Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Wagner Sidekick is one awesome tool! This was a great purchase for me. Saves tons of time and super easy cleanup! Painted a three bedroom Two and a half bath townhouse today with this produced. Just want to say i love, love, love it! Super easy to use and clean after use. This roller system prevents you from dripping paint on the floor and wasted time going back and forth to refill your roller in a paint pan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This power roller works great. You can fly through a paint job with this unit. Painted my master bedroom and bathroom in an hour. Second coat took 15 minutes. Never dripped even once. No need for drop cloths. Clean up is automatic, just be sure to put lots of Dawn dish soap in the first bucket of warm water and do it outside. I prefer to trash the rollers instead of cleaning them. Just depends on your budget.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Started of strong and fizzled out. At first I was very impressed with this roller. I painted my ceiling in probably half the time of a regular roller. Then I cleaned it to switch colors for my wall. I meticulously cleaned it like the manual said to , and lubricated the seals. It went fine for awhile then small drips at the handle connection to the roller. then it started to stream out. took it apart clean it and same thing. replaced the o-ring and it was fine for awhile and then same thing. then it started leaking out of the roller also and ran down my wall. Luckily I am painting in a new construction area so there is no finished flooring. If my floor had carpet I would be md as it dripped every where. luckily where I got the thing takes returns up to 30 days

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This product is great but with some flaws. Lots to paint and this looked like a great time saver. It works good if you don't mind paint running down the handle and your arm. I read the reviews and saw that this could be a problem. I thought since it was an old review the problem had been taken care of. It also said that perhaps they put it together wrong is why it leaked. I put it together exactly as instructed, there was no error. It still leaked. I am very disappointed. If this problem was fixed it would be a 5 star.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Great Time-Saving Tool! It made a difficult job easy and fun. I bought this tool after much research to ensure I was getting a product that would do exactly what I wanted it to. My daughter just bought a condo and every room needed to be painted. I DID NOT want to use the traditional paint rollers and trays. This tool was perfect! It was easy to set up and start to paint the room. I only wish I has bought two (2) of these. I could have used one and my daughter the other one. We would have painted these rooms in half the time. Surprisingly, the clean-up afterwards was really not that bad. The reverse switch pumps unused paint back into the can. Then, you simply disassemble the roller handle to clean the few internal parts. The roller itself is simply thrown away. The tubing is cleaned easily by pumping warm, soapy water through it much like when paint was pumped through. It came out very clean each time we cleaned it. As I mentioned in the title, it made a difficult job much easier and a lot more fun to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was pleasantly amazed! I must admit I was a bit sceptical about this product as I have been disappointed in the past with many painting "gimmick" products. The on sale price was right and I had a huge ceiling to paint so I decided to give it a try. I was VERY pleased with the use and results from this unit. I went online and watched all the available videos on setup, use and cleaning and this made the whole process a snap. I will admit when painting the ceiling the whole unit with the hose full of paint and the extension on was a bit heavy, but when painting on a ceiling everything gets heavy very quickly. This ease of dispensing paint made it much faster and therefore the discomfort time was greatly reduced. The cleanup designed for the machine made it amazing easy. The only flaw I found was when you needed to take a short break and lay it down it did leak quite a bit of paint. But that is overcome by simply laying it on a piece of plastic. Overall I would highly recommend this unit for anyone who must paint and wants to get it done!!!

Hi I would like to know how many watts the roller runs on as I need to consider a converter as I’m in Australia and Wagner doesn’t sell sidekick here

Asked by: Rod Bates
The Smart Sidekick has 0.5 Amps and runs on 120 Volts so the wattage is 60. Please contact our technical support staff at 1(800)328-8251 if you have any other questions or needs.

Does Wagner offer a 4", 5", or 6" roller attachment that can be used in place of the 9" roller on the Smart Sidekick? I would like to paint exterior Hardie Plank siding that has a 6" exposure between laps. Thanks

Is there a three or six inch attachment power supply for the Wagner power max roller? All we see is the nine inch. Thank you 

Asked by: Grammmy
We do have a 3" Roller arm accessory (0530201A) and a 6" Roller arm accessory (0530206A) that can be used with the Sidekick roller. Either one needs to be used with the roller arm adapter (0530217A) which connects it to the roller handle. The above two part numbers come with one roller cover and can be ordered from us at 1-800-328-8251.

I used the sidekick twice 8 months ago with great success, today I was only able to paint a half of a wall and it stopped pumping paint through the line I tried flushing with water no luck is there a way to pull off tubes to flush lines? Pump still runs

Asked by: Ralph B
Sorry to hear about your issues, if the pump in running but no material is being there may be something amiss with the internals of it. The unit comes with a one year warranty when issues like this may arise. If you could please call our technical support staff at 1(800)328-8251 they can look into the warranty and get your roller working as it should.

The Auto Feed Control button stopped working before I finished the first room. I understand this function is air driven. Is there something I can clean or clear to make it work again? The device is fairly useless without flow control.

Asked by: L Smith
If you are talking about the button on the handle no longer toggling to stop and start the flow of paint there is no way take it apart to clear or clean. The unit comes with a 1 year warranty when issues like this arise. If you could call our technical support staff at 1(800)328-8251 they can go about the process if available.

Can this be used to put stain on a deck

Asked by: Needledude
It sure can. Anything that cleans up with water or mineral spirits is just fine.
