I need to paint my pop corn ceiling and my bedrooms. I am looking at Wagner Airless Spray Gun, anyone here has used Wagner Flexio 2000 or Flexio 570? What are the difference? Thanks

if you are painting alot I'd go with this style.

Sometimes home depot has big sales on the graco ones.

This one was 160 a few months ago

You are much better off with the units Rand mentioned above, or a Titan Airless Sprayer as another choice. The Wagner unit is hit or miss at best, and can easily leave you disappointed or looking for a something better, or worse, something to finish halfway through the project.

I have a Wagner sprayer, garbage, and their warranty support stinks. Never get one again. I like the Graco Rand mentioned.

If you don't check out Harbor Freight you could be wasting a lot of money.

I did the expensive route the first time I painted the whole interior of my home.

The second time I did the HF route and the results were the same for about half the price.

There may be differences for sure but don't get caught up in useless details that won't affect the quality of the finished work. And believe me, I'm really picky when it comes to the finished product.

Me too . It will spray only the most watered down paint possible. Then itís as slow as a welfare bum looking for work ......and about as useless. I use it once in a while to supplement an irregular surface like pipes ect but even there itís pitiful. To do a whole ceiling in o e room would take 6-8 hours , forget it.
