Purdy makes one of the best rollers for every type of job. I used these for priming and painting the interior of my home and it worked really well on smooth drywall and older uneven plaster walls and ceilings in my home. They really do make quality products and got this one at a bargain at Overstock. Thank you.
This is by far the easiest way to tackle paint jobs you would normally use the manual roller. To start it is extremely easy to set up. The back guard helps against splatter particularly when doing ceiling work. The controls are either used for manual or power which is battery operated to extract paint from your paint can. A couple things you need to be aware of when setting up. Ensure to have petroleum jelly to grease up the areas suggested in the instruction pamphlet for easy movement and secondly start with a bucket of water to release the air through the tube. I used a small bucket that was equivalent to a gallon bucket of paint. Place the black top with extraction tube to ensure I could get liquid to fill the tube. I tried it twice and it worked. Also you may want to use a cup of water with you paint to thin it out. Other than that a great tool to have. Easy to clean. No worries about washing and cleaning paint pans.
This is the second one I have owned. The first was stolen and when it came time to repaint I had to search for another one. There is a knack to using so you have to practice a little. Personally I didn't like the trim roller. My first unit had a trim pad and I liked it better. Cleanup is a bit time consuming. Allow yourself at least 30 minutes of clean up time to properly clean the machine. I think it does a quality job and not having to go back and forth to a paint pan makes less of a mess.
