Review Summary

If you’re looking for an industrial grade finisher at a price that won’t bankrupt you, the Fuji Mini-Mite 3 Platinum is going to be something to think about.

Though very expensive, this unit is still more affordable than many professional quality spray systems. And it delivers results that users at every level will love.

Fuji has a reputation for making high-quality finishers, and the Fuji Mini Mite 3 will certainly serve well to maintain that reputation.

The unit comes with a powerful, three-stage turbine motor, it can work with all known coatings (assuming they’ve been thinned as recommended), and it’s optimized to run quietly, which is a big plus since finishers are known for getting loud.

Another nice thing is the fact that there aren’t many cons to speak of. We did notice that the tool can get very hot around the host coupling, and we also found that the valve near the hose is a little bit flimsier than one would expect from a tool in this price range.

Of course, we don’t expect you to make a buying decision based on this information alone.

That in mind, let us now dive into our Fuji Mini-Mite 3 PLATINUM review:

Easy to Transport: For Professionals on the Go

If you’re a pro who needs to travel with their equipment a lot, or if you’re just an average do-it-yourselfer who appreciates a tool that’s easy to move around the house, you’re going to appreciate the Fuji1 Mini Mite 3’s transportability.

The tool itself is relatively lightweight (weighing approximately 28 pounds), it’s compact, and it even features a handle that will make transporting it easy as pie.

Optimized for Noise Reduction: Good for… Everyone

No one likes noise pollution, right? Finishers are notorious for being noisy, but this doesn’t have to be the case. Fuji actually has a reputation for making remarkably quiet sprayers, and this unit is no exception.

The tool features noise reduction covers that will ensure a relatively peaceful work environment.

Can Work With Any Known Material: Good for Users Who Demand Versatility

Last but not least, the high-quality turbine motor, coupled with the highly proficient spray tips, ensure that you’ll be able to use any finishing material that you can think of—assuming of course that they have been properly thinned.

The benefit of this is, of course, obvious. This versatility ensures that you will find lots of work for the Mini Mite 3 to do.
