Sam Elliott: I just purchased this unit from HD for $140, but I wasn't sure if I want to keep it, however, this video certainly helped. I plan to keep it since I plan to use it for my 2 homes, I agree that it isn't the best thing out there. Thanks for the vid.
mark dennis: I am not an expert either. This airless sprayer does seem to do everything that I need for it to do. If you plan to use one daily as your main income, you may want to invest in a commercial grade airless sprayer.
mini020107: can you use regular paint or you need special airless paint. im think to paint my house with valspar semi gloss paint with primer.
rockethead555: Hello whats the best brand airless painter (price vs quality) u recommend for the home owner and/or the professional painter? would this Ryobi fit the bill ? how would you rate the other ones say Wagner, Titan etc Im not an expert at painting .. good Video, Regards
Chris Verrico: thanks
mark dennis: There are a lot of tricks, but to help you out, you blend it in by starting your arm moving before you spray the paint and keep your arm moving after you stop. This causes the paint to flow without having an actual starting or stopping place. Hope this helps you out...
Chris Verrico: How do u spray without getting flashing or holidays or start and stop marks I'm so sick of old school brushing and rolling
Oscar Briceno: u never gonna get even coats if someone isnt backrolling...duh
mark dennis: Here is my thoughts: #1, if the paint is too thin, it will run down the wall easier than when it is thick. #2, with the pressure on full, it will be spraying out the maximum amount of paint, which can also cause streaks because there is too much paint, and #3, you could be using too large of a tip for the paint you are using. The last one isn't as likely because latex is pretty thick, however, you are thinning it, so, it could be a possibility. Thinning may be your only problem. Hope this helps!
eli93402: I have the same prayer (it's the green model but I'm pretty sure its the same) and I'm having trouble getting an even coat. I'm using latex paint thats been thinned down and the sprayer is on full pressure. I use a consistent motion and over lap each spray by 50%, but when light hits the walls just right you can see streaks. It's really frustrating having to paint the walls multiple times trying to get rid of the streaks. Any tips? I'm about to give up on the sprayer and just roll everything.
andresstatestreet: Great videos. Thx
mark dennis: Sure. I am painting my pole barn with it in about a month and I will put out a video on it when I do. I am sure you are going to like yours. I really like mine...
Goofy Goof: Cool, Watched the videos. I just ordered one myself. Looks like I got a good Sprayer.
Thanks for the info. in the videos.
mark dennis: Sorry I somehow missed your post till now. A sprayer is definitely the way to go. I use a 415 or a 515 for just about everything. It is recommended that you use a .015 to .017 for latex and a .017 to .019 for oil base primers. I use a 415 and a 515 for just about everything, but then I usually use latex. I hope this helps. I will be doing a post on my blog explaining tip sizes this weekend. Thanks for visiting,
maciverandy1: sure no prob!
mark dennis: I don't separate the hoses, but I did manage to figure out the process of using the waste bucket to save some of the otherwise wasted paint and to get rid of the watered down paint. It took me a couple of times to figure it out though. I'm slower than most... Thanks for sharing your knowledge with everyone!
maciverandy1: when he talks about the priming contamination he means the hose that is next to the main hose that pulls the paint. normally you want a "crap" bucket to spray all the contamination into. I actually keep these two hoses in different buckets for the whole spraying process. it also helps to have a bucket to spray all your waste in after you are done. spray the paint left in your line until you notice the water thinning the paint out and then spray the rest into the crap bucket.
maciverandy1: 5-17 or 5-15
