Read the product description before you buy it. Works perfectly as intended.
Reviews on here are from people that don't understand what the product is actually for. If you read the description, it's intended for stains and lacquers (as well as some thinned paints), and it works very well for this purpose. It's not intended for thicker paints like Behr Marquis. For those, you'll need a higher power HVLP sprayer. Honestly people just use your brain and look before you buy. I appreciate that Wagner takes the time to respond to all reviews. You guys make a great product, keep it up!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My first project with the ControlStainer350 was to paint a display case to be use on my outside covered deck. I painted the inside of the case with solid color latex stain (green) and finished the outside of the case with a solid color oil stain (red). After initial setup and determining what flow I needed and what width, it worked like a charm. Had very little issue with runs, overall had great coverage. I have done a couple of these cases in the past with brush and roller, needless to say I will never go back. I found all the control features to be very simple to operate and adjust to your desired specs. The cleanup was super easy and not as time consuming as I thought it would be. After finishing the outside of the case I had stain left over so I used it on part of my catwalk deck that runs down the side of my house. It worked great cant wait till next spring to start on all of my decking.

Great review and photos of your project! Thanks for sharing.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used it to stain my back fence and it made me feel like a pro. My neighbor was impressed how fast it went and how easy it was to get a great looking stained fence. I'll be doing many more projects with it and my neighbor may be getting one soon.
I purchased this prior to staining my deck with solid color stain. I was apprehensive about the purchase but found the sprayer to be easy to use, easy to clean, and a huge time saver especially on the railing. Worth every penny
I bought this sprayer for its small compact size and ease of use on small projects. I build planter boxes and use about an 1/8 of a gallon per box. On the first 6 boxes, cleaning after each box, everything works well.
But, now I used it on four (4) large planter boxes 54" x 27", with vertical legs of 30". I did all 4 boxes at the same time. It took about 1hr of continual use. I was switching from vertical to horizontal continually. I noticed the Jets of air coming out getting hotter and hotter, but I can't stop...gotta keep going. After 45 min of spraying and switching horizontal to vertical, the setting was on fine spray and no.1 volume; the gun decided to spray wide with lots of volume. I check the sprayer and it narrow on 1, but the sprayer is doing wide on like 4. Lots of stain is going everywhere... Now my boxes have more stain in areas they don't need it and they look like dirt!!
The gun gets hot and decides it will spray whatever the, you know what, it wants to spray after 45min of continual use...
I will not recommend this sprayer for small projects that require stain on planter boxes. My $2,000 order of boxes look like a kid did them, because the sprayer decided to do its own thing...

I purchased this product after watching my wife waste a day of her life painting lattice and only get about 1/8 of the way done! This product is VERY easy to setup and use. Spray is consistent and easy to control. Easy to clean and take apart also. I will use this sprayer on every outside job I have from now on. Best $100 I have ever spent!!

My first time with a paint sprayer. Worked well to stain a large deck. Took a while to get the flow and spray control settings where they needed to be. Mostly due to my learning curve. Used an oil stain by Cabot and probably used less stain with the sprayer than conventional roller or brush. At first had flow control too heavy and went over the sprayed area with a roller after spraying. Got the flow adjusted lower and eliminated this step. Bypassed the recommendation to sand the deck before staining so some areas turned out darker than others. Two thirds done and rain kicked in so will have to complete after thigs dry out. First cleaning was a pain but decided to put mineral spirits in the bottle and run it through the sprayer. Worked great and cut the cleanup time to just a few minutes. Will be using the sprayer again on the upper deck.
