Control Pro 150 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from More than I expected I have used this for awhile now. It has always impressed me with the quality of it's build and coverage. Clean up is something that must be done for continued performance. I would purchase this product to use on a wide variety of jobs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Great Product I've been meaning to write a review about this product for awhile now. Love that the unit is small and portable and the oversized handle is convenient. If it were a bit taller I feel it would make feeding the tube into a 5 gallon easier; at times it has gotten kinked. Practicing spraying with water for the first couple of tries is beneficial. Overall it sprays smoothly and effortlessly. The long hose really helps not having to move the unit often but the short electrical chord does force you to carry an extension chord at all times. Overall I would recommend this product for every DIYer and professional alike.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Regulating the spray Nice machine and easy to maneuver around the area. I gave a 3 only because we had a hard time spraying an even amount of paint. We followed the directions to the letter however the sprayer would deliver way too much paint with each pull of the trigger. We went through a five gallon bucket rapidly with a lot of overspray. It didn’t matter if we stood further back and mover faster, it was very difficult to obtain a smooth pattern of painting. I cannot say I wouldn’t recommend this product as it’s probably our fault in setting it up. We had some difficulties in understanding the directions so maybe the issues were ours versus someone who has used a sprayer like this before. Over the years we have owned several Wagner sprayers and had great success. I would welcome any feedback on what we were doing wrong as I really want to use it again soon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst experience of my life. I got off a 10 hour shift, super excited to come and and start to paint my back patio. I set up the Pro 150. I followed the instructions TO THE TEE. The spray nozzle was faulty. Paint everywhere. Lucky I have a great local ACE HARDWARE. I’m taking it back and getting a refund tomorrow. It’s terrible. Now I have to do double the work to get the ferment cleaned.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I purchased this sprayer after disappointment with another sprayer.....it worked beautifully , and sprayed just as they said that it would. It was also very easy to clean ! Also, much less expensive than the other sprayer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful Sprayer with Practice I am undergoing a complete home renovation and was looking for a sprayer that would make my life easier to repaint and entire house. Given the multitude of uses I was able to use the sprayer for I can confidently list the Pro's and Con's I found with this sprayer. The sprayer is lightweight and very portable, the hose for the sprayer gun is a really good length which when transporting can make it a little cumbersome, but this is not a problem given the length gives you excellent flexibility to move around large spaces without dragging the main unit. The power cord is very short so you definitely will need to pack an extension cord for convenience. Overall the sprayer is well designed and built very sturdy. Has a convenient handle for carrying and is very easy to assemble and use. The feed tubing is pre-bent to fit in a 5 gallon bucket which is convenient to keep it from wiggling around while in use. It has a cover over the end so it will not suck up any lumps or particles. Now to the actual use. First thing that is noticeable when you turn it on, is the unit is LOUD. Best to pack some headphones or earplugs while using, it also does have a lot of vibration, which you will need to be very sure to tighten the sprayer hose to the unit with a wrench. If it is not tight enough it will loosen and you will end up with a leak and paint all over the area you sat the sprayer. Once you get spraying the unit does an AMAZING job. It sprays very even and precise. Excellent power in the unit without being overwhelming. Novices will need to practice getting their distancing right and not give in to the urge to move closer and continuously go over sprayed areas, this will cause you to over paint and end up with runs. After a little practice you will find the unit is top notch at getting nice even coats on the first pass. This is a huge time and paint saver once you get the hang of it. A big key to being happy with this sprayer is prep work. I don't recommend using this sprayer in small enclosed areas unless you take the time to remove or cover anything you don't want to get covered by over-spray. In larger spaces and open areas, this sprayer is amazing and you will likely be very pleased with the results. Cleaning the unit is a bit laborsome, you will need to have a bucket to hold clean water in and spray the unit to clean every piece. Wagner may want to consider a water hose connection in the future to make cleanup easier. It is also difficult to clean the hose to for the sprayer and you likely will have water stuck in the hose unless you take an extra 15-20 minutes to run air through the unit and let it spray out. Overall I think this sprayer is an excellent investment to get intermediate painters through large projects. It will save tons of time and money with a little preparation and practice. Great product from Wagner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My bottom line: easy to use for a great finish I admit it ---I’m as lazy as the next guy. I absolutely hate to clean up after painting. So if I’m going to paint a medium-sized room, a bookcase, or even a fence, my tendency will be to grab a brush and standard roller, especially if I want the control that a brush gives me; I just won’t be interested in the work involved to set up and clean a paint sprayer. NOT SO FAST!!!! Yes, brushing can help “work” paints and stains into cracks and irregular surfaces, but, so can a sprayer. In fact, a sprayer can do a much better job. Paint sprayers are frequently advertised as time savers, but their real value is the way a good sprayer actually drives the paint into the material, enabling a better seal. I’ll even argue that, based on my experience, to paint or stain a rough surface, like an older wooden fence, or a deck, you’ll have better and longer-lasting results with the right sprayer. I’ve worked with other paint sprayers over the past 5 years, and therefore was eager to try Wagner’s Control Pro. I tested the 150 model which is the junior member in the series. It has less horsepower, a shorter hose, and more plastic in its construction, but its basic appearance and operation is the same as its Control Pro siblings. WHAT I LOVE: For my test, I sprayed an interior latex paint onto a large wooden shelving unit. Once I became comfortable with the machine, I really enjoyed using it. The Spray Gun itself is easy to hold for long periods of time and the 25 feet of hose length was ample. The gun is nimble – I was able to reach into tight spaces and still get a nice spray. The resulting paint finish is pretty – coverage is unbelievably even and smooth. I was able to get a really nice coat on the skinny board edges as well as on the long, wide stretches of shelving. Getting paint into routed grooves was incredibly easy: I was able to apply “just enough” paint to get good coverage. With other sprayers, I usually get paint runs from trying to cover the multi-dimensional surface. I suspect my success was because of the Spray Tip design. The Control Pro offers 7 different Spray Tips, each designed for different coating materials – the lower-numbered Tips are for thinner materials, such as clear stains, while the higher numbers are for oils and exterior paints. However, for the home owner who has only an occasional need for a sprayer, this feature might be a drawback: having to buy 2 or 3 more Spray Tips, that retail about $20 apiece, would probably be unexpected and upsetting. Other sprayers that I’ve used, like the Flexio, have a dial adjustment built into the gun, and don’t require special Spray Tips. Other great things: Assembly of the unit is very easy. The drawings are very detailed and precise. The How-to Videos are short and concise. The Quick-Start Guide boils instructions down to the essence. The Owner’s Manual is written by someone fluent in English, unlike many that I’ve seen these days. WHAT I WOULD CHANGE I needed a pair of pliers to install the hose clamp, and that tool is not stated as one that is needed, so I would add that to the list. Also, the hose clamp on the 150 is all plastic, which, in my opinion, is a poor design choice. Clamps are meant to come off and go back on; plastic inevitably breaks in those circumstances. A metal clamp would be better. I also would provide at least 3 different Spray Tips with the unit. The unit ships with the middle-of-the-range 515 tip, which is not recommended for stains. I would be upset if I bought this unit to stain a deck and found that I had to go back to the store to get the appropriate Spray Tip. I also find fault with the sequence of assembly steps. Both the Quick Start Guide and the Owner’s Manual describe steps such as attaching the hose, but make no reference to priming and testing for suction. Instead, these are in the “Notice! Read Before Using” instructions. To test and prime means undoing steps performed in assembly. It would make much more sense to declare the suction test as number 1 in the assembly instructions. Also, the step to place the white inlet filter cap over the end of the suction tube needs to be added in the sequence. When I was spraying, the motor shut off almost immediately, and that unnerved me. Although the Owner’s Manual does state that the motor cycling on and off is normal, the Quick Start Guide does not make mention of this. To me this is such an important factor that I think it should appear in boldface type in both the Owner’s Manual, and the Quick Start Guide. Clean up is not complicated, but it does require some time. For me, that clean-up effort means that a sprayer is not warranted for any project requiring less than 2 gallons of material. The suction tube is pretty rigid, and fits over the rim of a 5-gallon tub, but just barely. To use a 5 -gallon tub with the current tube size, I would probably rig a stand for the body of the sprayer. It would be simpler to make the tube a little more flexible and a little longer. BOTTOM LINE: This is a great sprayer--it produces a great finish, is easy to use, and has a marvelous spray gun. For medium to large-sized home-owner projects, I recommend it highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for large projects Wagner sent me the Control Pro 150 Sprayer to review, and I used it to paint the walls and ceiling of two rooms (13x11 and 11x12) in my home. It was easy to setup, but I had trouble priming it at first. I followed the instructions which stated, "Use water to free the outlet value", and then I was able to prime it. I used a lot of paint on the first room, but after making some adjustment to the setting control knob, I got nice event paint flow on the second room. I like the idea that the sprayer does not run all the time, and the air is not blowing all the time like with the hand sprayer. I also liked how easy it was to paint the celling. You use less paint with this sprayer, which will save you some money. Cleaning after use was easy. I removed the inlet and return hoses to clean them individually, along with the spray gun and nozzle after following the clearing process in the manual. I will be using this sprayer for large projects, and the Flexio 590 Sprayer for small projects.

I am in Australia and my control pro 150 looks differernt to the product pictured here (it has a built in bucket for the paint - is it the same model?) can i use the control pro 150 to spray paint an external render fence using a membrane paint?

Asked by: TimKing
Any membrane paint will require a commercial paint sprayer. Homeowner style paint sprayers do not have the power to spray membrane or elastomeric type paints. You are on the USA Wagner website, which is why the tools are slightly different. Please contact Lorraine at lorraine.delvecchio@wagner-group.com in Australia for local help.

How could I know which sprayer is best too paint my two story house

Asked by: Oscar1
You should decide which paint you are going to use first. Then make sure your sprayer can handle it. Any of our Control Pro's work well with latex paint. But if you decide on a very thick paint you would want the most powerful sprayer you can get. For more help choosing, after you pick your paint, give us a call to discuss at 1-800-328-8251.
