Default Minimum sprayer for elastomeric

What would be the realistic minimum size of sprayer to push elastomeric?


ps...anyone have one for sale?

I don't think I would go any smaller than a Graco 190.

My mistake, I have the 395, meant to write 695.

I would prefer to keep it to Graco, but not mandatory.

Not interested in a gas powered, I'm not a high production guy.

I'm serious if someone has a 695 or comparable feel free to PM me...thanks.




gotta to to work.....

I feel like we go through similar ideas/feelings man! I went through the "must have a sprayer for elastomeric" period a few months ago, but realized that almost no one has requested it, and the times in which I will actually use it are minimal: cutting and rolling it will suffice.

We use speeflo 6900 8900 and the 12000 I always recommend buying the biggest sprayer that you can afford. You can always turn the pressure down.

Right, but then again, simply moving it around can be a PITA. If hes not doing a ton of elasto/dryfall having a giant heavy pump may turn into an expensive dust collector. I say get the smallest big pump....if that makes sense

I also find that Elasto-wall needs much smaller tip requirements than most elastomerics as well, so you can get away with a smaller pump. The stuff is like pudding, but I've thrown it through some pretty small machines with success.

The 6900 can be moved easily by one person.

Save for the 'take care of pregnant wife' feelings.

I have two jobs pending that would justify buying a used one if I can find one.

I have the airlessco 690 and the shop I use to work for ran graco 695 for most of their commercial paint. We did a head to head test of the 2 and really couldn't tell any difference between the 2.

I run the speeflo atlas 30:1 it is compared to the 6900 speeflo now.

Just picked up a rock catcher for the 690 and the tech tells me the graco is much better of a spray rig than the airlessco.

The tech I take my machines to says he would run elasto through the graco but not the airlessco. to use my speeflo instead.

He also said I could run elasto through the
airlessco but not any great quantity.

So my final answer graco 695 speeflo 6900

Graco 795 but the Graco 1095 is a much better choice as it can easily push block fillers as well.
