IWATA spraygun WOW!!!

I tried out an IWATA LPH-400 spraygun today, simply awesome atomization and material transfer. My paint supplier has been trying to get me to give this gun a try for awhile now and I finally had the chance today. What well engineered tool. The pattern was consistant from top to bottom and delivered a 14" pattern at it's widest setting. It puts the clear on smoother than anything I've ever sprayed with before. The shops in my area have been switching to this gun at a steady rate, which sparked my interest. I'll be buying one soon. If anyone here is in the market for a new gun and has an oportunity to try one of these out don't pass it up. I'm impressed. Time to sell my Sata's and other guns. Just thought I'd pass this along. Bob

My cost on this gun is $360, very very economical for such a quality gun. One of the nicest features on this gun is the uniform pattern from top to bottom, most guns tend to spray very oval in shape with a much larger concentration in the center. Nice flat pattern with this gun which gives you more control. Try one. Air consumption is also far less than other HVLP guns and it doesn't require a large compressor or the High Flow air fittings, just a standard common 1/4" connector! There's some new technology in this gun with airflow holes placed in the cap in areas I've never seen before. Bob

I used one a while ago. i couldnt beleive how smooth it operates. here i was thinking "man my sata 2000 is killer" nope i was wrong. the iwata is alot better for custom painting.. kandies etc. but for normal painting i guess you wouldnt really need it. but if you can afford to have one around i would suggest buying one.

I'm getting one as soon as funds allow.
Iwatta is without a doubt the BEST gun made PERIOD.
They have held like 80% of the WORLD market and have not even been concerned with the US as we have SO many manuf. they would be competing with.
The REALLY nice feature is,
ALL the tip set's will interchange with any of their guns.
The big gun is the same as the touch up tip set,ect.
I forget what they call the new tip technology,It looks like an Iron Cross of sorts but is the **** for coverage and is NOT HVLP.
They have been working on it for quite sometime now and have really come up with something special.Craig Fraiser gave me the low down at his seminar and I can't recall all the perticulars on exactly how the atomization process works but it is fantastic with what they have accomplished.

The thing I like BEST about the company is the fact that they design their equipment from painters in the field rather than some over paid egghead in a cube at the office.

If I sound like a comercial, Sorry, Just damn great gun's.

I bought my first gun(IWATA) back in 1980 or so, I was station in Japan and was starting the learning process of painting. I just retired the ole girl this year. I have been somewhat out of the "CURVE" of things and I bought the Sharpe Finex 300 and Finex Mini. I had know idea I could get another Iwata. .......Enjoy it....Randy
