Main features of the Wagner Airless Sprayer Plus
For consumers, the versatile Wagner Airless Sprayer Plus is ideal for paint and lacquer projects in and around the house, or even for house renovation.
The Airless Sprayer Plus contains an integrated reservoir of 7.5 litres, enough to let you apply about 50-60 m² of paint. The airless technology ensures the best possible results for your walls. The 10 m long hose on the device gives you great flexibility and another advantage is that it makes the work light because you do not have to carry the paint about. The ergonomic spray gun and extension piece are made of lightweight, durable materials.
It is delivered as a ready-to-spray system for most types of wall paint and lacquer/stains.
Note: This spray gun is known for its good quality/price ratio and excellent spray pattern.
Two distinct techniques used in spray painting: high volume low pressure (HVLP) and airless. Sprayer Plus applies to the airless technique. We highlight the advantages and disadvantages of the two techniques below.
The advantages of HVLP compared to Airless
- Less overspray
- Faster setup and cleaning
- Ideal for small projects
The disadvantages of HVLP compared to Airless
- Spray pattern is not as smooth as Airless but still significantly better than brush/roller
- Filled with paint, the attachment [reservoir] can weigh 1-2 kg
- Not suitable for large wall paint projects (greater than 80 m²)

Reviews of the Wagner Airless Sprayer Plus Paint Sprayer
Excellent deviceExcellent device, it yields beautiful results, and is also perfect for painting ceilings. It’s really worth every penny!
115A good machine that’s easy to clean, and feels more reliable than the 115. I think the gun is another improvement, it seems to give more control, or I’m imagining things. But I don’t understand that the reservoir is smaller. If you’re developing a new machine, why not make everything about it better?
AMAZING!!It’s clear that a lot of plastic went into the production of this Wagner Airless Sprayer Plus. Plastic container, plastic parts etc. The machine feels very vulnerable. But the result of this device is truly AMAZING!! I had also just purchased the paint from verfspuit.net, and this combination is just magnificent. The walls had already been plastered very well, and this makes the delicate spray work out beautifully, Even if you keep your face very close to the wall. This is definitely enough reason for me to recommend this paint spray gun. The work itself is manageable. Though it’s tricky to find the right dilution of the paint supplied by verfspuit.net. In the end I worked with 20%, which is more than was recommended by verfspuit.net. Once you’ve covered all the necessary surfaces in adhesive tape, you will be able to work very quickly, and it’s fun to do. Especially if you have a whole house to paint.
Cleaning the Airless Sprayer Plus is a hassle. Especially the vulnerable parts in the container (hopper) have to be handled with care. I read somewhere that 10 minutes of cleaning time is needed, but that’s not enough. If you want to do it right, it easily takes you half an hour!! So a paint spray gun has both advantages and disadvantages, but I am never going back to the paint roller.

What types of paint can I spray using the Wagner Project 115 or Airless Sprayer Plus?
The Wagner Project 115 is suitable for all types of lacquer, stain and emulsion paint (solvent or resin-based and water-based). Histor Monodek and Wagner Sprayable Emulsion paint provide a less satisfactory result with the Wagner Project 115. It is not our intention to question the quality of these two kinds of emulsion paint. It is simply that they do not work so well with this paint sprayer. It cannot be used with textured paint or exterior emulsion paint either.
- Water and solvent-based lacquers and glazes
- Lacquers, oils, solvents, synthetic resins, PVC lacquers, pre-lacquers, primers, fillers and anti-corrosion paints
- Interior dispersion paints and emulsion paints
Can I use solvent based paint with a paint sprayer?
Yes, you can use a paint sprayer for solvent based paints, as well as water-based paints.
What dilution levels should I use?
In principle, lacquers and stains do not need to be diluted (or very little) with a dilution agent. Emulsion paint should always be diluted, but the amount varies by brand and the type of emulsion paint. As a rule of thumb, we use at least 5% dilution liquid and increase until the right spray pattern has been achieved. NOTE: the paint manufacturer often provides a processing procedure. This will give you the exact dilution ratios.
Are the Wagner Project 115 and Airless Sprayer Plus suitable for professional use?
This is not recommended. Although the Wagner Project 115 and Airless Sprayer Plus deliver a very professional finish, the machines are designed for consumer use. Their durability is not as good as that of the Wagner Project 117 and 119.
What is the difference between the high volume low pressure (HVLP) and airless technology?
Without going into the technical aspects, here we listed a number of things:
HVLP is characterised by:
- less overspray
- easier cleaning
- easier to work with
- small to medium-sized projects
Airless is characterised by:
- smoother spray pattern
- large projects
- more robust
- widespread application
- harder to clean
What are the differences between the Universal Sprayer W 890, Universal Sprayer W 950 and Airless Sprayer Plus?
- The Universal Sprayer W 890 has attachments and a 1-1.5-litre reservoir that you fill with paint and attach directly to the nozzle. This increases the difficulty of painting a ceiling due to its weight, and the reservoir has to be refilled when it runs out. One advantage is that you can easily change colours, and the machine has a much wider range of potential applications as it is easier to use for all kinds of objects and paints. You also get less overspray. The Universal Sprayer W 890 is Wagner's most suitable model for small projects.
- The Universal Sprayer 950 draws paint directly from the paint container, which means you do not have to continually refill a reservoir. You can work faster with the Universal Sprayer W 950 than with the W 867 E but you will get more overspray. One advantage of the Universal Sprayer W 950 is that you do not have to put in so much physical effort because the machine draws the paint directly from the paint can and has an integrated handle extension. The flexibility of the Universal Sprayer W 950 is also increased with the optional wood & metal attachment.
- The Airless Sprayer Plus has an integrated 7.5-litre paint reservoir. Just like the Universal Sprayer W 950, it is easy to paint objects above head height with this machine. This is further facilitated by its 10 m hose. Compared to other paint sprayers, the Wagner Airless Sprayer Plus delivers a more even and smoother result, which means the machine is better suited for larger projects. The Airless Sprayer Plus is recommended for emulsion paint, lacquer and stain.
What are the differences between the Project 117, Project 119 and Project 115/Airless Sprayer Plus?
If we look at the paint results, all three models are the same. The three paint sprayers provide the same quality spray pattern. The greatest difference in design is that the Airless Sprayer Plus does not draw paint directly from a container, in contrast to the Project 117 and Project 119. The Project 115 has an integrated reservoir.
The Airless Sprayer Plus compared to Project 117 and 119:
- Best for consumer use only
- The Airless Sprayer Plus is not as robust as the Project 117 and Project 119
- It is relatively hard to clean due to its integrated reservoir
- The Airless Sprayer Plus has a 10 m hose, the Project 117’s is 7.5 m long and Project 119’s is 15 m long.
- The Airless Sprayer Plus works slower than the Project 117 and Project 119 (0.9 litres per minute versus 0.95 l and 1.25 litres per minute, respectively)
I have read a lot about the cleaning of these machines. how long does it take to clean them, and what should I use?
Cleaning the Wagner Project 115 and the Airless Sprayer Plus takes about 15 minutes. Clean the machine with the dilution solution. For water-based paints, simply flush the machine with warm water; solvent paints diluted with white spirit should be cleaned with white spirit.
Do I need to use a lot of masking tape?
Although the overspray of the Airless Sprayer Plus is relatively negligible, it is always a good idea to mask off. Mask off the area you are spraying by about 10-15 cm, and cover the floor and furniture.
Will everything get covered in paint due to overspray?
There will always be a little overspray with spraying. You should mask off and cover up in much the same way as you would when painting with conventional rollers. It is also important to keep the spray nozzle at a distance of 20 cm perpendicular to the wall for an even coverage. If you follow this advice, you should not have too many problems with overspray.
Should I order extra tips?
No, you can paint most types of lacquer, emulsion and stain with this set. It is best to just get started so that you can decide whether you need another tip size and assess the right size to use.
How wide is the spray jet?
This depends on the tip you choose: you must multiply the first number of the tip size by five. Therefore, a 519 tip delivers a 25-cm wide spray jet and a 409 tip delivers a 20-cm wide spray jet. Note: this size is calculated for a spray nozzle held 15 cm from the wall.
Does a paint sprayer deliver a better result?
Definitely! Paint coverage is better and smoother and provides a very professional looking result. Furthermore, you need less paint. Wagner states that paint consumption can be reduced by up to 30%.
Can I work faster with a paint sprayer?
This depends upon the surface that needs to be sprayed. The actual painting is much faster compared to using a roller, but preparation and cleaning takes more time. As a rule of thumb, the tipping point is usually when the object to be painted has a surface area greater than 50 m2. If your project is larger than this, you will save time. For complex surfaces, such as beams and corners, you will gain immediate time savings.
Is spray painting difficult?
Paint sprayers are easy to master. It is a fairly simple and convenient way to apply paints, stains and lacquers, especially if you follow the guidelines correctly. That is why it is important to read the instructions for use carefully, and call us if you have any doubts.
Do you deliver the Wagner Airless Sprayer Plus ready for use?
Yes, the Wagner Airless Sprayer Plus is delivered completely ready for lacquers and emulsion paint.
