Hi,

Recently bought a Wagner control pro 350m airless paint sprayer 520w and did an exterior job 30 meters wall (concrete blocks) very happy with the results.
For this first project I used a 517 tip.

My question is: Would like to do some more finer/delicate work using the Wagner control pro like:
  • Doors
  • Door posts
  • Cabinets

Will need to buy other tips "Wagner Tip - HEA Control Pro 211" & filters XS-S Red.

Anyone on this forum who has experience using the above and maybe has some useful tips?

Your advice is more then welcome,

Rick

You CAN.... You're gonna have a bad time using fine finish tips without a manifold filter though, but, it will apply the paint. It could also break down on you at any given time, or the gun could give out and start spitting, cuz its a cheapo.

Or the motor could catch on fire like my graco x17

Hi thanks for your reply can I ask what do you mean with:
"without a manifold filter"
Is that something I can add or?

Thanks

Most professional spray pumps have a first stage filter before paint gets to the gun. They also have better motors, stainless steel internals opposed to just hardened steel, and better packings and pressure control.... Etc etc...

All said and done the home owner grade pumps are designed to spray 50-100 gallons then throw them away. However even the lowest end professional grade pumps will last 10+years

Okay get what your saying here,

This Wagner control pro 350m airless paint sprayer 520w has 2 filters
  • Suction hose filter that goes into the paint bucket
  • And one on the gun it self (different grades regarding the used tip )

Anyway thanks for the replies gonna try it out and see.

The suction hose filter isnt really a filter. Its a screen.

The gun filter will work, but it will fill up really quick without an inline manifold filter. Its not worth buying an inline filter you can put on. They are like $100.

My old spraytech pump doesnt have a manifold filter, and it was a paint in the ass, although I used it for fifteen years.
