Are Titan paint sprayers any good?
If you spray less than 100 gallons of paint per week, the Titan 440 Impact airless sprayer is a good choice for a painting business or occasional DIY work. For the price I paid, I feel like it’s a good deal considering the versatility of the unit.

The winner here is Graco, at least with the two sprayers I own. Performance wise, the Contractor and RX-80 spray guns by both companies are great, but the filters in the gun and manifold of my Graco sprayers are a lot faster to disassemble and clean than Titan.

Do you need to thin paint for airless sprayer?
They’re extremely viscous, so whenever you spray them with a handheld, HVLP, or small airless sprayer, you need to thin them down. That’s true when you’re using anything other than a big airless unit. If you’re using a handheld or HVLP system to paint, you’re probably going to have to use as much as 20-30% water.
