It is a gimicky home owner tool imo, they are always pushing products like this to try and make an easier task in this trade. I have tried many gimicky tools in the past because sometimes you never know. So imo the accubrush comes down to what one deems as acceptable standards to a finish. If you have a white ceiling, white walls and white trim it may work better.

That reminds me of the Wagner Paint Pro (or whatever it is called), where you suck up paint in a tube built in the handle, and squeeze it out to avoid dabbing the roller. The first and only time I used one, the paint blew out all over the floor, with barely any on the wall. Hocus-pokus snake oil, IMHO.

I thought that would be the case. People are always looking to circumvent hard work. There's no way around it though.

I remember seeing those and thinking what a PIA it would be to get clean.

Its all we use on our high end jobs. Threw away all my good Corona brushes and just use the Acubrush on everything now.......

Seriously though, I agree with Sean. IMHO its a gimmicky homeowner tool that will never replace a quality made brush in the hands of a skilled mechanic. There's no way I would use one on a job, other than to try it out and get a good laugh.

I can't imagine it making clean cuts. It seems similar to that Shur-line tool with the pad and wheels. Paint always got on the wheels which then got on the ceiling. It might be good for a homeowner who doesn't care so much about a perfect paint job. I don't think I'd ever try it.
