Default Spray Tip Recommendation

Hi.

I have a titan xt 420 with a 517 tip. Is this the best tip to be using or should I go with another? I am doing exterior spraying.

You should buy a couple different sizes and try them out. I find the 517 puts out way too much paint for my liking, but I know there are painters out there that use them...

The 517 is really to big for the 420, the rig struggles to keep up. But, the 515 is a perfect match for that particular rig doing exterior painting

Had to borrow a xt420 this week when my graco 390 crapped out...

There are different sizes for different applications, substrates, materials, weather, size , etc.

I keep a 211 313 415 517 219 as a staple and then a handful more.

Just wonder what you use the 219 for? Isn't that a lot of paint in a small space.

Well the specs say it will shoot .42 gpm so a 517 will be ok.

Gotta be quick. If youre moving that slow you might as well grab a brush

Actually, a 219 in one hand and a brush in the other and you can move very quick with a heavy paint when back rolling/brushing.

The 2-19 isn't for painting. It's for cutting the lids off of paint cans to make cut buckets.
