Great Product I have had a lot of luck and would recommend this product to anyone. It is not the best for small projects as it does take 30-45 minutes to clean. I just painted my shed with it. The shed is 16x8 and would have taken about 4-6 hours to paint with a brush. I had two coats done cumalatively in under 45 minutes. I tried using it to put on a light stain but I have had better luck with dark colors. I have mastered clean up. It still takes a long time, but I am not there for most of it. After I dump the paint from the hopper, I wash the hopper out with a garden hose. I then put the hopper on a slight angle so as water spills out it does not land on the electric motor. I place the machine on spray. I remove the tip and put an elastic or wire tie around the gun's trigger. I fill the hopper with water and turn the machine on. I put a garden hose in the hopper and turn it on with just enough force so that as the gun is spraying, the hose is replacing the water. I walk away for about 20 minutes. When I come back, the water coming out of the gun is totally clean. I then put the machine on prime and put the tube on the ground again walking away for 20 minutes. When I come back I put it on spray again for 5 minutes just to be safe. I wash the nozzle to the gun in the kichen sink. This process takes about 45 minutes but you are only cleaning the machine for about 10. ALWAYS STORE THE UNIT INSIDE AS FREEZING WILL RUIN IT. September 10, 2012
Paint crew I bought my paint crew so long ago, it was sold without a top cover! (it's about 10 years old, or older now,) I can pour more than 2 gallons into it, (I don't!) and I can spray Indoor, or out, as for the complaint that the hose broke, I am not sure why, mine is so stiff, I drag my crew sprayer in the grass, on the carpet, by the hose all day long, and I have for over 10 years now, which is why I am on here to began with, trying to find thew housing for the TIP, (I stepped on it and broke it.) so I can put it into service once again! You got to clean them good when your finished, and take care of them when your done, like any good tool, YOU HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF THEM! (And they will take care of you, if you do!) February 2, 2014
Good unit, a few minor irritations I bought the unit at Home Depot, I have used it on 2 houses in all and was able to spray my own house with primer. I cleaned it thoroughly, oiled it per the manual and let the primer dry over night. This morning I went out and began spraying the paint and after about 5 minutes it began to leak at the guard assembly around the reversible spray nozzle. I disassembled it and found it had cracked apart and was spewing paint. I am told I look very good in peach, just not in such a thick coat. I am currently ordering a new guard and cleaning the machine to store it until it arrives. Home depot does not carry these anymore because they didn't sell. No one in my area sells them or has parts. I live in Fort Pierce Florida so there are plenty of paint places but no one carries Wagner. It seems the house will not be painted for Thanksgiving but I am sure once the new tip arrives after Christmas probly lol I'll be able to complete my house.. I would recommend it to others but make sure the parts are available locally, November 26, 2013
Really pumps out the paint! More than paid for itself in the first usage in the value of my time. I painted a 150 foot cedar fence with opaque stain, both sides, in one day. The wood really soaked up the stain. I would have been a week or more with rollers and brushes. Am now staining my huge deck. Again the wood is really sucking up the stain. I agree with other reviewers about the clean up time. But you simply have to do this. As far as clogging goes, I have started diluting one gallon of stain with a half a cup of water. Seems to make the stain flow better without hurting the coverage. (The can says do not dilute but do it anyway if the paint or stain is thick.) Although replacement parts are not so common in retail stores, they are plentiful on the internet at what I consider reasonable prices. You just have to look ahead. I docked the product one star only because of the cleaning time and process. September 27, 2013
Quality??? When I was getting ready to paint my house and was looking for a sprayer, I was told not to buy a Wagner. But I didnt listen and bought the Paint Crew Spayer that was on sale at a great price. I did what I had to do with the directions and put it to work spraying a premium out door acrylic paint. It worked perfect!!!... for a couple minutes anyway until the gun lost pressure. I turned around to find out what is going on and the rubber hose and the conection end had separated. Paint was shooting out on the house and front porch. I was very disgusted and disapointed in the quality of the workmanship. And what hurts more is that I bought this two years ago and finally pulled it out of the box for the first time today, so I cant take it back to the store. August 27, 2013
time saver what use to take me three days to paint by hand,took me four hours with my wagner paint crew. February 15, 2013
I recommend but make sure to fully clean each time parts seem hard to find. none on this web site I recommend but make sure to fully clean each time I recommend but make sure to fully clean each time February 11, 2013
easy This Paint crew paint sprayer is easy to setup after carefully following the instructions, knocks your painting time by more than half. Clean up takes longer than setting the machine up. January 28, 2013

I was using the paint crew after a long term storage. At first it worked as it should. The pump would build pressure and then shut off until the trigger was pulled. Over the course of spraying less than a gallon of paint (bare wood primer sealer)the pump would no longer build pressure enough to shut off or spray properly (low pressure). This unit has sprayed less than 5 gallons of paint since new. It this an outlet valve issue or something else?

Answer: 
My outlet valve was not holding pressure in the paint hose and not enough pressure was available to spray paint. The problem was the outlet valve. I removed the disk at the interior end of the outlet valve by prying it up through the slot on the side of the valve with an awl (ice-pick). Underneath the disk was a spring and a valve seat. The valve seat had a cut O-ring on it and that was why it was not holding pressure. I went to Lowes and bought a box of ten #60 O-rings for $2.50, replaced that O-ring, and it works fine now when I test it with water. I'll paint with it this weekend to see if it works with paint and for how long. I've owned this painter for eight years, but have only used it three times. I think I have pumped nine 5 gallon buckets of paint through it in its lifetime. I'll have to see how long it lasts this time. At least I have 9 spare O-rings to fix it.

Answer: 
While spraying make sure that you are doing an arm's length pass and letting go of the trigger. If you are holding down the trigger continuously you are never allowing your sprayer to build up pressure. If you are still having problems take out your outlet valve and clean it really well in warm soapy water. There is a small disc on the bottom of the outlet valve that you need to remove and clean the o-ring and spring behind the disc. Once you have removed the disc inspect and oil the spring and o-rings and put it back together. if you continue to have problems you may need to replace your outlet valve.
You will also want to check with the manufacture of the paint you are spraying to see what they recommend for a tip size when using an airless sprayer. The maximum tip size that sprayer can support is a .015. If the manufacture of the paint recommends a tip size larger than a .015 it will wear your valve prematurely.

Losing power

I've painted several houses with the "crew" and love the sprayer but towards the end of the second house the sprayer would lose power and not give a good coverage. Would this indicate seals or something needing to be replaced?

Answer: 
It sounds like your outlet valve may be beginning to wear. You can take your outlet valve out and clean it really well in warm soapy water. There is a small disc on the bottom of the valve. You want to check the o-ring on the disc to make sure that it is not damaged. There is also a small o-ring and spring behind the disc that you are going to want to inspect and clean. To remove the disc take a small screw driver and pop the disc off. Once you have the disc off clean and inspect the o-ring and spring, oil, and reassemble. Once you have cleaned the outlet valve put your sprayer back together and test it to see if it will build up pressure. if you continue to experience problems with the sprayer not building pressure you will need to replace the outlet valve.

I was reading the other post on losing pressure with the Paint Crew. I took the outlet valve out and and checked the o-ring and removed the disc on the bottom to clean it. When I flipped the disc over I noticed the edges around the hole in the middle were extremely worn, it looked like someone took a Dremel tool to it and carved it all up. Also the inner o-ring and plastic cap for the spring is also eaten away. I just bought the sprayer last week and was able to get my house 3/4 of the way painted before this happened. Should it wear out this fast or is this an aberration?

The metal used in this machine is not of the best quality and are arguably made to wear out. Check your receipt if you still have it and the warranty should replace it.

Answer: 
The valve will wear in about 30-50 gallons depending on the type of paint you are using. If you are using a paint that requires a larger tip size than what the sprayer can support the valves will wear faster. The maximum tip size the sprayer can support is .015.

Please do not recommend visiting my local retail or service center these places do not deal with the so called low cost sprayers for home use. I love this machine; I even have two of them. Cleaning and proper use is very important but unfortunately pieces do wear out.

My Paint crew came supplied with two tips, a 413 and a 515. As a novice I have no idea which tip to use with which spray material. The product manual does not make any suggestion as to which tip to use for latex paint and whcih tip to use for thinner materials like waterborne stains and finishes for woodworking. Is there a user chart which would at least give some starting point for this topic?

Answer: 
If you are outside and lots of room to spray at will... use wider spray pattern515. The lower numbers spary less and narrower pattern if you need that. Like narrow pickets and wide gaps. If not that means more 'strokes'. Maybe doubling them?

Answer: 
As a general rule of thumb, for thicker materials you'll use larger size spray tips and for thinner materials you'll use smaller size spray tips. However the best way to know which tip size to use will be to refer to the manufacturer of the material you wish to spray. They should have a recommendation either on the back of the can or by calling their 1-800 number.
