 Graco Magnum X5 Review

If you're looking for a smaller, more portable airless spray pump the Graco Magnum X5 is a great machine to consider.

graco magnum x5

 Lightweight but still powerful enough to shoot everything from stains to heavy elastomeric for small projects or occasional use, making it an excellent sprayer for the homeowner or handyman. Contractors can use this machine as an easy and inexpensive airless to carry up ladders or place in the trunk of a car.

The Graco Magnum X5 comes with 25 feet of hose but can handle up to 50 feet without putting added strain on the pump. The added hose length not only extends the work area but it saves time by not having to move the sprayer as often while working. The 1/2 horsepower electric motor runs off of standard household current or a small 1500 watt generator and requires very little on-going maintenance. Cleaning of the rig is straightforward by flushing with water or the appropriate solvent like mineral spirits.

Graco has been the industry leader in airless paint sprayers for many years and is probably used on more job sites then any other brand. The engineering and quality that goes into a Graco airless is why these pumps are sought after by so many professionals. Although this is a small airless, it still pumps a lot more paint then an hvlp.

It can easily be used to paint a complete exterior with virtually any kind of exterior paint you choose or it can be used to paint doors, shutters and cabinets as well. As long you use a smaller orifice spray tip, turn the pressure down and filter your enamel or polyurethane you can use the Graco Magnum X5 for the same things an hvlp would be used for - but with the added versatility that an airless paint sprayer gives you.

Here's what one owner of the Graco Magnum X5 had to say: 

"I couldn't be more impressed with this little beast. I used it to paint three church school buildings. The included 515 tip kept clogging up but when I switched to 521 it worked really great. In one day I went through 25 gallons of paint without a hiccup. I bought extra tips, spray masks and coveralls too which helped a lot."
