Why Spray

Painting with an airless sprayer is faster, better and easier than painting with a traditional brush and roller. With airless spraying, paint or stain is broken up (atomized) into small droplets without the use of compressed air. Instead, the sprayer pumps paint at high pressure from a bucket through a hose to a spray gun. When the gun is triggered, the paint flows through the spray tip, which creates a restriction that causes the paint to atomize into a fine spray pattern.

Why Spray? Why Graco? 01:10


An airless paint sprayer takes little or no more time to set up or clean than traditional painting gear, but you'll be amazed at the time you’ll save in actual painting. You’ll cover more surface area, because an electric pump and motor is putting the paint on the surface instead of your arm and back muscles pushing a roller or brush.

  • Easy to set up
  • Easy to use
  • Easy to clean


Because a quality airless paint sprayer breaks the paint up into a fine spray, it creates a finish that a brush or roller simply can’t duplicate. Even on hard-to-paint projects like cedar siding, window shutters, wicker furniture, or stair balusters, airless spraying creates a professional look and provides superior, longer-lasting protection.

  • Easier to apply paint or stain to both smooth and rough surfaces
  • Provides uniform distribution of material on uneven surfaces


Airless spraying is far less tedious than brushing and rolling, as it eliminates the mess and physical pain of painting with a brush or roller.

  • No bending to refill your roller tray
  • No dripping
  • No messy trays
  • No messy cleanup
