Control Spray Max Sprayer
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.
- Stationary base with variable power settings
- Control Finish nozzle with 1 ½ qt. cup and professional grade metal 1 qt. cup
- Pattern adjustment can be horizontal or vertical and wide or narrow
- Adjustable paint flow to match covering speed and project size
- Adjustable for full coverage, precise control and low overspray

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from paint I liked the overall experience, however I wish I could load more paint. The only other complaint it tends to be difficult to pour paint from a 1 gl. can into the plastic container

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mr Sig 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?
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?
For Kilz primers we suggest something stronger, like the Flexio line of HVLP. https://www.wagnerspraytech.com/?s=flexio

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
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.

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.
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 www.wagnerspraytech.com

What is the difference between this sprayer and the "Wagner Flexio 4000"? They look similar except for switching the yellow and black colors
The Flexio has more power and will spray thicker material easier than the Control Spray.

The Control max comes with a fine finish nozzle, but there is no hose on the side. What is the purpose of the side hose on the replacement #0529013?
All HVLP cups are pressurized with air from the system. That clear tube is where the air goes into the cup. Cup that don't have the tube have an internal tube through the gun head for that purpose. Without pressure in the cup, to push paint into the gun head for spraying, nothing will spray.

I am painting a small project using an interior latex paint. I am getting a lot of spatter, and have tried different pressures as well as different dilutions. What can I do to fix this?
You may need to thin the paint just a bit and try again. After you thin it make sure it is mixed up very well with a drill. Also make sure the end of the nozzle is no more than 8" away from what you are spraying. If you still have any problems feel free to call us at 1-800-328-8251.

I asked the question about Valspar Reserve exterior latex paint a few moments ago, because a friend has loaned me her paint sprayer, a Control Max. But I won't use it if the paint has to be thinned, so I need to know. Thanks!
I am having difficulty using a diluted latex myself. I wouldn't recommend trying it full thickness.

I have a small vintage fiberglass trailer (Boler). I want to repaint the interior. I am wondering if the Wagner 0518080 Control Spray Max HVLP Sprayer Wagner 0518080 Control Spray Max HVLP Sprayer would be suitable to spray gel coat.
Take a look at our more powerful, Flexio line if you want to spray gelcoat.
