That's the 514 tip that comes with the gun. I am going to buy a 208 for trim soon. I'm remodelling the 2nd floor of my house soon and want to spray all the trim.

Are you thinking install and spray in place, or pre paint the install and touch up?

Do you do that often? I've tried spraying in place in a remodel setting before, but that was with older tech. I wouldn't even try it with the previous proshot sprayer.

Nope it will be my first time. I've been watching lots of guys do it on Instagram. Apparently this new Graco ultra gun and the fflp tips really cut down on overspray. I'll put paper under the base and cover the whole new hardwood floor just in case. Plus mask other various things.

With the new FFLP tips, in place is not an issue. With some practice you'll need very little masking on the wall for base, 2" tape on the floor if finished, tarp to the tape. I still drape for crown.

I'll be shooting Benjamin Moore advance semi gloss. I see some guys use a 310 tip but also hear a 208 is good too.

Incase you don't know;

The first number is half the fan width, 310 will give you a 6" fan with the gun 12" from the surface being sprayed, a 208 will give you a 4" fan with the gun 12" from the surface being sprayed. Pick the first number based on the trim width.

I'd be using a *10. I believe with Advance tip sheer may be a problem with an *08. The best way to check for tip sheer is spray a piece leaving an area where you can hand apply some of the paint. If the sheens are different you're sheering the paint. The paint has been broken up to a point where the thixotropy has failed.

You may need to go to a *12 for the primer depending on what you're shooting.

I spray the trim with my Graco Triton using a 1.0 needle/nozzle set in the AirPro gun when spraying Advance.

These were sprayed with Advance, AirPro gun is hanging in the background.

Re: Graco And Dewalt


My old Graco handheld is on it's last legs, spitting, pulsing thinking it's time to pick up the Ultra.

Any feedback on how these are working out for you guys after having used them for a while now?

My primary use is trim, small built-in projects, the odd ceiling.

Re: Graco And Dewalt


My cordless PS2 is also on its last legs. A year and a half old, it quit building pressure, so I put in the rebuild parts.

They didn't work.

I would like to get the Ultra cordless, but I hesitate. I hate to drop another $500 for an occasional use tool that doesn't last even two years.

Any opinions from those who've had it for a year?

Re: Graco And Dewalt


Well, I'm about to purchase the Graco/DeWalt cordless tomorrow. Asked my sprayer repair guy at a local store what he thinks of them. And nothing bad.
Some things he said comparing the new to the old cordless graco. And some things I noticed..
NO complaints, other than people forget to cover the vent hole when tilting the gun backward.
Max psi is lower compared to old but with new tips no issues...
This is also why the small batteries are ok on these, The weight is much less.
The plastic used for the housing is MUCH better than the old brittle.
The pressure is Variable vs hi and low on the old.
700 bucks up here in Canada not too bad compared to $500 HD usa (not in Homedepot up here) was on sale for $350 usd i think.
What are you guys paying for this kit?
The one thing I was confused by there is no inlet hose like the old one. I guess the bag shrinks closed as you use it?

I paid 500 bucks for mine.

Yes, it works on suction. The bag collapses as it consumes the paint. You evacuate the air from the Paint cup when you fill it up, and then turn the gun upside down to prime it.

IDK about others, but the small battery didn't work for me. Since Dewalt is the platform I have, it doesn't really matter, I just use a big battery. It does use a battery somewhat quickly.

If you are so inclined, the wand from the full-size Graco sprayers fits. I put a 10 or 12 inch wand on mine.

I just got mine for $450. I have only used it once but the small battery worked for the short but I used it. Right now Graco has a rebate good for 2 tips of your choice. I just got mine. Sweet deal because those are $50-60 a piece.
