Re: Graco And Dewalt


That is silly money unless it works very well and for a long time. I would expect to get a few years of frequent use or a lifetime of periodic use for that price. Also, why can't they make one that I can buy normal gun tips for. Or does this one use standard tips?

This one is actually better. You can use your Dewalt 20V batteries and the new Fine Finish Low Pressure spray tips.

The Ultra model is priced online for $499

Re: Graco And Dewalt


Stopped by my local SW yesterday. They had literature on the shelf, but only one person there had any clue about it. He said the corded model was on order and should be in store this Friday. The cordless ones were expected to be available by 2nd week of March, but they weren't planning to keep them in stock.

On the negative side, most of the people at my local SW seem to take pride in ignorance. "Nope never heard of that there battery powered painting gizmo?!" "Wot the hell you want one them for any ways? Here buy this 395"

On the positive side, there are at least two people at my local SW that care, and keep up with current events in terms of product.

Re: Graco And Dewalt


Hey Guys

I've recently purchased and used the new Graco handheld. I got the Ultimate (Corded Version). I'm a Handyman and do a lot of exterior trim and siding rot repair. In the past for smaller jobs I was using a Wagner Flexio and knew I needed to up grade. As soon as I heard about these new models I started researching. What I liked most was the fact these new guns take FF LP tips and can spray upside down. Thus far minus testing (playing with it) I've sprayed the exterior of one France door. The Ultimate preformed rather well and was easy to control. Way more precise than the Wagner. The finish the Graco left was very nice and even, appsoed to the Wagner where it would leave an orange peel type lumpy finish. Clean up of the Graco wasn't bad. I really like how the new Graco's have flat spots on the top of the gun, so you can set them down upside down when refilling your paint.

Time will tell how long it will last but I have a feeling it will hold up well and I'll have better product support than before with the Wagner. Are these new models going to be the end-all-be-all of handheld airless guns? We will see but I feel Graco is taking the right steps toward making a professional handheld gun.

Just a side note- I'm invested in the Ridgid line of 18volt tools and this is the only reason I chose the corded version over the cordless model. I could really see where the cordless version would be a force multiplier.

I have it Mike. It's fantastic. Only used it to paint my garage door but it did a hell of a job. Cleanup is pretty quick, 5-10 minutes. I have a video on my instagram page.

Re: Graco And Dewalt


I have the cordless, but not the one that takes DeWalt batteries. I believe the tip is different with the DeWalt. At least that's what I was told. I haven't personally used it. So far, no complaints from the guys.

I really don't see the advantage of DeWalt batteries. It came with 2 batteries that seem to do just fine. If you already have DeWalt batteries, I can see the advantage, but not everyone uses DeWalt.
If the tip is really different, then I could see a reason to upgrade, but as long as the batteries are doing fine, I don't see a reason to change.

As a rule, I would always buy the cordless over the corded. The advantages are too numerous to list.

Apparently it's the same. Just like how Graco has different names for the same products depending if they're sold at Sherwin Williams vs other places. Real pain trying to sort through their product numbers to figure out what's what.

Here's a brief explanation of the HD version I found on Instagram

And the ultra, uses standard rac tips, whereas the PC pro uses a tip specific to that gun. Apparently.
