Motor

The Graco Magnum ProX7 is equipped with a ¾hp motor which can run off of a 15000-watt generator, or a 15-amp household current. The maximum operating pressure is 3000 PSI (pounds per square inch.) This is more than enough power to paint medium sized projects like fences, decks, walls and cabinets. It can be used indoors or out.

Airless

The Graco Magnum ProX7 paint sprayer uses airless technology, which gives you a smoother, more even finish on all of your projects. An airless sprayer gives you a thicker coating, so the total number of coats you’ll need are usually reduced. You won’t need to thin the paint down as much, which reduces the drying time.

It is also more environmentally friendly, because it doesn’t release a lot of solvents or other pollutants into the air. Airless sprayers use very high pressure, and caution should be taken when using one.

The paint that is emitted from the nozzle comes out at a very high speed and should never be pointed at anything other than your intended target.

Hose

The maximum hose length is 150 feet, giving you lots of room to reach hard to paint areas and large surfaces. High fences, cathedral ceilings and other high places are made much easier to reach.

If you want the full 150 foot length, you’ll have to purchase an add-on; the length that is included with this model is 50 feet, which is still plenty long enough to reach high surfaces.

What’s Included

The Graco Magnum ProxX7 comes with everything you need to start on your project right away: the SG20 spray gun with a built-in hose that swivels; in-handle filter (full trigger); hose that is 50 feet in length; airless spray tip (RAC IV 515); 8 oz. storage fluid; a built-in tool box; DVD and quick start guide; foldable cart. All you have to supply is the paint.

Uses

The Graco Magnum ProX7 airless paint sprayer is ideal for property managers, do-it-yourselfers, contractors, remodelers, or maintenance personnel who paint on a regular basis.

Painting large surfaces like decks, rental properties, fences, sheds, houses, and barns are easily completed with this model. It is strong and durable enough to be used on a continual basis, so even everyday use won’t wear it out.

Dimensions

The shipping weight of this unit is 55.4 pounds. The actual unit weighs approximately 50 pounds, but the foldable cart makes it easy to transport and store. It is not considered ‘portable’ so you don’t have to worry about carrying it around while you paint.

Accessories

Consumers who bought the Graco Magnum ProX7 also purchased accessories such as masks, painter’s tape, safety goggles, hoses and drop cloths. Paints and stains, of course, are also purchased and are available both online and offline at various retailers.

Pros

The Graco Magnum ProX7 is a powerful airless paint sprayer that can handle medium sized jobs with ease. You’ll get a professional quality finish with each project and cleanup is easy.

The pressure control feature allows for auto-prime, and the .017 spray tip means that serious do-it-yourselfers and professionals alike can use heavier materials such as latex and acrylics with ease.

The 50’ of hose means that you can reach almost anywhere, and have the option to extend the reach even further, up to 150’. There is a 3 year warranty on all workmanship and material defects.

Cons

This is only available in the 48 contiguous U.S. states, which excludes Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Alaska and APO/FPO addresses.

This model doesn’t seem to be ideal for small detail work, like wood trim, or small woodworking projects. For detail work that requires exact precision, a smaller, less powerful unit may have to be purchased.

Consumer Reviews for the Graco Magnum ProX7

The sprayer is getting rave reviews from consumers on sites like Amazon and other independent review sites. Some of the biggest advantages seem to be that you can easily attach it the paint can, and start your project.

Other big selling features are the clean-up and the fact that it takes much less time than using a brush or roller. Consumers are very satisfied with the end result, which gives a smooth, even look. They also like the fact that heavier paints and latexes can be used.

Price

At the time of the review, the Graco Magnum ProX7 could be purchased for around $$$, plus shipping. It is only available in the contiguous 48 states. Other retailers such as Home Depot and Wal-Mart sell this model, as do other online retailers. Prices will vary by store and location.

Conclusion

This airless paint sprayer is ideal for do-it-yourselfers and contractors who have frequent painting needs. It can handle medium sized jobs and the extended hose length means you can reach almost any height.

Overall, the Graco Magnum ProX7 provides good value for your money and is made to last. The company stands behind all of their products and offers a warranty for material defects and workmanship.
