Hopefully they are more refined than the first generation Proshot. I like the idea of the DeWalt battery but then I already use them.

I wonder if it can handle a fine finish tip and ProClassic?? It would be a winner if it could for small stuff or some onsite work. Looks like the pump is field replaceable.

Okay who's getting one? I have the Proshot II. I wonder if it's much better.

The LP tips are different than the other tips in the way they will not leave tails at low pressures. These tips will give you a better finish than a regular FF tip with reduced rebound/overspray.

According to their literature you can "use one tip across all airless machine", I'm not sure what that means.

Looking at the design, it appears as if they'll fit any RAX X holder.

http://www.graco.com/us/en/products/...-fflp-tip.html

I know it will spray Pro Classic.

Batteries are good for a gallon per charge according to the literature also.

I really want these to work, but unfortunately, I think we're still a few years away from seeing a design that'll truly perform as intended. Even the old versions kinda worked for a little while. Looks like they've made some much needed improvements though. I have no doubt the addition of the FFLP tips will certainly help, but I can almost guarantee that that after a little while, the 2 cordless versions will still suffer the same shortcomings; pulsation, inconsistent results, and lack of longevity. There's a reason we don't see Kremlin battery operated sprayers. JMHO.

I'm starting to get uncontrolled pulsation with my ProShot II.

Re: Graco And Dewalt


My pro shot II has been pulsating lately too. I am still able to get a good finish with it. But still.

I am willing to give this new product a try.

I am also hoping that one of these new ones will be suitable for shooting water based poly. I would love to replace my HVLP

I've learned to work with it. I was spraying crown outside. You could barely see where it pulsated in the finish, when the sun hit it just right. However it was impossible to see inside where it was hung. I too would like someone to buy it and give us the lowdown!

Re: Graco And Dewalt


I read this thread the other day. I've been thinking about getting one in the past, just kept putting it off.

Read the thread and thought, now might be the time. We already have plenty of DeWalt batteries. I was in the paint store and they had the ProShot II on the shelf. Turns out it was on clearance, to make room for the new DeWalt ones.

I bought it. $150. Cordless one. Complete package including 2 extra tips.

Just thought I would mention it to anyone who might be looking for one. I'm sure other places are putting them on clearance also. I thought I wanted the DeWalt battery one, but at that price I couldn't resist.

Mine has some brochures and the manager said he played with one at a trade show. He said they are getting quite a bit of interest.

I asked my SW Rep. for a quote this morning. Seems like he knows what it was.

Still waiting to hear back.

Re: Graco And Dewalt


There is an advertisement in my store. It says $200 trade in, if you trade in your Proshot II for the new DeWalt battery one. I'm sure there are some details to that.

They don't have the gun yet. Just the flyer.

The guy said the differences are the battery, obviously, and the new one has interchangeable tips. I believe with the Proshot II you can't pull the tip our and put a new one in. You have to unscrew the end and replace the whole thing.
I'm not positive. I haven't even used it yet.

May not be in stores, but looks like they are available.

You never know, the could be taking pre-orders.

I was quoted $650 for the Ultra model part # 17M363 after taxes it puts it at almost $700 at the same level of the Ultra max online.

SW has it as part 17N164.
