Project Sprayer 2.3 5 20 20
stain tip I wish I could tell you if we like this product or not. My husband went to use and found out he needed a stain tip for stain; after driving around to 6 different stores (Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart) and spending a total of 2 hrs he still had no luck finding a stain tip. This sprayer has cost us enough money in gas & time that we could have paid someone to paint the items for us. October 5, 2013
Unreliable New unit only sprayed 3/4 gallon of New can of Latex paint before failing. Read troubleshooting guide. Recleaned and oiled unit. Worked for less than a minute. Not worth the time to return for possilble warranty. Threw it in the trash where it belongs. July 8, 2013
Lousy product. Waste of money. The first, only, and last wagner product I will ever purchase. No matter how much thinning I still had big globs of paint. No amount of fine tuning of the control knob helped. Hard to clean as well. The old fashion paint brush is still superior! The project painter was as waste of money. Waste of paint, and big waste of time cleaning up. could never get it adjusted properly for Behr latex paint, and definitely could not spary on a horizontal surface. What a joke this sparyer is.

Great Price, for a good product I purchased this project sprayer to refinish some patio furniture that was given to me. I purchased the sprayer because the price was great, and I was familiar with the Wagner name. The Project Sprayer worked great, even when the oil based paint was a bit too thick. I had the table and 6 chairs repainted in no time. Very few drips or runs in the paint. Clean up was a pain, but with oil based paint that was too be expected. I recommend using an old tooth brush to help clean some of the parts. Already looking for other projects to use it on! May 14, 2013
Great product!! I'm in love I love this project sprayer. I've painted bedrooms, fences, furniture and the exterior of my house. I''ve had this sprayer for 2 years and still no complaints. I recommend to everyone as it is affordable, saves times and is so easy to use. I keep reading reviews that people have used it once and then it never worked again. I ran into that problem once, so I READ THE DIRECTIONS. The sprayer NEEDS to be oiled. I've found that if I skip this step, I run into difficulty, but as long as it is oiled, it works beautifully EVERY SINGLE TIME! The oil allows all the mechanisms to run smoothly without getting stuck. Also, I find that a latex paint thinner will help when the paint is unusually thick. All in all, this is a wonderful product that makes all of my projects easier. Great buy! March 15, 2013
WOW ! complete piece of junk have used my old wagner for years, seen this new one and thought i would treat my self to an upgrade.....pulled it out of the box filled to max level with paint. it sprays a nice cloud of paint with lots of big blobs & splatters (have a paint brush in your hand at all times) also the large suction tube is not long enough so you can only use about 2/3 of the paint in the cup ,dont even think about spraying laid flat on a work surface.DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY & PAINT ON THIS JUNK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! March 14, 2013
Used Once.....4.8 piece of junk I never write reviews.... but this time I am very angry at having spent good money on a piece of junk. I purchased my 4.8 Wagner Project Sprayer at Home Depot this past fall 2012. (After inheriting my fathers old spray painter and using for 9 years, I assumed this would be a piece of cake.) Far from it. I read directions, took apart , reassembled and used on one project. Great results, however knew I needed to get used to this new 4.8 machine. Cleaned immediately and put away. I tried to use again and couldn't put back together as before, my husband then tried and we both assumed it was perfect. No way it again would not paint so for 2nd time I had to dump out paint and clean up. I am sending back to you at Wagner. I don't have my box nor receipt as kept this project sprayer in nice plastic bin with supplies. Very disappointed. February 28, 2013
Great product but you MUST follow the instruction! You MUST follow the instruction!! This is a great product but I will say this again: "Follow the instruction!!" I used acrylic based wood stain to do my whole backyard project #Fence and gazebo# using this Wagner Project Sprayer. It's quite a big caliber job for this project sprayer #About 40 ft X 30 ft X 30 ft of fence, 9 ft X 9 ft gazebo, and also the gazebo's cedar shingle roof# but this sprayer did all these very well. This is my first wood staining project and I'm not a professional. I cannot say this enough: "Follow the instruction!" When you press the trigger to spray, you have to PAUSE at every 'arm length' stroke. NEVER spray continuously! because you'll overheat the piston and break the whole system. Cleaning the system is also easy since I used acrylic based stain. I even only used warm water without soap and it clean easily. If you used this correctly, it'll be the best investment you've done for all your painting and staining project no matter how big the job. February 16, 2013

Answer: 
Yes, works wonderfully. They make a latex conditioner (thinner) that will help if it gets a bit thick, but otherwise I've had no problem with oil based and flat semi-gloss and satin latex.

Answer: 
i dont see why not. just thin it with a 32 oz bottle per gallon of either flood floetrol or wagner paint easy paint additive and half a bottle or less of water for final density. straight water can mess with the composition and color of the paint these additives can dull high gloss a little but should be fine with semi gloss.

Answer: 
The sprayer will make a loud buzzing noise when in use. If it starts to make a humming noise you will want to check your piston to make sure that it is not seized inside the pump housing.

Answer: 
When spraying latex paint you want to contact the manufacture of the paint to see what they recommend for a tip size when using an airless sprayer. The maximum tip size the Pro Coat can support is a .015. If the manufacture of the paint recommends a .015 or smaller no thinning is required. If the manufacture requires larger than a .015 tip ask them for thinning recommendations on the paint.
