Excellent hopper gun for your do it yourself projects April 16 2007
By majs - Published on
I was finishing part of our upstairs and needed a way to texture my walls. I had a 5 gal biscuit air compressor (porter cable) and it was going to cost me $45 to rent a hopper gun from the store. I seached the internet to see how much it is to purchase my own hopper gun and they go for about $70 to $150.

At first I thought about just getting one of the other hopper guns but I search the web some more and almost decided to get the homax texture that gets added to paint. I did some more searches and thought about using the orange peal cans that homax sells, then I saw this texure sprayer.

I'm writing this review because I did not see any here at amazon. I think this is an excellent texture gun. It's light and the optional 3 liter hopper can has a lid. That'll be very useful when you're doing ceilings, especially vaulted ones where you have to keep your other hand on the ladder.

I did not use my 3 liter hopper can on my latest project. I ended up getting the pre-mixed mud jugs for one of my rooms that had to be finished at the time. It did not clog on me using their pre-mixed texture mud.

Anyway, this thing was a blast to use. I sure am looking forward to using this thing again on the other rooms, though I'd probably mix my own mud when the time comes (its a lot cheaper). Taping sucked. Sanding sucks. But using this gun to texture was quite fun. Cleaning was easy too, just run it through water while using a brush and you're all set.

I'm glad I got this thing. :-) Now I need to paint. BTW, aside from the texture cans, this is the only texture gun I tried and used.

does not exude quality, but fills a niche June 11 2008
By Chad R. Webb - Published on
I purchased this a couple years ago to texture the ceilings in my house after scraping the popcorn off. I will say, the product does work just fine, but not sure how it would stand up to consistent use. I will also say, if you purchase the pre-mixed containers, this will be about the most expensive way to texture you will be able to find (short of hiring someone to do the texturing for you).

The pre-mixed containers do not cover very much area, and are wickedly expensive. I'd recommend getting the 3L container and mixing your own. Purchase a container or box of topping compound and thin to the consistency somewhere between pancake batter and sour cream is the recommendation I was given and seems to work well.

Later, I purchased a real hopper gun and like it much better when doing larger areas, because the hopper lasts so much longer. After getting the hopper gun, I nearly chucked this gun because of it's cheap plastic feel until I realized that it fills the gap nicely between areas that are too large to use the aerosol cans of texture (very small patches), but too small to pull out a big hopper gun (much larger mess to clean up). A good area to use this gun on is a walk-in closet or similar sized area where it's smaller size (relative to a hopper gun) is an advantage.

Good product for the DIY'er April 17 2008
By C. Stephens - Published on
A great little gun with a great little price. I was going to buy the Wagner PowerTex, but I found this little gem. I was a little skeptical of a gun that only cost about 50 bucks, but as it turns out, it worked great. I didnt buy the homax powder, but mixed my own texture. I used the USG Spray Texture QT Medium Poly (cottage cheese finish). I mixed it with 4.5 gallons of water with a mud mixing wand.
I had to practice a little on an old scrap piece of drywall a few times. I tested the psi on my compressor, nozzle adjustments, and spacing from the drywall to the gun tip. I would practice and then scrape it off with a 12 inch knife, then try again. I ended up using the 3C setting with about 40 psi and it worked fine. The spray was a little messy at first, but after turning up the psi to 40 it sprayed "cleaner". Cleanup was easy and I got about 3 rooms done in a few hours. Word to the wise, don't fill the hopper up all the way because when you tilt it to shoot the ceiling it will spill on your head. A good little sprayer considering it was going to cost me $45 to rent a sprayer at the local rental store and I got it for a few dollars more. I used mine on my finished basement and it worked out great. I recommend it to any DIY'er!

Easy to use for small projects March 2 2010
By mangomann - Published on
I found this spray gun really easy to use. I like that it sets up and cleans up so easily. It took about five minutes of practice and tinkering before I found the right setting for what I wanted to do. I did find that I needed to up the pressure from my compressor to 40-45psi from the recommended 30-35psi. The premixed texture worked fine but make sure to keep it moving into the gun. I had to keep shaking it down, especially when tilting the gun up towards the top of the wall. I didn't like the cheap plasticy construction of the gun but it worked well. Funny thing is it's hard to find a store that sells both the gun and the texture bottles. It took me a while to find both. Overall, well worth the $32 I paid for it at Home Depot.

Can't go wrong for the money June 2 2012
By Tirebyter - Published on
I am in the home repair and remodeling business, and I often have to patch drywall. I've used mine using the pre-mix wall texture and pre-mix popcorn. It gives me consistent spray jobs. About 30 lbs. PSI is what seems best to me. I've used it for whole ceiling jobs and up to 3 rooms but it's a little pricey using their pre-mix. For larger jobs it pays to buy a professional gun and large hopper. I get 10 to 15 jobs out of this gun which isn't bad for the price. It will pay for itself on the first job. When I wear one out I buy another.
