I'd recomend the graco mark IV or V,. More than enough for paint but allows you to shoot thick material if needed in future like mud or epoxy.

BRO . If you got a 5" grant" budget your looking to spend then get the best one you can. I assume if your a painter you will shoot thick primers also. Look for 1 gpm or close too it.

Get the biggest the budget will allow. There is not much more disappointing than a year down the road find out if you had spent a little more you could expand your business and your profit margin. It's better to have one that will do more than you want than to have one that won't do what you need.

I have had my two Graco 695's for over 10 years. They're work horses and all the power I need for any interior, exterior, residential and commercial painting projects that I do. :thumbsup:

Looks like you have sent a realistic budget. I would think about the following:
gas or electric? The new sprayers can be both where you switch out the motor from one to the other.

How many guns?

Do you anticipate spraying block fillers or epoxy's?

Get the best sprayer you can afford, that suits your needs, cheaper sprayers (regardless of brand) have lighter duty parts intended for non continuous use.

I was with a friend recently who was pricing a new sprayer, my sprayer is years old and to be honest so much has changed, especially with coatings I felt lost listening to them. The choices of sprayers was overwhelming. I do know that the one that can remove the gas motor and clip on an electric motor in just about two minutes caught my attention. If I was wanting to do 50% interior and 50% exterior it would have my attention. Don't rule out Titan.

My advise is know what you need from a sprayer and talk to a rep, they should match a sprayer to your needs.
