That one will not embed. At least I tried.

Also, if you post a video, participate in the discussion. I consider people who post videos and photos and run to be limited value drive by posters who probably are more interested in driving up view counts than participating in the community here.

And if someone posts a video, it would be nice to engage in a semi-on topic conversation that focuses on what the video is about.

So, I'd like to know:

* Will it continue to do so with decent maintenance?

I like the concept of the machine but don't want to buy an expensive toy that will be a disappointment and end up collecting dust on a shelf somewhere.

Equivalent to a 390, no. Even with an FF tip, no. They make 2 models of PS2, a Fine Finish and a Regular paint sprayer just so everyone knows.

1.) Will it produce a nice even pattern etc. Yes, as long as the material doesn't run low, sometimes below the half way point on thick materials. If you have the motor up there, it will run through material pretty quick. Also if the battery runs low you'll have issues producing that even spray pattern. If the material isn't strained it also has a tendency to spit once in awhile and you have to reverse the tip to clear just like a regular gun, sometimes a bit more often than a regular gun though.

2.) Maintenance is key to anything.

Just take that into consideration when buying.

Good luck.

I think the machine is great, not knocking it at all, but it comes with its own quirks.

I have one PS first generation and three of the PS2's. I haven't had any problems laying down a very smooth finish. The only spitting that occurs with it is if the paint builds up at the tip and guard. When this happens there is a small to medium spit when first triggered on each pass. It is great little sprayer if you take your time and don't try to rush it. I've painted everything from exterior trim in latex to oil on doors and cabinets. The 20v lithium ion battery does a great job of coming to a dead stop when drained of power, so the spray pattern just stops like you let off the trigger. If a person takes the time to learn how the unit acts, and use it for what it's intended for, it's one fine little machine.

This version is better for gravity feed.( spray inverted ) This pot system is also the only way to spray a quart that is not HVLP. Don't expect miracles ; it is exactly what it advertises; a cordless sprayer. For a portable unit it exceeds my expectations. It's designed for small amounts of material or 2 doors etc. big drawback: no hook mount for climbing ladders. The HD has a loop for climbing but I will not buy a 2k portable.

Default Pro shot 2

I bought the pro shot 2 about 18 months ago. I have mixed feelings about it. It does take as long as an regular airless to clean. It does spit. There is a learning curve on it. Pressure needs to up set high to get decent results. I bought the backpack hoping to spray out more than a pint. However I broke a part when trying to use it the first time. I went to the S.W. store to try to order the part. They said they did not have a S.W. part number for it even though there was a Grace part number for it. That was 5 months ago. My S.W. rep keeps promising to help create a S.W. part number for it so I can order it. Poor service from S.W.
Oh, and I just got a letter from Graco saying my battery may blow up and there are recalling many of the batteries that were shipped.
It's a tool with limits. There is place for it. You will have to decide if it's worth the money.

I dont like it one bit. I think this video was edited to heck! This tool reminds me of all the crappy Wagner sprayers. My local SW does not even carry this thing anymore.

I used it a couple times DID NOT like at all first the tips&body all one so that's $$ you have to keep in mind it is not HVLP. I think it's ok if all you paint is fences and dog houses. Other it does . Hold doors open pretty sweet graco door stop.
