Why get a fence paint sprayer anyway?

It's a fair question. Paint sprayers are relatively expensive, and a lot more complicated to use than a brush. So why go to all the trouble?

Well, the main benefit of using a sprayer is that you will save time. A lot of time.

Sprayers are able to output a lot of stain in a short time. When compared to dipping a brush in a can and getting a couple of strokes with each application, there's just no contest.

If you have a significant area of fencing in need of painting, or you plan on doing this type of job regularly then a sprayer is probably a wise investment. What was once a day-long job is now achievable in a couple of hours.

The other big benefit of using a sprayer instead of a brush or roller is the ease with which the paint or stain can be applied. Hold the gun, squeeze the trigger and there you are. By spraying the paint it is also able to penetrate deep into the small cracks in the wood and provide the highest level of protection possible.

In conclusion, if you're not planning on spraying large surfaces then just stick to a brush. However, if you plan on staining extensive sections of fencing then give yourself a break!

HomeRight Super Finish Max Extra  OUR TOP PICK

This isn't the first time we've talked up the HomeRight range of sprayers and there are good reasons for this. They offer an excellent blend of performance, features, and value for money.

The Super Finish Max Extra is the perfect stain sprayer because it is easy to set up and clean, but straightforward to use too.

But let's get into some of the details.

It's an HVLP sprayer (high volume, low pressure) with 450 watts of power. While it's motor doesn't compare with the high power exterior wall sprayers, it's more than adequate to ensure a smooth delivery of stain and paint for fences. Furthermore, it's powerful enough to handle thicker varnishes and paints without thinning.

It's not just suited to spraying fences but can also deal with spraying jobs on cabinets, furniture, walls, and decks too. There are six changeable tips available which give it the flexibility needed to have such a wide range of skills. The tip sizes range from 1 mm right up to 4 mm The tips and nozzles are made of brass and are built to last.

It comes with a 39-ounce container which when full could be considered heavy. The container attaches to the front of the gun so you'll need to support the weight of this when spraying. The balance of weight can take a bit of getting used to when the container is full. Thankfully, the level of paint being used is up to you. The entire unit (minus paint) weighs 2.76 pounds.

This is a complete spray kit and comes with a built-in compressor. It takes power from a standard power outlet. You adjust the power delivery using a knob located next to the trigger. This gives you complete control over the spray pattern. It gives the option of spray widths from 1 inch to 12 inches.

What kind of paints does it use?

It'll handle pretty much anything as long as it's thinned properly. Oils, enamels, primers, latexes, polyurethanes, sealers, varnishes, and stains are all fair game with the HomeRight Super Finish.

What's in the box?

Aside from the spray gun, wrench, container, and 3 nozzles (3 additional nozzles are available), there's also a cleaning brush and viscosity cup.

Any big drawbacks?

Well, yes it's not perfect. HomeRight state that is not recommended for painting ceilings. This is due to the angle you have to hold the gun at and the positioning of the motor in relation to the paint container. There's a chance that the paint will get into the motor and break the device.
