Titan 250 vs 440


I have been spraying interior doors, some cabinets with HVLP and brushing trim. I do thin the latex with water and floetrol. Its slow but nice finish.
Would like to go Airless.
Will the Titan 250 2800psi atomize as well as the Titan 440 3000psi (BM impervo)
I will not be using it much maybe 20-25gal per year.
Is the 250 cheaper because the pump has a shorter life span??
Will the finish be the same for both units?
I do plan on using Floetrol still. I need a nice smooth finish.

If you can afford it I would go with the 440. Yes it has a bigger pump and will last longer and it will atomize better. I went from HVLP to airless and liked the result a lot better. I was using SW pro classic and I had to thin it so much for the HVLP that the water and the Flotrol affected the drying the hot air from the turbine dried some areas too fast and the finish looked uneven. But let me say I was using a cheap HVLP model.
I would suggest trying the airless without the flotrol I think the finish will surprise you with how smooth it is.
Let us know the outcome.

Both should last about the same, but the 440 will perform better overall. There should not be much difference in the finish.

Good Luck!
