Product Information:

The Earlex Spray Station HV5500 provides the same great lightweight portability, onboard gun, hose storage, spray gun of the HV5000 and a new 650W motor. This along with it's taper fan design, new direct path of air from the turbine hose and larger 22mm-diameter hose, dramatically improves airflow producing 42 CFM at 2.2 PSI!

In the end, this means better atomization across a wide range of finishes and less heat buildup for a professional finish. Comes with a 2.0mm needle standard and as well as a 1.5mm fine finish needle.


  • More power and airflow for increased atomization

  • Compact, lightweight modern design

  • Professional quality gun

  • Push-n-click spray pattern adjustment

  • Includes 1.5mm and 2.0mm needles

  • Easier than ever to get the results you want

    I love my 5500 but...

    Comments about Earlex Spray Station HV5500 HVLP :

    As my fledgling cabinet shop grows so does my need for a quality finish. The Earlex5500 was my first spray set-up and while it did a commendable job on smaller projects and painted work, it just could not give me the smooth finish or speed that my work was demanding. I now use a FujiQ3 for my finish work and use the Earlex for all my stain and paint work. I am far from a "pro" but my experience thus far leaves me with the opinion that the Earlex just can't fully atomize the water-borne finishes we seem to be stuck with here in Kalifornia, and is not powerful enough to efficiently spray larger projects. If you don't do that though, this is a really nice rig and I think you will be pleased with its performance!!

    Comments about Earlex Spray Station HV5500 HVLP :

    Works better than my $900 Apollo ECO-5 and doesn't heat up nearly as bad (very bad feature of the ECO-5). The only issue is the fan pattern which is unique to Earlex, it has no separate fan width adjustment resulting in a spray that is far too wide when that pattern is selected wasting material.

    Comments about Earlex Spray Station HV5500 HVLP :

    The retention clip for the hose is very easily broken. Not sure why this item is so cheap. It is essentially useless after only a few uses. The machine I received had shorter handle rods than in the catalog pictures- rods that attach the machine to its handle? This means I have no clearance between the gun and the handle? Overall seems to work well with a little practice.

    Just used it yesterday to apply GF Antique Cherry water-base stain to a cherry trestle table top. The top is just too large to do by hand. The stain dries too fast and then streaks. With the Earlex I had a beautiful result. Had to thin the stain. Used a crisscross technique with my wife wiping off the excess. Came out perfect the first time. My wife said "That was a great purchase". End of story

    While working with a friend we used his Earlex system to finish a set of custom-made walnut cabinets. The finish we achieved was nothing short of remarkable. It was those results that caused me to purchase my own system. I can't wait to put mine to work. Great Product...Great results!

    Comments about Earlex Spray Station HV5500 HVLP :

    So I have used this on all kinds of finishes. I spray mostly water borne/based finishes, but have used lacquer and shellac. I have also sprayed some oil but probably won't again more because I love water borne/based. It also sprays latex paint well. You do have to thin it a little but that was something I knew I was going to have to do. As for the air hose the problem is that it does not swivel at the gun. I fixed this by going to a friend who is a machinist and had her make me a swivel that fits the gun and the hose.

    Comments about Earlex Spray Station HV5500 HVLP :

    I bought the sprayer to finish guitars. It comes with a 2mm needle assembly and was supposed to include a 1.5 mm needle assembly, however, that was missing and was not sent later even though I told the customer rep about it. The only adjustment on the gun is the orientation of the fan-shaped spray pattern and the trigger travel. I am used to using a double action spray gun that I can control. This gun, with the 2mm needle assembly literally slings huge amounts of thinned lacquer at the guitar. Since I can't adjust the width of the spray pattern I won't be doing any sunbursts with it. I think I can still use it for staining the deck and painting the garage door.
