    Wagner Power Painter Plus with EZ 3.6 5 36 36
    Don't make the same mistake I made. I purchased this product after reading the specs and assumed it would work under the wide variety of circumstances advertised. Don't drink the Kool Aid! This product spits ridiculous globs of paint when the one quart cup is about two-thirds empty. This causes an inordinate amount of time to be wasted brushing out the excess paint. I thought using a sprayer was supposed to be favored in lieu of a brush in order to save time. I found myself spraying AND brushing with this beast. The little EZ Tilt flexible suction tube does little to resolve this issue. What's more, there is no way to discern the fluid level in the one-quart cup without removing it. Cleaning up after using oil-based paint required over an hour to completely clean, disassemble and reassemble the unit. What a colossal waste of time. I regret that I wasted my money on the Wagner Power Painter Plus. I put the unit away after only two uses. I will gladly donate it to any poor soul who can't afford anything better. October 23, 2013
    This painter earns its PLUS and EZ reputation. My Wagner Power Painter Plus with EZ Tilt fully lives up to its maker's marketing assertions. With little painting experience, I was determined to spray paint my perlite-covered ceiling. To get it right the first time, I disassembled and reassembled my PLUS as I read the 18 page instruction manual and Quick Tips insert (more than once). I read all the online product reviews; I surfed numerous websites, and I watched many how-to videos. And, before using the unit, I practiced, assembled everything I might need and I emptied and prepared the room to paint only the intended target. The only surprise was how breathing through a dust mask would cause my warm breath to fog my goggles. In other words, I prepared. During my first practice, I even called Wagner's tech support and got a fast and friendly clarification to my question on lubricating the piston. In short, if you follow the safety and technical instructions, make sure your paint is thoroughly stirred, and set the time aside to properly prepare, carefully perform, thoroughly clean-up and prepare and store your equipment for its next use, this product, within its technical parameters, will serve you well for many projects ahead. My wife was very pleased with the outcome! October 20, 2013
    Accessories are not available I purchased a eztilt power painter to paint a fence. However the paint container is much too small. When I checked into purchasing the backpack kit or the remote suction hose kit, neither are available at Lowe's or listed on your website. September 7, 2013
    Fantastic value I just finished painting the exterior siding of my 2,000 sq. ft. home. I have red cedar clapboard on the front and white cedar on the other 3 sides. I pumped 15+ gallons of Behr Marquee flat ext. paint through my sprayer. The sprayer worked Great! Make sure you don't let it run out as then it will spray globs. I used mine for hours at a time in very warm weather with very little issues. August 14, 2013
    Keep it clean. First time I used a paint sprayer and it worked very well without any problem, just a detail that the container is small and refills are constant, a sign that everything is working properly, you have to use a damp cloth to keep clean the nozzle and not to let the container to empty. I Use 20 liters outdoors, indoors 12 liters, just a change of atomizer valve and constant nozzle cleaning, very impressed with the speed and the result, congratulations to the designers of this tool.

    Pleasantly surprised I have to admit my primary draw to this product was the idea of me painting my home (it is a smaller 1 1/2 story) for far cheaper than hiring someone (after some practice of course). I decided to try it out on my basement which needed a fresh up. Out of the box the quick start guide had me going pretty easily.. i did spill a little paint trying to get it into the cup the first time but the second time filling was no issue. The paint I was using was Ace hardwares store brand which seems to really do well for me.. I did not thin it at all. The only thing I can guarantee everyone who uses this will notice is that you fly through paint.. I sprayed an entire gallon in approx 30 minutes.. This include time spent refilling. It covered awesome... even the darkest shade brown that I could find when I originally painted the basement. I just couldnt believe how fast it was and regretted not having one sooner. The overspray was pretty high but I hung up plastic drop cloths on walls and items i didnt want covered. Cleanup took time but it was not hard... much easier than I expected and less frustrating then cleaning out rollers and brushes. Overall this is a great buy and would reccomend it to anyone. For once I can say I cant wait to paint again. July 14, 2013
    Time saver/great for first time sprayers First timer read the pro and cons and went for it. Works awesome! Doing restoration of 1950's clam shell hurricane shutters, which take forever by hand. Used Behr's primer, sealer stainkiller semi-gloss latex and did in two quick coats. Shutters are aluminum, so I prepped and cleaned them well. A few tips: first I let the paint can heat up a bit in the sun "within reason, don't boil it of course" so the latex was nice and smooth, second I used a micron filter and filtered the paint into the guns cup to assure a nice "clean" paint. Lastly I first sprayed water out of the gun to get familiar with its range and what it could do, I then emptied out the extra water and added the filtered paint, I think the wet start helped, of course spray on cardboard for the first few blasts til the paint comes out nice and smooth. If your not tool "challenged" this is a great gun for those small-medium projects. Just take the time to follow the clean up instructions and your good to go. April 28, 2013
    Inadequate Documentation There was no manual. There was no quick-start guide. I had to hunt everything online. Even then the documentation was incomplete. I tried the painter anyway, was frustrated with the results, and now I'm taking it back to the store. Paint costs too much to waste on trial and error. A roller and brush wastes less paint and costs me less money. April 15, 2013

    Answer: 
    Absolutely- as mentioned in my review, I just did a bathroom, ceiling and hallway, with un-thinned Behr satin latex (with Floetrol added), and it was a complete joy- really, really satisfying. The spray pattern is well controlled, so overspray is minimal, and being low pressure, the air doesn't fill with paint fog.
    Now I'm casting around for other things to paint...!!

    Answer: 
    Yes, you can use it indoors. It is an airless sprayer so it will produce overspray so you will want to make sure that everything is covered and you are spraying in a well ventilated area.

    Answer: 
    I can't be sure, not having last year's "Plus", but based on my ownership of a "basic" and now a "Plus/EZ", I'd doubt it. The EZtilt has a weighted valve at the bottom of a flexible corrugated section, with the filter at the TOP, just below the ports to the pump cylinder, plugging in with O-rings and engaging in a coarse screw thread. My "basic" had the filter at the bottom, and wouldn't have taken the EZtilt pickup.
    But, I may be wrong...

    We had to clean the piston for every sheet of plywood as it quit spraying. We did thin the primer a half cup water to the gallon of primer. Worked no better. Appeared to get a ring of dried primer in the little grooves.

    Hope it can spray exterior latex better or it is going back to HD.

    Answer: 
    I suspect that the low lubrication properties of the Kilz, (or any latex paint) along with the heat generated during operation of the spray gun, causes the paint coating the piston bore to partially dry and quickly begin to build up in the piston grooves. It is likely that when using a mineral oil- based stain or paint, the problem of piston binding from paint build-up would be much reduced or eliminated due to better lubrication provided by the different material being sprayed.

    Answer: 
    While spraying are you holding down the trigger continuously or doing an arm's length pass and letting go of the trigger? If you are holding the trigger down continuously that may be part of the problem. The reason being is the piston inside the machine moves 2000 times per minute and if you hold the trigger down continuously the heat from the pistons starts to dry the paint inside the machine causing it to spit, sputter, or seize the piston.
