Much appreciated guys! I’ll just stick with the titan 440.
The HVLP definitely wasn’t going to be cheap. It would have actually been more than the 440. I read a post here where a guy had said backrolling/brushing WAS required if airless staining but WASN’T necessary if sprayed with HVLP. That’s what got me to thinking about the HVLP.
So I think the 440 for the brunt of the staining and then I’ll buy a cordless unit for spindle work so I can have two guys staining at once.

Good luck with everything @HydroMan. Keep us posted on how things turn out with your 440 purchase.

Thank ya sir!
My wife and I got to talking and we’ve decided to actually start a separate business all together, one dedicated to painting. I spent 22 years as a senior systems analyst so I’m good with SEO and websites. I’m going to build a new website for the new business and market it heavily. In my city there is only one painting contractor even showing up and he’s on the 2nd page so, it’ll be simple for me to own the number one spot like my other business does. And 20 miles down the road is a major city so work is plentiful.

I’ve done lots of painting in my life and so has the wifey but we’ve still got lots to learn. But i can learn anything. So we’ll start off with the titan 440 and as business grows, so will the equipment.
So you guys are prolly gonna see a whole lot of me around here from now on. I’ve already got two large decks to stain, one aluminum sided house to paint, and two large chimneys on a milion $ home to paint and don’t even have the equipment yet lol.

One thing that could be somewhat problematic is switching between oil and Waterbased products. At some point you’ll want sprayers dedicated for Waterbased and oil based products.

Have you considered using a garden style sprayer for oil based stains for fences? It really cuts down on the overspray.

From the perspective of a manufacturer, have you talked to the manufacturer of the stain(s) that you use for recommendations on application of their product?

There's no question that the advice you've received from the forum is sound, but you should also ask the guys that make the products you apply for their opinion, just to be sure you are covering all the bases.

It's unlikely they would say anything different, but you need to be sure.

With proper cleaning between uses, is there an issue switching between products? I assumed painters did rhis regularly

Every stain I’ve used so far says it can be sprayed on.

The main problems I had was switching from paints/primers in my HVLP to stains and clear coats. White flecks would show up in the stain and clearcoats. I got a dedicated gun for the first two and another for the second to solve the issue. Suspect you would have similar issues if trying to get by with only one airless.

I have never had a problem going from oil to latex, I have done it the same day using the same pump and same hose and gun.

There always seems to come a time when you need another hose or pump and the only one available is the dedicated whatever rig so guess what happens, it goes right out in the field.
