From our list of the Best Airless Paint Sprayer comes the Graco Magnum X5 airless paint sprayer. This is a superb choice for any homeowner or painter trying to knock out big projects in little time. You have 75 feet of hose to work with while moving around. When the work’s all done it is hooked onto the water hose and the hose will clean itself off with the water pressure to save a lot of time. This is a big investment, but it will be worth your while with this great design.

Why We Like It – Graco Magnum 262800 Airless Sprayer

The Graco Magnum 262800 Airless Paint Sprayer is a unique sprayer that will save you time while painting projects at home or on the job. This model is easy enough for the DIYer or pro to use because of the simple design. All you really have to do is put the suction tube into a paint bucket and you’re already halfway there. What is best about this product is the 75 feet of hose that comes with every purchase, there is no better feeling than working with a sprayer that has enough hose to freely move around.

  • Connects to paint bucket
  • Easy Rinse off by connecting to hose
  • It is expensive


One unique aspect about this product is that you place the suction tube into the paint bucket and that will be the supply for the Graco X5, which I thought was really neat and makes the double tank design from models like the Wagner Spraytech 0518050 Airless Paint Sprayer seem rather useless when you can just use the whole bucket as supply instead. While you spray your paint, you have full control over it with the adjustable pressure control. The X5 stand airless paint sprayer is also a lightweight design that makes it easy to carry.


This stainless steel sg2 spray design can be easily cleaned; all you have to do after your job is done is connect it to a hose to rinse off. When you’re moving around a large area, rest assured that you have 75 feet of hose at your disposal. The annual use recommended for not overworking your unit is about 125 gallons per year, so be wary of how much gallons you use. If your paint ever gets clogged, there is a reverse tip size that easily unclogs your nozzle.


The Magnum X5 airless sprayer will work with various amounts of oil based paints and will leave unthinned streaks thanks to the high pressure power flush adapter and the maximum tip. This tool is slightly expensive, but there are cheaper models from our list like the REXBETI Ultimate 750 Airless Paint Sprayer. The pressure controls paint usage, so spray painting can be more productive. The rate of paint used is about .27 gallons per minute.

Graco Magnum 262800 Airless Sprayer Wrap Up

This SG2 metal spray gun by Graco is a great choice if you want to heavily invest in one spray painter that will outmatch many of the competition like the HomeRight C800971 Airless Paint Sprayer. The X5 paint sprayer’s pump armor will be a breeze to clean when it is connected to a hose. The power flush adapter will leave unthinned paint streaks for a more professional finish, and you will not waste any paint thanks to the adjustable paint flow.
