Graco Mark V. That's the only one that will help you do a level 5 finish. It takes practice technique and lots of patience.

Good luck!

Try a Graco Ultra 395,a Titan 440 or an Airlessco LP500. They are all great rigs to start out with. The Graco 695 is a good sized rig for most applications but will cost you around $2300.

I personally like to sick with Graco because they're main business is building hydraulics, and pumps, who else would make a better machine than someone who specializes in it?

Level five finish I think he is referring to is in the prime coat. USG and a few other manufacturers have a level Five primer. Need a drywall sprayer. The Mark V is a good recommendation.

OK, I've never had the opportunity to do that type of work.

USG Tuffhide or other level 5 primers must be applied between 15 and 20 mil wet, (conventional paint is between 3 to 5 mil) to do this your pump needs to have the guts to spray 1.1 gpm. with a 27 or larger orifice tip.
