I haven't seen or used the Wooster roller but did have a roller setup for my Graco Airless. On a repaint I could paint just as fast with a good lambs wool cover than with the roller. Cleaning could be a time issue.
I could see where it would be effective in industrial tiltup walls though. I guess it depends on the job. I use Wooster's brushes, roller frames, poles and other products and am pleased. Let us know if you use one.
We are using one today in a Commercial building. It is great. It is not like the Graco. Paint comes out of tubes that drips onto the roller covers. We don't clean out the tubes, just throw them away when the day is done. I think that we are around double the production rate using this over using pans and 18's. There are only certain places that using it makes sense. We are on big, straight block walls. Can't beat it.
I have used this roller before for interior painting jobs, it works really really nice but you should only try to use it on large walls and/or homes with only 1 color throughout. Otherwise you can do it faster with a lambswool roller. I have not used it on anything exterior yet, not sure how good it would work on tilt-up walls.
