Flexio 570 Sprayer
I found the Flexio 570 HVLP paint sprayer to be sloppy. When completing a spray, the unit dribbles while 'winding down'. I constantly had to wipe the front of the sprayer and wound up wearing more paint than I should have. This unit makes me miss the older units. I also found it difficult to clean as the dribbling created a puddle inside the unit that eventually drained back into the fan unit. Poor design. Poor performance. Did it work? Yes. Would I buy it again? Probably not.

My first power painter. Excited to try it I took it to the shed with some scrap wood. I got called away while spraying and forgot about the painter until months later when the weather warmed up. I was prepared to buy a new one since this was out with paint in it during sub-zero temps in an unheated space. But I decided to try. I removed and cleaned the spray tip, but some warm water in it and fired it up. It sprayed like normal! Now I'm using it all the time without any problems. Thank you for a product that can handle my abuse.

Gets the Job done!
I was planning to paint our basement poured foundation. I started with a 1/2" nape roller and found it was not covering well or getting into the imperfections. Not what I expected. I went to Home Depot with the thought of getting an airless sprayer to use with the Behr concrete paint, but did not wish to spend a whole lot of money. I purchased the FLEXiO 570. Having used compressor driven sprayers in the past, painting cars, I was ready to try this tool out. It took me about 5 minutes to sort out the 570's operation. A few minor adjustments and two gallons of paint later the job was done. I was quite pleased how it worked and the results.
I think Wagner should include a small flexible brush to facilitate cleaning, I used an old toothbrush. Also a spare nozzle seal would be a good idea

Product has good reviews, wonder if I just bought a bad one?
I purchased the Wagner 570, every time I stopped spraying, paint continued to come out of the nozzle. While spraying I was happy with it, but when I had to move to the next spot. I had paint coming out of the nozzle at an alarming rate. I lost probably 2 quarts of the 2 gallons of paint that I purchased. I finished the job, but it was messy and very disappointing. I am going to take it back to Home Depot, and try another one because I am hoping i can continued to use it on my next job....jt

We got this to paint our fence outside. After about a 1/4 of the way through, it started leaking. I've worked with many sprayers and liked this one until it started leaking. I took it apart and cleaned it properly and it didn't help at all.
I am very disappointed.

a huge surprise
1st let me qualify. former contractor who has used real sprayers
also I have had several of the older wagner $100 sprayers.
we are just getting to the painting phase of a 2200 sq ft addition on our home. I had fully intended on rolling but dragged the older wagner out just to see well it did its usual leak all over the place and got as much paint on the floor as it did the wall almost. the older ones are best used for small outdoor projects (fences).
After watching a friend who we are paying to help us take 4 hours to prime a very large closet (24 x 3) with a roller and cut in the larger room, my wife said this 570 had great reviews.. I begrudgingly bought it after stating several times "but its a wagner" as I point to the $300 and up graco's and say thats the right way to do it..
I was pleasantly surprised when I used it its much quieter than the old ones put on more paint and far less splatter than the old ones. it acts very much like a "graco" pro level sprayer. the same friend sprayed both the ceiling and all the walls of a 28 x 24 in like 3 hours.
for thoseof you who have used the older wagners you really have to give the new one a try..
very easy to clean I think, but we warned the nozzle seal is easy to lose and it wont function without it.
Wagner if you are paying attention, you send a 2nd nozzle you really should send a spare seal as well.
