Customer Reviews

Optimus Power Painter Handheld Airless Paint Sprayer-DISCONTINUED is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 57.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible don't waist your money!! My husband and I have recently purchased this product to only find that the plastic tubing which connects to the sprayer blows air from paint makes a big mess and doesn't stay attached to equipment properly. For this price I would use wiser and smarter choice and eliminate the headache, mess and wasted dollar. I wish I could return it! That is my experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great for staining fences I have seen some of these Wagners got mediocre reviews before, so I was wary, but I am pleased for my purposes. I am using stain, not paint, so it is, by nature, thinner. I have followed the assembly and cleaning directions to the tee, and I have not had any problems. It does sputter as you are running out of paint, so it might be wise to use it carefully indoors. I am giving it a 4 because I wish its cup for holding stain/paint was larger....I have to fill it a bit too often for my liking. It does get easier to disassemble and reassemble after you've done it once (and I'm a girl). Perfect for outdoor staining.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get out of it what you put in. I have read a lot of these reviews and compared them to my personal experience with the product I have to say it does the job very well. You need to understand your not just grabbing this tool off the shelf and loading it up with paint and shooting. Preparation is just as important (actually more important) then actually painting. Hot water and soap makes for an easy clean up. The device comes apart in a very logical manner and goes back together the same way. The coverage is great and yes you will get a quick splatter when you reach the end of the tank. But guess what, take your finger off the trigger, get a brush and wipe it. Not the end of the world. It dries without any difference of the rest of the piece.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very troublesome and NOISY!! Bought a wagner power sprayer and it worked on one side of the house before the motor seized up. Returned it, and got another. Still very noisy! i used it a couple times to repaint 2 houses that are 1100 sq ft. It oversprays badly. i only recommend it for fences and thats it! Its so embarrassing to use cause it probably annoyed the neighbors with the sound it makes, it sounds like a tornado siren going off everytime you pull the trigger! Even tho i still have it in my garage i dont think i will ever be using it again. Im repainting my house again and this time im investing in a quieter one. Also this unit has wasted A LOT of paint from it leaking all over my hand and overspray. this is 3rd wagner sprayer i bought and all of these models are VERY NOISY & LEAKY! they clog up occasionally too! So much overspray that it actually got on my roof shingles and i wasnt even near the roof!. NEVER AGAIN! NOISY LEAKY OVERSPRAYS BADLY. *NOTE i am giving it 3 stars due to it painting 2 houses, but it was so troublesome and wasted so much paint and the noise it makes, ugh. I will never buy another one again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Piston Stuck due to poor instructions in the manual Following the cleaning instructions in the manual for acrylic paint will result in a seized piston, as this portion of the manual fails to mention anything about removing and cleaning this part. Paint will dry in it and "simply remove" is the advice... impossible advice, I might add. Once the piston is stuck, no amount of pulling and tugging at it will remove it. There is nothing "simple" about removing the stuck piston. I did a lot of googling to try to find a _real_ solution. Fixya says if this occurs "good luck with that". Most folks have sworn off the Wagner after this has happened, as there seems to be no way to fix it and the part is junk if it can't be unstuck. The replacement part is so expensive, one is more likely to replace the whole unit with another brand. Pulling and tugging did nothing but cramp the hands and cause frustration and some foul language. Someone mentioned WD-40. No go. Since there was nothing to lose, tried soaking in brake fluid. Nadda. Finally, after an entire day of fighting with the confounded thing tried boiling it in a pan of water. This worked! If your piston has stuck and you're ready to chuck the thing, you've got nothing to lose. Put it in a pan and boil the heck out of it! Took about 15-20 minutes on this one. Give it a go and pass on the info. So many frustrated folks from this being told it's "operator error" when the error is in fact in the omission of the need to clean it in that part of the manual. Whomever wrote that thing should have to try to pry every single piston that's ever stuck on any customer's paint gun by hand and not be allowed to quit until they've fixed them all or admit they messed up!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor consumer product! Sprayed fairly well at first. Before I completed my first project it began leaking. I checked everything over to make sure nothing had became loose or needed adjustment. It continued to leak. I stopped and "thoroughly" cleaned the unit as per instructions. Did not help. I have disassemled and cleaned and recleaned numerous times but everytime I try to use it it makes a mess and leaks all over. It was taking more time to clean the sprayer and clean up the mess than it would to just paint manually with a brush. By the time I decided this product was worthless the warranty had run out. My loss and yours. Will not buy another or recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hard at first, then great to use Like many others, I had problems at first using the spayer. It worked fine the first day, then the spray started clumping up and spitting out the second day (I used the backpack). After reading the directions agian, very carefully, I found some things I missed: 1. clean everything, and take the piston out and clean it too 2. put oil in just like it says 3. Keep the breather hole clear - clean it with a pin 4. Use short bursts of power -- about 3 seconds and then stop. Then three seconds again and so on. that stops the engine from overheating, the stops the piston seizeing. After I figured that out, it worked GREAT.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Practice Before You Use For The First Time I have been painting since I was a teenager! Latex paint needs to be thinned and also make sure you don't jerk the sprayer when paint is low in the cannister to suck up air. You will get globs spraying out. Keep a 2inch soft brush in your back pocket to smooth out the globs as soon as they stick. Refill it when 3/4 down. Hold the at a foot from the surface and perpendicular. Start with a even motion and press the trigger while it is moving. Start with the lowest flow rate that gives even coverage. Make the first pass and then come back for a second pass after the first coat forms a skin. I avoid using the tubing to suck paint off a gallon can. I would rather refill the cannister several times with the right diluted latex paint. After use make sure it is completely disassembled and cleaned good to get rid of all dried paint. Use shop air to dry the nozzles and then lubricate before reassembling.
