I am looking at buying my first sprayer. I have used the Earlex Spray Station but I wanted something more robust and I have adopted the buy once, cry once motto! I am rebuilding my workshop thanks to a tornado in 2013 and I would like the sprayer to be able to paint a 3 car garage workshop and utility shed. I won’t use latex much, but I would like the ability from time to time. I am also considering Apollo sprayers but am leaning toward Fuji. I sincerely appreciate any feedback from those who are familiar. Thank you!

In my experience, right tool for the job, is especially true when it comes to sprayers. I broke down and purchased a stand alone paint sprayer for doing paints and a hvlp for doing lacquer finishes. It cost me a little more, but now I don’t have to worry about thinning paint, having latex show up in my finish cause I missed getting it completely clean or whatever. I’ve been using that hvlp sprayer from Rockler. It’s “ok” for lacquer, I’d never try and put latex through it. One of those Fuji’s is on my wish list.

As a contractor and wood shop owner of many years,I tend to agree that house painting is usually done with Airless equipment and Hvlp’s are much better for shop use.Unless you’re going to be painting with Latex on a regular basis just rent an Airless system for you interior and exterior paint work,in my area they are only about $45 a day.
