my house, I could not believe how easy and fast it was. This sprayer is a dream come true. Just put the pick up in the larger hole of the 5 gallon paint bucket and spray. Cleanup was a breeze too. BUY THIS SPRAYER, IT'S A MILWAUKEE YOU CAN'T GO WRONG, ESPECIALLY WITH A 2 YEAR WARRANTY.

Lightweight, good power with low current draw: 1/2HP yielding 0.24gpm at 2000 psi. It is a champ.
No problem spraying unthinned masonry paint or thick acrylic exterior paint with supplied 515 tip. With the 7 by the "G" brand, would have required a 517 to get a filled pattern.
However, I will warn you that the first one I purchased had a bad gun, blew out tip twice AND didn't seal well so paint drooled all over the place, probably wasted 15% of what actually made it to wall. Thankfully, met a Milwaukee rep in a HD parking lot, learned that since it was less than 90 days old, could return to HD. So the rated one is the reorder.

I purchased the airless paint sprayer to restore some old painted cabinets. The instructions for the sprayer almost made me worry that it might be a bit complicated but once I actually used the machine it proved to be much easier. It is compact and sturdy with no need for a separate air storage area to build up pressure to spray the paint evenly. It is pretty easy to clean as well if you connect it to a garden hose and spray it into a spare waste bucket. Great Job Milwaukee.
