#graco spray gun

On a regular basis we receive questions about replacement spray guns for the Graco Airless spraying machine, once the guns are defect or not functionable. It is quite difficult for painters to choose the right spray gun from the bright range of Graco Airless guns. To give you an overview and some clarity, we have made the following video.

We will introduce several Graco guns and explain their use. Furthermore, we will inform you about which gun is delivered with which Graco Airless spraying machine and sort the right filter for every spray gun. In doing so we included the colour application of the Graco Contractor PC, it’s precursor the Graco Contractor, the SG3 and FT gun. For the plaster application we included the HD Blue Texture and Graco HD Inline gun.

Not included are the spray guns for industrial application like the Graco XTR and Silver Plus/Flex guns, like the Inline lance gun.
