Rated 3 out of 5 by from Useful but had some functional problems I recently purchased this for a rental paint job in hopes it would cut the trim time down significantly. The unit was easy to put together for loading and painting. It takes a little experimentation and practice to get the results intended, and the more time I spent with it the better results I got. I did have a functional problem with the unit after I had been used it awhile, and I will discuss that at the end of this review. The unit seems to do best on baseboards and made the work go significantly faster. It wasn't perfect, but the more I used it the better it did. It got very little paint on the baseboards, which if you wipe the shield regularly keeps that from happening. I would say it took only 2O% of the time on the baseboard wall than if I had manually cut it it. Cutting in around the door and window casings was fair to good, it took a little more time to get a sharp line of paint up against the vertical casings. I believe gravity has a lot to do with. When you're rolling horizontally the paint will flow south, toward the baseboard, and I noticed this even more on the ceiling when rolling the wall next to the ceiling. It took much much more effort to get the wall covered up next to the ceiling, again I think this is a gravity thing. I haven't had as much experience with rolling the ceilings yet but it does seem like that's going to be the biggest challenge. However the unit did start leaking on me and it was very frustrating because of the constant wiping. The leak occurred every time I had to depress the trigger to load the roller up with more paint. It got quite messy and wasted some paint. I assume a seal has gone bad and hopefully Wagner will correct this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it Awkward to use. Found it difficult to keep the correct angle when rolling around window molding to keep paint flowing, more so when trying to paint near the ceiling. Could not get close enough to the to get a straight edge. My hand kept getting in the way. At one point applied too much pressure and the unit came apart. I liked the concept, but not the application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked very well Had this for a few week and just have the first job that required edging , I was completely surprised at how well this product performed, not only giving a straight edge, but clean-up was just as easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart edge roller I used my Smart Edge roller yesterday, after getting used to it I found that it reduced cutting in my time significantly. With a little practice I was cutting in like a PRO. Thank you Wagner for a great product.

Alcohol based chemicals will damage the seals and cause it to leak. Stick with water based or mineral spirits based materials. Call us at 800-328-8251 for further information.

Does the smart edge fit on the smart side kick?

Asked by: Barty
The Smart Edge roller itself does not but you can buy the 3" roller arm assembly (#0530201A) and an adapter (#0530217A) that will fit on the Sidekick which will allow you to do trim. You can purchase those from us at 1-800-328-8251.

Getting paint to the roller.

I just received a brand new edge roller and I followed the instructions and the paint will not flow to the roller no matter how many times I press the the button or how long I hold it. It just leaks out of the seam where the plunger assembly meets the roller. Any suggestions?
Asked by: Kara
I'm sorry to hear that your edge roller is leaking and not feeding paint. The roller arm seals to the trigger assembly using the duckbill valve that sits between them. Please ensure that this valve is in place and is not damaged in any way. If the valve is missing or if you are still experiencing issues, please give us a call at 1-800-328-8251 and we'd be happy to help.

I find the paint does not go all the way to the end of the roller

Asked by: Ronc
Typically if you cannot get paint all the way to the roller, something in the roller unit is clogged/dirty or possibly missing. The easiest thing to do usually is to find the parts page in the manual that breaks down the entire unit, and follow along with it checking that everything is where it belongs, nothing is missing, and nothing such as the valves are stuck closed or dirty. If you need further help please call us at 1-800-760-3844 and we'll be happy to help you troubleshoot.
