You will need a wide boy bucket and a special frame.
How much should it cost - few rollers (do I need a few or can i just wash it?) , tray, and handle?

Two things:

  1. when you say cut I am assuming you mean to use the brush for edges/perimeter?
  2. where do I get an 18" roller???? never seen one of those. Amazing to hear they exist.
Yes, as brush pointed out, you'll need to get the kit for an 18. I'm still using my old sherlock kit for the 18. From what I've seen there are some frames that are more user friendly. Maybe someone else can recommend. Yes, use the three inch brush to cut all the corners/frames, etc. Make sure you get at least a three inch coverage because the 18 doesn't go in as close to the wall/corners as a nine, so you need a wider cut-in. The cost of the kit is much lower than a sprayer rental, and you get to keep it forever. An 18" cover is around nine-ten bucks, not sure. But they double your output so they're worth it. I usually get one for each different finish I'm using (ceiling/walls, if different) and toss them when I'm done. If you have another project coming up soon, you can wrap it in plastic and store it for a good while. You'll also need a telescopic paint pole to attach the frame to.

Cover is for protecting against drips? You say it doubles output - how is that? Interesting

Cover is the sleeve, nap, 1/2 device. Same thing.
Double big, double fast, double heavy.

They are- but they can rock if you like them. Personally I usually use a 14"- only can get on line- I get them here_:

Nice split between fast and heavy. I use the 14" open end frame.
There are lots of different tools in this painting trade...

John, they can be heavy, though I don't know about unwieldly. I use more of my bodyweight to move it back and forth, as opposed to just my arms. I do with all rolling, but moreso with an 18. When I roll ceilings I sort of keep my arms locked and gently rock side to side somewhat on the balls of the feet and that motion carries the roller with it. When you roll walls lean in to the wall and pull back, holding the pole in place and slightly bending from the hip. I spell that out in one of my articles on rolling ceilings and walls at suite101.com, in the bottom link of my signature.
