Camarofiend73 I've read all the threads relating to HVLP guns and decided to try the Harbor Freight #43430. Used it last night and it worked great. I shot bc/cc (White) on the shop truck dually fender-need to colorsand to get the orange peel but overall it came out great.

CivicSlayr Thats the one i ordered, i figered that it was a nice middle groung gun. i don't like computers.

sportbikeluvr if you have a big job Id go with this gun before the detail gun, which I just received last week cant wait to give it a try!

FWIW- Ive heard a lot of guys getting great resluts from those HF hvlp guns!!!

rugbyplayer313 Hey, I have been out of painting for around two years. The last gun I used was a Sata NR95. I'm looking in to buying the new Sata RP. Is the new RP worth buying, or should I go with the NR95 again? Do you need 1/2 or 3/8 airline for the RP?

BarryK Sata RP.
Now your talking a real gun if you can afford it, if not go second best. This has all been covered in above posts. Its what you want to spend and how good you are of a painter.
I want no peel and I only spray high solids clears so I cant use the D-gun. A lot of people do and it works for them.

Comparison, its like comparing a Yugo, Chev, Ford to a Mercedes
They all perform at what they are suppose to do but its all how you look when you arrive!

Oliphant Must be a misunderstanding or they RE-used a number. This is the BRAND NEW Sata Reduced Pressure gun with digital readout in handle. This gun came out just this year. Here is a full reference number and description, this gun is new from SATA:


I probably needed to use the full number to explain. The other numbers are 92098 and 92086-1. These are the same gun, just specifying a differnt tip size.

BarryK Sata 92 is an old has been gun! Thats why no ones compared anything to it. It came out in 1992. Things change.

Oliphant I have been trying to get a comparison on these for a while, and still no dice;

(SATA SAT92xxx series or the DeVilbiss GFG670 , both of these are the new Reduced pressure series)

I think I have read other opinions on the new DeVilbiss, but absolutely no direct comparison anywhere between these two.

roxy2345 Try a Devilbiss Gravity GTI .... cheaper than a Sata and sprays very well

sportbikeluvr Not to make matters worse but Ive read some good things about the Astro HVLP. At the same site as linked above, I picked her up with two other tips (1.3, 1.5 & 1.7) for arnd $130. I havent used it yet but hope to in the next month. I also ordered that HF HVLP Detail gun for $40 but it was backordered till just the other day, Im super relieved that ppl here have had good results with it, I was planning on using it for smaller jobs!

static22 I'm the same way. Not a pro painter but bought two guns that according to the paint supplier where made by Sata and Sharp. A guy standing at the counter commented that he was using them with no problems.

The "kit" came with two guns and a pressure gauge for just over $110. The bodies look just like the Sata guns I was showed. One gun has a 1.4 tip and the other has a 1.7 tip. Hope they work for my one job but if not i'm sure it will not be because of the gun.

6speedwagon just bought a devilbiss finnish line.It had trhe liners for the cup.Too much of a hassle.It was about 125 and came with two tips...a 1.4 and a1.8.I use the 1.8 for primers and surfacers and the 1.4 for base coat and clear.Im not a proffessional so i dont need to spend the 400 for a pros gun.I hope this opinion helps.

BarryK Guess I was told wrong! Let us know how it sprays!

It is out now and available at
Here is the link, great price as well :

(Well apparently the link works ok, even though it is displaying funny. It it gives you any difficulty just try and look for the DeVilbiss, then choose the New reduced pressure section on that page, and you will find it just fine)
