HomeRight Super Max HVLP Sprayer
I started using HomeRight’s Finish Max HVLP (high volume, low pressure) sprayer about a year ago and am happy to report that the little gun is still getting the job done. Thanks to my shop time with it, I got hooked on the speed and quality of HVLP. However, I found myself wanting a more powerful sprayer to deliver paint more quickly. HomeRight must be tapping my phone, because their new “Super” version is just what I was looking for, and for only $30 more than the smaller gun.
The two sprayers look similar, but there are some key differences. The Super sports a larger motor (450 watt vs. 400 watt), a larger cup (40 oz. vs. 27 oz.), plus six needle/tip sets to accommodate different types of finish. (The Finish Max is simply equipped with a 2.0mm needle/tip set.) The three needle/tip sets included with the gun covered the range of the materials that I use (3 additional sets can be purchased separately) without needing to thin the more viscous products.
I love that clean-up is a cinch. After rinsing out the cup, you simply spray solvent through the gun, and then unscrew the nozzle and brush it off. Although the plastic parts might not hold up under a tough production setting, the gun is well-suited for weekend woodworkers.
The Super hasn’t totally replaced my smaller HomeRight gun, but it has become my first choice when using heavier-bodied latex paint, and when finishing larger projects.
