Important Features of Wagner Flexio 570 Paint Sprayer

Lightweight Design

The manufacturer took the time to create a lightweight tool that would be as effective and efficient as the heavier metal tools of the same variety. This equipment is made of a durable high quality plastic that allows the paint sprayer to weigh just a little more than two pounds.

This lighter weight construction allows you to work longer with less muscle strain and fatigue. You get more work done because you do not get so tired so quick.

Fast paint applications

The iSpray nozzle allows you to apply a large amount of paint in a short amount of time. You can paint a 10’ x 12’ area in less than five minutes and get effective coverage. The 1 1.2 quart paint cup will hold enough paint to paint a 10’ x 12’ wall without being refilled.

This paint sprayer will allow you to finish painting projects ten times faster than you could finish them using a paint brush or roller to do the work.

Width Selection Control Knob

When you paint around your house you sometimes have to paint walls and large areas like ceilings or the exterior siding. These areas require you to have a wider pattern of paint being sprayed. The iSpray nozzle is designed for this kind of work but you also have a selection knob on the side of the paint gun that allows you to control the width of the paint spray.

Sometimes you are painting trim like window trim and facia boards with narrow pieces and you do not want a wide spray setting. You can select the narrow width setting and use the detail nozzle to easily be able to do this meticulous type of painting.

Adjustable Speed Turbine

Wagner Flexio 570 Adjustable Speed Turbine

The adjustable speed turbine makes it possible for you to spray un-thinned paints. You can also spray primer, mixed paints that are combinations of primer and paint, stain, varnish, and most other painting materials including latex and enamel paint.

The adjustable speed turbine can produce a slow air supply that allows you to paint thinner materials like stains without causing drips and runs. When you want to paint those thicker paints, primers, and coatings you need high speed air coming through the hose. This turbine effectively provides you with the air pressure you need to do the job perfectly.

This adjustable turbine is also the reason why you do not have to connect this tool to an air compressor to paint with it. The adjustable turbine does the work of an external compressor. It creates the air flow you need to force the paint material through the paint gun system and out into the air

Cleaning

This paint sprayer comes apart very easily. You do not need any special tools or wrenches to disassemble the sprayer. You should clean the paint off of each part of the sprayer individually so that you get the parts completely clean.

If you use a water based paint you can usually clean the paint off with just clear water if you clean the machine before the paint is allowed to harden. If the paint hardens on the pieces you may need to use warm soapy water and a soft bristled scrub brush to remove the paint residue and particles from the paint sprayer. After you use the soapy water be sure to rinse with clean water and then allow the pieces to air dry, or dry them with a towel prior to reassembling your sprayer.

If you use oil based paints in the sprayer you will more than likely have to use mineral spirits to clean away the oily residue when the job is finished. After the mineral spirits remove the paint you should wash with soapy water and then rinse with clean water. Dry all parts thoroughly.

Suggested Uses

This paint sprayer is a complete painting device. It allows you to paint indoor projects like walls, ceilings, trim, cabinets, door frames, craft items, and more with precision and great attention to detail. It has 2 nozzles that you can use depending on the size of the project you are taking on, and it has a width adjuster to make sure that you have the least amount of over-spray and over lapping layers of paint material.

This sprayer is ideal for using outdoors to paint fences, decks, siding, furniture, picnic tables and more. It can spray un-thinned paints, even paints that have the primer mixed into them. This feature allows you to apply a thick and even coat of paint with each application. Many projects can be finished with just one application of paint because of this feature. You spend less time working and more time enjoying the fruits of your labor when you use this too.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I paint an entire room with just one container of paint?

The paint container will hold about 1 and ½ quarts of painting material. This amount of paint is enough to cover an area that measures ten foot by twelve foot. You will probably have to refill the paint container at least once if you are painting an entire room.

Can I use this sprayer to apply oil based paint?

Yes this sprayer can be used to apply oil based paints and exterior grade paints. The high speed of the adjustable turbine allows you to use those paints and most of the time you will not have to thin the paint prior to application. Be sure that you clean the sprayer using mineral spirits after you use an oil based product in it. Follow your manufacturer’s instructions for this cleaning.

What is the difference between Wagner Flexio 570 and 590?

Main difference is in speed rate. Wagner Flexio 590 is capable of spraying 8 gallons/hour and Wagner Flexio 570 speed rate is 7.2 gallons/hour.

Final Word

If you have property then you probably have to do some painting from time to time. You do not have to have a paint sprayer to paint, people have been applying paint, stain and varnish with brushes and rollers for years, but if you have a paint sprayer like the Wagner Flexio 570 you can paint ten times faster.

Cleaning the parts of the Wagner Flexio 570 is much easier than trying to clean up paint brushes and rollers. The cleaning goes faster, the painting goes faster, you get to go play faster.
