Control Spray Max Sprayer

$ 129.99
The Wagner Control Spray Max sprays materials in patterns from 1/2" to 12" wide with optimum control and precision making it superior to brushes and spray cans for fine finish work. HVLP technology uses a high volume of air at low pressure to atomize materials into fine particles. This results in a professional finish with virtually no overspray.

Control Spray Max Finishing Sprayer is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good sprayer for small to medium jobs. I used it on a new fence. Used acrylic solid stain and plugged up every 5min. I thinned (manufacturer said not to), and it worked fine. I guess I’ll only use it with a thin to medium fluid paint products. Had to back brush per manuf instructions for spray application, but still better than a brush.

is my assumption of the difference between the pressure control and material flow sound right? pressure control is how many psi's are supplied to the nozzle, whereas the material control is how much material is sucked out of the fluid container?

Asked by: eddie18
That is correct. Except that there is no suction in the container. It's pressurized with air, which pushes fluid up into the gun for spraying. For thick paints keep the power up high and the paint flow low for the best atomization. Get more help at 1-800-328-8251.

This says it can spray thicker paints without thinning, specifically do u know if I could spray kilz primer without having to thin?

Asked by: Elrod987
For Kilz primers we suggest something stronger, like the Flexio line of HVLP.

I purchased the Control Max sprayer and am curious regarding the difference between the front end that came with the unit and The Detail Finish Nozzle part number 0529013. If there is a difference between the two, which would work best for spraying stain

Asked by: Sibot
The Control Spray Max comes with the detail finish nozzle (0529013). They are the same and are just right for controlled stain application, like cabinets or woodwork.

I purchased a model 0518080 Control Spray Max HVLP Sprayer in 2016 and recently broke the nozzle. I've searched the site and have had no luck finding a replacement. Do you still keep parts for that model in stock and if so how may I obtain that nozzle?

Asked by: R L Berg
We sure do have parts in stock, just give us a call to place an order at 800-328-8251.

Is there an accessory available to allow drawing paint directly from the bucket? Pouring paint from a 5 gal. bucket into the included cup seems daunting. My last Wagner sprayer had that accessory included with the kit.

Asked by: TeeMo
You cannot draw paint directly from the can using HVLP sprayers, except our Flexio 990 and 970 models which have a pump for moving paint to the spray gun. Check them out at

What is the difference between this sprayer and the "Wagner Flexio 4000"? They look similar except for switching the yellow and black colors

Asked by: Erik
The Flexio has more power and will spray thicker material easier than the Control Spray.
