SMART Roller

$ 27.99
The Wagner SMART Roller will transform your home faster than traditional paint rollers, giving you more time to enjoy your freshly painted walls and ceilings. This paint stick roller is a paint roller that holds paint directly in the handle, eliminating the need for roller trays.

A simple squeeze of the ratchet power trigger directly feeds paint to the paint roller cover. When you need more paint, the refillable paint roller draws paint directly from the can.

The paint tube roller is perfect for medium-sized projects, and the extended handle lets you reach 8' ceilings with ease.

SMART Roller is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 81.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy I have loved this product for many years, but they redesigned it and it doesn't work anymore. It leaks now even on the first day of use! I even ordered another one thinking that I just got a bad one. I ended up throwing both in the trash! I wasted my money and am very sorry that they decided to change a design that worked so wonderfully. I will not buy another one and told all my friends that I had recommended it to that they had changed the design and not to buy it now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'll never paint without one ever again I painted my entire 40 X 60 shop on plywood with this roller and it worked like a champ! Anyone that says these rollers dont work obviously dont know how to paint. One person below said something about using more paint to paint a room than with a regular roller - NOT POSSIBLE unless you used a different paint on a different surface! This roller is KING!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Used to be a great product Wow. I own an older one, and actually used to have the original model which did not have the clip on roller holding part (It had a screw on sleeve). Switched to the second generation unit when I loaned my first one to someone who never returned it. Worked great, although I worried about that clip on part! So fast forward. we have about 1600 SF of walls to paint, so picked up a second one to make life easy. Wow, out of the box...CHEAP junk! why did you change. Yes, lightweight was a nice idea, but the rest of it - flimsy. The ratchet part, the handle was loose, even though clipped together correctly, and everything just looked, thin, wonder I could not find it at the big box stores. I bought it at my local ACE, they said there, they no longer get a lot of calls for them, and they didn't even stock the rollers (we had some at home). Well, Guys, I know why they don't get a lot of calls for them, you took a great product that I told a lot of people about, and junked it for the sake of profit. Well, you get less profit on junk, guys. I brought it unused back to the store for full refund. We will just have to use the one... Won't be buying another

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I’ll stick to my old roller I bought this a month ago but barely able to use it. It was much more difficult to use than a traditional roller. Also, it used more paint than my traditional roller. I used 3/4 can of paint on half of the bedroom when it only took one can of paint for the master bedroom and restroom. Unfortunately I can’t even return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest paint accessory ever. I have owned and used several of these and I will not paint a room without one. The ONLY problem I have is I keep loosing parts after cleaning them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea. I decided to use my smart roller instead of a regular paint brush and roller to repaint my bathroom. It worked like a charm, set up was easier than anticipated, it was easy to use, and the clean up, a snap. A really great idea.
Date published: 2020-05-21
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cumbersome It takes longer to paint with this roller than it does with a regular manual roller. Attachment for the tube filler and the paint can is very flimsy. Potential could be a good piece of equipment if it was easier to reload which would allow you to move quicker.
Date published: 2020-05-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well, I liked it There's a lot of complaints about this device in reviews but overall, I liked it. Assembling was fairly easy and using it to paint the wall was easy as well. Oddly i'm speckled with little dots of paint because it seemed to do that.

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.

I've been using the smart roller for years, but occasionally the roller leaks from the roller arm seal. Can't figure out why.

Even happens on new rollers. All seals clean, in good condition and lubed properly.
Asked by: Rbybee
I'm sorry to hear that you're having leakage from the roller arm seal on your Smart Roller. That seal can leak if it has shifted off of its seat, or is under- or over-lubricated. I would make sure that there isn't too much petroleum jelly on the seal which may prevent the roller cap from making complete contact with it and allowing paint to flow past.

should my roller be damp before i start painting?

It seems like it takes a lot of paint to get the roller loaded with paint, will it help if my roller is damp first?
Asked by: katie
Wetting the roller cover will not have any affect on how the paint loads into it, and if the water were to enter the roller core, it could potentially dilute the paint and cause drips and runs. If you feel like the thickness of the nap may be an issue, you may want to wrap the roller in painters tape and then pull it back off, this will fluff the nap to provide the largest gap between fibers for the material to work through.

Can a Smart Roller that will not suction up paint be fixed?

I have an older Smart Roller and it won't suction up paint any longer. Is there anything I can do to fix it?
Asked by: Anital
Not sure if the older one has the "duck bill" the rubber piece inside the disk where the fill tube goes. If that "duck bill" has a tear in it, it would fill.

How do I get the roller core out of the cover? I know this sounds so silly but I keep pulling as hard as I can but can't get the cover off the core.

Have you changed the product so that the cores are now part of the cover as one solid piece???
Asked by: katylee1066
The roller core is a separate piece from the roller nap. They are a tight fit together, and especially if the roller is slippery with paint can be difficult to pull apart. You may first try rinsing the roller nap to remove some of the slipperiness of the latex paint. However once removed from the roller arm - the roller nap should be able to be removed from the roller core by pulling it off the same end of the roller core that was attached to the roller arm. If it has dried prior to trying to remove it, it may be necessary to soak the roller core and nap together in some warm soapy water in order to help you separate them.

Can I adapt the SMART roller to use a 3" trim roller?

Does the trim roller tube and cover assembly attach to the SMART roller shaft? I want the length of the SMART roller but a smaller roller cover.
Asked by: friendOfLuigi
While a 3" SMART Edge Roller could physically be attached to the SMART Roller, the rate at which paint will flow to the 3" roller will likely be greater than such a small roller can handle and the result would be oversaturation - basically it would be difficult to apply paint cleanly and with a nice end result this way.
