Marshalltown Enforcer?


Do any of you have any thought or opinions on the "Marshalltown Enforcer"

I'm sick of the hopper and can't justify spending $5000 on a big rig and keep hearing horror stories about the smaller pump units. Any suggestions would be helpfull.

Thanks
LS

I spray with Apla Techs pump. You hook up to a compressor and it is a great pump. If you buy just the pump, hose and gun, it is not too bad for money. I wouldn't buy the tools, though. It is mostly maintenance free and sprays like a ten thousand dollar sprayer. Holds 4 buckets of mud with the hose. As you probably noticed, I sorta like it.

A second thought, you have to have at least a five horse compressor. I use a 13 horse mounted in the trailer. (gas) It ran about two thousand, though. (Quincy Air)

4 5 gallon buckets? That's one big hose buddy
After rereading: With the 10 or 15 gallon hopper on the pump, that would be a very nice rig

Marshalltown Enforcer


ENFORCER backpack texture/mud sprayer is quite possibly the coolest texture spraying tool around. With a capacity of 2.5 gallons, the Marshalltown ENFORCER can spray Acoustic/Popcorn, Orange Peel/Fine Splatter, Splatter, Knockdown, EIFS, Stucco, and Deck Coatings/Decorative Concrete Overlay. Unlike a traditional hopper texture gun, the enclosed tank makes spills thing of the past. It works with any standard air compressor and has a maximum output of 1.75 gallons per minute.

Graco RTX1500

• 15-gallon hopper
• Heavy duty cast aluminum air spray trigger gun
• Maintenance-free, oil-less compressor
• RotoFlex™ HD texture pump delivers smooth material flow for uniform coverage
• The two hoses are permanently bonded together for easy handling
• Automatic pressure unloader dramatically extends pump life
• Adjustable material flow control with easy to read gauge
• Up to 100' of hose

Funny!! You're right, that would be a BIG hose. But with the fifteen gallon tank and a fifty foot hose...
The picture of that Marshalltown sprayer on the guy's back seems a bit cumbersome. I don't think I would like that. And then again, lugging the hose around full of mud from my sprayer is somewhat tiring.

I like the way you replied, SirMixalot, with the smiley face shaking his head no and then yes.

To OP :I guess 2.5 gallons could do a ceiling or wall approx. 150-250 sqft .If your jobs are mostly that size, perfect. Better than holding a hopper. To have to take it off to keep refilling on bigger jobs would be a bit Mickey to me.

Re: Marshalltown Enforcer?


Thanks for the advice guys. The only way I would consider the Marshalltown unit would have been to fill it with a pump but by the time you pay for a pump and the unit your looking at $750 not to mention a compressor weather you already have one or not its part of the equation. The more I look at it the Graco 1500 is looking quite tempting at $1900.00 with free shipping, thats not bad. I know I will stay away from the smaller units.

Thanks
