Product Details


The Wagner control sprayer comes with detachable filters that can be easily removed and cleaned. This means that there is no accumulation of dirt in the sprayer and therefore less clogging.


The sprayer comes with a 3 spray patterns allowing for circular, vertical and horizontal painting, which means you can reach corners and tight spaces easily.


The sprayer is fitted with a 1.5 quart cup, enough to cover small surfaces without need for a refill. There’s an extra cup if you need more.

It is fitted with powerful air turbines that make it suitable for thick and thin paints. The Air pressure control valve helps to choose the amount of coating you want. It has a spraying power of 300 Watts

What’s Good


Unlike other paint sprayers, the Wagner does not have many detached parts, making it easy to assemble.


Also, you do not need to be exceptionally handy or read endlessly long manuals to be able to use it. Even novices can operate it with ease. It is not only easy to use; it is also easy to clean.


It comes in a variety of colors to suit your taste and style making painting look chic. Weighing just 10 lbs, the Wagner Control Sprayer feels light, allowing you to focus on the work at hand rather than the weight of the gadget.


This sprayer is usable for the indoors and the outdoors. It is also versatile and can be used for large surfaces and smaller surfaces alike.

What’s Bad


One of the features that users have complained about is the power cord which they find too short. This may limit your movement as you paint. However, the 20 feet long hose adequately compensates for the length of the cord.


Probably the most negative feature of the Wagner Control Spray is the fact that it’s rather noisy, producing the same amount of noise as a hair dryer or a vacuum cleaner.


The 300 watt spraying power of this gadget means that it produces less paint per minute, making it a little slow. This may not be a problem if you’re working on a small surface, but if you are painting a larger surface, you will take longer.


The use of thicker paints requires an increase in pressure. With the Wagner Control Spray, this increased pressure results in overspray, such that some drops of paint find themselves in areas not meant to be painted.


Compared to other similar products in the market, the Wagner is superior because of its ease of use and assembly, coupled with its high performance on small surfaces. On the downside, much as it produces excellent results even on large surfaces, the low paint output makes this sprayer rather slow.

The Final Verdict


The Wagner Control sprayer is ideal for painting small surfaces such as furniture, window frames etc. It is also good-looking, easy to use and clean.

However, its carrying capacity coupled with its low output is an indication that it was not meant for large-scale paintwork.

It is therefore recommended for amateurs or novices who are just launching out into painting, if they can get over the noise.
