Control Painter 2.0 is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great job I used the control painter to paint about 900 sq ft of fencing. What you see in the picture is the first coat. Worked out really good saving us so much back breaking brushing. I kept the paint flowing smoothly by rinsing the cap/tip in warm water and also ensuring the breathing hole in the container kept clean. After the first coat I also washed the air filter which was sucking in the spray, used it only after drying it. I also taped a pre filter (sponge) like you see in some lawn mowers. After the second coat my filters were covered in paint. The sponge was washable but the filter in the machine was done. Unfortunately this filter is not available in Lowes or Homedepot only on the Wagner website. They are cheap but shipping is like $60 to Canada. So basically ordering a spare filter costs you half the device cost. I look forward to the easy availability of the filters. Do advise. Thanks

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved the final product I ordered my Wagner Paint Gun online and received it promptly. I used it to paint my daughters bedroom. Wow. It took a fraction of the time to paint that it did to prep and tape room. I really liked the finished product. I didn’t have to change from roller to brush to get edges or corners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grandsons' playset Painted my daughter's sons' playset. It turned out fine. Preparation was easy. Cleanup was easier. Painting the crevices and the angles was really easy. Spray coating went on fast and really good looking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to assemble and disassemble Easy to put together and take apart. Easy to clean and use. Great directions. Lightweight. Only drawback is that because I have smaller hands, the length between handle and trigger a little too far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Deck Railing and Spindles I had this now for about a month, and the first thing I noticed was how easy it was to assemble. Here are other features that I like about the Wagner Control Painter, Material Flow Control Setting, let you control how much paint you can use. Setting from 1-12, I set my at 5 or 6, which was enough paint to cover the railing and spindles. If you need to change from vertical to horizontal, no problem, just turn the Front Adjustment Ring a quarter turn, that's it. The Spray Width Lever is a great feature, you can adjust the width of the spray pattern just by sliding the lever. The paint that I used was a Urethane Semi-Gloss Enamel, the paint came out easily with no drip or spills. The on/off switch is on both sides next to the trigger, you can easily turn it on and off no matter if you right handed or left handed. Over all I really like this sprayer and I would highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Features I used the painter 2.0 to paint a picket fence and it worked very well. The gun has many adjustments that makes it very easy to control the flow of paint. Instructions are very easy to understand tell you how to adjust pattern and flow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great for staining my fence I was a little nervous using a sprayer for my first time, especially with lots of negative experiences from others but this worked perfect. Yes it would be nice if container were larger but wear gloves and use a pour spout on your cans and not too much hassle. I stained about 250 linear feet of fence in about 2 hours. Looks fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for stain/waterproofing This Wagner Sprayer has been great! Had a crew in to build a run-in barn utilized the sprayer to spray the entire exterior with a tinted waterproofing. Sprayed even coats making the process very quick.

Hello, which way do I turn the material flow dial to increase or decrease? I cant seem to find it anywhere. Also how do I know which number its shooting out? Is it based on the arrow by the lock and unlock buttons?

Asked by: Sara89
On the flow control dial 1 = least paint and 12 = most paint. Whichever number is right at the top of the dial is the flow setting. For more help call us at 1-800-328-8251.

Can the Control Painter be used to spray polyurethane?

Asked by: Stacie111
Thank you for the inquiry ! Control Paint can be used to spray polyurethane. Water-based polyurethane might required some thinning. With an oil-based polyurethane, Do not spray or clean with liquids having a flash point of less than 100ºF (38ºC), reference the paint can. Flash point is the temperature at which a fluid can produce enough vapor to ignite. Please give our technical support a call at 1-800-328-8251 if you need further assistance.

Can I paint a ceiling with this, or is that a mistake? Is there like a youtube channel with how to vids?

Asked by: crex
If you haven't started on the ceiling, don't. I'm about 8 hours in and have two small bedroom ceilings done. This sprayer struggles with the angles and the latex ceiling paint. Lots of spitting and overspray and now mine is oozing paint when the trigger isn't depressed after a few hours of operation and one cleaning per the included instructions. Rent an airless sprayer if there is a lot of ceiling and if not, just roll it with good paint and save the $100 and headache of this sprayer.
