Rated 5 out of 5Â by Arturo Keep it clean and there will be no problem
First time I used a paint sprayer and it worked very well without any problem, just a detail that the container is small and refills are constant, a sign that everything is working properly, you have to use a damp cloth to keep clean the nozzle and not to let the container to empty. I Use 20 liters outdoors, 12 liters indoors with just one atomizer valve change and nozzle cleaning, very impressed with the speed and the result, congratulations to the designers of this tool.

7 yrs. ago my wife and I took 26 hrs. to stain our pool fence inside and outside using 10 gal. Behr Weather Proofing Solid stain (Natural Cedar 105) a decking pump sprayer, "Back" brushing, and touching up uneven coated boards, and making a mess with streams of stain inadvertently coming off the glopped up tip of the pump sprayer. It was aggravating, back breaking work, but we were happy with the results. The pressure treated wood held the stain well for the last 7 yrs. and this year it was time to re-stain it. We dreaded the thought of spending an entire Memorial 3 day weekend staining the fence and not enjoying our pool w/family. Asked our kids to help, but they remembered how long it took and the agony and all made other Holiday Weekend Plans.
I bought this Wagner Power Painter, and my wife and I applied 13 gal. of Behr Weather Proofing Stain inside and out in 10 -11 hours. Very little "Back Brushing". No stray streams of stain, and that time includes cleaning the Power Painter with Hot, Soapy water back to like new condition. The results are better than when we stained the raw wood. (Pressure washed the fence 2 days prior and let it dry)
The fence looks great. And the Wagner Power Painter is very well made and if cleaned by soaking all disassembled parts in a bucket of Hot, Dawn Soap water and then following instruction manual directions with the brushes provided it gets cleaned back to like new condition. "I DO NOT RECOMMEND THE LAZY WAY OF JUST RUNNING A FEW SPRAYER CUPFULS OF SOAPY WATER THROUGH IT. I was going to borrow my Brother in-Laws, but he cleaned it that way and it was non-functioning. I won't loan mine out, I plan to have it for years and lots of projects.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Rattatouile Works great , just read and follow instructions
This sprayer works great, no problems. Read and follow instructions which are simple and clear to the point. Clean up not bad I used 3 buckets - one to clean in, one to drop parts in after clean in clean water, and a soapy bucket for refill of soapy clean water. Painting is messy, with that said, overspray does happen, just tape more to avoid this issue. Make sure to refill paint cup because if paint run low the paint will then come out in globs otherwise it comes out in powerful even spray leaving smooth texture on walls, no brush strokes. Have empty box for restarts to make sure paint is coming out evenly. Saves time and strain on body.
Even paints ceilings very well !!! Very impressed. Would recommend to others to buy the 6.6 gph ez tilt sprayer. Ez tilt allows to spray ceilings. This sprayer deserves high ratings.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BeeBop works great if you understand it
I have worked as a contractor for years. looking for the small job solution, this worked great at first, but quickly displayed some issues related by negative posts here. It's simple though....clean it. I found the culprit. There is a pinhole in the lid which allows air into the container while spraying, it plugs, the subsequent vacuum formed in the container causes the issues some people have posted. simply keep a needle available to clear this hole, and she's back to a small miracle painter.
The lack of over spray is great. The lack of a paint covered hose is great. The versatility is great. Oh... use quality paint, always helps.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by theotherguy Exceeded expectations
I had a project to paint my garage and purchased the POWER PAINTER PLUS 6.6 GPH WITH EZ TILT TECHNOLOGY not knowing what to expect since I've heard both good and bad with handheld sprayers. I must say I was quite impressed with the job it did. I sprayed latex paint and although it says it does not need thinning I went and thinned each gallon used with a cup of water and added a cup of Floetrol. I set the spray dial to just past the halfway mark and it sprayed like a champ. The only time the sprayer spit was when it did get low on paint, even in a tilt position and this was expected. I had very few runs and if I did it was due to me being to close to the work. The sprayer puts the paint right where you need it and found I had to use my spray shield less than I thought. My only complaint was cleanup did take a while, but hey you need to clean it properly in order for it to work the next time.
