Need to stain a fence or deck? (short video)
Get an airless sprayer!!! I used a Wagner Paint Crew sprayer. It got mixed reviews, but it was pretty cheap, and it worked for the entire job (12 gallons of paint and stain). With 320+ pickets to stain, I'd be staining pickets for the rest of my natural life if I had to use a brush. The stain is Behr Waterproofing Wood Finish, Redwood #402. The label on the bucket said that airless application was only recommended for professionals. Bah! I found that a steady hand and a few trial pieces are all it takes to get a very even and adequate coat with a single pass.

More fence pics and progress can be found in this thread.

The video was "processing" for a REALLY long time on YouTube. It works now.

Yuri what size compressor you have?

airless sprayers don't need a compressor as they have an onboard pump (typically diaphram) They are great for spraying viscous paints and stains. HVLP sprayers are even more impressive. Earlex makes an inexpensive one that really delivers a nice finish.

I have a 5HP 60 gallon compressor, but pickles is right. This sprayer doesn't use a compressor. It uses a pump to achieve very high (2700 psi) fluid pressure to create the spray pattern.

dude, I love videos of stuff like that...you could probably have paid some day laborers to do it pronto...but having a new tool is way better IMHO

Cool! When are you going to finish up the rest of the lawn?;)

I was thinking of spraying the lawn John Deere green with yellow stripes. Brown is too "Autumn/Fall" for this time of year.
