Important Features of Wanger Flexio 200 HVLP Sprayer

iSpray Nozzle

The iSpray nozzle is a Wagner design that helps you paint walls and siding with less overspray so you can achieve a professional looking finish. This nozzle will allow you to paint with confidence.

Lock n Go Split Gun Design

The lock n go split gun design allows you to clean your equipment faster and more thoroughly. There are only five parts to separate and clean so you will easily finish the cleaning in no more than five minutes.

No job is complete until the cleaning is done, and tools that are properly cleaned have longer life expectancies than tools that are not properly cleaned.

Adjustable Spray Shape

You can adjust the spray pattern of the gun by adjusting the air cap position.

To spray in an up and down pattern you need to turn the air cap ears in a horizontal position.

To spray paint in a side to side motion you need to turn the air cap ears in a vertical pattern.

One and a Half Quart Paint Cup

The one and a half quart paint cup will provide you with enough paint material to paint an area that measures 10 foot by 12 foot. You have no hoses to get tangled so you can use this spray paint gun easily on ladders, and when you have to turn the sprayer to reach all of the nooks and crannies or cracks and crevices of a remodeling project.

The cup holds your paint so the repositioning of the spray paint gun is easier. The cup is much lighter than a gallon of paint or a five gallon bucket of paint is.

The cup has a wide mouth that is easy to fill and refill. It is also easy to pour the paint back into another container if you do not use all of the paint during your project. This means that the unit can save you money by saving you from having high amounts of wasted material.

Durable Plastic Construction

The paint sprayer is crafted from durable plastic materials that help to keep the weight of the spray paint gun lower. The heavy duty plastic materials are high quality and can withstand the pressures that painting puts on this type of equipment, without putting the strain on your arms while you work.

The plastic materials are easy to clean with warm soapy water. You should store these items where they are not subjected to long periods of bright sunlight. The ultra violet rays of the sun can cause plastic materials to fade in color and to dry so that the plastic is easy to break.

The plastic should not be subjected to freezing temperatures due to the damages freezing can do to plastic materials.

Easy to Maneuver

This is a fantastic spray paint apparatus if you refurbish furniture. The gun is lightweight and can be easily manipulated so that you can spray the furniture piece from every angle. It is light enough to not cause any strain so you can paint longer, and everyone can easily hold the unit.

Quiet Operation

This spray paint gun is very quiet while it is being operated. The quietness of the device will allow you to use it at any time you wish without disturbing your neighbors or other residents of the home.

Spray paint guns that have large motors or that require an air compressor to work are generally loud, and many apartment complexes and neighborhood committees have rules that stop you from using these noisier items before nine in the morning or after 7 in the evening. This tool is quiet and is not likely to disturb your neighbors any more than your blender does.

Suggested Uses

This paint sprayer is recommended for small projects that a homeowner or do it yourself enthusiast would do. It is not recommended for commercial or professional use.

It can be used to paint walls and interior portions of the home. You can expect to paint a 10 foot x 12 foot area with each paint cup refill.

The Wagner Flexio 2000 is recommended for outdoor projects like deck staining and fence painting. You can paint the exterior of your home using this painting apparatus.

This is the perfect spray paint gun for small craft projects and certain furniture refurbishing projects.

Pro's

  • Sprays both thick and thin materials
  • List Numbered settings to help you make proper adjustments according to the material you are using
  • Adjustable spray width lever
  • Does not require an air compressor

Con's

  • Exterior paints require a lot of thinning in order for the paint sprayer to be able to dispense them, so you may have to apply a greater number of coatings of paint to achieve your desired finish

Answers more than you need

Do you need an air compressor with this paint spraying unit?

No you do not. This is an electric paint spraying gun that can be worked independently without the aid of an air compressor. That means that you can paint quieter and will not disturb your neighbors if you decide to start early or work late.

Will this sprayer spray un-thinned materials?

The majority of paints that you would use on either the interior or the exterior of your home will need to be thinned before the spray paint gun will be able to dispense them properly. Most stains and lacquers are already thin enough to be properly dispensed without additional thinning.

Can I use any size nozzle that I want with this spray paint gun?

No you will need to use smaller nozzle sizes when using this spray paint equipment. You probably will not want to get a nozzle that is any larger than a 3.0mm

Final word

This paint sprayer is ideal for the majority of homeowners. Most homeowners only take on painting projects once or twice a year. This spray paint gun is perfect for light painting schedules like that.

If you are looking for a spray paint gun that can do small craft projects, and be used for light painting around your home then this is a good choice. This is not the ideal paint spraying equipment for professional painters or handymen that do painting to make extra money.

This sprayer is light and can be used by men, women and even children if the children are properly supervised while they are using the device.
