Review Summary

If you are looking for an affordable paint sprayer that will be good for do-it-yourself home projects, the Wagner Flexio 570 should be a strong contender for you.

While it’s by no means perfect, the Flexio 570 does manage to succeed in the departments that count for a do-it-yourself job.

This affordable tool also manages to be quick, powerful, and designed for a long lifespan by featuring non-wear parts.

Unfortunately, there are also some issues that may give the discerning buyer pause. This is fairly common to tools of this price range, but of course it also is not what most people are hoping to see.

One thing that we noticed is that it is a little overly prone to clogging. This actually seems to be an issue common to the Flexio line in general.

It is also prone to overspray, which isn’t something you want when you are painting, say, your dining room.

Is the Flexio 570 worth your time? Read on as we explore that question with a more in-depth review.

Outdoor usage of the spraygun

Important Features:

XBoost Turbine:

The XBoost turbine component of this tool is optimized for buyers that want to paint a room as quickly as they can.

Of course, there are pros and cons to this feature. The Flexio really is fast, but with speed comes the overspraying that we mentioned earlier.

If you are painting a “blank canvas” of a room, overspraying isn’t really a big deal. However, if you are painting your living room, and trying to keep the paint contained, it becomes a bigger problem.

Still, this feature will be great for painting an unfinished basement, or any other area that can withstand a little bit of overspray.

Non-Wearable Parts:

The adjustable iSpray nozzle has been constructed with non-wearable parts to increase the tool’s life expectancy.

The benefit of this feature is self-explanatory. By eliminating parts of the tool design that are vulnerable to unnecessary damage, Flexio manages to reduce the potential for unexpected repairs.

Easy to Clean:

While clogging is going to be an issue with this tool, and, in fact, with most Flexio tools, the easy-to-clean spray gun does make things a little simpler.

The “Lock N Go” design of the spray gun makes changing accessories a cinch, and it gives you a lot of room for easy cleaning.

The best way to avoid clogging is, of course, through proper maintenance, so this is always good to see.

FAQ

How durable is this tool?

Good question! While spray guns don’t usually bump into too much wear and tear, durability is an issue with any tool. The Flexio line has had some problems with durability in the past, but this model seems to hold up to the strains of conventional use well.

How is the warranty?

The warranty for this product is pretty standard. The product comes with a one-year limited warranty that takes effect upon the date of purchase.

Can you use this spray gun for detail-oriented jobs?

A. The 570 is definitely more designed for larger-scale, high-volume jobs. For furniture painting, you will want a spray system that is meant for detailed jobs.
