Stewkley Decorating have taken the next step to offer customers further choice, by extending the spray equipment available and purchased the Wagner Evo Decorator Airless system. A compact solution for small / medium airless applications. Easy to operate and will spray emulsions, acrylics and smooth masonry paint.
The Evo Decorator is robust and is a trade machine.
This system will complement my existing hand held machine, and will now enable the spraying of virtually everything in and outside a domestic home, where relevant.

Spraying is a faster and higher quality finish than brush or roller, but requires time to mask areas and clean equipment so smaller areas wouldn't be ideal. Labour costs will be reduced when spraying larger areas, for example a hallway with a number of doors over several floors.
First day of this years show appeared to be even busier than last year, with few remaining spaces in my usual car park outside the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. My main focus was to see the spray equipment on show, which resulted in the above purchase. Other purchases included frog tape, Purdy brushes, workwear trousers, tack cloths, paint & go plus a few freebies.
Video evidence of the X Zero brush releasing a fuller and consistent flow of paint against a leading competitor was impressive.
I did try it out for myself briefly and it seemed very good and easy to use.
Product Test (20/11): Hand paint 2 x doors by brush. Pro Dec X Zero vs Purdy XL Elite Sprig...
Result - no contest!
Both performed in terms of ease of use, ability to spread and lay off paint effectively and quickly but what often separates the "boys from the men", is how many bristles are shed. So there is only one winner, and it's no surprise to learn...
Bristles lost; Pro Dec 26, Purdy 0. This is why it's safer to pay for quality tried and trusted brushes and not pay for any pretenders. There is one more brush to try out, so will it do any better? Kana lost 2 bristles, performed very well and is good value so will be happy to use these along with Purdy, Hamilton, Wooster & Harris.
