Graco GX19 Balances Quality and Production
Prep to Finish is adding the Graco GX19 to its traveling lineup for 2016. This new hopper style unit is Graco’s latest addition to it’s legendary Finish Pro line.
For years, P2F has travelled and trained with the Finish Pro 395 air assisted and the HVLP 9.5 Turboforce for all hands-on workshops.
Because of its size and versatility, the GX19 will be filling in some of the situations where the 395 is overkill production needs exceed HVLP.
Trainer Todd Pudvar describes the Graco GX19 as a sprayer option that had been missing until now:
“The GX19 definitely fills a gap that is in the spray technology world right now – between the bigger production rigs we use, and the smaller HVLP style systems. Getting a fine finish into more of a skid style platform is a great option.
Graco has set up the GX with the Pro Connect System in a value driven package. Having the ability to swap the pumps out on site with no tools can make the difference between staying profitable on the job or painting for free, which no one likes to do.
The unit makes a nice finish at a low price, with the ability to spray up to a gallon and a half at a time, with a hopper. The GX is compact, portable, easy to use and clean. That’s what we look for on our jobs and when we go on the road to do Prep to Finish clinics and workshops. Customers like to see tight efficiency, and this unit definitely represents that…“
Prep to Finish has been running the Graco GX19 on projects since mid-2015, in advance of its launch in America. Look for more detailed information about the sprayer and how it works, as well as more in depth action footage and commentary from us in the near future.
And if you are planning to attend one of our hands on workshops in 2016, there is a very good chance you will get to run the Graco GX19 and gain some knowledge about how it works and where it fits into the grand scheme of spraying.
