Enter the Earlex. This professional quality spray gun can help you get a number of projects completed quickly so you can make sure you get the results you want.
If you're looking for a lightweight and compact solution for your spraying needs, then your options can be somewhat limited today. Many sprayers offer good results for specific needs, but very few can offer consistency over a wide range of general applications.
The earlex Spray Station 5500 delivers consistent results with easy spray pattern adjustments on the fly.
Here are some of the other features we discovered about this Earlex model that help it to stand out against the competition.
|Easy Spray Adjustments||Only comes with 1 tip|
|Consistent Results||Motor is a bit loud|
|Sprays latex, lacquers, varnishes, oils, stains, sealants||Hose easy to dislodge|
What we really liked about this Earlex Spray Station was the fact that the spray pattern adjustments come with a push and click type of design.
Instead of fiddling with difficult knobs or dials, you simply push to receive the pattern adjustments that your next project requires.
This gives even contractors the power they'll need to get some of their jobs completed on time.
The portability and on board storage of this unit are well thought out making it easy to carry with you or store it when not in use.
If you're tired of the messes and inconsistent coverages that brushes and rollers can provide you at times, especially for decking and other exterior work, then you're going to love what the Earlex HV5500 Spray Station is able to do.
Although we are generally pleased with the results this Earlex Sprayer is able to provide, there are a few changes we would like to see.
For example: when you purchase this product, the only tip you get out of the box is a 2mm tip.
To spray certain finishes, you'll need to invest into several different tips to maximize the use of this machine. You'll likely use a 1.5mm tip/nozzle at least. When purchasing this unit, also purchase additional tips so your covered for all your projects.
The motor on this spray station, though effective, can also be a bit loud. Even with hearing protection on, it can be enough to leave your ears ringing for a bit after you're done working.
We also found that the hose for this particular unit can be easy to dislodge from the unit especially since it is only 13 feet long. If you have larger areas to cover, consider buying a longer hose.
Although it's somewhat flexible, we found that it can become detached while you're working on a project. We recommend purchasing a different hose or reinforcing where the hose attaches to the unit.

This Spray Station is super useful for the DIYer. It can handle basically any material you throw at it. This includes lacquers, varnishes, oils, stains and even sealants. This saves you money because you won't need to purchase multiple paint sprayers to get all your jobs done.
If you are painting with latex, as with most paint sprayers, you will need to thin the paint unless you are using a lower quality latex paint which tends to be thinner.
If you need a real workhorse to get all your projects done with consistent, professional results, then this unit is what you need.
