I get commissions for purchases made through links in this post.

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.

Top-Rated Commercial Paint Machines

Here are the best professional paint sprayer models that are currently available.

Top Rated Professional Paint Machine

Fuji T75G Q4 Platinum

best commercial paint machine
  • Adjustable Pattern Fan Control
  • 600cc Gravity Cup
  • 25ft Hose includes air control valve to reduce overspray and bounce back
  • 1.3mm Tip
  • Weight 36lbs
  • 120v
  • Operating PSI 9
  • Spray Pattern Size 12 inch

This T-Series spray gun is arguably the best commercial paint sprayer in the industry today. It’s 20 % lighter than most other guns, reducing wrist fatigue. Ergonomic features include an easy to pull trigger and a stay cool handle.

You can get this model with your choice of a gravity feed or a siphon feed paint gun.

It offers a 4-stage turbine motor type to take advantage of the 1-quart cup capacity. It puts out about 9 PSI, the more PSI, the less you have to thin out your paint mediums. You will still have to thin latex, but not very much.

Keep the turbine housing as far away from your spraying area as you can, so you aren’t sucking up spray into the air intake on the turbine.

The metal housing dissipates heat which results in much cooler operating temperatures to increase the longevity of your turbine. You also receive a 600cc gravity cup for the gravity-feed sprayer that comes with the set. Changing your fan pattern is as simple as turning your tip 90 degrees. Air pressure control is easy access on the back of the gun for both right and left hand users.

The hose is large and made of rubber to resist kinking but its just 25 feet in length, or 75% shorter than other top models, so out of the box, your reach may be limited unless you purchase a longer hose.

You can spray at virtually any angle and still receive top notch results. Built with stainless-steel components, this great paint machine delivers promised results time and time again. A smooth and consistent finish for all your pain surfaces.

Fuji really delivers here with an adjustable spray width, flow control, fluid control valve and low overspray.

This model, like the other Fuji Sprayers, is noisier than most turbine sprayers, but one of the quietest Fuji sprayers. It operates at about 61 decibels due to sound dampening material built in. You will need hearing protection to work in the same room as the turbine for an length of time.

The gun can be stored directly on the unit and carried around your workspace with the handy carry handle.

The Fuji Tip Guide is included that is super helpful for choosing the best tip for your paint surface.

You get kick butt performance for the price.

Best Texture Sprayer Paint Machine

Graco TexSpray RTX 1400SI Texture Sprayer

  • 1.4 gallons per minute
  • 50 foot hose MAX Length
  • Holds 10 gallons of material
  • 6.1 CFM output at 20 PSI
  • Includes 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 mm round nozzles
  • XL W tips for Wide Tex 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 mm 
  • Sprays simulated acoustic and drywall mud

Even when considering commercial paint sprayers, the best models still come up short in certain ways. 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.

Air flow is controlled on the spray gun with an easy to reach valve. The adjustable material control valve is located on the pump and control how thick the material is that you’re spraying. For thinner materials, turn down the material flow valve. The included spray gun has a material flow nut that controls the amount of material flow that comes out of the gun. Finer spray patterns require you to spin the nut counter clockwise.

This sprayer offers a hopper gun option where you can use he hopper gun as a gravity feed spray gun to apply your material.

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.

If you do a lot of painting, then you need a durable and strong sprayer to get you through your workday. This cart sprayer on wheels weighs approximately 42lbs. Since this unit is a bit on the large side, you have to be aware that it can fit in and around the project your spraying.

This paint machine from Graco features all of the benefits that you’ve come to expect from a quality Graco product. This unit can spray stains, oils, and most types of materials with 0 issues due to the high running 3000 PSI.

The 0.875 horsepower motor can be customized by using the variable control feature to reduce the intensity of the motor, which allows you to dial in the power for whatever material and surface you’re painting.

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

Fully adjustable paint controls are great for customizing your spray to any project. The RAC IV SwitchTip allows you to reverse the tip and unclog it fast and easy.

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, but only comes with a 50 foot hose. You’re going to get a lot of work done with this equipment by your side.

Included in your purchase are:

  • 50 foot hose
  • SG3 Gun
  • RAC spray guard
  • 515 airless spray tip
  • Graco pump armor
  • Fast Flush adapter
  • Guides and Manuals

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. 

The Push Primer button just needs to be pushed a few times to get things running. As with most Graco Sprayers, it comes equipped with a ProX Change Pump that let’s you change out the pump and its components easily. Graco quality means that it is not very likely you’ll have to replace the pump anytime soon after you buy it. Graco parts are easily sourced and can be bought anywhere.

The Fast Flush adapter means you can just insert a hose into a bucket filled with water, soap or whatever cleaning agent you’re using and run the sprayer until the water flows out clear.

Titan Control Max 1700

best airless sprayer titan controlmax 1700
  • HEA technology that decreases overspray by up to 55%
  • Max operating pressure of 1500 PSI
  • 50 foot hose
  • Spray up to 300 gallons per year
  • 0.60 horsepower pump that can spray unthinned paints and stains up to 0.33 gallons/minute
  • 2 year warranty

This sprayer is perfect for DIYer that have a ton of projects to complete but doesn’t do commercial painting for a living. 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 because of the lower PSI of 1500 compared to other airless sprayers that have 3000 PSI. 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 100 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.

Control Max 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.

Graco Magnum X7 Cart Airless Sprayer 

  • 125 gallons annually
  • Easy to clean
  • 0.625 HP w/3000 PSI
  • 0.31 gallons per minute
  • Adjustable paint flow control
  • Spray unthinned paints directly from bucket
  • PowerFlush Adapter connects to a garden hose for fast and easy cleaning

Expect a quality machine when you purchase Graco’s Magnum X7 Cart Sprayer. The cart provides a ton of mobility for moving around larger scale projects.

When we ran this machine through its paces during testing we loved the fully adjustable paint flow control. Included is a 515 tip, which by itself can handle a ton of different paint mediums. Additionally, this unit can accommodate tips from .009 inch to 0.07 inch that you can buy HERE. This will enable you to spray thinner materials that this high PSI machine may otherwise have issues with due to that 3000 PSI output.

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 is due to the high 3000 operating PSI put out by this paint machine.

This commercial machine comes with a 25 foot hose but can accommodate a 100 foot hose, so you can spray plenty of 2 and 3 story homes without issues.

Equipped with the RAC IV 515 Switch Tip, you can reverse the tip to solve any clogging issues.

Convenience is king with this model. On top of the cart for mobility, there is a hook on the front of the unit to mount your paint buckets.

This unit comes with the SG2 metal spray gun, which is top notch Graco quality and lightweight to prevent any wrist fatigue. Incorporated into the design is an inline paint filter directly on the gun.

Clean up goes much faster because of the included PowerFlush Adapter that connects to a garden hose for quick and thorough cleaning. A bottle of pump armor is also included for when you need to store your X7.

It’s only limitation is the 125 annual use recommendation.  This is perfect for the hardcore DIYer but if you need more gallons/year, consider stepping up to the super popular X17 or the Graco Magnum ProX19.

TCP Global Commercial 2.5 Gallon Tank

  • Working Pressure 20-30 PSI
  • Weighs 45 lb
  • Air inlet/outlet 1/4 inch
  • Fluid outlet 3/8 inch
  • 1 year warranty
  • Sprays a ton of mediums including adhesives

If you’re looking to go bigger and better. You’re going to use a product like the TCP Global Commercial 2.5-Gallon Spray Paint Pressure Pot Tank.

For an inexpensive pressure tank, the TCP Global Commercial 2.5-Gallon Spray Paint Pressure Pot Tank provides a ton of benefits for large-scale solutions.

What can you do if you have a large project that requires paint spraying? Are you going to languish over those tiny sprayers that give you an hour’s worth of work per charge at best? Of course not.

Here are the specifications that you’ll want to know about this particular unit.

  • It offers a tank fluid pressure gauge that ranges from 0-100 PSI.
  • The optimal working pressure for the unit is between 20-30 PSI, with maximum pressure at 90 PSI.
  • The air outlet and inlet are ¼-inch. The fluid outlet is 3/8-inch. Inside diameter and depth are both 9.5 inches.
  • You are only getting the tank and have to purchase a gun and hose separately.

This particular unit features a clamp-on lid design that works with a manual crank agitator for mixing.

Many users have commented about the ability (or inability) of the TCP Global Commercial 2.5-Gallon Spray Paint Pressure Pot Tank to maintain pressure levels while unattended.

We pressure-tested the unit for 7 days to see how well it would operate. The paint pressure tank tank loses about 1 PSI per day, on average, but tends to lose a little more at higher pressure levels.

With 10 liters of total capacity, you’ll be able to handle almost any commercial or large-scale painting situation that you face for one heck of a price.

Our one area of concern is the positioning of the valves. They’re a bit awkward and there’s no real way to get a fix done to provide some relief.

You can read the pressures just fine, but the actual valve position can be difficult to see with this design.

Graco Project Painter Plus

  • Fully adjustable pressure
  • 1 year warranty
  • Includes 515 tip
  • Spray unthinned paint directly from paint can or bucket
  • Easy clean up with PowerFlush adapter
  • Annual Use up to 50 gallons/year

With this Graco airless spray gun, you receive a paint sprayer that is fully adjustable. You stay in control of the flow of the paint as you work to create specific results.

At the same time, the stainless-steel piston pump is strong enough to let you spray paint that hasn’t been thinned at a high enough pressure for consistent results.

This unit works best when spraying thicker paint mediums like latex. Stains and lacquers will need to have a thicker viscosity for this unit to spray them with good results.

I love the fact that this unit takes paint directly from the can or bucket. The paint supply hose is flexible and works with both 1 gallon and 5 gallon cans and buckets. Most other models have a rigid paint hose that can cause issues and come out of your paint can/bucket when moving around your projects. This results in air getting into your paint system and having to stop, bleed the line and then begin painting again. This could result in a not so professional finish on your paint surface.

Hook yourself up with a 20 inch extension rod and save your back.

When storing (and after cleaning), put some Graco Pump Armor into your sprayer to protect the pump parts.  You’ll thank me later.

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

We also appreciated the easy-to-access adjustable pressure controls that are on this Graco paint spray gun

Everything you need is placed on a dial that is easy to turn, even while working, and the symbols for each setting are placed in such a way that you can easily see them so you don’t have to guess at what you’re doing.

Fully adjustable
Little overspray

Weighs 15 lbs

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.

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

graco magnum x5 airless best paint sprayer
  • Spray unthinned paint directly from 1 or 5 gallon buckets
  • RAC IV Switch tip lets you reverse the tip to clear out clogs
  • Annual use up to 125 gallons/year
  • Easy cleanup with PowerFlush Adapter
  • Sprays up to 27 gallons/hour

The Graco Magnum X5 Airless Paint Sprayer will help you get the job done in even some of the most challenging situations. The Graco Magnum X5 Airless Sprayer is recommended as a light duty machine. It’s great for staining your deck or your fence. Bring it inside and you’ll be able to quickly paint a ceiling without the mess a roller tends to give you.

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.

This model spray up to 27 gallons per hour, which is more than most models in the hardcore DIYer category. You’re given full control over the paint flow pressure at all times.

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. This sprayer will accommodate a painting hose of up to 75 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.

Once your done with your sprayer, use Graco Pump Armor to protect the internal parts and the pump.

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
Large annual gallon usage rating

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 for a Paint Machine

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.

JobTip Size
Furniture (Oil)517 or 619
Coatings (Poly)313, 413, 415, 515
Walls/Ceilings (Latex)313, 413, 415, 515, 517

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.

Tips for Commercial Paint Machine

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 Should be Easy on Your Commercial Paint Machine

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 for a Paint Machine?

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 Machine?

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?
