Default Sprayer Selection guidance

I've been reading the forums quite a bit before I posted.

My question is this.

I'm looking at purchasing either an airless and adding AAA to it, buying An AAA outright, or going HVLP. Seems the general consensus is a 395 at a minimum. I've read a few people add the Fflp tips and short hose for FF work. I also like the idea of a 490 with a brushless motor. As far as hvlp goes, I've been looking into Fuji and Apollo although graco and titan seem to be a little more common with most painters, I don't entirely feel I'm getting my money's worth as these units are typically 3-500 higher than competitors.

I need some guidance in sprayer selection as my work is very balanced in all of the areas below and I don't really do just one thing.

Services that are currently offered are fence and pergola refinishing, exterior refinishing, interior walls and trim, cabinets and stairs, and hardwood floor refinishing, bathroom and kitchen remodels. Currently all done by sub-contractors. Looking to move in house.

I know airless covers pretty much everything except stairs and cabinets unless someone with a fflp and short hose setup wants to chime in.

I'm not planning on bidding every job and doing it myself at this point, I just want to get myself out of a bind in case My subs are busy or don't show up when they're supposed to, or aren't available.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
