Look at the Graco Magnum X9 for what your'e doing. Lowes and SW probably has an equivalent. Not the best out there, but taken care of you should get a few years out of it.
I started with the magnum 9 and must say it has served me very well when I could I went larger but I still use the 9 for small jobs.Thanks, I do like the stand up design better, I'm trying to find Lowe's equivalent of it now
The 390 is too small a rig to think of using 300ft of hose. I'd say 150 ft. max with that unit (not me, brother) and follow the tip below from Graco.I like the short design as well. Think about it, how often are you going to move it. Rarely more than lugging it inside.
The nova 390 supports up to 300 feet of hose, something to think about. With that much hose you probably wont even have to unload it.
Going for a cheaper model like the pro x series isn't so bad an idea, its just after you hit the recomended gallon limit it's a crapshoot of when it's going to die. You may get 10 more years out of it, you may not.
That's what I want.To hell with it, just get a Graco 395 FP AAA.
I'm with metro. I use a 395, which is a little bigger ,but I've used it for everything. Just clean all your filters pretty regularly and keep a sheet on it when you're working inside.Metro M & L said:I used my 390 monthly for i dunno three four years. Interior exterior laquer, shellac, oil, latex. Burnt it up this spring running a hundred feet of hose. under warranty, portland compressor replaced the motor for free. Sold it for 350 and bought a new 390 for 700.00. in other words that pump costs about 75.00 a year to operate.
