The Wagner HEA Control PRO 250R (plastic model mounted on stand) belongs to the High Efficiency Airless Control Series, HEA for short. It is the successor to the Project Pro 117, the PowerPainter 60 and to a lesser extent the Airless Sprayer Plus.
The Wagner HEA Control PRO 250R paint sprayer is one of the three compact HEA variants mounted on a stand. This plastic model is easy to move around and lighter than its metal brother, the 250M. It is an ideal machine for consumers and DIY projects using standard paint stains and lacquers.

HEA (High Efficiency Airless) is Wagner's new Airless technology. The completely new HEA series is designed to replace Wagner's successful Project Pro and PowerPainter series.
This new technology gives even better and fuller spray than Airless technology, currently the highest standard in the market. Thanks partly to the new technology, the machine can spray all the usual materials using less power, which makes it far more efficient than its predecessors.

HEA integrates the advantages of various existing paint spraying technology. Due to the low pressure, it can reduce overspray by some 50% and the paint gun is easier to handle than the old standard Airless paint sprayer. Also, the HEA is a more forgiving or accommodating paint sprayer, meaning that you will get fewer runs and less uneven coverage than you would with current Airless and HVLP technology.

Airless - HEA

All the plus points of the HEA paint sprayer in a row

  1. Better spray fan than current Airless sprayers (the latest industry standard)
  2. +/- 50% less overspray
  3. Easier to use
  4. Better control over strokes (less “tailing” and overlap)
  5. Specially developed tips for better coverage

WHO AND WHAT FOR
The Wagner HEA PRO 250R is the ideal partner for medium-sized projects, such as new builds or home renovations. It is perfectly capable of spraying all current water- and solvent-based fluids and is specially developed for DIY, building managers and service providers who use spray painters on a regular basis. The model is handy to use, compact and easy to store. This paint sprayer has a plastic housing and is therefore lighter than the M variants.

Applications & projects
The flexible Wagner HEA PRO 250R is the ideal tool for paintwork in new builds, for maintenance and renovation of both interiors and exteriors. It can spray the full range of water- or solvent-based fluids: from wall and latex paint for interior walls, ceilings, basements and garages, to lacquering, woodworking and preservatives for wooden houses, doors, furniture, shutters, fences or carports to even corrosion protection for railings, banisters and steel supports.

Great little sprayer, i've done 2 houses so far with it, 1 day to sand and prep the house, 2nd day to undercoat doors, skirting and mist coat the walls, 3 day to emulsion walls. Saves alot of time and hassle. Better once you get used to the cleaning out with 2 buckets etc. Lovely finish on it shows up the plasterers bad work nicely, we just white emulsion walls and ceiling, no cutting in nice and easy. only been using water based undercoat and emulsion, don't know how I feels about putting solvent through it maybe I'll get a hand held one for that there cheap enough.

Wish I’d bought one of these years ago, I used it to mist coat then two coats of emulsion on every wall and ceiling of a house I’ve built. The machine is surprisingly powerful for its size, super long hose is the perfect length to get all parts of a large room without having to drag the pump around, I even had the pump outside the rooms I’ve been doing so it didn’t get covered in paint dust, cleaning is easy once you’re comfortable with simple process, an all round good but that has saved me loads of time, effort and money plus the bonus of having that professional finished look. Really happy with the whole system. The only thing I would do to the system if I was designing an update would be to make some sort of simple bracket that keeps the pick up pipe upright in the paint container. I made one myself by cutting a hole in the top of a 10lt paint tub and passing the pick up hose through it.

We bought this unit to paint some Suffolk barns with Bedec Barn Paint (which is pretty viscous, when compared to the mainstream shed and fence paints you'll find in B&Q). Masking up took a long time, as it needed to be better than when painting with brushes and rollers alone. However, this was more than compensated for by the speed with which we were able to spray everything. Areas that had previously taken a week with brushes were finished in less than a day - allowing us to go around the entire property twice in a working week (once with 30% dilution and once with 15%). Conditions were warm and dry, and not too windy, which seemed ideal to us. Whilst overspray was limited, you still have to be careful when spraying past the edge of the building if the wind is coming towards you! Face mask and glasses / goggles are essential. It's a nice touch that there's a face mask in the box.

Clean up of the unit was pretty tedious, but we're not certain what Wagner could do to improve that. They could however at least use materials that didn't show signs of surface rust on the FIRST DAY after cleaning - which affected screws on the spray gun and some of the hose clamps.

The hose length - at 9m - worked well for us and enabled the unit and paint tin to remain on the ground, even when we were working on eaves and gable ends. The main unit has a handy storage area on the top, which was handy for spare nozzles, dust caps and spanners. However, there's nowhere on the unit to hang the spray gun when not actively in use, to keep it out of the dust and dirt. You may also need to be creative to keep the intake and return hoses vertical in smaller paint tins, as they tend to flop over and start sucking in air as the paint gets low. That was less of an issue when using 20 litre tins, which the hoses accommodated just fine.

We're more than happy to confirm that our choice of paint worked brilliantly with this sprayer, and that spraying saved us an enormous amount of time and produced excellent results; so on those grounds we're happy to recommend the Wagner 250R. Just watch out for those rusty screws and clamps!

West European countries mostly have quality paints that contain relatively few solids (chalk, lime). In East European countries paints contain more chalk, lime, etc. These solids cause clogging and so a filter is essential for this type of paint.

It sounds somewhat contradictory, but the newly designed tip, combined with reduced pressure means that the spray pattern is usually more attractive and gives better coverage than you can get with an airless sprayer. Please note that the quality of paint and spray technology will affect the spray pattern.

For a detailed explanation of the differences in technology, please see Airless vs HEA Here are the advantages and disadvantages of each technique: Airless versus other techniques: Suitable for larger projects Intensive use Less overspray Attractive spray pattern Needs more preparation and cleaning time Less forgiving (harder to use) Sustainable technology Is quite noisy HEA versus other techniques: Suitable for larger projects Moderately intensive use Less overspray Most attractive spray pattern Needs less preparation and cleaning time Forgiving (easier to use) Makes less noise HVLP versus other techniques: Suitable for smaller projects (except Wagner W950 for wall paint) Moderately intensive use Less overspray Least attractive spray pattern compared to HEA and Airless Needs less preparation and cleaning time Accommodating (easier to use) Less noisy

Wagner HEA Control Pro 250 M and R are both suitable for all types of lacquer, stain and latex (solvent or water-based) paints. Experience teaches us that Histor Monodek gives a less satisfactory result with HEA devices. In saying this we do not mean to disparage the quality of this type of latex, simply that using it in combination with HEA sprayers has proven not to be ideal. On the other hand, these sprayers cannot process textured paint, only smooth masonry.

These paint sprayers are suitable for the following types of paint:

  • Varnishes and lacquers containing water and solvent.
  • Lacquers, emulsions, solvents, resins, PVC lacquers (vinyl paints), primers, fillers and corrosion-resistant paints
  • Dispersion and latex paints for indoors.

Yes, you can use a paint sprayer for both solvent and water-based paints.

In principle, lacquers, stains and latex/wall paint do not need thinning or only very light dilution. It's more important to use the correct tip for the paint you want to use. The right tip size can be found in the job description or technical worksheet issued by your paint manufacturer.

This paint spray is suitable for both the consumer and professional user. The machine lends itself well to painters working on small projects, such as boat and apartment owners, as well as for all other light professional uses.

NB: The guarantee only covers private use, not commercial use, because it is a do-it-yourself product based on our standards. One feature indicating this is the purchase by a private individual. Accordingly, when a business customer makes a purchase, we assume that a product will be used on a professional basis. The intended purpose is stated in the operating instructions. Our do-it-yourself devices are not suitable for professional use. If you use your device on a professional basis, you will no longer be entitled to the guarantee.

Spray pattern quality is the same for both the HEA Control Pro 250R and 350R. The hose of the HEA Control Pro 350 R is 15 meters long, compared to 9 meters for the HEA Control Pro 250 R. Spray output for the HEA Control Pro 350 R is 1.5 liters per minute and 1.25 liters per minute for the HEA Control Pro 250 R. Due to its greater capacity, the HEA Control Pro 350 R can handle fluids with more viscosity than the HEA Control Pro 250 R.

Cleaning any HEA device takes about 10-15 minutes. Use the primary reducer also for cleaning up (water, white spirits, lacquer thinner, xylene and denatured alcohol). Clean water-based paints with warm water. For solvent paints diluted with white spirits use the same product to clean up.

Although HEA paint sprayers produce relatively little overspray, you should always mask off anyway. Mask off the area you are spraying by 10-15 cm, and cover the floor and any furniture.

Paint sprayers always produce overspray! Even HEA devices that produce the least overspray. Wagner's videos do not exactly correspond to reality. As with conventional paints (applied with roller and brush), it is recommended to mask off past the area to be painted and cover the floor and furniture. It is also important to point the nozzle perpendicular to the wall at a distance of 20 cm for an even coverage. Keep this in mind and overspray won’t be a problem.

No, this package allows you to paint most types of wood, metal, wall and ceiling paints. It’s best to just get started and if it turns out that you need a different tip size, you can better estimate what size it should be.

This depends on the tip you choose. To calculate the width, multiply the first number of the tip size by 5. For example, a 519 tip covers a width of 25 cm (5x5 cm), while a 409 tip will cover 20 cm (5x4 cm). Note: This only applies if you hold the nozzle 15 cm from the wall.

Here we can answer with a positive yes! It produces better, more even coverage, giving a very professional finish. In addition, you need less paint. Wagner indicates that paint consumption can be reduced up to 30%.

That depends on the area you want to spray. Spray painting is much faster than roller painting, but preparation and cleaning take a bit longer. As a rule of thumb, we stick to a threshold of 60m2. If your project is bigger than that you will gain time. If certain areas are hard to paint, such as beams, corners, etc., you will also gain time.

Paint sprayers are easy to master. It is a fairly simple and handy way to apply paints, stains and lacquers provided you follow the instructions. Always read the manual and when in doubt call us before you get started.

Yes, the HEA Control Pro 250 R is delivered fully ready for painting lacquers, latex, stains, etc.
