    Default Airless sprayer

    I am looking for a decent airless sprayer.
    The job at hand is to paint a 75 m2 deck with solid paint. Long story short, it's open and lots of trees around it keep it permanently black with mold regardless of what we do to it.
    The pump will also help in painting the house cladding eventually.

    Since i have no clue about this contraptions, my first port of call was the local paint shop and I almost fell over at the prices. Cheapest was $1500 and it looked toylike. the good looking ones were $2500 . Whaaaat?

    So, considering I will most likely use this once or twice a year if that, does anyone here has any experience with cheaper brands?
    I managed to read a few reviews, but I am none the wiser.

    Came up with this one. The same brand makes a smaller size, but for $200 difference I thought, double the power ... should make it at least closer to a decent tool?

    Here is the smaller version

    All ideas / experiences appreciated.

    Is it worthwhile looking at one of these.

    With a 4 year warranty and usually no issue in returns from this store it will give you 4 seasons to give it a workout rather than 1 for returns.
    Never used them.

    I bought one of the cheap ebay ones, trolley on wheels overhangs a 15l paint drum, at the time in the $3-400 range. The links you provided would be similar in quality I would expect.
    Painted multiple exterior houses, and a number of roof's with no issue and over a span of 10 years. Very happy with its operation and finish.

    Best advice for any airless sprayer is thorough cleaning straight after use and when put away run some glycol through the pump.

    If you're only using it once or twice a year it may be better to hire one?
    That way you can hire a top level professional unit which are a lot better to use than the cheaper versions, and it won't cost you a small fortune.
    When painting the deck, make sure you get one with a suitably long spray lance.

    Our local hire place used to charge $100 a day which I thought was reasonable, but for $255 I see your point.

    get a cheap one, I bought a $1000 ASM sprayer, bought by Graco, still works well but tend to break when not used often, at $249 it will pay for itself each job

    See how I go.
