Flexio 890 Sprayer
The FLEXiO® 890 stationary system puts the weight in the integrated storage case on the ground for extended spraying comfort. It can paint a wall 12 times faster than a brush or put a fine finish on furniture saving time and effort. The FLEXiO 890 comes complete with two nozzles, one for big surface projects like walls and ceilings and the other for small projects and fine finishing on furniture, cabinets and trim. The turbine sits on the ground delivering air power through the hose to spray unthinned coatings with on-handle adjustments to maximize coverage and minimize overspray. Cleaning is faster than a brush or roller with a few removable parts that rinse clean, and the turbine base holds the hose and nozzles for easy storage.
- Covers an 8’ x 10’ surface in one to five minutes and can spray up to 8.4 gallons per hour
- X-Boost Base with 11 ½' air hose provides longer painting comfort
- Innovative iSpray nozzle provides fast coverage and can spray unthinned paints
- Pattern adjustment can be horizontal or vertical and wide or narrow
- Detail finish nozzle for small projects and fine finishes
- Adjustable paint flow to match covering speed and project size

Rated 5 out of 5 by Warms Fuzzy from Great homeowner's tool! Opened it up, set it to recommended settings for my latex primer/paint, and had fun painting my house. All four times it misbehaved were user error. The first was severe drooling and glob-spitting because I didn't realize the black keeper ring came a bit loose when I changed my spray pattern. That ring needs to stay as tight as it goes; I don't think you can overtighten it by hand. Second time, I failed to unscrew the container before taking off the black keeper ring, and air pressure made it barf paint. Third time was glob-spitting, and I was stumped for a while; I thought I had done everything by the book. Figured out the teeny air valve had water in it from the last washing; when dried, worked perfectly again. Fourth time, same spitting, but because the little air hole in the top of the suction tube got paint on it-- I had knocked over the sprayer's container after adding paint. I detail those because the short trouble-shooting section in the booklet didn't give the last two as "how to fix" options. Some reviews said they took the nozzle apart and soaked it if they took a break, but you don't need to. The air channel and paint channel are separate, so leave the nozzle all together and the paint won't dry anywhere but the exposed tip of the nozzle, which is super easy to wipe clean even when the paint is dry on it; the plastic resists paint cling. My one gripe is mild: so that the larger material container can hold as much as it does, it has a rim angle that means it has to be turned absolutely upside-down when pouring paint out. There was always at least a quarter inch left in the bottom that the suction tube couldn't get. I am a female with size 8 hands and can barely hold the bottom of the material container with one hand, so the whole paint-retrieval process is slightly annoying. As for cleaning, I tried the recommended process of spraying water through before taking apart the nozzle, but prefered to just take it to the sink instead; the latex paint needs more than a rinse to come off because it's so thick. I carried this rig in pieces up and down a two-story scaffold many times, slightly awkward but very doable. The reach of the hose isn't great if you're using this on a ladder, but any longer and it would get annoying to deal with; it is fairly stiff. I appreciated that I could turn the compressor on and off from the hand unit. The switch is on both sides of the handle, so it's easy to toggle no matter which hand it's in. The compressor's just quiet enough that I didn't need hearing protection (outdoors), and I am sound sensitive. I'm glad I went for a model with the separate, ground-based turbine, and glad it has its own handled case. And yes, the spray gun holder on that handle is helpful, especially if you are working on uneven ground where the hand unit would fall over by itself. Thank you, Wagner people, for making this handy little machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by katethepainter from Ease of use makes this a must have for all DIYers My husband and I own a small boutique that specializes in Repurposing old furniture. I bought my Flexio 890 last summer and since that time have used it to paint over 250 pieces of furniture. Prior to that I was painting all of our pieces with a brush. This product has been a lifesaver and a huge Timesaver. It also gives an incredibly perfect finish to our pieces that could not be achieved with a brush. The biggest compliment from our clientele is that the pieces we do have such a perfect finish...no brushstrokes...no drips. I was a bit reluctant at first, to use the sprayer thinking there would be paint everywhere. The paint gets on the piece but there is almost no overspray. I was also concerned that after a few uses, it would clog up and that the clean up would take more time than painting with a sprayer would be worth. Not true. The cleanup is very easy and after 250 pieces, it still works perfect every time. I use mine almost everyday and I don't know now how I ever lived without it. No classes required. Fill it with paint and get to work. Your first piece will look like it was painted by a pro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JDOM37 from Lifesaver!! I recently used the Flexio 890 to paint my 1950's interior walls and was blown away by how fast and effective this tool is. It is quiet and works with ease. It is easy to set up and cleanup. The Flexio 890 has been a lifesaver. I really do not like to paint, but with this by my side I feel like I don't have to spend a whole day doing something I do not enjoy. This is a must buy if you paint a lot! So worth it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by hotdaddy1 from Not for an indoor space painting a Quick review for Wagner 890 airless paint spray. Survived from suffocation today. I bought a Wagner airless paint sprayer to save time and energy for paining our new house. However, it turned out that a paint sprayer was not a good idea for painting an indoor space especially about 12X13 size rooms. 1. the room was filled with the paint dusts (I don't know how I call it but the sprayed paint particles) in couple minutes. And with just a 3M dust mask, I couldn't breath properly. So I stopped painting and bought a $60 3M mask to resume (And I realized it was another mistake and money wasting in couple minutes though). 2. In couple minutes later, the dusts covered my safety glass and blocked my sights so that I couldn't even tell how much paint I put on the wall. And the outcome turned out horrible. Luckily a SW paint shop was close by my house so that I could bought rollers and trays and fixed the issue before it all dried. However, I wouldn't recommend using paint sprayer for indoor space paining. I still don't understand how come the reviews on the Wagner site are all 5 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by trswendt from Makes painting projects much easier Painting projects usually go to the bottom of my to-do list because they are tedious and time-consuming. The Flexio 890 made painting quick and even fun. The whole system is contained in a small, but sturdy case; making i teasy to tote to the project site and easy to store. The motor is relatively quiet compared to other sprayers. The sprayer is very light; my arm didn’t get tired holding it. Coverage was great. I used a paint & primer combination so it saved me a lot of time. There are adjustments to control the direction, width, and intensity of the paint. I was pleasantly surprised that clean-up was pretty easy. The spray head pops apart, and the material it’s made of allows the paint to wash off pretty easily. The bench rocker in my backyard went from junk to fab. My front door went from green to red in less than an hour. Can't wait to tackle the rest of the projects on my list.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RentalOwner from Very easy to use! I recently used the Flexio 890 to paint the entire interior of a rental property. It worked great! I had to paint all the ceilings, and while that still wasn't fun, this sprayer helped me get it all painted in less than a day. I also had to spray primer on all the walls, and then used the sprayer to paint the final color on too. I forgot to clean the sprayer the first time i used it and didn't get back to the house until 3 days later. I was worried that it may be ruined, but it was still very easy to clean. I couldn't be more pleased with this sprayer. Very user friendly and did a great job applying paint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by whatdoiknow from Spraying plants? I don't expect many to use the Wagner 890 as I do, but I thought it was worth mentioning: I'm in zone 6a, raise bananas spring through fall outside, hibernate them winters indoors. Last summer was the first I chose not to spray them every week or two outside, normally using the two tanks of water, a capful of fish emulsion each, rarely a capful of neem oil. Last summer was hot, humid, and while not a complete failure, growth rates were slowed considerably, and fewer pups appeared. Last summer is the last summer I don't spray them regularly with the 890. You can't drench them with consumer agricultural sprayers, the wands get gummed up and even if you could get the firehose effect it wouldn't be consistent with their horrible adjustment rings. Hose attachments are slightly worse. The 890 might be overkill, but at $0.79/lb I've so far saved myself well over ten dollars. Plus the yard smells like fish. I can't recommend this enough for extreme gardening.

My 890 spits while spraying?
Also make sure there's no water or paint in the air valve or in the air vent at the top of the suction tube.

Using the unit to prime some sticks of basswood headboard. Which spray head and nozzle is best?
The Flexio 890 comes with two nozzles. The first one is the iSpray Nozzle, which will spray unthinned materials including latex paint and is ideal for projects such as spraying walls, small buildings, fences etc and will provide a roller-like, or slightly stippled finish. The other one is the Detail Finish Nozzle, which is best used on your fine finish projects such as spraying cabinets, furniture, doors, trim etc. and will provide a smoother, finer finish than the iSpray Nozzle. Depending on your material, the Detail Finish Nozzle may require some thinning of your material in order to spray properly. If you would like to discuss this or need further assistance feel free to call us at 1-800-328-8251.

How many stage turbine does this use? Dose it come with a viscosity cup and should one be used? if so dose this come with a time table? Should paint be run through a filter?
The Flexio 890 is a two stage turbine. It does not come with a viscosity cup. You should always make sure the paint is mixed up well and that it is strained. Feel free to call us at 1-800-328-8251 with any further questions.
