Fuji Mini Mite 4 Review
The Fuji Mini Mite HVLP series is as good as the premier product series from Fuji – the Q Platinum series. They have all the same features except for the noise reduction technology used on the Q series and the speed control knob of the turbine with Q5. It is noisy but costs much less than the Q series.
The Fuji Mini Mite 4, with its 4 fan turbine can produce 9 PSI of pressure for atomization and an excellent finish. The pressure is good enough for viscous paint without much thinning.
All the sprayer system from Fuji come with a standard 25-foot hose, so the turbine can be placed away from your work area. And this is very much recommended as the overspray paint may be sucked in by the filter, requiring frequent cleaning.
Did I mention, they have an excellent customer service?

What is 3 Stage, 4 Stage, and 5 Stage Motor
The 5 stage motor of the Mini Mite 5 model produces 9.5 PSI for finer atomization and greater finish. The Mini Mite 4 model produces 9 PSI and Mini Mite 3 produces 6 PSI of pressure. The higher the pressure the more viscous materials can be sprayed with it.
The number “4” in the name “Fuji Mini Mite 4 Platinum” stands for number of fans the sprayer system turbine motor has. So Min-Mite 3 has three motor fans and the Min-Mite 5 has five. A system with more fans costs more. Besides the price tag, what does more fan mean to you?
First off, more fans mean more pressure, as mentioned earlier. The 3 stage motor spins faster than the 4 stage motor and the 4 stage motor spins faster than 5 stage and so on. Faster spinning means more wear and tear which means more breakdowns and more expense for maintenance. It also means more downtime and potential business loss – loss of income.
More fans create more pressure and the speed at which you paint. The Min-Mite 3 produces 6 PSI, Min-Mite 4 produces 9 PSI and the Min-Mite 5, 9.5 PSI. At higher PSI the paint is atomized finer for more professional finish and can spray more viscous materials.
Besides the above-mentioned differences, there are several common features of the Mini-Mite series. The “Platinum” means it is the best product in this category of paint sprayer system from Fuji.
Noise Reduction Covers (NRC)
The three models have the Noise Reduction Covers (NRC) that reduces the noise made by the turbine.
Ambient air is entrained only from the rear effectively removing any Direct Sound Paths. Air is drawn in through specially designed ‘Finger Slots’ for optimum performance.
Heat Dissipation Chamber
Turbines of the Sprayer System produce a lot of heat and it builds up in the turbine. Fuji Spray has designed a technique that removes the excess heat by channeling it to the Heat Dissipation Box located at the back of the case. Hot air is dissipated evenly through an optimum surface area with 60 holes, there is no added hiss or loud whistling noise. The result is a cooler operating temperature and a longer life for the system compared to other standard systems.
Each of the 3 models of the Mini-Mite System support 3 different models of spray guns. The three models of the spray guns are:
- T-Model™ – T70
- T-Model™ – T75G
The “G” in the model means that the gun is a gravity gun. Siphon fed T70 has a cup capacity of 1 Quart (1000cc) and comes with a 1.3mm Air Cap. The T75G is a gravity gun with a capacity of 0.63 Quart (600cc) and also comes with a 1.3mm Air Cap. And the GXPC has a capacity of 0.42 Quart (400cc) comes with 1.4mm Air Cap.
The T-Model™ delivers an enhanced spray pattern for exceptional performance. The new sleek design is ergonomic and well balanced.
The G-XPC, T-Model – T70 and the T-Model™ – T75G non-bleed Gravity Spray Gun features an exclusive side Pattern Control Knob to adjust the Fan Size. The Fan Pattern is adjustable from 1” to 15” from 8” distance.
They all come with a 25ft Hi-Flex Hose with Quick-Connect, Air Control Valve, User Manual, Viscosity Cup, Wrench, and Cleaning Brush. The system runs on both 110-120 V and 220-240 V electricity.
Paint Type Supported
Paint Types: Most types of paints are supported such as Nitrocellulose lacquers, sealer, cellulose, acrylics, synthetics, polyurethane, stains, varnish, primers, water-based finishes, oil-based paints, urethanes, enamel, latex and many more. Please refer to the Air Cap Set Information to see which Cap size supports which type of paint.
If you take a look at the average rating of the product, you will know that the customers who used the product were quite happy with it. Most of the people loved the minimal overspray which they experienced when they went for latex. The results were great and this product turned out to be a huge time saver for them. The finish obtained was also perfect. The tool proved to be very advantageous for the DIYers who were looking for a professional finish in their work.
Fuji 2049F 6-Foot Flexible Whip Hose
The hosepipe that comes with the system is flexible but a bit rigid when you are going to be doing any inside cabin work. The Fuji 2049F 6-Foot flexible whip hose is your solution. The Whip hose is very lightweight and flexible. It can twist and bend any sharp and difficult corner, making your gun much more maneuverable.
It’s made from glass fiber-reinforced polymer. This lightweight material takes the weight off your wrist allowing effortless maneuverability of the of the spray gun.
This additional length of 6 feet along with the provided 25 feet allows for further cooling of the air as it travels a longer distance from the turbine. This often alleviates problems with fast drying lacquers (and Latex House Paint) drying too quickly.
This particular whip hose is also compatible with other HVLP sprayer systems from other brands.
Q: Does it come with the 3 guns?
Ans: No, only one gun is included in the package
Q: Can you paint Autos with this?
Ans: Yes, you can.
Q: Is it noisy?
Ans: It is as noisy as vacuum cleaners; maybe a bit more.
With so many features, this paint sprayer system is for sure a good investment. The noise cannot be avoided when the machine is running, but that problem has a solution. You can go for the noise reduction covers to minimize the noise produced and take care of the issue.
The Fuji Mini Mite series may not be suitable for large projects, the Air-Assisted system may be a better option. But for car, furniture, cabinets, and woodwork or any other projects that require a great finish, look no further. The Mini-Mite series is cost-effective with a great finish.
