16 May A Mobile High-performance Air Powered Sprayer
Last week Minneapolis based Graco Inc. introduced the new the Contractor King™, which is an air-powered protective coatings sprayer. This latest member of the King® family of sprayers has a more compact footprint, making it ideal for contractors who are looking to maximize both productivity and portability. Another new product, the Silver Plus HP gun, complements the sprayer and is pressure rated up to 7,250 psi (500 bar), so it’s designed to handle high solid coatings. Mounted on a professional grade compact frame, the sprayer is up to 85 pounds lighter and 48% smaller than traditional air-powered units, so it can be easily moved around the jobsite without any sacrifice in spraying capability. The Contractor King family includes models with 45:1, 60:1 and 70:1 pressure ratios, and they are available in a variety of packages. One option is the new Big 150 ready-to-spray package, which is configured with pressure-rated accessories such as 150 feet of Xtreme Duty™ high-pressure fluid hose, a Silver Plus spray gun, fittings and XHD spray tips. These lightweight and rugged sprayers are engineered for maximum performance and long life. And they have a QuickChange™ Endurance™ pump, allowing for easy on-the-job pump removal and maintenance.
