Makes roof coating application VERY EASY!!!
I have a 2800 sq ft flat rolled asphalt roof. The home was built in 1959, and has almost no insulation, no attic acess (there IS no attic). House gets over 80F in the Florida heat. AC is brand new 7 ton unit, and it just can’t hack it. Decided to coat the entire roof with Lanco White Seal Plus (btw, that product is pure magic- it instantly lowered the indoor temps of the house 15F, and the roof went from 170F surface temp to 115F- the stuff is incredible). I spent 4 hours with a regular nap roller with a 6’ pole. It works, but slowly. LOTS of trips back and forth bucket to work area, every 30” or so. Well this little Wagner PERFORMS. Based on using just a roller yesterday, the Side Kick enabled me to work more efficiently by multiple orders of magnitude. I wasnt sure if it would pump the thick elastomeric coating, but by God it does, and well. Ignore the bad reviews. This thing is Heaven sent!!!

    Painted the interior walls of a 40x60 pole barn with 14' high walls. The 1st unit quick working after 6 gallons of primer, took it back for exchange, get home second unit was missing parts. After another round trip to the Depot got a third unit that worked good for the next 14 gallons of primer. The problem was that when I was putting on the top coat the button quit working to shut paint flow off to roller. I have to use the on off rocker switch on the unit. Not easy to do when on scaffolding. When these thing work they are great, but 3 units and the last one is stuck on is not acceptable. Not sure if I will return last unit or throw away since job is done.

      If you ate painting a large area, maybe a whole house this is a good tool. The clean up is time consuming. I think you waste some paint too. But we were painting our entire house and it worked well for us.

      I purchased this because the sprayer was a messy paint fountain... well, the one I got came with a leak... you can see the results in the picture attached... messed up all my paint job. It sprayed paint all over the walls and the ceiling... plus, it made a huge pool of paint on the floor...

      It sounds like the clip may have broken that holds the roller on, but you don't explain where the leak is. Technical support is available 6 days a week at 800-328-8251. WagnerSprayTech

      Works Better Than Expected!
      I just used this roller system to paint a small 500sq ft one-bedroom apartment. The apartment is above a detached garage and features vaulted ceilings (yes, the ceiling is tapered from 10ft to 13ft). With 5 doorways and some high walls, I spent more time doing the cut-in (and significantly more with masking) than painting the walls. I didn't particularly care that I lost about a quart of paint (out of 5 gallons). It's a great system. Not needing to bend over and roll more paint, make sure it's even, and try not to drip back to the wall, is worth this truly inexpensive tool. The only downside is that it take much longer to clean up than it does to set up; but isn't that always the case? If you treat is properly and clean it well (I run 5 gallons of soapy water, then 5 gallons of clean water through), then it will last! That clean up process takes about 30 minutes, but I do it unattended by using 5 gallon buckets; leaving me time to clean my brushes clean up trash and be confident that my Sidekick is going to be clean.

        Really good painter
        Easy to use and I used it to paint my new stucco outside on my garage even though it says interior only.

        A real time saver!!! SideKick will be used for every painting project I do from now on....
        Great product - simple but very useful concept! A real time saver! I used the SMART SideKick Roller to paint the bedroom and bathroom at my sister's house. She did all the cutting in and taping while I used the roller. We both loved how much faster the job went b/c I did not have to keep loading the roller in the tray. One wall that was about 400 square feet took only about 10 minutes to roll. I am def going to use this for many projects in the future and will def do more in the near future b/c I can see how much faster the projects go. Setup and cleanup was super easy. Especially clean up since I was able to let it run and clean itself with soapy water while I cleaned up the rest of rooms. I would have liked to have had an extension pole with the button at the end so I could load the roller when working on high areas, but I was able to attach a standard extension and it worked just fine. If there was an improvement I would like to see it would be to have the device attach more to the paint can so that as I move around I can use the paint can handle to move the paint can while the SideKick was still attached. The clasp that holds the can in place is great but I would like to see it lock in a little more. Since I had everything on a drop cloth I was able to just pull the cloth around and not have to worry about it. Thanks Wagner! Marcus Seiler - DIY-er

          Have a big rolling job? You just found the solution...
          I just finished a full basement and needed to cover some VERY long stretches of 9' walls with 2 different colors of paint #depending on the room#. The sidekick was easy to set up; and once I got the hang of turning on the pump/rolling "too much" paint onto an area/turning it off/and finally rolling through the excess to cover the adjoining areas, I was off to the races... This little baby made quick work of a massive family room, a playroom, bedroom and bathroom. Clean-up was a snap, too, and allowed me to switch heads & colors and keep rolling vs. having to wait overnight for everything to dry out, etc. Word of advice: spend the $ on extra roller covers. It's tempting to wash out the cover and wait for it to dry but I found it easier to wring all of the paint out of the cover and then toss it and start the next day fresh.
