Graco GX19
« on: May 15, 2017, 03:00 PM »
Hello Foggers,
Anyone own a Graco GX19? If so, what do you think? It's on my list to buy sometime in the near future.
Cheers,

JC

I bought one a few years ago when I was remodeling my house to sell it.  It worked beautifully. Plenty of power and great pressure. I bought an extra length of hose and a short whip hose and was able to reach long distances without having to relocate the pump.  I was diligent about thoroughly flushing and rinsing the pump and the filter in the gun handle after each use and never had a problem. 

The gun that came with it was very nice, but I preferred an older Graco professional gun that I had from a previous sprayer just for ergonomics.  I sprayed around 40 gallons with it and then sold it when I downsized.  It is a very capable sprayer and it folds up very compactly for storage.  If I had to do it over, I'd buy it again as it is a very capable machine for the price.

If you're asking about the newer GX19 hopper version that became more available 2nd half last year then:

All around, I'd say a nice small airless system. Make sure to invest in the new fine finish low pressure tips, FFLP.

The GX19 has been out for about a year. We started testing it before it came out and have continued to use it professionally.

Here is our review of it: http://topcoatreview.com/2016/10/graco-gx-19/

Good little rig, probably one of the very best at its price point for both fine finishing and light production duty.
