I used wagner in the early 90s and professionals even commented on my interior paint. I thought the thing painted so well that you could paint a car, so I preped a hood and it painted as well as any air gun. Now everything may be chinese junk.

Im a contractor.Those are ok for little jobs like trim base bords ect.Anything bigger than a door ,pretty much worthless.We use two 2hp Hvlp sprayers for paint and Drywall.

have one works great you will have to test with the paint as to thinning it straight out of the can is way to thick. also have a Wagner and see no difference in the job they do. paint thickness is VERY crucial to thick globs to thin runs

Mike,

I bought a Wagner brand airless sprayer at Home Depot some years back. I tried to use it to paint my house. What a mess! The coverage was was completely erratic. It would spit out gobs of paint, then very little paint, then no paint. I had to brush out the mess it was making on the siding and then painted the house with brushes.

I threw that piece of junk away and never looked back.

Maybe the technology is better today than it was back then.

They all probably work about the same. I bought a Wagner years ago and was pretty well satisfied with it. Just don't forget to CLEAN it well right when you get done with it and put oil on it where the instructions tell you to. I didn't, and it rusted.

Years ago as a General contractor I had a couple special jobs using lattice sections as inside decor . Both customers wanted their jobs done in white . So I went to Sherwin-Williams & bought their top of the line Wagner sprayer . Man oh man , what a mess that thing made . I even had the paint store manager come to see if it was me or the sprayer . Ended up , we cleaned up the mess first , then the gun & accessories , he took it with him & sent it back to Wagner . I ended up using my autobody paint gun to finish up the jobs . I had paint over spray & splatters everywhere . My advice , use a paint brush & roller . I wish I would've, to save wasting time & materials . God bless

At Harbor Fright you get what you pay for.
It is still better to buy a Wagner - even if it too is made in China. At least the American company will hold the manufacturer to minimum standards and you will have a better tool.

Mike, years ago before the Navy, I was a drywall contractor. I did framing and other trades, but most of my money came from drywalling. I had one I got used. As long as the check valve was well cleaned, it worked fine. The only problem I ever had was paint drying in the check valve, which was merely a ball and spring. I won't lie. Even running the rig thru at the end of priming each job, wasn't enough to keep paint out of the check valve, however.
