Hi everyone
I am looking for a best airless paint sprayer for my home and basic outdoor jobs. My budget is no more than 500$, Can anyone help me suggesting best recommend for me? whats about Wagnor?

Thanks, best regards

In the past, Wagner earned a well deserved reputation as junk.
Don't know about now!

I would look at the Graco Magnum 262805X7 .... on Amazon for $389.
It has very good reviews.

In my experience, the big problem with Wagner is that it doesn't store well. If you let it sit for six months the valves freeze up and it takes a lot of work to get them free again. If you buy a Wagner, figure it will last one summer. That's a lot of paint. I did the interior doors, two bedrooms, the outside of the house and my barn with one. The paint cost way more than the sprayer. Buy one, use it, and sell it for $40. You will be money ahead. If you need one in the future, buy another one.

Last year I purchased a Graco Magnum Project Painter Plus from Lowes to the tune of about $270. I believe it works with both 1 gallon and 5 gallon containers. It comes with only one tip which I found to be somewhat problematic for the paint that I was spraying (possibly too thick), but overall it did well. I painted some heavy duty lattice with it and it turned out pretty good. I ended up wasting quite a bit of paint since there are a ton of openings, but I saved so much time it was worth it. I think it took my wife almost 2 hours to brush one 4' x 8' piece, where it only took me 10 minutes to spray one piece, both sides. The setup and storing procedures could be better, but I guess at the end of the day, it's just what you have to do to keep it in good condition. Graco sells their own storing fluid which I would recommend. If overspray is not an issue and you have a large area to paint, I would highly recommend some type of sprayer. There are much better Graco units out there if you are looking for something more "professional."

couple yrs ago , I purchased the wagner from Walmart. About $100.00.
I painted my house one year, and my MIL's house and barn the next.

You can spray latex paint straight from the container. No thinning required

My son borrowed it last week and said it works great

Lowe's has the Graco Magnum LTS17 for $398.
If you are a veteran, your discount will bring that price down to $358.20
In my opinion, that is a great price, for a machine with nearly 5 star feedback.
It is Lowe's item # 295433

Airless spraying is the way to go. Graco units trump Wagnor in my opinion but whatever your choice of brand, the Golden rule of successful spraying is keeping the equipment clean, clean, and cleaner. Purchase a gun with an internal paint filter and change or clean it often. Match the tip size to the material being sprayed ( most coatings will have a recommended tip size listed on the can. Tip sizes can be a little confusing in that they are typically listed as 415 or 618 ECT. Deciphering those numbers are as follows:
The first didget times 2 equals the width of the spray fan. The second two numbers equal the orface size in thousands and should match the recommendation on the coating containers.
Lastly, the business end of an airless paint gun is literallly a lethal weapon and can inject material into a body part in an instant. That is nothing to fool around with so seek medical attention immediately.
