Tested with the A7500 QT non-bleeder-style gun that’s comfortable to hold,
and easy to use and adjust.

Excellent

Non-bleeder-style gun is comfortable to use and simple to adjust.
System produces a nice spray pattern.

Campbell Hausfeld
HV2002

$250

Poor

Poor

Gun has an uncomfortable handle, and the top-mount hose interfered with
spray adjustments. This bleeder-style gun requires the user to adjust three
controls to change the spray pattern.

Campbell Hausfeld
HV2500

$400

Poor

Fair

Gun has the same setup as the HV2002. Produced an asymmetrical spray
pattern, and could not produce a fine spray.

Poor

Same gun setup as other Campbell Hausfeld systems.
Did not produce a symmetrical spray pattern.

Excellent

Air and fluid knobs located on the back of a non-bleeder-style gun, making it
easy to dial in a nice spray pattern. The system had plenty of power, but the
gun was not as comfortable as several others.

$900

Good

Good

This gun worked well, but sprays fast and heavy, making it better
suited to professionals covering large areas. The non-bleeder-style gun
has a comfortable handle and the system packs nicely into the
carrying-case-style turbine.

Lex-Aire
LX-60C

$995

Fair

Very good

Air volume and spray pattern on this bleeder-style gun are both controlled by
adjusting the air cap, which was stiff and difficult to turn.

Rockler HVLP
Spray System

$147

Poor

Poor

Cup mounts to gun with threads, making it difficult to clean. The gun handle is
uncomfortable, and the bleeder-style gun could not be adjusted to spray a fine
mist. Hose attaches to top of the gun, and often got in the way.

$850

Very good

Very good

This non-bleeder-style gun worked well and was comfortable to hold.
But it uses a cup system with disposable liners that added inconvenient
steps to the process.

Titan
Capspray 75

$900

Poor

Good

This non-bleeder-style gun produced a nice spray pattern but sprays fast and
heavy, making it better suited to professionals covering large areas. Gun was
not very comfortable, with overly complicated adjustments.

Wagner
Flexio 890

$190

Poor

Poor

Convenient on/off switch on the body. Produced a nice spray pattern, but not
a very fine spray. There is no hook to hang the spray gun from, and the hose
is permanently connected to the gun, so it tips over easily.
