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.
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 product worked exceptionally well when first purchased! I used it to prime and paint modlings in 2 different rooms and they turned out terriffic! I had purchased the base model sprayer 2 years ago and that worked well for a bit then I could not even spray water through it without the piston seizing up. Last year I purchased the Power Painter Plus and used it a couple times cleaning it throughly!! now I am attempting to paint my Shed and I couldn't even get a 5 foot section sprayed without having the piston seize up. I attempted several times to clean/ oil the unit and it would work very briefly, a few seconds then stop again. I even tried to thin the Kilz primer and use the top coat only in case the paint was too thick but i still ended up with the same result. I am disgusted and not sure I will purchase another!
