My first project was to paint 2 sets of outdoor tables and chairs. 2 tables. 11 chairs. The sprayer was easy to use and worked as well as I could have expected. I am a direction reader and since I was using an oil based black paint I did not want to make any mistakes. So I read the directions. Carefully. Several times. They were pretty easy to understand. The cleanup went easier than I thought it would and now I have to outdoor dining sets that look great. Ready for my next project.

After reading all of the reviews and YouTube videos.. I decided to give this sprayer a try.. I am so glad I did. This is a great spray gun and it works just like in the videos. I just stain my fence ( 1200 square ft) inside and outside , in about 3 hrs. Including looking for an extension and taking breaks. My girlfriend loves the way the fence looks and plus I save $580 dollars by doing it myself. Thanks Wagner for a great spray gun that is very easy to use and one that does the very well

I used to be a car painter, so it is hard to break some motion habits when using this sprayer. I was just spraying overhead joist in my basement with primer, so was not worried about the quality of the spray.
The Good-It sprayed up and down with a nice stream and laid out very nice coat.
The Bad- This may be because I was using a heavy primer, the incline I was spraying, or that I did not have the adjustment rights, but every once in a while, the nozzle would clog and start spitting instead of a steady stream.
This was not a deal breaker. To rent a professional sprayer was $50. This was $100 more and I own something to spray multiple projects. Would only use for large projects, as others had said, cleanup is a little time consuming.

Easy to assemble. The small spray - finisher works fine. Got all the trims done with great finish.
The bigger spray was not working. Sputtered and made a mess. Then totally clogged. Cleaned it - tried adjusting spray and paint settings. Checked all assembly making sure the suction is well fitted. Same results. Paint won't come out properly. Will have to return to Home Depot and get a replacement. Need the bigger spray for walls and doors.
Cleaning time is 30mins +

After researching paint sprayers for a year, I finally took the plunged and purchaed the Flexio 590. The bigger sprayer that comes in this set, basically splurted and threw up paint. I attempted to use the sprayer twice, hoping it was just user error but to no avail, it didn't work. After using the basic hand roller for my paint jobs, I decided to see if the smaller sprayer would work and to my surpise it did. I love it! I'm basically repainting every room in our house. It has saved me so much time, less of a mess, and a smoother finish.
While the product is still under warranty and I purchased an additional warranty, I haven't taken the larger of the two back to the store.

I can't tell you how bad I wanted this to work out. I am painting 1500 ft.² of new finished basement. I have never used a sprayer before. Finally made the plunge based on price and reviews. Mine was very loud which makes me think there was something wrong with the unit as I've seen them online being used and they seem very quiet.just sprayed small clumps of paint no more than a 3 inch spray radius much less than it was supposed to at the setting I had it on. Spent a full day playing with this thing assuming that I was doing something wrong, I wasn't. Same result no matter what setting I had it on and I tried every which way. I wasted a day and now I have to take it back , what are disaster.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ToddB HVLP is a polarizing topic – love it or hate it
I have two sprayers from Wagner, this and their Flexio 590, which is model 0518080. To be honest I find HVLP not as cut and dry as I had hoped. If you read reviews on either of these you will find that most people either love them or hate them. Few are in between. For me, every time I think I’m going to use this sprayer I get turned off by a number of factors and inevitably paint by hand. I build furniture as a hobby and do a lot of hand finish work, most with varnish and urethane. I often dream of being able to quickly spray a coat, especially into the corners and hard to reach places, but inevitably use a foam brush.
- Paint waste
- Setup and cleanup
- Multiple coats means multiple cleanups between
When weighing those factors, it’s almost always quicker for me to just do it by hand. I realize that is a personal opinion and that you can’t always get the same results as a sprayer with a brush. I have used both systems on a number of occasions, however, but I’m admittedly not particularly skilled in their use. I’ve had both success stories and abandoned attempts. In fact, I’ve had this sprayer for three years now and never wrote the review because I kept wanting “another chance to use it”, over and over. I guess what I’m saying is that I think for best results you need to either use this frequently to get good at it or at least have a large project on which you can ramp up. Each situation will be different, as will each finish you’re spraying.
Quality-wise, I have no complaints. It’s a nice sprayer. It’s not loud and the two cups makes it much more versatile than just one large cup (think about waste at the bottom of a large reservoir when you only need a little paint). Having the motor in the head, it’s convenient, versus having a separate blower.
