I believe they are the same pump. I see Mr.Fixit is on and can tell you more than me.

The Nova is a label that they slapped on it for SW. Still a 395.

The Ultra 395 has digital pressure control, the 395 st pro has the Bourdon tube with an optical eye for measuring pressure (I think it still used that system anyway).

The Ultra probably has .1 gpm more capacity, and runs 3300 psi max instead of the older 3000 psi max. The Ultra will keep a slightly smaller "dead band" range of pressure. (But not as small a dead band as Graco claims--at least on my pressure gauge).

The Ultra has the newer pump with allegedly longer lasting packings.

Put a 100 ft hose on both, stick the wands in your choice of latex paint, and you won't be able to tell the diff when the material comes out the gun.......

If the 395 st is doing the job, I sure wouldn't retire it and drop $800 on a new airless of the same capacity........

Stick with the Graco. The Ultra 395 is an outstanding machine. Stay away from the Titan. We do a ton of machine repairs and it seems almost every repair requires a new rod along with the normal packings in the Titans.

395 st pro does not have a bourdon tube it has a small circuit board. either machine is interchangeable when spraying they have pretty much the same capacity ( gpm). the biggest difference between the Titan and the Graco is the Titan does not have a cylinder or sleeve to wear out as do the Graco's.

worst case repair for a Titan is piston and packings for Graco piston,packings and sleeve or cylinder

I was also told for about $100 I can buy the digital display and just "plug" it in.
I plan to do that later when I get the second fluid section through the Advantage program....You can do it up to 6 months from purchase date.
Great deal imo!
