I was wondering if anyone had tried the HF "Pro" spray guns...

http://www.harborfreight.com/profess...kit-94572.html

For the money getting a 1.4 and a 1.8 tip plus the additional gun seems like a good deal...

Thoughts?

Well, my HF gun crapped out. It sputters and spits. I've cleaned and cleaned and cleaned. Maybe there's something still in it I'm not getting out.

Anyhow, I've been using the blue Titan gun. Works just as well. I've come to the conclusion that you probably can do a decent job with any chinese knock off if you're spraying at 40-45 psi. Here are the results.

LOL ...Hadn't thought of that . The springs that is . I'm sure it's awful light in the back with nothing but a radiator back there .

It is. I tried to put as much as I possibly could back there. The battery is in the back (mounted on top of the frame, it's a PITA to get to) and the stock 12 gallon VW gas tank is over the rear. One of the reasons I just have a flat panel running from the cage main hoop all the way to the rear. It gives me a little wiggle room under there.

That's the kit I bought. They had it on sale, plus I had a coupon for an extra 20% off. I have yet to spray with it so I can't give any ratings on it yet. Hopefully within the next few weeks I will have everything ready for primer.

I may install a 16 gal cell in my bucket this winter from Speeday . 8 gal doesn't go all that far at 14 mpg .

Just a word of warning , open the box and check to make sure you get the right gun, I was in the store today and checked a couple of boxes and they had the wrong guns in em, like 3 out of the 4 boxes I checked.

You are correct Jim. If the gun has H827 or H827W on the handle it is not an HVLP gun. The proper purple HF gun will have "HVLP" embossed on the handle. A lot of people have purchased the H827 gun thinking they have an HVLP gun and are disappointed with it.

Are you using the white plastic filter/strainer?

I started having similar issues with mine after using it for awhile. When I tried the gun without it, it spayed fine again. About the same time, I downloaded the manual for a Sata 3000 which I had read was what the Chinese copied for this gun. The design was very similar to the 43430 except that the Sata maunal showed the filter being installed upside down to the 43430. I installed my filter in the way that the Sata manual showed and the gun worked perfectly again. Tried it again with the filter installed the Chinese way and it spit and sputtered. Back to the German way and all was good again.

You might want to give it a try...

No I was looking at the correct box, and the right number, but I opened the boxes just to check and they where the non HVLP guns in the HVLP boxes. Finally after looking though 4 boxes the 5th one had the correct gun with the gold colored knobs.

Sorry, I missed this comment. Yeah, it came out looking great. I'm sure it helped that it was 55-60º outside and I used a medium activator, 70-80º. I just had to wait a little long between coats.

Sometimes tough to get good melt in trunk, jams, etc. when everything is to spec.

I recall you over reduce at times to improve flow out.
I like to also cheat the temps and reduction a bit.
Not sure how much over reduction I can get away with.
