General features of the Wagner Universal Sprayer W 950
The versatile Wagner Universal Sprayer W 950 paint sprayer is especially suitable for consumers working on smaller projects. Think of painting the walls of your home. With a little modification, the Universal Sprayer W 950 can be used to refurbish garage doors, or doors and cabinets. For this purpose, the built-in handle extension must be disconnected and the wood & metal attachment used in its place. Now you are ready to start applying lacquer or stain!
The main feature of this type of paint sprayer is that it draws the paint directly from the container. This allows faster working with lighter equipment, making the whole process more convenient, especially when it comes to painting above your head. The supplied attachment must be used for lacquers and stains. It has an 800 ml reservoir which is ideal for fast and easy completion of small items, such as furniture. Each fully-filled reservoir is good for approximately 5-6 m² of lacquer or stain.
This spray gun is designed specifically to reach ceilings and high walls. The long, lightweight spray extension to the Universal Sprayer W 950 is ideal for effortlessly coating your ceiling.
Cleaning is a simple operation because the attachment is the only component that needs to be cleaned and/or the machine needs to be flushed with warm water (emulsion paint). The extremely powerful turbine lets you spray most paints without needing thinners. Previously, spray paint always required thinning in order to be applied.
Paint spraying technique
There are two main paint spraying techniques: Airless and high volume low pressure. Without going into the technical details, the main relevant differences are as follows.
The Universal Sprayer W 950 is an HVLP sprayer suitable for larger emulsion paint jobs. It is the only one of its kind!
The advantages of HVLP compared to Airless:
- Less overspray
- Faster setup and cleaning
- Ideal for small lacquer/stain projects
The disadvantages of HVLP compared to Airless:
- Spray pattern is not as smooth as Airless but still significantly better than brush/roller.
- Full of paint, the attachment – used only for lacquer and stains – can weigh between 1-1.2 kg. The Universal Sprayer W 950 draws emulsion paint directly from the container.

Reviews of the Wagner Universal Sprayer W 950 HVLP Paint Sprayer
AwesomeCovering surfaces with adhesive tape costs a lot of time and has to be done well, because there is a lot of paint mist.
Making a dark-grey wall of 8 by 2.5 white is a 14-minute job.
worth the effortA good device in itself. Some thought went into it. I agree with the reviewers above; covering the surfaces with adhesive tape was time-consuming, but the painting was done in no time. Great coverage. At first, I was very pleased with the result. On the second day I worked on the ceiling in the living room, and the result showed many unwanted streaks. Irregular airflow, which sometimes faltered, and every now and then I got a very narrow strip of paint. Cleaning the device didn’t help. Conclusion: inconsistent result. At first it was really great, but the day after I was dissatisfied. If I knew the cause of the problem, I could solve it; I would like to use this painting technique again.
Response from paintsprayer.co.uk:
If you are seeing streaks in the paint, this is a matter of "tailing"; this means that the paint is too thick and should be diluted further. Feel free to call us, so we can help you find a solution to the problem.
Just what I neededLast week I sprayed over 10 litres of latex. It went perfectly. Covering surfaces with adhesive tape was time-consuming, but afterwards everything was good to go. Smooth walls only need one layer of paint. With very coarse stones I kept seeing little holes, even after a third layer. That was quite disappointing. We have sprayed thick latex, diluted and undiluted, after pre-treatment with primer.
All in all I’m happy with the result! Great device. If you use a paint roller on fibreglass wallpaper, it sometimes comes off, but now it stayed firmly in place.
Tip: Make sure the plastic cover is tight. In the first room I hadn’t pulled it tight enough, so the wind blew it in all directions and pulled the tape loose...

What types of paint can I spray with the Wagner Universal Sprayer W 950?
In principle, the Universal Sprayer W 950 is used for spraying emulsions, but the supplied attachments make it possible to use it to spray lacquer and stains as well. Please note, there is nothing wrong with the quality of Histor Monodek. However, in our experience this paint is unsuitable for use with a paint sprayer.
Can I use solvent based paint with a paint sprayer?
Yes, you can use both solvent based paints as well as water-based paints in a spray gun.
How should I dilute the paint, and what mix should I use?
Interior wall paint (dispersion and emulsion paint) may need to be diluted. Most paint can be sprayed without dilution.
Please note: if you are going to dilute the paint, we advise you to start with a ratio of 5% and if necessary increase in increments of 5%.
What is the difference between the high volume low pressure and airless technology?
Without going into the technical aspects, we have 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:
What is the difference between the Universal Sprayer W 890, Universal Sprayer W 950 and Airless Sprayer Plus?
- The Universal Sprayer W 890 has attachments [reservoirs], including a 1-1.5-litre reservoir, that you fill with paint and attach directly to the nozzle. The weight increases the difficulty of painting a ceiling and the reservoir has to be refilled when it runs out. However, the 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. Also, you get less overspray. The Universal Sprayer W 890 is Wagner's most suitable model for small projects.
- The Universal Sprayer W 950 draws paint directly from the paint container, which means you do not have to continually refill a reservoir. This makes it faster to work with the Universal Sprayer 950 than with the Universal Sprayer W 890. One advantage of the Universal Sprayer W 950 is that you do not have to put in much physical effort because the machine draws paint directly from the container and it has an integrated handle extension. Its flexibility 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, further facilitated by the 10 m long hose. Compared to other paint sprayers, the Wagner Airless Sprayer Plus delivers a more even and smoother finish. This means the machine is better suited for larger projects. The Airless Sprayer Plus is recommended for wood & metal and wall & ceiling paints.
I have read a lot about the cleaning of these machines; how long will I spend cleaning them, and what should I use?
Cleaning the Wagner Universal Sprayer W 950 takes about 10 minutes. Clean the machine with what the paint manufacturer suggests you use to dilute the paint. For water-based paints, simply flush the machine with warm water. Solvent based paints which are diluted with white spirit should be cleaned with white spirit.
Do I need to use a lot of masking tape?
Mask off the area you are spraying by about 15-20 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.
Does a paint sprayer deliver a better result?
Definitely! Paint coverage is better and smoother, which provides a very professional looking result. You also 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 on the surface that needs to be sprayed. The actual painting is much faster compared to using a roller, but preparation and cleaning take 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 Universal Sprayer W 950 ready for use?
Yes, the Universal Sprayer W 950 is delivered completely ready for wood & metal and wall & ceiling paint including emulsion paint.
