Control Pro 170 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hoses kinked Great machine, used it 3 hours today on a 16x31 deck, lost prime 1 time my fault let it sit too long. Only problem I have is the hoses, going to and from the paint were hooked up to the machine and stuffed in the box, that kinked them also created a place for paint to build up. But still I like it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased! I bought the CP 170 several months ago from one of the big box stores. I finally got to use it this past week to paint the exterior of my house. I am very happy with the results and the performance of the sprayer. I sprayed a premium quality latex paint without any thinning, and had no problems at all. The 170 never complained a bit. I also contacted customer support about an issue before I began and had excellent response from them. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple Design, Intuitive Controls I bought the 170 sprayer this summer to complete cabinetry and masonry paint projects. As someone who has used the “blue brand” multiple times before, I am thrilled by the reliability and simplicity of the Wagner unit. I am thoroughly pleased with the purchase and highly recommend the 170 model for house painting projects!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Desperately want to buy a unit for South Africa I am from Johannesburg, South Africa and have been trying to contact and purchase one of the Wagner Control Pro 170 for my small business for weeks now. I cannot find it in Africa and I cannot find it online except for the Wagner website. I have done extensive research and this product comes out tops every time. However it is extremely disappointing that I cannot get a response to my messages as I really want to buy a unit. I am hoping this review will prompt a reply with an option as to how I can buy one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sprayer For All Projects! This sprayer is a great addition to my painting tools. I have always just hand painted and rolled almost everything. I bought a smaller paint sprayer, but was always frustrated by how little surface area I got covered before I had to refill the reservoir. It was also very heavy and hard on my wrist when I first filled it. With this paint sprayer all of those issues went out the window. It was very easy to setup initially and was super easy to get it loaded and primed and ready to spray. The first project I used it on was a bunch of doors throughout a home. In the past I had tried to spray them to only end up with runs in the paint and problems on the edges of getting them covered with paint without it being too thick. So I had resorted to painting doors by hand and that is time consuming when they are 6 panel doors with a wood grain finish. I used my new sprayer and was instantly amazed about how easy it was. It sprayed very evenly and allowed me to get paint into all of the crevices in the door without any problems. I also ended up with not a single paint run on any door I painted. Another problem with most sprayers is the cleanup. That is not the case with this sprayer. It was very easy to cleanup and make sure that everything was absolutely clean before putting it away. Overall this is a great paint sprayer and I am proud to have it as part of my painting arsenal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect performance! What a great paint sprayer this is! I am impressed with the ease of use, clean up and all the features. Wonderful product. Can’t wait to find more projects to use it on. I painted a small rocker and it was so much nicer then using a brush. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive sprayer delivers good results on first I recently obtained a Control Pro 170. I have years of experience using compressor driven spray guns and also own a Wagner Flexio 890 HVLP system that I’ve used hundreds of times but I had never tried a high- pressure spray unit before. This was a first for me and I was anxious to try it. The unit I received arrived by package service. The box it was packed in was stout and provided good protection during transit. Documentation The documentation provided with the unit is well written. It uses minimal words to get the points across. The included drawings are especially good. Several things could be improved however: • The manual’s safety section is fairly typical. Some warnings in the section should be repeated in other appropriate areas. (Ex. Under cleaning the unit, repeat the warning about cleaning with halogenated hydrocarbon solvents.) • Each section includes a list of items needed, but the list could be more complete. (Ex. Under cleaning outlet valve, if an item must be torqued, then a torque wrench should really be listed in the list of needed tools). • A set of picks would be convenient when servicing the inlet valve. • O-ring sizes and materials should be included in the documentation. Assembly and familiarization Out of the box, the Control Pro 170 is easy to assemble. The real good thing about the assembly is that it is mostly intuitive. The assembled unit is lightweight and easy to move around. A recommendation to all users new to the product: Take the time to read the manual and familiarize yourself with the unit and procedures. It doesn’t take long and the time spent is paid back on first use. I didn’t particularly care for the assembly of the hose to the gun. Here one must rotate the gun to attach the hose; that’s awkward. It would have been preferred to have had a swivel connection on the hose to connect to the gun. Additionally, it would have been nice to have had the hose connect at the base of the grip rather than just behind the tip. It’s more of an irritation rather than an issue. The only issue I had during assembly is that one of the tool box access doors would not lock. This isn’t a big deal but should be looked at. Wording on the PRIME/SPRAY knob can’t be easily read because knob and lettering are all the same color. It’s a minor thing only since the knob has an included pointer. This only has an affect during unit familiarization. Recommendations to manufacturer: For safety, it would be nice to place a sticker on the unit showing the depressurization procedure. The graphics as shown on page 9 of the manual are sufficient for this. First Use Prior to first use, I familiarized myself with the unit and procedures. I operated the unit using water as the spray material. Straight away, one of the first things I noticed about he unit is that it had very little vibration and it stayed where it was placed, even on prime. When the unit was in spray mode, it was very quiet. I had read a few comments regarding difficulties with priming the unit, however, in my experience, the unit primed exactly as stated in the book. No difficulties. On the first job, I sprayed a medium sized closet space with uncut drywall PVA. This included the ceiling and wall. I anticipated that cleanup could be a bit messy so working on a tarp outside of the spray area, I put the bucket of the PVA inside of a larger bucket. I then placed the unit above this. By setting up like this, I could disconnect the suction hose from the unit at the end of the job and allow it to stay in the bucket without making a mess while I moved everything to the cleanup area. Not very eloquent, but it worked. The length of hose provided is more than sufficient to handle any job either interior or exterior on my house. What I really liked is that I didn’t have to carry the paint supply with me. That can get so tiring when using a gun/cup system while working off of a ladder. While spraying, I noticed the following: • The manufacturer’s claim of significantly less overspray is absolutely true. I can easily compare the results from the Control Pro 170 to what I would expect from my other systems. • The quality of the coverage and overall job is much better than with other systems I have used. • The time to spray is greatly reduced compared to the other systems. During the job, I lost prime two times. It was not issue at all. I depressed the pusher stem a few times then switched to PRIME for a few seconds then back to SPRAY. Note: I was not able to recover prime until I depressed the pusher stem. Since I was painting the ceiling, it would have been nice to have had a tip extender. Even though these are listed in the book with part numbers, I have not been able to locate one either online or in a store that carries the Control Pro 170. The product I was spraying required a control setting no greater than 1. I was somewhat concerned because I ended up spraying more product than I had budgeted. After looking at the problem, I found several reasons for this: One reason was related to the space, another reason was related to the user (me) and a third was related to the spray unit. The unit was actually putting out more product than I had intended, even at a setting of 1. I stopped the job about half way through and found a position on the control knob midway between 0 and 1 where the unit appeared to put out less. I finished the job on this setting and used a much more reasonable volume of product. Recommendations to manufacturer: I would like to see more low flow control. For the average DIY guy, the paint projects he/she does usually don’t have the same time constraints as those of the professional. Since paint isn’t exactly cheap, having some lower flow rate options will allow the user to balance between time and economics. Cleanup No surprise here, I thought cleanup may be a bit messy, and I wasn’t disappointed. However, this was my first time actually cleaning up the system so this was to be expected. Like all systems, cleanup will get faster and easier as the user gets more experienced with it. On a positive note, cleanup was not difficult at all especially since I had sprayed a water-based product. The procedures as listed in the book work fine. Overall impression: This unit shows a lot of promise and delivers good results. I’m actually quite impressed. This particular spray unit I believe is better suited for larger jobs. Any job where walls will be painted would be that job. Painting multiple doors at one time would also be a good job. A small job such as painting a single door casing/frame would be finished in minutes and be a better candidate for a gun and cup type system. I have an upcoming job in the near future and hope to verify that I have my flow issue resolved. I am just as anxious to try the unit on this job as I was on the first job. It’s one of the few paint projects I’m looking forward to. Pending outcome of that job, I rate this unit a 4 out of 5. Well done!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from HEA airless I received an HEA airless as a test product. I have used a lot of different brand sprayers. This sprayer is very simple to use and set up. The trigger is smooth on and off. Lays paint very smooth. It is very light weight. Easy to carry and easy to move. Only drawback, there is not a swivel between the gun and hose. Overall it's a great sprayer.

I`m a carpenter that has done my share of painting with a brush & roller. This fall I`m repairing a log cabin &.wondering if the CP 170 can handle staining a 26` X 36` two story log cabin or will the stain be too thin & require back brushing.

Asked by: Will the Thrill
The Control Pro 170 is up to that task as long as the stain requires a .017" tip or smaller. As far as back brushing, we can't say. It depends on the materials and conditions. For more help call us at 1-800-328-8251.

Can I thin the paints with Floetrol and Penetrol in these Sprayers?

Asked by: MrHoodoo
You can, but Floetrol and Penetrol are not thinners. They are an additive that breaks the surface tension of the paint, which helps it to level faster and easier. They're called a flow agent, because they also help the material flow through the gun easier and then flow out level on the project. For any water based material, water is the only thinner. In oil based materials we suggest only using mineral spirits in the sprayer for thinning and cleanup. Anything harsher can cause damage. For more help call us at 1-800-328-8251.

Most of the paints I am looking at using state 2000 PSI .017-.021" Tip, would this gun even be able to push the paint being that it's maximum operating PSI is only 1600 PSI?

Asked by: MrHoodoo
Yes, the HEA is a new technology. At 1600 psi there is 55% less overspray created. Keep in mind the Control Pro 170 can use a .017" maximum. The paint says that is the absolute smallest that would work. The Control Pro 190 can use a .019" maximum, which would do a better job with thick paint like you are using. Call for a discussion at 1-800-328-8251.

I have a Control Pro 170 and used it to paint interior doors. The paint flowed out of the gun so quickly that as fast as I could move it still went on so fast that the running made a mess of the job. It went through a gallon of paint in less than 5 minute

I will be painting with Sherwin Williams Direct to Metal alkyd enamel. Is there any reason I can’t use this Control Pro 170 for the job? And what size tip?

Asked by: Guffeyguy
The Control Pro 170 can only use a tip up to .017". Sherwin Williams says a .019" tip is required for their Direct to Metal paint. You'll need to get the Control Pro 190 to have that tip size ability.
