Rated 5 out of 5Â by SouthernTMT Easy to Use, clears clogs quickly and great tool
It is easy to handle, follow the directions to ensure you don't over fill the container and ensure you have enough paint to allow the paint sprayer to perform as designed. I used the pro power paint sprayer to paint my bench I made. In the past I have used brush and rollers, this was by far quicker to get the job done. Then new reversable tip made clearing the clog quick and easy. I am a hands on and love to see visuals. I would like to see a quick start guide included, but other than that small sugguestion. I am very satisfied with my pro power spray painter. It is like any other tool, you must take care of it by cleaning it. The brushes and oil includes made the clean up job easier.

The Ryobi 18v ProTip Sprayer is an excellent product and I would recommend it for any homeowner or DIYr. 7 years ago I painted the entire outside of my house with Behr Ultra paint but I applied it using brushes and rollers. The paint looked great and held up well but the task was extremely labor intensive doing it with brushes and rollers. I recently had to remove an old window and resized the opening for a standard size window. I ended up having to redo and repaint a section of siding. I purchased a new gallon of Behr Ultra exterior paint but this time I applied it using the ProTip Sprayer. The job was extremely easy to do with the sprayer and the results were great. I set up the ProTip on a piece of scrap wood and put all the items I needed to do the task on a couple of saw horses. I tightened all the fittings prior to the test run. However, there existed some dripping. The drip issue was solved easily by applying some plumbers tape to the male threads for the locking nut located on the front of the housing. This worked well and I no longer had any leakage. The Ryobi Sprayer is still considered a tool and should be cleaned , maintained and stored properly like any other quality tool. Taking a little time to soak the parts in warm water and soap. Brush all parts with the cleaning brush included with the sprayer making sure to add a few drops of oil on the piston shaft. I compared cleaning the paint sprayer to cleaning a small firearm. If you want it to give you good results always take the time and clean it, store it and maintain it like you would an expensive gun.

This little thing is great. I used it to stain a 300sq ft deck with Tranlucent stain. It turned out beautiful. It looks as if I had a professional painter complete it. I love that it is rechargable so you don't have to drag a cord around. I did have to charge it twice to complete my project with 2 coats.

I have been painting for about fifty years. I purchased this product in the hopes that it would satisfy my needs for small spray jobs such as cabinets, doors, etc. I used this sprayer the first time for approximately 20 minutes and it sprayed okay, however when I went to clean it, I noticed the pump piston which is made of plastic was already beginning to fail from the pressure of the adjoining spring. It had already developed a crack and the plastic was showing signs of further deterioration. I do not recommend this product. I will stick to my small Spary Tech airless rig for spraying even though it requires a lot of clean up time, it does an excellent job. This might be a good product if it was re-engineered with a metal pump piston and housing.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by migs this product i will recomend to home owner best for the small jobs around the house
this sprayer came out just in the time i was looking for something to finish the room remodel i was doing
i am an owner of a lot of ryobi tools and this sprayer is a good addition to my tool box. I use it specially for the white color on my ceiling and all the crown base and casing of the room came out excelent.
the only recommendation i'll add is if the container shape and size be a little more capacity for like it happend to me the ceiling otherwise it very good tool and easy to disasemble and clean
