The SMART Roller will transform your home faster than a traditional roller and with less mess.

SMART Roller is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast painting with no mess Just finished a side-by-side comparison with a pretty good pad painter. Used the SMART roller to prime the walls in my kid’s room (bright, dark paint on parts of the walls — hard to hide), then a pretty fast pad painter for a “finish” coat. Didn’t cover, but the SMART roller finished the job not only faster, no ladder, no missed spots, no stroke marks. Great product; only issue is clean up makes it best for larger projects thus, only 4 stars. Thanks Wagner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple Amazingly easy to use and clean up. Eliminated the need for excessive covers, because little, if any splatter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product is not for a woman to use I wish I had done a product review before I bought this at ACE, but I thought hey Im a messy short painter and this could help me..sorry..but not for us little ole italian women! Couldn't get the roller arm assembly into the main tube-got to push it substantially hard down..get a guy to do. Second couldn't get the plunger out the first time, get someone w a grip to do. Third, plunger doesn't do a good job of loading I guess "good" quality paint that is thick-i.e., Kensington w maybe it works w "thin" paint... gave up,...30$ down the drain...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wagner Smart Roller Thoughts I recently had the perfect painting project for this item...CEILINGS... I was a bit skeptical at first to use this but I am glad I did. If you have ever-painted ceilings you know the constant rolling and reaching back to the tray or bucket to refill roller. This was a huge timesaver! I only have 2 constructive comments for this product are: 1-Spatter shield for roller should be included (I was under the impression it had one included) especially for overhead work. 2-Fill tube device for paint bucket could be a little beefier. Over all I was very impressed with this unit. I had some concerns with the clean up of this but was not too big of a deal. I would definitely recommend this product for ceiling work....timesaver!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it! This item eliminated the need to pour the paint into the paint tray. I still had one to kind of sat it down if i needed to use a brush or other tool. I bought a thick, one coat type paint because the walls were previously hot pink and I would say it still worked well once the paint got more fluid on the roller. I would definitely recommend and my husband seemed to like it also!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from using the Wagnet smart roller I received this item about a month ago.Came down with some sickness and just now writing the review. I like the roller because I don't have to keep going back to get paint out of paint bucket, works good on flat surfaces, can put a lot of paint on wall in short period of time, time saver, would be a fifinate time saver in large areas,works well overhead if ceilings are not high, keeps you off the ladder, needs to have splatter shield included. It is a little hard to clean and it leaked a little bit.Overall I would recommend this item.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked well once. Second one I have had. Old one does not have squeeze handle. Second use of my new one and it will not suck up paint from paint can. Not sealing by the roller. Very disappointed. Also tried to call costumer service as I saw from a previous post responses that you were open on Saturday-called and got message you were closed!

Can this be used with an oil based stain for staining a ceiling?

We have tongue and groove installed on the ceiling of a gabled roof over a deck. It is pretty high up and am looking for something to use to apply the stain from a scaffold that goes most of the way up. Would this work with oil based stain overhead, or would it drip too much.
Asked by: Sheryl
It will work great, but you should add the splatter shield, part #0514230 to protect yourself from drips. Contact us at technical support with more questions 800-328-8251.
