You don’t need to run a painting business to benefit from what a commercial paint machine can provide.

The untold truth of the paint sprayer industry is this: most residential models are intended for single-room applications.

What if you have a large home that requires a new coat of paint? Or extensive buildings on your property?

That’s when you’ll want the best commercial paint sprayers at your disposal. These models are high-capacity units that make painting simple and easy.

Texture application, for example. This sprayer will help you to finish your prep work before painting with serious ease.

We’re not talking about those old popcorn ceilings, though that is technically possible with this equipment. It will spray joint compound.

This commercial paint machine will not spray paint, stain or varnish. In a single day, you can feasibly texture about 4,000 square feet with ease.

It even works well with a commercial-grade extension cord of up to 100 feet. Compared to the old-fashioned hopper guns, you’ll love what this product can do.

Graco Magnum Pro X19

best paint machine for professionals
  • Adjustable paint flow control
  • Spray unthinned paints directly from bucket
  • PowerFlush Adapter connects to a garden hose for fast and easy cleaning
  • Annual use recommendation is up to 500 gallons per year
  • Up to 150 ft of paint hose

If you do a lot of painting, then you need a durable and strong sprayer to get you through your workday.

This paint machine from Graco features all of the benefits that you’ve come to expect from a quality Graco product.

As an added benefit, the manufacturer recommends up to 500 gallons of annual use with this model for best results.

Magnum Pro X19 Tech Specs

  • Gallons per minute .038
  • Max Tip Size 0.019
  • Engine 0.875 HP
  • Stainless steel parts
  • Annual Use Recon. 500 Gallons!

This commercial paint machine can support a paint hose of up to 150 feet for maximum movement. You’re going to get a lot of work done with this equipment by your side.

Graco makes this airless paint sprayer a real workhorse by ensuring that you can run a ton of tip sizes including .009, .011, .013, .015, .017 and .019.  It runs like most commercial machines at max 3000 PSI. 

Included with your purchase is the Sprayer cart plus a metal spray gun, 515 tip, tip guard, 50ft duraflex hose and 8 ounces of pump armor for storage.

Up to 500 gallons/year
Up to 150 foot hose

Titan Control Max 1700

commercial paint machine
  • 300 gallons per year
  • 0.33 gallons per minute
  • 0.6 HP motor
  • Comes with 50 foot hose

This professional airless sprayer unit was manufactured with the hobbyist who wants to take it up a notch. The Titan 1700 HEA Tip decreases overspray levels by over 55% compared to other airless sprayers in this category.  Less atomized paint particles floating around in the air. Save money on your paint budget too.

The spray is softer too because of the lower PSI, which means you have more control over the consistency of the finish and helps to reduce blow back and overspray.

I love that the Titan 1700 draws paint directly from a 3 or 5 gallon container, making it super easy to paint your projects. The included 50 foot hose makes sure you can reach any area you need to paint. The hose can be extended up to 10 feet for a longer reach. Priming is a breeze with the Sureflo pusher valve.

The 0.60 horsepower HEA pump (High Efficiency Airless Technology) is durable and can spray unthinned coatings. The flow rate is 0.33 gallons per minute.

The 2 wheeled cart makes this paint sprayer completely mobile for ease of use. It also comes with a storage compartment on top, to store whatever you need while you’re working.

There’s little downtime with the design of the fluid section, while the pump’s durability is extra-strong compared to the competition.

ControlMax includes a tip guard and a max tip size of 0.017 inches, which is great for spraying stain, water or oil based paints. Anything thinner and you will need to buy a smaller spray tip. Available Titan tip sizes include 311, 413, 515, and 517.

The Titan 1700 has your choice of horizontal and vertical spray patterns that can be adjusted directly on the spray gun. A dial for decreasing and increasing the paint flow is located on the paint machine itself.

It does operate at a maximum pressure of 1500 PSI, however, so there are some limitations to the benefits this model is able to provide. For some reason, this sprayer does not come with an inline filter; you will need to strain your paint to reduce clogging in the tip. Wipe down your tip frequently to also prevent clogging and never let the tip dry out if you’re taking a break. Cover it with a wet rag.

I think this sprayer is perfect for the hobbyist who wants to take it up a notch in their DIY and do more frequent painting projects, but doesn’t need to do commercial spraying or painting for a living.

  • 125 gallons annually
  • Easy to clean
  • 0.625 HP
  • 0.31 gallons per minute

Expect a quality machine when you purchase Graco’s Magnum X7 Cart Sprayer.

When we ran this machine through its paces during testing we loved the fully adjustable paint flow control.

Because this is an airless paint sprayer, we were able to spray unthinned latex directly from our 5 gallon paint bucket with the handy flexible suction tube.  This commercial machine can accommodate a 100 foot hose, so you can spray plenty of 2 and 3 story homes without issues.

Clean up goes much faster because of the PowerFlush Adapter that connects to a garden hose for quick and thorough cleaning.

It’s only limitation is the 125 annual use recommendation.  If you need more gallons/year, consider stepping up to the super popular X17 or the Graco Magnum ProX19.

It works with both 1 gallon and 5 gallon cans thanks to a paint supply hose that is flexible instead of rigid like other models with a similar design.

Weighing 15 pounds, you can also take this unit just about anywhere and achieve professional results.

Need a longer hose?  Step up with this 1/4 inch airless hose.  At 50 Feet, no project is too big.

HomeRight Power Flo Pro Airless Sprayer

commercial paint machine
  • PSI 2800
  • 25 foot hose
  • 515 tip included
  • 0.5 HP
  • 0.24 GPM
  • 100 Gal/Year
  • 2 year warranty

If you’re tired of paying high prices for commercial-quality equipment, then this is the model you need to look at right now. The design is similar to Graco’s, as is the performance, but the cost is about 60% less.

If you’ve got a big project to complete, then small sprayers are a waste of time. This model is built with the DIY remodeler in mind. If you paint more than a regular person, but not on a commercial level, then this unit is for you.

You need to step up to the next grade of equipment. The only problem is that professional-quality sprayers can be more than a month’s worth of groceries. That’s why we like this HomeRight Model.

It’s competitively priced, at half the retail of competitive models. You receive all the features you need to do the job right, including a 515 reversible spray tip. HomeRight has also included a spray tip guard built into the unit which we love for protecting the tip from getting damaged if it gets dropped.

The 515 tip can spray unthinned latex and thinner materials. Be careful though, you may need to clean the tip if you’re consistently spraying unthinned and thick paints because it can clog.

The sprayer hose is only 25 feet long, where other models on this list its 50 feet with the option to extend to 100. Keep this in mind when painting a larger area that you might have to stop to move the sprayer.

The power control knob gives you full control over the pressure, so you can adjust it when spraying thinner materials like stains.

This unit pulls paint directly from the original cans or containers, making it easy to paint anywhere and not have to worry about refill a cup. The built in mesh filter is a plus, reducing clogging and helping to achieve pro paint results. The suction hose for pulling paint from containers is not flexible which can be annoying because it might come out of the container. It might be hard to get it to reach the bottom of a 5 gallon bucket due to the inflexibility and length of the suction hose.

The Power Flo Pro comes with a handle for easy portability and also swivels on its sturdy base. At 15 pounds, this unit is pretty lightweight for what it can do.

Cleaning is really easy with this model as well, with basic solvents or water sprayed through until the stain or paint is gone.

The included gun is chrome plating: with use, this will flake off. The ergonomically designed handle helps reduce fatigue.

Backed by a 2-year warranty, you’re going to love the value that is offered here. Replacement parts are available from HomeRight or online.

Graco Magnum X5

professional spray gun
  • Max PSI 3000
  • GPM 0.27
  • 125 Gal/year
  • Weighs 17lbs

The Graco Magnum X5 Airless Paint Sprayer will help you get the job done in even some of the most challenging situations.

When you’ve got a job to complete, you don’t always know what the conditions you’ll be encountering. Maybe the job site won’t have any power. You might need a lot of flexibility in your movement.

It all begins with a redesign of the sprayer base. You’re given a working stand that allows the sprayer to be stable, but still portable, as you work.

Instead of working with a paint cup or a dispenser bag, Graco has given this model a flexible suction tube instead. You just stick the tube into your paint bucket, up to 5 gallons in size, and you’re ready to go to work.

There is an annual use recommendation on this model of 125 gallons, however, so think of it more as a personal DIY sprayer than a commercial or industrial model.

Here are the highlights of the features, which are included with the Magnum X5:

  • A 25 foot DuraFlex airless hose gives you a maximum level of movement while working without disrupting the consistency of your application.  Need more?  Check out this 1/4″ airless hose that’s 50 feet.
  • The design of this airless sprayer allows you to pump directly from either 1 gallon or 5 gallon paint containers.
  • Automatic priming features allow even first-time paint sprayers to be able to use this equipment with ease straight out of the box.
  • It will spray virtually anything you need, with the exception of lacquers or materials that have textures contained within them.

If you have a consistent number of projects that need to be completed, then the Graco Magnum X5 has the power to get the jobs done.

How is a Commercial Paint Machine and Regular Paint Sprayer Different?

Commercial paint machines are built with parts that are made to not only last longer, but to withstand commercial use. 

Professional painters use their machines to paint large projects all day long.  The manufacturer makes their machines with high annual usage to meet those demands.

Regular paint sprayers sometimes have plastic parts instead of stainless steel.  They also have a lower annual gallon usage.  They tend to be more portable and less powerful than the commercial versions. 

Commercial paint machines make clean up a breeze, usually connecting directly to a garden hose for super fast and easy clean up.

Commercial Paint Machine Pros
Sprays a ton of Materials
Fast Clean up Time
Delivers BIG gallons/minute
Long Lasting Parts

al Paint Machine Cons
Some Require More Maintenance

Is an Airless Paint Sprayer Better?

For commercial painting yes, an airless sprayer is much better than other types of sprayers.  We base our recommendation on the fact that airless sprayers deliver paint to your surface faster than HVLP and other types of sprayers.  This is because of the high PSI at which airless sprayers atomize paint. 

Commercial painters need to get through jobs fast without sacrificing results and airless sprayers deliver.

Professional Paint Machine Buyer’s Guide

How Are Commercial Paint Sprayers Rated by Manufacturers?

You’ll find that professional spray guns tend to be rated using these four common methods of comparison.

  • Gallons per minute, often denoted as GPM.
  • Maximum pressure, which is often measured in pounds per square inch, or PSI.
  • Maximum tip size.
  • Overall horsepower, or HP.

What is the Gallons per Minute Capacity on a Professional Paint Sprayer?

There is currently no industry standard for a GPM rating on paint machines. Some may tell you otherwise. Output capacity is simply a flow-rate measurement that reflects the maximum level that is achievable.

This rating is usually produced from internal testing, so verify it independently if GPM is an important feature for your needs.

Will an Industrial Paint Sprayer push out enough PSI?

Most designs are rated between 2000-4000 PSI. This pressure rating is the stall pressure of the equipment. That means it is the maximum pressure the unit can build, so it is not a reflection of its constant working pressure.

Different paint machine features can affect the PSI a specific user is able to achieve. A longer hose, for example, has a lower PSI than a shorter hose.

Tip size can affect the maximum pressure, as can the type of paint or coating which is used. Even the inclusion of a filter can lower the maximum PSI produced.

You will need a specific minimum PSI when working with certain paint types. Atomization does not occur if the minimum pressure threshold is not met.

When working with the best texture sprayers, PSI will be important as those paints are thicker and may require higher PSI output to generate the desired professional results.

For lacquers, a minimum 800 PSI is required. Stains require a 1200 PSI. Latex coatings, even when thinned, require a minimum 2000 PSI.

Paint TypeMin PSI Required
Latex (thinned)2000

Horsepower and Project Requirements

Horsepower is a reflection of the motor size. It should be paired to the jobs that must be completed. Larger or more powerful motors are not necessarily more effective than smaller motors.

What tips should I use on my Commercial Sprayer?

The tip size rating is your most important consideration. Larger tip sizes make it possible to use thicker materials and work with additional speed.

6 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Purchasing a Commercial Paint Machine

A professional paint sprayer can be a big investment. That’s why it is important to ask yourself these questions before finalizing your purchase today.

Features to Look for in a Commercial Paint Machine

Features of the Best Commercial Paint Machine
Sprays a ton of diff materials
Comes with a bunch of diff spray tips
Easy to Adjust Pressure Controls
Stainless Steel Parts
Overspray percentage
Power source required
Hose long enough
Easy to Source parts
Annual gallon usage recommendation is high enough

What materials will I be using?

Think about how you’ll use the sprayer today and in the future. That will dictate the type of tips you’ll need. Then you can find a sprayer that is built to meet the versatility that you demand.

Are you spraying latex, stains, varnish or textures?  The best commercial paint machine will let you spray any material you need to spray to get your job done. 

You need to choose the right professional paint gun to make your job go by easily.


If there are lots of tips available or your airless sprayer, you will be able to conquer a lot more painting projects with the same gun. Brand name tips usually are better quality and last longer too.

Steel Parts

This one is obvious, but steel parts protect against rust and last longer than plastic parts.

Adjustments are Easy 

A final feature to consider when shopping for the best home paint sprayer, are models that have instant adjustments.

This applies to your spray pattern. You will be able to do vertical or horizontal stripes with ease.  With instant adjustments, you switch to a round pattern or other spray design with a simple turn of a knob or switch. 

Turning the nozzle also works on some models, but these tend to clog a bit more due to the design.  

How much paint will I use?

Buying a paint sprayer intended for small projects, when a big commercial paint project needs to be finished, has irritated a fair share of contractors over the years. Make sure your new spray paint tools meet the capacity that you require.

What power sources do I have?

Some commercial paint sprayers must be chosen off of their power source before anything else. Is there an electrical line available? Do you need a fuel-powered model? Would compressed air be better? What about a battery-powered option?

What surfaces will you be working on?

Tip size, yet again, is an important factor in this decision. Exterior siding requires a different tip than interior drywall. Compare the quality of finish you want with the surface being painted, then find a commercial paint machine that can match your needs.

How much property do you need to cover?

Hose length compatibility is an overlooked question when shopping for the best commercial paint sprayers. Your sprayer must be able to support the length of hose required for your project. If you need a lot of length, consider purchasing a professional paint sprayer with a DC motor so you can run extension cords.

What is your budget?

You can pay for your professional paint sprayer now… or you can pay for it later. Cheaper models offer more downtime, more cleaning responsibilities, and more maintenance.

Expensive models require a higher upfront investment, but generally have fewer ongoing costs and support higher levels of productivity.

What Is the Cost of the Best Professional Paint Sprayers?

Most commercial paint sprayers begin at $500. These entry-level models are good for small, repetitive projects.  They require a little more maintenance than their larger counterparts, though they are also a way to get started without breaking the bank.

You should purchase the biggest paint sprayer you can afford for the best possible results.  Some paint machine models are priced around $1,500 and will provide consistent quality with minimal maintenance beyond regular cleaning.

Additional options are available for large-scale commercial paint projects in this category. They are typically customized products that are built to consumer specifications.

Pricing is highly variable for these top-of-the-line sprayers. Expect a minimum price of around $6,500 for a pro paint sprayer.

What is the Best Commercial Paint Sprayer?
