Hence you can accomplish more areas in less measure of time. Besides, the oval-shape opening of the nozzle covers 30% more surface than any traditional sprayers and it does it without any drips.

  • Easy and fast clean up with less mess

Like most Flexio paint sprayers, clogging is a common issue with this model. But don’t worry about Wagner Flexio 570 cleaning process. This easy-to-clean spray gun makes things simpler with a few removable Flexio 570 parts. Cleaning this unit is faster than a roller and brush and even any airless sprayer. Thanks to the Lock-n-Go system that lets you clean the sprayer with less mess.

  • Material Flow Control

The sprayer lets you control the amount and flow of materials.  The knob on the trigger helps to adjust the flow rate for spraying speed. Indeed, it’s an excellent feature for painting small, intricate areas like corners, edges and figures. Likewise, you’ll be able to minimize the overspray with this feature.

  • 20% Lightweight

Lightweight design of a sprayer is essential when you’re doing a big job to prevent fatigue. Fortunately, when it comes to user-comfort, you should appreciate the light weight of this model. In fact, you can use this sprayer for an extended period and certainly you won’t feel it too heavy even when it’s about full of paint.

  • Ergonomic handle grip

Users experience less fatigue while using it for a long time. The ergonomic design long handle offers a sure grip, making it easy and comfortable to complete projects like a pro.

  • 50% quieter

It’s not always easy to find a quieter paint sprayer. But the Flexio HVLP 570 paint sprayer manages to accomplish your painting task without much noise. In fact, it’s 50% quieter which is always an issue with paint spray system. Note that the sprayer is no louder than a hairdryer.

  • Built to last

Built-quality and durability is an issue with any paint gun. But this sprayer seems to last for a long time and give you great value for money overall. The nozzle has especially been constructed with no-wearable parts. That means it’ll increase the tool’s lifespan.

  • Affordable Price

This paint gun is going to be more affordable than any other Wagner Flexio paint sprayers making it a good option for budget-conscious buyers.

Pro tip

If you remove the paint container before it’s empty, the paint may spill down inside the sprayer. So, relieve the pressure before removing the container as it’s under pressure and may spew paint out.

What We Didn’t Like

Unfortunately, this sprayer has some downsides that you may not like. However, these are relatively common for a sprayer at this price range.

  • Not perfect for bigger projects

This sprayer is certainly an excellent product for finishing and minor touchups. But for bigger projects like painting the exterior of a house, it’s not the right one at all. Also, you can’t work on the project that requires a fine finish as this model doesn’t come with fine finish nozzle.

  • Smaller cup

Refilling the cup during your painting project is a big hassle and it interrupts paintings. This model could be better if it comes with a bigger paint reservoir.

  • Prone to clogging

Although Wagner claims that it won’t clog, frequent clogging seems to be an issue with this model. We’ve noticed that this unit is prone to clogging. However, if you assemble it correctly and be careful while painting, you may reduce this problem.

  • Prone to overspray

Wagner Spraytech Flexio 570 paint sprayer is really faster but this feature makes it prone to overspray. If you’re painting a living-or dining room where you want to keep the paint contained, it’ll be a big issue. But for spraying any unfinished basement or other surfaces where a little overspray is acceptable, this occurrence isn’t a problem.

Pro tip

For doing some woodwork, you’ll require finer atomization. We recommend using detail finish nozzle that comes with the Wagner Flexio 590 for that purpose.

General User Experience

Let’s have a look at what customers have to say about this sprayer.

When it comes to user reviews, this sprayer gains mixed feedback.

On the positive side, users firstly appreciate its spray-rate. They mentioned that they have completed their home DIY painting projects in less time they’d have required to do with rollers and brushes.

However, in spite of these downsides, the majority of the users were satisfied with its quick and consistent performance, functionality, adjustability of the spraying patterns and quality of Flexio Wagner 570 that they expect from a sprayer at this price.

So, we can say the overall user experience is satisfactory.
