I think any 5 stage or higher should be good. Apollo has some nice ones, capspray, Graco. I like the Graco turbine for storage use. I do not love the Graco guns, but they spray well. I must over tighten them and bend the ears on the cup and the rim too easily for me, which then makes them prone to leaking.

While I don't own an HVLP myself, I have a good friend that loves his Titan 6 stage (I think it's the 115?) I've had a chance to play around with it and was impressed by the quality of the unit.

I have a 115 and yes it's the 6 stage. Get several different needle sets for different products!

I have a 5 stage Graco, and I will tell you I miss the Titan, the unit and the gun. I'm surprised you don't have one yet. There great, It is what keeps me from buying a proshot.

I have 1 out there.Forget what kind.Just wanting to get another. We do allot with just an airless & small tips as well but nothing like 1 of these.I just didn't want to drop $1,500 on 1 of these.I also like having the pressure pot though.It gives more flexibility.

The Graco 9.5 Turboforce is nice. The Apollo 1050VR is heavenly.

I have a CapSpray 9100 4 stage that is very nice. Anything 4 stage and above will spray what you need. I believe mine was about a grand. I do like the storage compartments of the Gracos.

The 9.5 is really a tough rig because it is enclosed basically in a toolbox. We own several hvlp and that is the one that I am most comfortable seeing go out in a van because it is tough. Some are made to be on the road, while others are better shop based.

dumb question here but what does each stage do? I have an old graco 1200 that I hardly use. I had it at least 10 years and it never failed to spray what I needed. Its only two stages. I use a 2qt pot with it.

Looking for some help. I'm using a capspray cs9100 and am having 2 problems. I am getting small hairs/fibers and some debris in the paint even though I'm using a fine mesh cone strainer and tack clothing the cabinets, doors and drawers. Also, I'm using B/M ironclad an impervo low luster oil and the finish seems...dull, inconsistent...as if it needs another coat, even though I've got several on there at this point. A coworker thinks too much thinner mite be the issue with the finish, but if I don't thin enuff, the paint orangepeels a bit. I have plenty of experience spraying latex enamels that finish great, but this is the first time I've painted an entire house (7500 sq ft) with oil. I sprayed the doors, doorframes, wainscot etc. with an airless and it looks good, but I want to give this customer a furniture quality finish on their cabs. Thanks in advance for any and all that mite have advice.

WoW i didn't know they still made the old vacuum that doesn't suck. I had a CS9100 long ago. Way to slow for anything I wanted to do.

Are you straining your paint before you thin or after ? I've had thinners that were really dirty. Could also being blowing fine dust up off floors etc?
