Why buy a generator that runs on gas when you can get a gas airless for about the same price. Titan makes some nice entry level ones for about a grand.I could imagine on a job where you lose power, or you are on a budget from the get go, a generator can sell used for a few hundred bucks. If a person already has an electric airless, it probably is cheaper than buying a $3-5000 gas pump.
To try to answer, Alexander, hopefully it.doesn't take anything too expensive or special. One company I worked for used a generator and a large electric pump for it's secondary pump on commercial exteriors. It was nothing special.
Yeah I never use a generator to spray anyways. The company I'm with doesn't have a generator even. It just depends on someone else's reasons to do it. The op might be in the market for a generator though it seems.Why buy a generator that runs on gas when you can get a gas airless for about the same price.

A 695 is a decent sized rig. I'd suppose you could run a smaller one (440 or 395) from one of the suitcase generators. That's why I bought one, although I've yet to use it.The specs for a Graco 695 is a 5000w generator. If you only have one job that you need it on, go and rent one. If you have lots of jobs might be a good idea to purchase a gas powered machine. A 5000w generator is a pain to move around. Ours takes 2 guys to carry around.
