ControlStainer350 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from ControlStainer350 the superior sprayer This sprayer was sent to me for a review. The sprayer came well packaged and came with written instructions which is rare nowadays. Assembly was simple and straightforward. It came with two spray pattern templates for setting the spray width and volume. Instructions are well written, easy to understand and informative. There are links to videos on how to use in instructions also. The first thing I noticed about the sprayer was the spray trigger, it is bulky and may be awkward for smaller hand users. I have big hands and I noticed how awkward the trigger was. It has an ambidextrous power switch which is nice. The blower does run constantly and is slightly loud, kind of like and old vacuum cleaner. The blower is powerful though I will say that. I did have issues with the spray nozzle adjustment being loose. I removed the nozzle and reassembled and it worked fine, I'm going to assume it was not assembled properly at the factory. The sprayer does seem sturdy, fit and finish are quality. First use was easy. Just unscrew the material container fill with stain and turn the pick up tube forward or backward depending on whether you're spraying upward or downward. set the nozzle for vertical or horizontal spray, then pull the trigger and spray away. you should get a minute or two of constant spray out of a full tank, but you will cover a lot of surface. Cleanup is easy with the included cleaning brush. If it's water based, fill container with water and spray. If oil based use mineral spirits. For a thorough cleaning, disassembly is simple. If you have problems refer back to the instruction manual for help. Overall I like this sprayer and will be using it for all my staining projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little project paint/stainer sprayer I finally had a chance to review Wagner’s Control Stainer 350. I have always wanted a paint sprayer and last year I finally bought one. I bought the FLEXIO 3000 because of the amount of fence staining I had to do. The FLEXIO 3000 in my opinion is an overkill for the smaller jobs I sometimes do (spray paint a table, etc.) So I was curious as to how I would like this smaller version 350 for the small project I had to do. Here are my findings: The packaging is simple and straight forward. It doesn’t come in its own case, so I’ll have to be careful about storing it back into the cardboard box when putting it away. Not a big deal. I do like that fact that this unit does weigh less than the FLEXIO 3000. It's lighter and easier to hold with one hand while my other hand was able to adjust the dials and move the project item around. I did feel that the main electrical cord was a bit too short especially with the big 4” warning tag that’s attached to it. The tag was annoying when it would touch my arm, but that’s just me. I’d suggest a longer power cord ~30”. I like the longer power cords because it allows me to wrap it around my pant belt hook which is connected to the extension cord to keep it out of the way. Not to mention where the power cord plugs into the extension cord is bulky and annoying. But that’s just me. This 350 Wagner sprayer seems to be pretty loud. It sounds like my large shop vac., a loud and winey pitch. I would recommend wearing ear plugs. 5-10 minutes is all you’ll probably be able to stand without ear safety concerns. This unit as the loud blower motor running constantly even after releasing the sprayer’s trigger. I don’t remember my FLEXIO 3000 constantly running but I could be wrong. One reason why I think the blower motor continuously runs even though the trigger is not pressed is because maybe it keeps a constant air flow moving over the sprayer’s output nozzle to keep the paint from drying and/or clogging up when used for longer periods. May FLEXIO 3000 did clog up, but that might have been because I was using a stain. Simply wipe the output air cap every so often anyway. I have no idea what the black and yellow icon sticker is supposed to mean on the front of the unit. I must have missed something. Also saw it on the FLEXIO too. Besides, who can see it once you’re spraying anyway? And lastly, there are two markings, one on each side of the sprayer that seems to be a guide for the “Material Flow Control” so you know what number setting you’re on. However, none of the numbers lined up correctly based upon the clicking to lock it in place feel. Not only that, but I couldn’t tell which one of the two markings I should be using as a guide, the one on the right side or the left side? Even if I picked one of the markings as to the indicator, when I rotated the material flow control dial counter clockwise all the way, I didn’t line up on the number #1. And when rotated it all the way clockwise, that indicator mark didn’t land on the highest number #12 either. Neither indicator marking on the unit lined up to anything. No big deal because you’ll probably start from the middle number and go from there. Overall: I enjoyed using it. It was light, easy to use and quick to clean up (5 minutes). I would recommend this product for anyone needing to work on smaller jobs. I suggest wearing ear plugs while using the Control Stainer 350 and enjoy our creations!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and efficient I expecting the same results as other Wagner products and I received them. I painted all the pieces of lumber prior to erecting the back patio screened in porch. There were several small half inch by one inch pieces(23) but the sprayer with its large container made fast work of a job that would have consumed the whole day. The same principal works for this sprayer as any of the other Wagner sprayers I own. Less product and more air helps to eliminate runs. It is always good to keep a clean damp rag handy to occasionally wipe the sprayer tip to prevent clogging. This proved to be a good addition along with my other Wagner sprayers. Clean up proved to be faster than brush clean up , no brushes or cans of mineral spirits sitting around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What the Doctor Ordered! I have always dreaded the annual maintenance of the fence surrounding the backyard. Summer heat, near tropical rain, and the sun in Texas causes board warp, rot and basic appearance issues even with supposedly treated wood. For the past three years, I devoted 3 days to rolling and brushing stain and waterproofing the front and backs of the panels. Used the Wagner Control Stainer 350 this year and i was done in 4 hrs, including reading the manual, setup and post use cleaning! I also used about half the product as I had used in the past. To call this a time saver is being modest. Its also saved costs on product which now the five gallon can will last at least two applications. Setup was intuitive, adjustments for horizontal and vertical spray allow coverage of different surfaces and there is also a volume adjustment for the nozzle to control overspray and allow more detailed work. The unit is pretty easy to clean as you can just pour the remaining material back into the can and use a garden hose or utility sink to clean the four pieces and jug that make up the unit. Really impressed at the quality and ease of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product! I used stain sprayer on an old wooden glider that I took to our lake house. It looks so much better! I wish I had refinished it sooner. We have a fence to replace this spring so I am looking forward to using it on that as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes Staining A Breeze! My first project with the ControlStainer350 was to paint a display case to be use on my outside covered deck. I painted the inside of the case with solid color latex stain (green) and finished the outside of the case with a solid color oil stain (red). After initial setup and determining what flow I needed and what width, it worked like a charm. Had very little issue with runs, overall had great coverage. I have done a couple of these cases in the past with brush and roller, needless to say I will never go back. I found all the control features to be very simple to operate and adjust to your desired specs. The cleanup was super easy and not as time consuming as I thought it would be. After finishing the outside of the case I had stain left over so I used it on part of my catwalk deck that runs down the side of my house. It worked great cant wait till next spring to start on all of my decking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Wagner Controlstainer350 I used it to stain my back fence and it made me feel like a pro. My neighbor was impressed how fast it went and how easy it was to get a great looking stained fence. I'll be doing many more projects with it and my neighbor may be getting one soon.

Is it possible to order a replacement motor section (back half)? My sprayer no longer powers on. It is a Control Stainer 350

HD states this is compatible with stains AND interior/exterior paints....Should you contact HD to change their description?

Asked by: Andy34
It also says "everything from semi-transparent stains to thin bodied paints." Meaning, paints will work as long as they're thin enough. For more help choosing the right sprayer for your project call us at 1-800-328-8251.

How much do I need to thin exterior latex paint for this gun? Ratio to a pint please.

Asked by: Andy34
The Control Stainer 350 is designed to spray stain, not latex paint. You should look at one of our Flexio sprayers like the 3000 or Flexio 5000. If you need further assistance feel free to call us at 1-800-328-8251.

First time user. Just bought it yesterday, set it up. Before I added the paint I wanted to turn it on to see how loud it would be. And notice that hot air comes out from the front. Is or will that be a problem? 

Asked by: Cruzin_86
The Control Stainer 350 HVLP sprayers uses a turbine to produce airflow for atomization of your paint. Air flows freely and when you pull the trigger completely it adds paint. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIT49RXMC_fc2lPG0QTkbeA Lots of spraying videos to see here. For more application tips call us at 1-800-328-8251.

After spray painting most of my fence (first-time use), trigger control was ineffective and could not stop paint flow.  After shut power off - paint streamed out.  Is there a fix?  Brand new purchase

Asked by: Anonymous
Most likely it's because the retaining ring on the front of the nozzle is loose. When the threaded ring on the front, that holds it all together, loosens, it allows the nozzle to move away from the needle, breaking the seal and allowing paint to stream out when under pressure. Please try to tighten the threaded ring on the front of the sprayer. If this doesn't solve the issue, please contact us for warranty help at 1-800-328-8251.

I need to use this sprayer out of my truck, using a power inverter. How many watts do I need to run this sprayer

Asked by: Mickeyreategui
We don't recommend using a power convertor with our sprayers as it will prematurely wear the turbine. In this case 900 W minimum power to operate your sprayer. For more help call us at 1-800-328-8521.

Can I use this with transparent stain for my new fence?  Specifically, Behr Transparent Waterproofing Wood Finish?

Asked by: mikechm
Yes the transparent stains will work well with the Control Stainer 350. Power at max and stain flow lower for better atomization. Call for more application tips at 1-800-328-8251.
