This commercial is total BS. I have the 590. When spraying sherwin williams premium classic paint, unthinned, it splatters. This is with the turbine at full speed and the trigger set to both min and max painting. I added some distilled water to get it to spray better, and it helped. As to overspray, OMG!! There is a ton of it. As far back as 5 feet from the wall I have little droplets of white paint on my new maple floors. I had to let it dry and go over all the flooring with a razor blade to remove it. For the price, I guess what do you expect. I would use this on an outdoor fence or the like or maybe new construction where there is no finished flooring and minimal masking needed. For a finished home, forget it!!!!!

Papi Oso says:

This video was garbage just like the flexio. Pure trash.

Timothy Wilcox says:

This design sucks period. The cheap plastic yellow tips crack everytime and then it does nothing but splatter paint. Worthless

Lango Farias says:

Great, Elizabeth Warren teaching us to paint!!!!

Paul Schuster says:

After purchasing one of these, I disagree with almost everything she says in this video. You better have everything you don’t want paint on masked off or paint in a tent, the spray goes everywhere When trying to primer some molding lying flat on saw horses, the primer has to be thinned a little bit, the process is fast, but the end result is such that you have to go over and brush it out because the finish isn’t smooth. Worked out ok, but I wish I had built a tent. As far as clean up, it is 3 to 5 times more difficult than cleaning a conventional spray gun.. The paint gets stuck in every crevice of the sprayer and it takes a very long time to pick it out, as it dries right away, and it doesn’t easily flush out… This was water based primer I used, and it may clean up better with other water base paints. I would recommend this product only if you have time to waste cleaning up.

Duane Carter says:

I just got a Flexio 590.  I was painting a small project with the small tip setup.  The paint was acrylic latex.  Instructions with the sprayer say not to thin the paint.  It worked well after I thinned the paint with Floetrol.

You’ve got a lot to answer for with this “review” . You mightn’t look like a born liar but you sure are. As the previous posters have said, “It’s not a review but an endorsement.”
You don’t even mention the dreadful noise this thing makes. get out of our lives you creep.

djspock5150 says:

This video is bad, i did my own research the 570 has a couple speeds and the 590 has like 9 and is a bit faster but not by much. Pay the extra 20 bucks for the 9 speed you cheap suckas
 

Tyson Harris says:

Own it, bought it from Depot. I’ve used it to spray a mail box, shutters, shelves and a manger. Conclusion…the product leaves a terrible finish that needs to be rolled afterwards and the overspray is horrible. Plan on losing 30 – 40% of your product to overspray. Wouldn’t buy again.

lawdog490 says:

THE ONLY THING TRUE ABOUT THIS “REVIEW” IS THE EASY CLEAN FEATURE. MY DECK IS 50X33 FEET. MY KIDS GOT ME THE 590 AFTER I RESEARCHED IT BY BETTER REVIEWS THAN THIS ONE. THE 590 FOR ME, IS AWESOME. I NEVER USED A POWER SPRAYER AND EXPERIMENTED W THE SUPPORT COLUMNS. DOING THE SPINDLES WAS A BREEZE. ANYWAY, THATS MY 2 CENTS ON THIS.

carforumwanker says:

piece of fucking crap. Wagner via Amazon must get so many returns in the UK

these are for silly people . real people buy fujis etc 

Justin Kim says:

can you put plasti dip in it?

jayr nunez says:

Bungo Man says:

Yes pls check the flow the lekage off the nozzle Paint drips and doesn’t stop It has a flow on the gasket probably so I need to go searching for airless paint gun still…

John Wiesendanger says:

this isn’t a review, it’s an endorsement, the foundation for which is unclear. if you’d like to actually see the sprayer function stop the video and watch a different one. I’d go so far as to say this video does a disservice to humanity by taking up their time and space on the internet.

Queen DaDiva says:

Sorry, but the rate this sprayer seems to come out, I can do the same job much faster with a roller without having to bend my knees. And, and, and, for you to represent a company that says you don’t need a respirator to help protect your precious lungs and nasal passages, is misleading to all that believe this endorsement. So, no thanks.

q7wasp7 says:

I’m so glad you tried the two sprayers.  You should rename the videos “I tried the sprayers.  Look – they spray!  Pssssssstttttt.  See?”

Rick Myers says:

In no way was this a review of any sort. Just an advertisement, and a terrible and uninformative one at that. Waste of my time; but writing this review isn’t in the hopes I save someone else the minute:48 of frustration–even the few chopped up seconds of actual demonstration-footage was pixelated where the paint-meets-the-wall and fails to show any results.

BD says:

I have a 570. I oaned it out & it came back W/O being cleaned. I think both latex & oil based were used in the sprayer. I’ll probably replace the cup, but what shoukd I use to run through the sprayer W/O causing damage to the internal parts..?..
Acetone..?..thinner..?..Turpentine..?..

brokenarrowez says:

Even a Caveman can do it.
For $300 you can buy a new airless. Quicker and Better job.

0x5347_0 says:

I lost all trust when the lady hesitated at 0:07 as to why its “perfect”.

Sean White says:

The Graco true coat is more expensive, but it delivers the quality finish

Andromuda Galaxy says:

Go to hell dumb ass. This is NOT a review. It’s an endorsement.

baddoggie101 says:

Why is she spraying water and why is that guy cleaning an already clean sprayer?

Gavin Alves says:

shill

Video Workbench Productions says:

Very well done video!! 🙂

Garva Ene says:

I buy flexio 585 and i still wait to recover my money . DO NOT BUY THIS THINGS !!!!! Is not a spray gun  ,is a powerful fan who make prrrrr,prrrr prrrr on yours walls .NOT WORKING, folks .

joeyrock says:

“Practically no over spray”?? Not my experience. I tried a Flexio 570 and the over spray was terrible. The machine clogged after about 10 minutes using latex paint. I went back to brush and roller.

Kiran Kumar says:

Is this video and music editing demonstration or the sprayer review? At the end of video, nothing worth noting. Useless.

1981gMachine says:

I clicked this because it was in my recommended to watch list hoping for a review.  Like others have posted, no review has been done here.  Being an automotive painter.  I’ve contemplated and will prolly use one of my spray guns for the house.  Should work just fine with a larger tip.  I’ll also be able to spray faster then what’s pictured in the video. 

Paul Schuster says:

I would like to ad that this video is absolutely BS.

Paul V says:

Ummm where is the review? Stay away

Conans River says:

always wear a mask when spraying. Some of this paint is getting in your lungs.

A Malcolm says:

Your intro with the flashy lights is HORRIBLE. You gave me a seizure. Not really. But seriously. WTF?

ADROCK says:

Great vid it’s completely impossible to tell if your spray actual paint , water or maybe just air this was a pointless review !

shlomi david says:

sucks sprayer

frusfromus says:

This cheap plastic crap is a joke. Get a FUJI Spray station turbine, cry once and then enjoy life time of great spraying.

antv38 says:

Nice comercial. Where’s the review?

i Sandhu says:

how much u got paid

Gumboot Zone says:

lol The comments here are awesome! I got one and like everyone else, I found a dimpled splatter- type finish. I had to thin the paint too much to improve that, but still only second rate results. But I agree about the cleaning. It dismantles and cleans very well. I ruined 2 “buzz-guns” by not cleaning them right, because they’re so sensitive to seizing up. Upgraded to a Titan professional Airless.  All problems now solved.

JEFFREY G DELABRE says:

Thankyou Much

yo man says:

PLEASE DONT THESE THEY ARE SHIT AND BREAK AFTER AN HOUR AS THEY BLOW HOT AIR AND THEY CLOG UP IN MINUTES I KNOW AS I BOUGHT ONE 🙁

TheOregonOutlaw says:

No over-spray my read end – this heavy & unwieldy pig could choke a horse!!!  Save your money and IGNORE this video!   Wagner DOES make some good products, however I owned the 590 and everything from the controls to the paint pick up tube make it one to PASS on buying. 

Jeff Monik says:

you suck! a waste of bandwidth  and time    

Octavio Calderon says:

590. stay away from it

Ted yellowstone says:

WORST “REVIEW” EVER! WTF, it’s noting but an infomercial.

John Harrod says:

I like many others bought this product to hopefully save time but also make everything look professional….WRONG!
I am painting a new picket fence in my garage, as in Florida it is rainy season and thought I can still be productive. I was totally wrong. I started just as stated in the instructions and sprayed water thru the sprayer first to learn the spray pattern. Ok that worked out pretty good. Now the gruesome part….. I contacted my son in law about thinning and exactly what to look for. He told me, and said I may have to add a little more water as paint vary. SPLATTER CITY!!! The whole garage is splattered with paint from this sprayer. The pickets looked as though they had snot on them not paint. I started at the lowest pressure and started working up. son in law said it sounded like it may be clogged, took apart and throughly cleaned everything. and then he said to thin the paint a little more, I did this. What a disaster this project has become’!! So glad I put tarps up on one side anyway as it stopped some of the clean up. I used a gallon of paint for 2 and 1/2 of the picket fence panels and 15 more to go. Can’t afford to keep doing this, so more paint and out comes the brush! Practice with water, BULLHOCKY!!
