Anyone use a Graco TrueCoat Plus?


I've got 29 interior doors to pain on my two year old house. I want to spray them but don't have access to a sprayer, which puts me in the market to buy one. While reading reviews on the Graco Truecoat plus, I got the impression that one of the reviewers (a pro) used this model to paint interior doors while they were still inside the home.

My question is this: would this spayer allow me to use it inside my home without making a complet mess? I've used airless sprayers before and the is no way I would spray them inside my finished home.

The Graco Proshot is a handheld airless sprayer, piston pump, just like a larger airless sprayer. It will spray latex and oils. You will still have to do some masking if using it indoors.

I use the cordless model for site demos and color sampling for clients. As previously stated, this is a true airless. You will have to mask is you use this indoors. If you're bent on doing this indoors a smaller hvlp may suffice. What you gain in over spray control you lose in production. Graco makes a few smaller models sold in box stores less than 500 bucks. This isn't much higher than the tru coat.
