While Graco makes some very good smaller paint sprayers for using on smaller jobs around the home, they also have a good range of commercial airless paint sprayers too. In this article we are going to look at the Graco 390 commercial paint sprayer, and see just what this model has to offer, and help you decide whether it provides the quality you are looking for.
Even though the Graco 390 is designed for commercial usage, it is still not too oversized. So for portability purposes it can still be moved around easy enough and lifted on and off the truck when taking from job to job. It is designed in such a way that it is very stable when placed on the ground too, so you will not have to worry about it being dragged over while being used.
The Graco 390 is ideal for using on applications such as fences and decking, commercial buildings, property maintenance, residential properties and garage doors to name just a few. It is easy to use and does not take long to set up, so is ideal for using on commercial projects where time is money and you cannot afford to be playing around too long setting the sprayer up ready for use.
Tips for using a Graco sprayer
A closer look at the Graco 390
Motor type and maximum pressure delivery
The Graco 390 is run by a 5/8 HP motor, that delivers the power and consistency of the paint spray. The maximum working pressure is 3300 psi, and has a maximum delivery of 0.47 gallons per minute. This is sufficient to get your paint applications on efficiently and also the consistency of the motor and spray gun ensures that the paint is applied evenly so the quality remains consistently high.
Hose and gun
When you purchase the Graco 390 is comes with a 50 foot BlueMax II airless hose as standard. But you can opt to purchase a separate hose up to 300 feet in length if you require this extra range. This gives you a lot of freedom of movement, and the actual body of the 390 does not need to be moved around. It will enable you to work up a ladder or on a larger surface.
The gun used is a FTx model with a 0.015 tip. The maximum tip size you can use on the Graco 390 is a 0.021 inch tip. So you do get a lot of flexibility if you need to upgrade any of the parts to suit your needs for larger jobs.
As mentioned previously, the Graco 390 is not too big, so it is a very manageable size to carry around from job site to job site. Weighing in at just 30 pounds, you should be able to lift it on and off the truck and move it into the required working position easily enough. The dimensions for the 390 are as follows:
- Length = 15.75 inches
- Width = 14 inches
- Height = 17 inches
