Going to throw my plug in there too. One of my guys groaned, when I stuck one in the bucket. But he was a happy camper at cleanup time.

Sal, these things are great and they save time (which equals money) on cleanup. Yank it out, cut off the corner and squeeze excess paint back into a can, throw it in the trash.

It means you took a holiday when it came time to paint that spot.

Hey Dale,

check out the online video www.valleyproproducts.com.............I have a real slick way of squeezing the paint out of the liner. Thanks for the good report.........old dogs like me don't like to try new things either...I remember about 10 years ago my painting buddy asked me over the course of a year to try the 18's. I kept putting it off......it was one of those things when I finally got around to trying the 18 I thought "why didn't I try this sooner

I think somewhere in here I might have posted this, but its a good one so here it is again-
If you clean out the big rollers like I do- it's hard to spin them without spraying outside the sink. Get a 8" x 24 tin peice of duct and spin in that. You can literally spin into a gallon bucket with that.

Started using a 14" roller a couple years ago. Have to special order it from Wooster, but they also make an open frame for it so you can get into those corners nice and tight.

I like those too. I get an 18'' and cut it down if I don't have time to special order. Just make sure you defuzz the cut good.

You guys need one of these for cleaning 18's. Hook it to the hose and do something else fore a few minutes. Scroll down the link.

Sal,

That link ain't working. Need to re-post it.

I was the same way on using 18's. Just started using them 3-4 years ago.

I have the roller cleaner from Ogee paint. it's works well I keep it next to my laundry sink. I have found that if the rollers are soaked over night they come much cleaner when put through the roller cleaner...............

Allright guys, you've almost got me convinced.We really only use them on floors because it seems like quite the hassle compared to a 9 and a 5 gl bucket to carry around on the job and in your vehicle!Also most of our interiors are pretty tight with multiple colors. How are they on exterior stucco?
Convince me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Arron- try the 14 with the open (L) frames for your work. Like a 9" only more!
I use a Rubbermaid 14 g rough tote with 2 screens wired to fit for a bucket. Just as good as the big boy and they have a lid!

Aaron, if you already have an 18" setup, try it one time. Or have one guy use an 18 and one use a 9 on similar rooms, see who finishes first. The only thing you may have to get your crews used to is cutting in a little wider because the 18" can't get as close to the corners.

If you have a room that is really cut up (lots of windows and doors) it will be easier to use a 9. We use a 18" about 60-75% of the time.

Never used one on stucco, that's not popular around here. Have used it on a long run of EFIS and it worked well.

Yeah big A, I use to feel the same as you, but even I have come over to the dark side.

I know, I'm a hack, and a lowballer, but I have been reading this thread for awhile. I was using my power-roller (graco) today, and was thinking to myself,,, Yeah, tell me an 18" is faster than this,,, it just isn't, just isn't.

You already have an airless sitting on the job,,, How come you don't use a power-roller??

Seems like everytime I bring this up, nobody says anything,,,,

So, I guess my question is this,,, How come you guys HATE power-rollers???

I think it might be because there are a lot of repaint guy here and it is not really the best idea to drag hoses through an occupied home. Easier to just dip and roll.

Myself I just never have tried one. Send me one and i will give you my opinions.
