The two PainWiz Paint sprayers are quite similar to each other in many areas. They both offer a variety of spray patterns, HVLP systems, accessory packages.
Compact Accessories Package
Both systems include standard 800mm cups for standard projects, but they also have many more tools in the package. There is an extra 1.3 Liter Cup, 1.8mm nozzle, a viscosity cup, 3 mesh strainers, cleaning brush and owner’s manual. PaintWiz offers a complete package of a product so that the control and maintenance are both entirely in your hand.
Variable Flow Control
You never know what type of project you’re going to be working on, so having the ability to transition quickly between different modes of painting (large or small scale) would be a very handy feature to have. Luckily, both the PaintWiz sprayers have that ability, through the technology ‘Variable Flow Control’ that instantly switches between large spray surface and detail-oriented spray with just a few simple adjustments.
Spray Tip (Nozzle)
Both the sprayers have 2.6mm nozzle and 1.8mm spray tips that help with the precision and control of the paint job.
While there are many similarities in both products, they are fundamentally different by how they are designed; one is turbine operated and other is handheld. There are also a few dissimilarities that come with that.
Power Supply And Pressure
The power supply needed for the MAX Paint Sprayer is 564 watt and a 4.7 Amp motor while the Handheld sprayer needs only a 400 watt, 3 Amp motor. The handheld one will save electricity bills by a short margin, but the MAX will get the job done more quickly. The two different motors produce different pressures. The MAX produces 3 PSI which slightly more than the Handheld unit at 2.5 PSI. The more the pressure the finner will be the particles that will come out of the sprayer give you a better finish.
The MAX paint sprayer turbine is installed with an air filter that prolongs the life of the turbine motor; the air filter is also replaceable. But the handheld version’s motor lacks and air filter and you have to work with what you get. Air filters the air the turbine sucks in protecting the turbine. Air filter extends the life of the turbine.
Paint Options, Control & Other Features
The MAX paint sprayer can handle a variety of materials whether dense and thick; even latex. Whereas the Handheld sprayer is designed primarily for thinner materials like lacquer, and not very good for latex-based paints.
The MAX paint sprayer turbine comes with a 20-feet long high-flex air hose that extends the range of your work, but it does makes working indoors with it a hassle. The handheld version does not have a hose and is controlled freely.
Q. Can both of the Sprayers be used in Indoor/Outdoor settings?
Ans: Yes, both of them can be used indoor/outdoor projects, but the MAX paint sprayer with it’s higher variety of paint options will give more versatility outdoors.
Q. Does it use a regular Outlet Plug?
Ans: Both the sprayer use standard two-prong power cord and 110-120V outlet. Adapters can also be used.
Q. Does this need a separate air compressor?
Ans: No compressor needed.
Q. Can it be used with oil-based paint?
Ans: The MAX paint sprayer can be used with oil-based paints just fine, but with the Handheld paint sprayer, its safe to thin it with paint thinner.
Both PaintWiz models are modern HVLP painters, easy and quick. They are safe, will not overspray or make a mess out of your job. If you are an enthusiast DIYer you will definitely be pleased with the result produced by any of these two. So don’t wait anymore, and buy the one that suits your needs.
