I own a Wagner airless and I do not regret buying one. I purchased it about 7 years ago. I was doing apart. maintenance then ,but now I'm a painting contractor. I'm a one man operation so I don't do large jobs ,so this sprayer is just right for me. As DH said," rent ". If you buy ,it will just sit and collect dust. You can rent about anywhere in town. Chances are your paint dealer will have one. Keep in mind they will be much bigger than a wagner but they all basicly work the same. Just for information, do you know some are equipped with gas motors. Two reasons for this, (1) Places with no electricity, (2) just power to spare. OK I'm done , have fun. Ron J.
