What model paint sprayer?
 
After many painting jobs (our own, not professional), we use ONLY Behr paint. It is the only one that gives us the results we want. For those who haven't ever used it, it is almost the consistency of not-quite-set pudding. Really thick and gives awesome results. Does anyone know of a relatively inexpensive (< $150) paint sprayer that will spray this paint, unthinned? I have an old 2 story house that needs exterior painted. I would really prefer to spray rather than brush paint it. Thanks for any and all advice! :help:

If you could afford $200 home depot has the base model graco sprayer that is amazing. It works really well and my painters swear by it.

Six out of the first 17 sprayers listed on Nextag cost less than $150 so I guess it's possible.

Just know beforehand what you are giving up in convenience. With the hidden costs of ownership you may want to check the price of replacement parts before buying.

zman, what's the model number? Thanks - I'll take a look at it.

"Paint sprayers, however, do not work with paint that has been mixed by retail stores. That paint is generally too thick, and it can result in either an uneven coating on the wall’s surface or “splotchy” painting that causes the sprayer to clog and malfunction."

I used to be a pro painter and was really impressed with titan. The specs look pretty good on the titan advantage 100. Mine was a good bit higher up the line but I bet the advantage 100 will do what you need. Keep in mind some paints are aimed more for rolling and brushing then spraying.

I think titan's are really good sprayers as well. Graco and Titan's are the best on the market but they aren't the cheapest.

I always use professional Titan spray guns.
