I’ve been thinking of getting an airless sprayer to reduce overspray. There are a few YouTube videos on the Wagner which looks ok but cleaning looks to be a bit of a pain. I’ve fancied a Fuji, but the cost has put me off.

I have two Apollo spray setups, they are HVLP type that has less overspray, l use either pre-cat or AC lacquer l haven’t used any waterbased allthough I will be trying some soon, they cost less the the Fuji, you can get a good price for an Apollo from hvlp.co.uk

Paul which model do you have? Do you think you get a lot less overspray than with a conventional air gun?

I had a Wagner to spray my workshop. Bloody brilliant.

Guess it depends on the model. Went quick enough for me doing the workshop.

Apologies for the delay, everything here is mental :shock:

l have two apollo 700, one i’ve had for around 20 years and still going, the second one l bought on ebay for the princely sum of £50,
it was virtually brand new but just bunged up with spray tan :lol: all it needed was a good clean and a larger tip and needle that has also worked without a fault

I expect the later models work just as well.

Just been to look at the above and the sales rep said a big no no as its good for small amounts but for bigger projects its got a short life and ill be forever rebuilding the machine . He said i'd be better spending 1k !
