Rated 4 out of 5Â by Wiggy Ease of Use
I have never used a spray gun before . Only watched my husband and used a paintbrush for all my jobs. I hand paint furniture and for some projects I don't want to have to use a brush. I got tired of waiting for my husband to finish his projects and decided to read the manual and try it myself. I have to say it was very easy to set up and very easy to clean. I did lose an atomizer value already because they are so small. lol Looks like I will be hitting up the parts department. Overall I very satisfied.

I had 7 fence panels to stain both sides of before the contractor installation. Used the remote setup. There was no way to know if the second tip included in the box was the "round tip" or the "stain tip" and after checking at the store, it appeared to be a stain tip. Used it, but I'm pretty sure it was not the stain tip. Got globs of splatter after stain was dragged down the air supply line, even when the knob was turned as far as possible to the Decrease side. Clean up was not the 10 minutes advertised, but wasn't an ordeal either.
Splatters were easy to deal with using a damp rag, so I'm still happy I got this sprayer. Seven 6' x 6' panels, both sides, about 6 hours total time. My fence looks great!
To Wagner folks: Please include a picture of how to get all this stuff back in the storage case and label the included tips so we know we are using the right tool for the job.

On my job I have had to use commercial paint sprayers. The paint had to be thinned out to the exact requirement. I wanted to paint using latex paint at home which is much thicker. I bought the power painter plus as a shot in the dark. I was thinking it might make this project a lot easier. Surely it really can't be that good. Boy was I surprised, It sprayed beautifully. No thinning needed. Of course it was a good quality paint. But the results were smooth even coverage.

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.
