The Wagner Control Stainer 350 sprays with speed and consistency. Projects like garage, large decks, walls and exterior trim get done with less work and low overspray.

With a range of materials from semi-transparent stains to some paints, the flow can be increased or reduced for maximum control of how much stain or paint goes on and where it lands.

When the project is done, the Control Stainer 350 cleans up quick; the nozzle assembly separates from the turbine and cleans up in less than eight minutes.

ControlStainer350 is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst product and Company ever I bought this gun a couple of months ago and only used it once the next time I tried to use it, it suddenly stopped working I constantly was calling Wagner about it and they kept saying to clean out the tube that sucks up the paint I kept saying I did I even let it soak and it still wasn't working they just refused to give me a new gun with my warranty I will never buy their product again and I wouldn't recommend anyone else

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Suddenly decides to malfunction... I bought this sprayer for its small compact size and ease of use on small projects. I build planter boxes and use about an 1/8 of a gallon per box. On the first 6 boxes, cleaning after each box, everything works well. But, now I used it on four (4) large planter boxes 54" x 27", with vertical legs of 30". I did all 4 boxes at the same time. It took about 1hr of continual use. I was switching from vertical to horizontal continually. I noticed the Jets of air coming out getting hotter and hotter, but I can't stop...gotta keep going. After 45 min of spraying and switching horizontal to vertical, the setting was on fine spray and no.1 volume; the gun decided to spray wide with lots of volume. I check the sprayer and it narrow on 1, but the sprayer is doing wide on like 4. Lots of stain is going everywhere... Now my boxes have more stain in areas they don't need it and they look like dirt!! The gun gets hot and decides it will spray whatever the, you know what, it wants to spray after 45min of continual use... I will not recommend this sprayer for small projects that require stain on planter boxes. My $2,000 order of boxes look like a kid did them, because the sprayer decided to do its own thing...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great for large jobs, but... I purchased this product specifically to apply semi-transparent stain to a very long cedar fence with total surface area of about 3600 square feet. The sprayer was easy to use, and, most importantly, applied the stain evenly over the spray pattern. In total, the job took less time than I anticipated and the results look very good. The biggest downside to the 350 for large jobs is its small (1.5 qt.) paint cup, which is only good for a few minutes of spraying. My job required 12 gallons of stain, which means I had to refill the cup about 32 times over the course of the job. In fact, I probably spent more time refilling than I did actually spraying. I understand that a much larger cup might make the unit too heavy to be easily handled, but it would be great if Wagner offered, at least as an optional accessory, a cup that could be refilled quickly without removing it from the sprayer (perhaps using a hose and hand pump). Less seriously, while the working parts of the sprayer are fairly easy to clean (at least for water-based stain), the plastic exterior has a lot of nooks and crannies where it's difficult to completely remove dried-on stain. This is particularly true for the turbine section which obviously cannot be immersed.

Where can I buy filters locally? I live in Leavenworth, Ks and the local Home Depot where I bought this which is close by, does not carry the filters but yet they sell the Control Stainer 350. That is why I am returning the sprayer to Home Depot.

What are the differences between the 150, 250, and 350 sprayers?

Asked by: Sam T
The main difference is in the air power of the turbine motor. The 150 is smaller than the 250 and 350. It will only do light materials like oil based stain. The 250 and 350 are the same air power but the 350 comes with the ISpray nozzle assembly so is more suited for for larger projects than the 250.

Can this model be used for paints also?

Asked by: Jorge
It can but they may require thinning to work well. Paint doesn't hurt the sprayer, it's just too thick to spray well with this specific setup. Thin it about 10-20% with water and it should spray better. For more tips call us at 800-328-8251.

It will not draw the paint from the suction tube, paint will come out if you have the gun side ways or upside down, that means paint manually gets pushed in to the suction tube

Asked by: CIhan
It's a problem of a lack of pressure in the paint container. Remove the suction tube. Hold it in front of you so that the dog leg points to your left side. Just below the white foam cup gasket, there is a 1/16" hole. Notice how the tube widens out to support the white foam gasket? The 1/16" hole is in that wider section. Can't see it? It's covered in paint and that's the problem. Air goes through that hole to pressurize the cup and force paint into the gun head for spraying. Contact us with any other questions at 800-328-8251.

Is there an accessory to connect the sprayer to a 5 gallon container?

Asked by: Jo13
No that type of accessory is not available for the Control Stainer 150. Because of this unit being a HVLP(High Volume Low Pressure) sprayer, it requires pressure to build up in the can. This then pushes the paint up the tube to be sprayed. We have the Flexio 970 and 990 that have an include pump that feeds the material to the gun.

How does this sprayer work applying a urethane sealer to stained wood? Will it provide a smooth surface? Would the sealer have to be diluted?

Asked by: cnyer 22
The Control Stainer 350 will spray any material that cleans up with either warm soapy water(water-based) or mineral spirits(oil-based). The Ispray nozzle that comes with it will deliver a roller like finish. Lastly, you should not have to dilute the sealer. Only thicker latex paints would need some dilution to atomize fully.

Yes the Control Stainer 350 will spray some latex materials but will require some thinning go get good atomization. Thicker materials like paints and primer combos would not be recommended for this sprayer. You would then want to look into our Flexio line of sprayers. They are designed to handle thicker materials.

What is the correct operating distance for this sprayer? My manual says 3-6", the video here says 6-8" and a reviewer elsewhere says his manual says 6-12".

Asked by: madkiwi
6" comes up in all three answers and we agree with that. In general a distance of 6" from the nozzle to the project will work in most situations. Farther away will give you a larger pattern but less control, closer in will give you more control but a smaller pattern. It depends on the project. For furniture I would want to be closer than I would for an exterior wall of my house, there is no minimum distance but I would suggest a maximum of 10".

Our Wagner sprayers can only spray materials that either clean up with warm soapy(water-based) or mineral spirits(oil-based). If you are wanting to spray solvent based lacquer you would want to look at either the Earlex Rockler Finishing Sprayer ( http://www.rockler.com/rockler-hvlp-finishing-sprayer ) or the Earlex Spray Station 5500 ( http://www.earlex.com/earlex-hvlp-spraystation-hv5500/ ).

Please, what is the "check valve" for ? What does it do ?

Asked by: dekzan
Good question. The check valve is what allows air to travel in one direction but not the other. This air is used to pressurize the paint container which in turn pushes the paint up into the gun for spraying.

I used the control stainer to paint my steel exterior door using oil based paint. it created a textured look instead of a smooth look. Did I purchase the wrong gun..

Asked by: Franny
By using the iSpray front end that came with the 350 you will not get a "fine" finish. In the manual you will find compatible accessories that include a detail finish nozzle, part #0529013. Using the detail front end along with thinning the paint about 5-10% should provide finer atomization and therefore a better finish. It's also helpful to lay the door down so that gravity helps, instead of hurts you while spraying. And, it's also important to spray from the right distance with the right settings. For an in depth discussion please contact technical support at 800-328-8251.

i just bought the 350 stainer and when i turn it on the stain comes out of the cap and other places. What is wrong? we have tried everything tand it wont stop leaking

Asked by: Shari
The locking ring on the front of the gun is loose. The threaded ring that holds everything tight on the front end can loosen when changing your spray pattern. When it is loose it allows the nozzle to move away from the needle which breaks the seal and allows paint to flow. Tighten it up, just by hand, and it should stop. If that doesn't do it, give us a call at 800-328-8251. We'll figure it out.
