I used this Fuji system to spray two projects so far. The water based clear coat went down smoother and smoother with each coat. The spray allowed me to clear corners without leaving or worrying about puddles. I also sprayed water based paint. This required a little thinning for both the primer and paint, but not much. The trickiest part of spraying was going slow enough to get a proper thickness coat. Properly sprayed coats required the lightest 400 grit sanding and a simple polish. Some paint backed up into the pressurizing tube but this part is easy enough to clean or replace. Took the gun apart several times and it went back together flawlessly each time. Used outdoors so the turbine did not seem too loud. Wish the turbine filters were a little bit better but fingers crossed haven't seen any dust in finish.
The sprayer worked well. Instructions were easy to understand. The detail finishing sprayer was very precise. The paint sprayer in general puts off a lot of overspray. Don't skip the prep work. The sprayer works best if you close off the room to be painted and completely cover up floors and anything else you don't want paint on. A project that would have taken 3-4 hours was cut down to one hour with this paint sprayer.
Its a great time saver, finished two coats of painting in 1500 sft. basement in two days.. with around 3 hours of actual painting time. Instructions are detailed and may seem scary at first but pretty intuitive once you've done it. There are some YouTube videos online to get familiar with painting technique. I'd suggest wearing a painting vapor proof mask as the regular masks don't really help and are not enough, specially when doing in a room or area that't not very open. Don't forget to prepare the area before starting to paint, like covering all items in the work area as paint vapors would be all over and would sit on each object.
Good spraying radius and ample amounts of power. I had no problem painting a ceiling with it. Sometimes the interior parts come loose and you will need to screw them back into place, an odd exercise because the sprayer comes preassembled. Do not overfill the paint cup, let it dry, and then try to remove the cup. I have been attempting to unscrew the cup for the past two days with no success. Always clean any excess paint off the top of the cup before putting the tool away, otherwise trying to remove the cup will frustrate the hell out of you! Lesson learned. Overall, I think it's a great product and would recommend it to someone who does not want to break their bank account on a paint sprayer.
