Features of Wagner Power Painter Plus

OptimusTM Dual Tip

The Optimus dual tip is a new technology that allows the tip to form a vacuum between the spray jets. The benefits of that vacuum are an increased amount of paint particles can be drawn into the spray pattern the tip provides. The increased amount of paint particles will allow you get a more complete and uniform paint coverage with each pass of the spray gun.

This tip can also be rotated so you can spray in a horizontal pattern or a vertical pattern without causing drips, runs, and undo overspray.

Flexible Suction Tube

This flexible suction tube design allows you to hold the spray paint gun at any angle and still be able to spray a flawless pattern. Older guns without this technology limited you to holding the device in an upright position, or possibly turning the device at a 45 degree angle.

This spray painting gun can be held upright, upside down, lying on either side, or at any angle.

Adjustable Spray Lever

The adjustable spray lever on this device is labeled according to the products you will be using. Many devices allow you to adjust the spray so that you get the optimum paint flow. The difference between the paint flow adjustments on those devices and the paint flow adjustment on this device is the way the selections are numbered.

On most devices the paint flow adjustment is changed by turning the knob to a specific number. You have to know whether to make the flow speed adjustment higher or lower before you turn the knob.

On this innovative piece of equipment you make the paint flow adjustment by setting the selector on the type of paint material you will be using. The machine is calibrated to provide you with the proper adjustment for stain, or primer, and all you must do is turn the selection knob.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Does this paint sprayer life the paint directly from the paint container?

No this sprayer has a one quart paint container that holds the paint you are using. That is one of the reasons why this paint sprayer is recommended for use on medium size paint projects and not for larger paint projects.

Why is this paint sprayer not recommended for interior painting?

The main reason why the sprayer is not recommended for interior painting is the small size of the paint container cup. You will be limited to the amount of paint you have to use because the cup only holds one quart of material.

Your tips are also limited so the spray pattern produced by the sprayer may not be conducive to creating flawless finishes on interior painting projects.

Do I need an air compressor with this device?

No you do not have to connect the paint spraying apparatus to an external air compressor. It is powered by standard American 110 volt so you can plug it into your normal household outlets.
