1. Graco Magnum 262805 X7 – Powerful Airless Latex Paint Sprayer

Graco Magnum 262805 X7
  • Type: Airless
  • Power Source: AC/DC
  • Max. Pressure: 3000 PSI
  • Weight: 23 pounds

Top of the list is this powerful sprayer, which is equipped with a strong 5/8 horsepower motor and a stainless-steel piston pump that can push out unthinned latex paint at a high pressure of 3000 PSI. This gives a high flow rate of 0.31 gal/min for quick application.

A 25-foot dura flex hose is included with this unit, and it provides the pathway to a high precision 0.017-inch spray tip, which delivers a fine jet for high-quality finishing. This tip is also reversible, which makes it easy to undo clogs in case of any blockage.

Apart from the 25-foot hose, this sprayer can support an additional 75 feet, and this will give you enough allowance to spray your latex paint around your project, including to move to second and third floors if painting walls.

You also get adjustable pressure for paint flow control and a flexible suction tube that can be used on a 1- or 5-gallon bucket. The only problem is that this product is very costly.

Pros:

  • Powerful with a high flow rate for quick application
  • Includes a 25-foot hose and can support a total of 100 feet for extended reach
  • High precision spray tip that is reversible for easy clog removal
  • Adjustable pressure

Cons:

  • Expensive

2. Graco Magnum 262800 X5 – Latex Paint Sprayer with a Reversible Tip

Graco Magnum 262800 X5
  • Type: Airless
  • Power Source: AC/DC
  • Max. Pressure: 3000 PSI
  • Weight: 13 pounds

Just like when dealing with other coats, latex paint might cause clogging on the tip. This Magnum X5 is equipped with a 515 RAC IV spray tip, which is easily reversible so as to clear any blocking plugs with a simple twist.  

This enables you to work uninterrupted while a power flush adapter makes it easy to connect to a garden hose adapter for easy cleaning after use.

You also get a 25-foot hose with support of up to 75 feet for extended reach, a stainless-steel piston pump that can spray unthinned latex paint at the maximum pressure of 3000 PSI and a pressure adjustment knob for giving you more control over the paint’s flow rate.

However, this tool does not have an adjustable spray pattern, which would come in handy when switching between painting vertical and horizontal surfaces.

Pros:

  • Reversible spray tip for undoing clogs with ease
  • Power flush adapter for connecting to a garden hose for easy cleaning
  • Comes with a 25-foot paint hose and can support up to 75 feet
  • Pressure adjustment knob for more control over the paint flow

Cons:

  • Nonadjustable spray pattern

3. Critter Spray Products 22032 118SG – Lightweight Latex Paint Sprayer

Critter Spray Products 22032 118SG
  • Type: Siphon
  • Power Source: Pneumatic
  • Max. Pressure: 90 PSI
  • Weight: 1.65 pounds

With a lightweight 1.65-pound spray gun, Critter’s 118SG is very easy to handle because it places very little pressure on your hand. This means reduces hand fatigue, especially when spraying for long periods of time.

That said, the gun comes with a 16-ounce glass mason jar, which can be filled with latex paints, lacquers, stains, etc., depending on your project’s requirements. You can also use it to spray contact cement for laminations, as well as in other gluing projects.

Other features include adjustable material flow by moving the fluid nozzle up or down and an easy-to-clean design that requires you to simply pass air through the gun.

However, no pump or turbine is included with this kit. Instead, you need at minimum a 3/4 horsepower compressor that can generate up to 3 CFM at 90 PSI. Also, the included glass jar can easily break if mishandled.

Pros:

  • Lightweight
  • Usable with paints, stains, lacquers and gluing applications such as contact cement
  • Adjustable material flow
  • Easy-to-clean

Cons:

  • Turbine/pump not included
  • The included glass jar can easily break if mishandled

4. Astro Pneumatic Tool 4008 – Best Air Compressor Paint Sprayer for Latex

Astro Pneumatic Tool 4008
  • Type: Siphon
  • Power Source: Pneumatic
  • Max. Pressure: 60 PSI
  • Weight: 3 pounds

Astro Pneumatic Tool’s 4008 stands out as one of the best air-compressor-powered paint sprayers for latex because of a couple of reasons.

For starters, it has a fully adjustable wide fan pattern that can be enlarged up to 11 inches in size from a spraying distance of 8 inches. This allows you to apply an even coat while also reducing the work duration by switching to a wide jet with superior atomization for faster coverage.

The tool also has an anti-spill air feed line, which allows you to spray at any angle while maintaining optimal suction and without paint spillage.

You also get a sturdy 32-ounce aluminum cup, air and fluid control valves, a 1.8mm nozzle and a 50-60 PSI operating pressure. However, you need an additional compressor to run this gun, which should have a power rating of 3 HP minimum.

Pros:

  • Fully adjustable fan pattern for more control
  • Anti-spill air feed line allows for spraying at any angle
  • Air and fluid flow control valves
  • Sturdy 32-ounce aluminum cup

Cons:

  • Compressor not included

5. Campbell Hausfeld DH420000AV – Affordable Latex Paint Sprayer

Campbell Hausfeld DH420000AV
  • Type: Siphon
  • Power Source: Pneumatic
  • Max. Pressure: 40 PSI
  • Weight: 2.6 pounds

If you are on a tight budget, Campbell Hausfeld’s DH420000AV is an affordable latex paint sprayer to consider.

That said, the unit comes as a gun alone without a turbine or compressor, but is convertible between a bleeder and non-bleeder sprayer for use with tankless or standard compressors, and can be hooked up to paint tanks or remote tanks when working on large projects.

Additionally, the gun is convertible between a siphon-feed and pressure-feed type so as to allow you to work with a variety of materials such as stains, primers, enamel and of course, latex paint.

Other features include a paint flow regulator for controlling the material output, a 1-quart paint cup, internal and external mix air caps and it requires a minimum of 2 CFM at 40 PSI to run.

Pros:

  • Affordable
  • Convertible between a bleeder and non-bleeder type for versatility in compressor use
  • Can be used to spray a wide variety of materials
  • Paint flow regulator for more control

Cons:

  • Compressor not included

6. Rexbeti Ultimate-750 – Adjustable Latex Paint Sprayer

Rexbeti Ultimate-750
  • Type: HVLP
  • Power Source: AC
  • Max. Pressure: N/A
  • Weight: 3.6 pounds

Rexbeti’s Ultimate-750 is equipped with multiple adjustable features that make it very versatile. It has a flow control knob for adjusting the paint output, which makes it easier to switch between edges or corners to large surfaces with minimal wastage.

On top of this, the spray gun’s tip can be adjusted to 3 different spray patterns: round, horizontal and vertical. This allows for painting on wide or narrow surfaces with ease.

You also get 3 nozzles in the set: 2- and 2.5-mm sizes for spraying thin paints and a 3 mm nozzle for milk, chalk and latex paints.

Other features include a 1-liter paint cup (34 ounces) and a soft-grip handle for comfortable use. However, the mounted turbine makes the gun a bit bulky and thus, it might not fit in tight spaces.

Pros:

  • Adjustable flow control
  • Adjustable spray pattern
  • Comes with 3 nozzles (2, 2.5 and 3 mm)
  • Soft grip handle for comfortable use

Cons:

  • Bulky spray gun; might not fit in tight spaces

7. Wagner Spraytech 0518080 – Best HVLP Paint Sprayer for Latex

Wagner Spraytech 0518080
  • Type: HVLP
  • Power Source: AC/DC
  • Max. Pressure: 2.7 PSI
  • Weight: 10 pounds

As an HVLP paint sprayer, Wagner Spraytech’s 0518080 is one of the best for applying latex paint because it has a stationary turbine base that is connected to the gun via a 20-foot hose.

Not only does this give you enough allowance to reach all the corners of your project, but it also leaves less weight and bulkiness on the gun, which means reduced fatigue and a compact sprayer that can fit easily in tight spaces.

Other than that, the sprayer has adjustable paint flow settings for customizing the intensity of the coat, and an adjustable spray pattern that can be switched to vertical, horizontal or circular by turning the air cap.

On the downside, the included spray tip is not adjustable for easy clog removal but at least you get two air filters that keep dust from penetrating into the system.

Pros:

  • Stationary turbine design with a 20-foot hose leaves a less bulky and easily portable gun
  • Adjustable paint flow
  • Adjustable spray patterns
  • 2 air filters for keeping out dust

Cons:

  • Nonreversible spray tip

8. HomeRight C800971.A – Best Latex Paint Sprayer for Beginners

HomeRight C800971.A
  • Type: HVLP
  • Power Source: AC
  • Max. Pressure: N/A
  • Weight: 2.76 pounds

HomeRight’s C800971.A is recommended for beginners because it is easy to use (requires no additional compressor to get down to work), easy to clean and there is a tip selection chart available to guide you in picking the best one for your project from the 3 included pieces.

That said, this product is fitted with a 450-watt turbine that can handle thicker paints, which means less thinning.

Other features include a large 39-ounce paint cup and adjustable paint flow and spray pattern for complete customization and control.

However, the turbine on the head makes the gun very bulky and the tips are not reversible for easy clog removal.

Pros:

  • Easy to use and clean
  • Powerful 450-watt turbine; can handle thick paints without thinning
  • Large 39-ounce paint cup requires less refills
  • Adjustable paint flow and spray pattern

Cons:

  • Nonreversible spray tip
  • Bulky spray gun. Might not fit easily in tight spaces

Graco 17D889
  • Type: Airless
  • Power Source: AC
  • Max. Pressure: 1500 PSI
  • Weight: 3.8 pounds

Graco’s 17D889 is the best spray gun for latex because it is an airless sprayer that packs in a compact stainless-steel piston pump, delivering a relatively high max pressure of 1500 PSI as compared to other gun-only units.

This enables you to spray unthinned paint at high speed and the pressure is adjustable for control over the application speed.

You also get two 0.015-inch reversible spray tips that are easy to unclog, onboard storage for the extra tip, easily reusable and recyclable flex liner paint bags for quick material changing, VacuValve technology that allows you to spray in any angle and a storage/carrying case.

The only problem is that the tool has a short 1.5-foot power cord, which means you need an extension cord for longer reach.

Pros:

  • Relatively high 1500 PSI max pressure rating with adjustable settings
  • Comes with 2 reversible tips that are easy to unclog
  • Reusable and recyclable flex liner paint bags
  • VacuValve technology allows for spraying at any angle

  • Type: Airless
  • Power Source: AC
  • Max. Pressure: 1500 PSI
  • Weight: 37 pounds

This ControlMax 1700 Pro is also an airless sprayer but it is quite unique because it features HEA (High-Efficiency Airless) technology, which reduces overspray by up to 55%, delivering a softer spray with a more consistent finish while also improving the economics of paint use.

Other than that, the unit has a portable cart design that makes it easy to move the heavy 37-pound 0.6 horsepower pump, which delivers up to 1500 PSI and can spray unthinned paints.

The pump has a max flow rate of 0.33 gallons per minute but this speed is adjustable for maximum control and productivity.

Other features include a 50-foot hose with support of up to 100 feet for extended reach, an onboard tool storage area and a paint filter to keep debris from getting into the system. On the downside, this sprayer is quite expensive.

  • Heavy

How to Buy the Best Latex Paint Sprayer

How to Buy the Best Latex Paint Sprayer

1. HVLP, Airless or Siphon

Airless paint sprayers are generally considered the best for applying latex coats because they have high-pressure pumps that allow for the spraying of unthinned paint. This makes them very convenient because, with thinned paint, you need to apply several coats for quality finishing.

Additionally, most Airless units have flexible suction tubes that allow you to spray directly from the paint can, which is very convenient.

HVLP sprayers operate in low pressure and thus, are economical in paint usage, but they are ideal for smaller projects because with low pressure, comes a slow flow rate, which means slow spraying.

As for siphon sprayers, you will need an additional compressor that meets the specific pressure and CFM requirements, which is an additional cost. On the bright side, these guns are usually very affordable.

2. Power

Most HVLP and airless paint sprayers are AC powered via a corded supply but others have a DC power option. This makes them more versatile because they can be powered by a car’s battery in cases where there is no mains power or when there is a blackout.

On the other hand, siphon sprayers are powered via an external compressor and thus, if you already have this pneumatic tool, such a sprayer will be ideal.

3. Flow and Pattern Control

Adjustable speed and spray pattern settings are recommended because they make the sprayer more flexible while also giving you more control over the application process.

Flow control settings let you work at your own pace while pattern control makes it possible to switch between vertical, horizontal or round spraying for optimal application depending on the work surface.

4. Capacity

For those pieces that have paint cups, it is important to consider the size of this container for 2 reasons. It should be large to hold enough paint for minimal refills, but not too large to weigh down the gun and cause hand fatigue. The ideal size is 1 to 1.5 quarts (32 to 48 ounces).

5. Easy Clean-up

No one likes to do the cleaning after spraying. For this reason, you should get a unit that is easy to clean such as Graco Magnum’s X5. This tool is fitted with a power flush adapter that connects to a garden hose and this allows you can pass water through the system to remove all the paint.

Tips for using your Latex Paint Sprayer

Before getting into the actual spraying, there are some things that you need to do first. These are the tips/steps to follow.

  • If your sprayer comes with multiple differently-sized tips, attach the recommended size for latex paint spraying to the gun.
  • Fill the paint cup or insert the suction tube into the paint bucket. Remember to thin it if the sprayer cannot handle thick, unthinned paint.
  • Prime the sprayer if required.
  • Test the sprayer. Start by using the lowest pressure setting then spray at a distance of about 12 inches away from the surface. Make the necessary adjustments until you get the best results, then get down to work.

Conclusion

In summary, airless sprayers are generally considered the best for applying latex paint due to their high pressure/flow rate and their ability to spray unthinned paints. However, their high operating pressure results in wasteful overspray.

For this reason, Titan Tool’s ControlMax 1700 Pro stands out as the best latex paint sprayer due to its high efficiency, and it also packs in a 50-foot hose for extended reach.
