I run 150 on my 640, no problems at that length. I use small tips though, 413 for body, 311 for eaves. You will never need 200, and when I go to a bigger tip like 519, I go down to 100'.I was looking at a Titan 640. If I use HEA tips, how much hose could I reasonably use?
Bigger pumps can also push that material through 200ft+ and up a second or third floor. A 640 might be able to handle 150ft but as soon as you go vertical... its a lot for that pump to handle.Leave the pump in the garage, or in apartment buildings. Long hoses do come in handy.
Thanks for the info!!I run 150 on my 640, no problems at that length. I use small tips though, 413 for body, 311 for eaves. You will never need 200, and when I go to a bigger tip like 519, I go down to 100'.
I mostly do residential painting. I am looking for a machine to handle 150' to 200' of hose, and spray primers, latex, etc.
How powerful of a machine do I need for this?
Anything above a homeowner pump to push 200 ft of hose to 2nd+ story? No. If you want good performance and want your pump to last, go for a 1095 or if you can afford it a 1595. You never regret bigger...but budget is an issue. SW will finance that 1595 for you for a year most likely with no interest. We do have probably 25 440's and 395's...but they're 50' of 3/8" hose and no big tips. They're good little pumps...but only for what they're meant for.Titan is not the way. Graco parts are everywhere and they have the top quality metals designed (patented) for pumps. For residential, I'd say anything above the Magnum homeowner level. IT's a budget thing after that.
