Spraying And Training


Only have done rollering in the past, and painting is something we normally sub out. However, we are starting to do our own spec houses, and wanted to "cut our teeth" on spraying. Was looking at getting a Graco pro 210es or 390.

I've used a sprayer before, but, not often enough that I'd consider myself super confident and I don't have a lot of time to train anyone anyway.

I was going to get some scrap and have them go to town on it for a while first, but... before I do that, I thought I'd ask..

Does anyone do training on using the sprayers (Sherwin Williams, the vendor itself, etc?) I couldn't find any mention of them (for airless anyway), but, thought I'd ask. Western, MA northern CT area if it isn't a national thing. I have several people that I will want to get "up to speed" on them.

Thanks.

Contact SW, if you're going to purchase from them they should make a Graco rep available to you. By the way, SW may finance for you.

If that does not work, contact Scott Burt of Prep to Finish. You can tell him I told you to contact him.

I have a 210 but would buy the 390 if I had to do it again. The 210 is the top end homeowner model.

Have them cut their teeth on priming the drywall and plan on backrolling. Donít waste valuable wage time and product on spraying scrap.
