That's a Great Deal for a really good pump.

There are no metal to metal moving parts. These things last for ever and I think these pumps go for $1400 to $1500 new.

I have one and love it

Pat

I'm also wondering what graco is doing to these things if anything. I noticed the other day in my paint store that they now say "A division of Graco" on them now" I wonder if they are the same just with a different name?

Ncpaint knows these sprayers really good and I think Wolfgang is familiar with them as well

In another post here someone mentioned how the speeflos were so good because of the slow stroke sped. Airlessco is similar and has a slow stroke speed as well. I have an old one from before the models that included a filter, a 4100sl, and it is a tank.

Great pump. Depending on the HD, if it is a rental unit that is for sale, they have complete records on usage and maintenance done. I've seen better looking and maintained pumps from them than I have in most painter's inventory. BTW: from personal experience the 540 will outdo the 440 any day with a helluva lot less problems and stress on the pump.

I know everyone has their favorite brands/mfg's and we all feel a sort of loyalty to them - I was the same way. Once I started trying others is when I learned to be a little more open-minded.

So far no changes Well, they made the prime valve a bit smaller so it doesnt stick out the side as much. They dropped the "LP460". Now its LP500, and LP600. The SL810 is gone, but the SL1100 is the same.

They added a few "Graco" pumps to the Airlessco line. Anything below the LP500 is a relabeled Graco.

The Airlessco SP300 is the same as the Graco Magnum X9 just to name one.

So far im pretty impressed with the way Graco is handling the purchase of Airlessco. Usually when one company buys out another, its a death sentence, or they are just buying the name to relabel their stuff. Graco has done none of that. They streamlined the line, killed a couple of the in between size pumps, and kept the workhorses as is. Good job Graco

There are several LP540s on ebay right now. Many below $500.

I love my 540, well built pump.

NCPaint is correct no changes and after talking to Scott at Graco Tech Support he said they have no plans to change anytime soon. Be careful of buying it from Home Depot though as Wolfgang said they keep real good records and I have had 8 or 9 come into my shop in the last year and need a piston 1 or 3 weeks after purchase. they have it down pat I guess

I had one from HD with a blown board about a month after the guy bought it. I dont know how well the HD pumps get serviced by their techs.

I'm definitely not stating that all HD pumps are maintained well. I know some who bought from them and never a problem and one guy who got a lemon - though HD did exchange it for him though they had no obligation to. I have just had great luck and work out of all mine, with no down-time other than scheduled maintenance.

I pulled one of my oldest ones out of storage a couple of weeks ago after sitting well over a year with nothing run through it. Flushed it, put it in paint, and sprayed away. Worked like it always did.

I have one from HD that I bought for around $500 and I have run hundreds of gallons through it without issue. The only thing I have had happen is the ball on the check valve will stick if it's stored dry. Talked to an Airlessco guy and he said to just store it wet and I haven't had the problem since. The thing is a beast and for that price it has paid for itself more than 10 tmes over.
