2 Nozzles

Wagner-Flexio-890-Sprayer-Review

You will get two nozzles with your Wagner Flexio 890. When you are painting widser projects like walls, siding or decking you will want to use the iSpray nozzle. This nozzle provides the perfect wide pattern of paint without an overlap that looks unprofessional.

When you are painting smaller projects or narrow projects you will save paint and improve your finish by using the detail nozzle instead of the iSpray nozzle. The detail nozzle allows for a narrow paint width so you do not ove3r-spray the object or area.

Sprays Un-Thinned Paints and Stains

This sprayer will allow you to spray un-thinned paints and stains directly from the paint can. You can spray enamels, primers, 2 in 1 paints that have primers included, latex paints and more without thinning them.

This allows you to get a thicker coat of paint on with each application so you can finish your work with fewer applications.

Lightweight Handle and Cup

The handle and cup are the only portion of the paint sprayer that you have to hold while you are working and together the handle and cup only weigh one and one half pounds. You will be able to paint for longer periods of time because you will have less arm strain or fatigue.

This lightweight handle and cup are attached to the 11 ½ foot flexible hose that supplies the air power to spray the paint. This hose will allow you to have 23 feet of working space around the turbine.

Convenient Storage

The Turbine base is a convenient storage case that the hose, gun, nozzles, and all components can fit into. Your tools will be easy to locate and easy to keep free of dust when they are not in use.

The storage case has a convenient handle on top of the case that helps you when you are transporting the case from the storage location to the work location.

Easy to Clean

This unit is a snap to clean up. The only portions of the unit that comes into contact with the paint materials is the gun and cup that you hold in your hand. You simply detach the gun from the flexible hose and clean the gun and the cup with clean water, or with mineral spirits if you are using an oil based product.

Once you have dried everything you are ready to put everything back into the convenient storage compartments and put the tool away. The next time you are ready to paint the device will be ready to use.

Easy to Reach Controls

The power switch and controls are conveniently positioned on the spray gun that you hold in your hand so you can reach them without returning to the turbine. This convenience saves a lot of time and a lot of steps during the work day.

If you see that you need to make a pressure adjustment the control knob is right in your hand.
