Worst I've owned. Leaves ripples or applies heavy
Customer review from logo
Bought this today to speed up a small paint job. The pump cause heavy rippling in the applied paint. Needed to back roll and apply a second coat. For all the time invested I was better of cutting in and rolling. Tip guard gets covered in excessive paint causing drips.

Hello, Thank you for providing your feedback on the TrueCoat VSP handheld airless paint sprayer. We're sorry to hear about your initial experience. It's possible that your application speed was a bit too fast so slowing down a bit should help even out the finish. Also, make sure to dial-in the variable speed on the sprayer to properly atomize the coating you're spraying. If you're still experiencing issues, please call our Tech Support Team M-F at 844-241-9498 between 7:30 am-5:30 pm CST so we can gather more information. - JW

Excellent Spray Gun
Customer review from logo
Am new to woodworking and originally bought this gun to paint a desk that I made for my wife. I was trying to paint the pieces individually prior to assembly and was having a hard time getting an even coat when spraying down on boards on the floor. So I assembled the furniture and sprayed post assembly (so the spraying wasn't down) and the gun worked great. Nice even application of the paint. I then used this product to re-stain my fence. The gun worked even better for the fence in terms of a beautiful even application. Two watch-outs for a big project like this: 1. The 42 ounce reservoir is very small for a large project as you would ideally want a higher capacity sprayer (I used it as was what I had), and 2. You will only get two to three re- fills out of the Flex Liner bags before needing to replace them. After a couple of re-fills, the air tight seal isn't airtight enough and then you can only use the gun upside down (which wasn't that big of a deal on a fence project). Just know you will need to keep a good supply of Flex Liner bags on hand and replace them every couple of re-fills. I have included three photos here . . . one of the desk after painting, one of the fence pre-staining, and once of the fence post-staining. Enjoy.

Customer review from logo
I recently remodeled my basement bathroom...adding a new tiled shower and painting existing cabinetry. As I had long contemplated purchase of an airless, I discovered the hand-held airless units offered by Graco and purchased one in May. This was my first airless...so thoroughly read/followed the mfr. instructions. Practiced on some finish plywood and then shot my cabinets with a name-brand latex acrylic paint. Strained the paint and adjusted the pressure to replicate a nice even spray. Paint laid down really nice. Experienced a few clogs, but the unclog feature worked well and I made a few adjustments to ensure a clog-free shoot. I was very pleased with the paint spraying capability of the Graco unit. Being my first airless on a DIY project, I learned quickly that cleaning the machine "thoroughly" is very important to next day's use ! Can't overstress importance of doing good job cleaning and use of correct cleaning liquids to clear the internal parts. My only suggested improvement to Graco would be to provide this 360 series with 6'-0" length of plug-in cord. I grew up where taught to tie a knot in extension cord at the plug connection to keep the machine from losing power while in use. As is...having such a short cord plug off the gun forces one to potentially drag an awkward cord connection through freshly laid paid when hovering the gun above the surface/item being painted. Otherwise am very pleased with my purchase of the Graco 360 VSP gun and looking forward to further use this fall/winter DIY remodel project of my kitchen ! Thanks Graco!

Hope you like orange peel & spatter :(
The whole reason I bought this gun was to eliminate brush marks when painting picture frames with latex... Went & bought the most expensive Sherwin Williams latex paint they make - nothing but splatters, chatters & orange peel.. Tried a different paint and even worse results. This time a stream of paint would shoot out making my door look like a dang "Pollock" painting - & yes i throughly strained my paint both times.. Nothing but issues every time i've tried to use this gun, & now it's past the time to return it :( Only when you put water in to clean it does it spray like a champ.. So disappointed with this, & now my frames look worse than brushing...

Professional handyman here, bought this product not even a year ago. Used it maybe 3 or 4 times and it stop working. Before all the stupid comments start. I would clean the gun before putting it away. Saw issues on my first try and should of turn it in. That's my fault, but had high hopes for it. You are better of buying the high pressure one paint sprayer. Gun cost me $300 plus and I'm not going to spend another $200 to replace the motor.

Picked this up on a whim for a bathroom project...
Picked this up on a whim for a bathroom project I had to complete. A sewer line was replaced and the plumber's had to demo the bathroom wall.I do drywalling and painting, but did not want to break out my bigger spray rig. I also did not want to brush and roll.This little item came in handy...

Works Great!
Customer review from logo
Once you get the feel for it , it works great. PaintEd 2 doors and 120 feet of molding in 20 minutes. Painted a 4 drawer dresser in about 30. I wish you could use more types of tips in it.

Would give it back if possible
Customer review from logo
We bought this product as we were redoing the kitchen. It was ok on the stipple ceiling as you could not tell when it would shoot out a little stream of paint. On the flat ceiling and walls you could tell when it did. It did not matter on which tip or spray pattern we tried, itwould work perfectly fine for a few spray pattern and then send it a stream of paint. We ended up rolling the ceiling and walls! Not happy with this product. My husband would give it back if possible!
