    Default paint sprayers

    I have 1275 square feet of exterior painting on a cottage. The surface is Hardie board siding. I will be using latex paint.

    I am considering purchasing the Kobalt Latex Sprayer @ $50.

    Has anyone used this model?

    I was also considering the Graco DX7 as it has decent reviews however I did not really want to invest the roughly $150. in price difference.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Go with the Graco unit. Try looking on Craigslist for a professional sprayer at a reasonable price. Also, you can rent a professional grade sprayer for about $65 a day. If you've got all your prep done you can easily paint a 1200 square foot cottage in a day.

    I went with the Kobalt Latex Paint Sprayer from Lowes.

    The sprayer performed well. Boy did it save time. I am glad I didn't have to use a roller.


    I was able to achieve a factory like finish on the Hardie Siding.

    For $50 it was worth it.

    Cheers
