What customers say about "Key Specs"
Wagner Flexio 890 HVLP Paint Sprayer Station
  • This paint gun is fast. You can paint a 12x15 room in minutes.
  • Cleans up quickly and easily. And the adjustments for air pressure and paint flow work flawlessly!
  • There are three adjustments ... Air pressure, material flow rate and spray pattern. They provide a chart to help you decide where to set the dials based on the material you're working with.
  • After using it a few time, I finally figured out the flow and now it's working great! Practice makes perfect!
  • I tried adjusting the flow, the air hose, and of course the spray nozzle, but could never get good coverage out of it. Maybe I was expecting too much for this small type of sprayer.
  • Not worth the trouble. Better to get a real professional sprayer if you want fine finishes. You will waste so much time and paint that you will wish for and gladly pay for a pro sprayer.
Wagner Flexio 990 Paint Sprayer
  • This sprayer uses lots of paint unless you adjust the paint flow way down. Clean up is a little time consuming. With a little practice it's works just fine.
  • Both nozzles perform well if you adjust turbine speed and material flow properly.
  • Large nozzle can spray unthinned latex without a problem. The small nozzle may require you to thin the material for a smooth coat. Small nozzle is much easier to clean -- seriously, it's a piece of cake.
  • This thing started pulling too much paint within 10 minutes of use. Turned air pressure to 1 and gave it a new can per instructions and it still sucked.
  • No happy at all with this purchase. Worked great for 1 day. After carefully cleaning the lines and sprayer after 1st days use, on day 2 sprayer won't stop the flow of paint.

What customers say about "Features"
Wagner Flexio 890 HVLP Paint Sprayer Station
  • Adequate adjustments to fine tune to your application (air pressure, paint concentration, etc.)
  • Round knob on handle of pump unit for holding sprayer head when not in use. Very convenient feature.
  • Two one-off switches; one on pump unit and one on sprayer head for convenience.
  • The switch on the gun that controls the turbine is great. You just flip the switch and it turns on or off ... no need to go back to the base unit and bend over.
  • It's messy as "f". I already knew it would be. But cleaning this gun up is a headache.
Wagner Flexio 990 Paint Sprayer
  • Cleaning the system is pretty easy, though time consuming. 15 minutes for typical acylic paint.
  • This system comes with two paint heads, one for smaller jobs, and another that can draw directly from a paint can. It's a nice feature.
  • I used the one quart container to paint 8 doors and trim with satin latex paint right out of the can, no thinning. I could not be happier with the results. Cleanup was a breeze.
  • The instructions are not great and the system not intuitive to use even for those of us that are gifted with mechanical ability.
  • The most difficult thing to master is the trigger. It's dual action and controls paint flow and air flow. The more you pull, the more paint will be delivered. I set the meters to 4 out of 10 until I got the hang of it.
  • It froze up half way through the second gallon of brand new paint, I couldn't even flush it with water to try and fix it.
