Topic tags/keywords: sprayer

I just saw this in a trade magazine. On the Sherwin Williams site it says it was released February 2010.

Have you seen this or had any experience with it? I notice that lacquer is not listed in the products it will shoot.

Here’s a picture.

I do not see why it wouldn’t spray lacquer based on the other types of paint it will spray. Have not seen or used it. It looks like a standard airless tip.

Lee –
I know nothing about the product nor had I heard of until you mentioned it.

However that does not deter me from venturing a guess or two:

1. This seems to be a consumer product, although it could be used commercially and might be good for cabinet installers in the field. As a consumer product lacquer may be less popular than the other finish products.

2. My old airless equipment, as well as the HVLP unit that I now use always come with two tips for the gun as lacquer requires the smaller of the two.

At the big blue box you can see the entire lineup from Graco – from HVLP to buzz gun to airless!

I have the Graco 3900 and I have shot poly and lacquer too. It has a great liquid to air ratio that you save a ton on what is needed to cover the same surface. The sprayer is really easy to get used to and even easier to clean up. I would take a look at it since now Graco is selling under a separate name for an infomercial sprayer too (Graco 2900 I think). Overall a great product line.

I stopped by the local SW store today and chatted about this tool. It’s been out a while. It comes with two tips, but does not shoot lacquer. Retail is about $500 if I recall correctly. Shortly they’ll be out with a new model that does shoot lacquer. They didn’t have one in stock but I brought back a flashy brochure.

This one gives you about 5 hours on the LiOn battery, Two tips, two batteries charger, etc come in the kit. There are liners for the cup included too.

I am not sure where it fits in the consumer – professional spectrum, but it was written up in a trade magazine—CWB or one of those.

I have a graco st 390. I really like the tips and think this portable battery operated sprayer would be ideal for smaller projects. I wonder why you cant spray lacquer?
