About The Graco Magnum X5 Paint Sprayer
The Graco Magnum paint sprayer is an airless sprayer that is going to be ideal for homeowners and DIYers who are looking to freshen up paint around the house. Since the device is airless, it uses a hose method to force the paint through the sprayers nozzle, instead of using air compression.
This method is going to eliminate over spraying and will give you a nice and even flow.

What People Had To Say
When looking at what people had to say about the Graco airless paint sprayer, the majority of people who purchased the unit had really positive things to say about it.
Several people felt that this was the perfect tool to upgrade to if you tend to tackle your paint jobs with a brush or roller. Some people have also said that although this is an entry level sprayer, it is going to produce similar results of a high end device.
People like that the unit is made of a sturdy metal, but it is still lightweight for prolong use. On top of that, it is very easy to use and you can achieve some impressive results with very little effort.
While you may have to water down thick latex paints, customers point out that a little bit of water is going to go a long way because the suction on the sprayer is that strong.
With every good there will be some complaints, as customers found that the product was not able to work with all types of paints.
Other customers said that when they tried using the sprayer, it had a tendency to get clogged, which would cause them to stop their job and clean the device.
Other customers wanted to point out that this particular device was not ideal for the novice or the beginner painter, as you could end up using a lot of paint for a very little project. Customers felt that this product is best suited for large jobs—but be mindful that it can create quite the mess while using it.
Painting is a task that not many people enjoy, that much is true. While you can change the look of a room or a piece of furniture with a fresh coat of vibrant paint, it is a long process that can be pretty messy if you’re not mindful of what you’re doing.
That is, if you’re using a brush or a roller. With an airless paint sprayer like this one by Graco, you can streamline the painting process exponentially.
We are fond of this sprayer because it is able to tackle those large projects without wasting a whole day to get it done. Plus, for less than $300, you can rest assured in knowing that the product is going to last. If something should happen to the sprayer that is a manufacturer defect, you can return it to the company for a refund, replacement, or repair.
As a homeowner, you’re going to have to do some touch ups to the paint around your home. Whether you are touching up the finish on the deck, if you want to repaint the bedroom, or if you’re looking to refurbish a chest of drawers and give it a fresh new look, you’ll be able to do that with this sprayer.
While it may not be the cheapest sprayer on the market, you’re paying for a quality sprayer that is going to get the job done beautifully and evenly each time.
