Purchased this sprayer to paint a backyard fence and window shutters. We used exterior paint with primer straight from the can for the fence and didn't have any difficulty with clogging or splattering. The sprayer worked great and we were able to finish both sides of the fence in a day and a half. Used the smaller spray head to paint the window shutters and when finished, the shutters looked brand new. We used an exterior gloss paint (again straight from the can) and the finish was exceptional. I've painted shutters with a brush and you sometimes get globs of paint caught in the corners of the slats - the sprayer eliminated that. I would never paint shutters with a brush again - there is no comparison in the finished product using the sprayer. There was no way we would have finished this project in a weekend without the sprayer. One of the best purchases I've ever made.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by st0rmer Professional grade - Both Wagner and The Home Depot
Using a brush and roller took me the whole morning to stain just the door of 700+ sq ft of fencing. There had to be a better way, and I decided on the Flexio 590, even after reading all the bad reviews.
I do have access to a pro level Graco, and the Flexio 590 performed just as well. Follow all the instructions when using. I did have splutter twice during usage, but it was easily taken care of, and back to working. I did feel the weight of the unit once filled with paint. Cleanup was very easy. Overall, excellent tool Wagner!
I must mention that the unit, when bought, had the nozzle seal installed backwards, both in the unit and the spare nozzle. The direction of the seal is so important that the manual makes specific mention of the direction on page 13 of the manual. So, please check your unit before you start using it.
As for the value, I did have a great experience in The Home Depot. The Flexio 590 is slightly cheaper in another big box store. Of course I only found out after I had bought the unit. I called, and Customer Support recommended I bring my receipt back to THD. In store, THD invoked their price match guarantee, and so I got excellent value for the tool. Well done THD!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brad This is Awsome!
I had purchased another paint sprayer from another business and it did not go well. I had to strip off all of the paint and re-sand the head board I was working on. I purchased this product and used the fine spray head. Paint job turned out great and it looks like a professional did the job! I am really impressed with this product. I also used it to paint some siding on my house and that looks great! I plan on using this to paint my basement walls and ceiling. I am so happy with this product. Wish I would have purchased it in the first place. Would have saved me a lot of time and work.! Also easy to clean. I just use some warm water, rinse everything off, let it dry and put it away. Like the carry case also! As with any paint sprayer, make sure you tarp off the area where you are painting.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KC Inconsistent, messy, inconvenient and wastes paint
I purchased the 590 with the intent of achieving a fine spray finish on custom cabinets I built for my home office. But, after perfecting many miter cuts and sanding my cabinets to perfection the 590 ruined my cabinet finish. I read the instructions, purchased compatible paint, adjusted the flow and volume, and practiced on cardboard but halfway through the first coat it started spraying globs of paint, which I had to go back over with a fine roller. Also, I had to strip down and clean the gun between coats, which is very messy and time consuming. I attempted the final coat and again halfway thru it started to spray globs of paint. My purpose for using the 590 was to achieve a fine spray finish, but I wound up having to use a roller anyway and achieved your typical finish. This product might be good for an outdoor project where you are only trying to slop on paint, but I would not recommend it for a professional finish. I would save yourself time and money and just use a good old roller and pan. In summary, the 590 as a complete waste of time and money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PapJ Real satisfied with this product
There were only three things that I didnot enjoy like refilling the container and the Sean for the container.
Had to refill to often, had to make sure it was tight and then getting it open again. It would be ok if you have large hands.
Overall the 590 worked great . Didn't have any trouble painting with it.or cleaning the unit

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BigD My first paint sprayer
This is my first paint sprayer. It's easy to use, and I like that it's faster than hand painting. Paint goes on well. I need a lot of practice. I wipe the nozzle often, but it still seems to get clogged. Cleaning, being one who likes to keep tools like this super clean, is not too bad. The surfaces are such that dried paint comes off easily. But, with a toothpick, wash sponge, and a bucket of water, It takes me an hour to clean the unit inside and out. In the grand scheme of things, I like it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LeonW Awesome, but tricky
I'm hoping this review will help people looking at buying this spray gun for a diy project. my wife and I got a $900 quote to have doors painted. So we decided we would buy this product and paint them ourselves. The spray gun says it can handle any latex paints (thick paint). Well on our first try, that was not the case. In a lot of the bad reviews people mention the gun puts out a terrible texture. Buying this sprayer is only half the work. We found that Sherwin Williams sells probably THE best trim paint for sprayers. The Pro Classic trim paint mixed with some flotrol definitely works for this sprayer. This sprayer is not a one and done solution. Seems everyone thinks this is all you need for a pro finish. Our painter told us to use a sponge roller on the doors while the paint is still wet. The sprayer, combined with good paint and a roller to "back roll" or finish the doors, really gave us an amazing finish that family and friends can't believe. So make sure to get proper paint and thin it out. Also follow the paint application with a roller immediately afterwards. This will give you a great, smooth finish.

Used it for a stain project and a paint project. Both turned out wonderfully. Short learning curve. Clean up not difficult just time consuming if you want to do a thorough job.
