Powered by a DeWalt 20V lithium battery, the Graco TC Pro will make painting easier than you ever thought. Thanks to its unique design, users can spray in any direction – including upside-down.

With the TC Pro Control technology incorporated by Graco, users are able to adjust the output pressure of their spray.

You can go from 0 PSI (though why you would want to do so is a little curious) to 2000 PSI for complete spray control. With varying spray speeds, you can control your overspray technique to create excellent finishes every time.

What You Receive with the Graco TC Pro Paint Sprayer

Inside the box are a bunch of goodies that users will enjoy with their purchase of the Graco TC Pro Cordless Airless Paint Sprayer. Here is what you get.

According to the manufacturer, users can receive up to 1 gallon of paint spraying on a single battery charge.

For practical purposes, we found that to be about 45 minutes of stop-and-start time or 30 minutes of continuous painting.

Pros of the Graco TC Pro Airless Paint Sprayer

The primary benefit of  the Graco Truecoat is its versatility. It claims that no thinning is required for paints or stains, so we put that claim to the test.

It performed well, providing a smooth finish that was nice and even on a consistent basis. The control over the spray is extremely helpful in this, allowing users to work at a speed that is comfortable for them.

The Graco Truecoat Pro works just as well with stains as it does with paint.

Cons of the Graco TC Pro

Be sure to use the flexline bags for stains, however, as the disbursement cup is susceptible to staining.

Straining the paint is also necessary. Any changes to the texture of the paint or stain does create a bit of a problem for the TC Pro.

You must also work in an almost continuous fashion to prevent the paint or stain from drying within the unit. If you pause for more than 15 minutes, you’ll need to clean the equipment before continuing again.

The TC Pro does weigh a good 10 pounds when fully loaded, so it may prove to have some difficult handling for some users.

Wrist fatigue could be problematic for some users as well.
