SMART SideKick Roller is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set-up and use I have 12ft Pop corn ceilings and have to use a latter. This make it easy to reach and roll them without getting up and down the latter a lot. It works well with a short extension. I did have to change rollers about every gallon of paint. The rollers would get clogged up from the pop corn and start leaking paint out the sides. It was easier to change rollers then to clean them. Clean we fast and easy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Long time fan Well,,, I had your older version that took 4-D batteries and it finally died. It served me well since 2000 and I have probably sold more of them than most of your salesman I liked it so much. So I bought this one and there are some serious pros and cons. 120v ac, awesome. Long roller cord, awesome. Direct paint bucket feed, awesome. No speed control? Sucks, this thing puts out more paint than I could cover on a driveway. Handle extension option, half cool, would only be usable with a remote kill, this thing dumps too much paint. The only way I have found to tame this thing is a 1/2" nap roller and never use an extension... What I would like to see to make it awesome? 2' handle with switch or a switch extension. flow/volume control. everything else is awesome but it's very hard to use with it's brute force approach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and Easy This is a great product. It delivers plenty of paint with the touch of a button. You can paint a room so much faster then the conventional way. I'm never going back to the old way of painting, never. The delivery tube is nice and long. It cleans ups really easy.

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.

Hi I have used the power roller and love it. I want to purchase one for myself. Howeever, my house needs to be primed with kilz original oil based product before painting. Can I put kilz in the power roller? If so, how do I clean it?

Asked by: Mickie
When cleaning up oil based paints just use mineral spirits instead of water and follow the directions in the owner's manual. It should take about 15 or so minutes. Then rinse it out with water for 5 more minutes. It's that easy. Good luck with your project.

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

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
