2014 Graco Finish Pro II
Graco has released their 2014 lineup of fine finish sprayers, which includes improved 395 and 595 versions of the legendary Finish Pro air assisted sprayers. Topcoat began testing the 395 Finish Pro II several months prior to its release, and we were able to provide some practical input to influence the final incarnation.
The new Finish Pro series includes some key new features that the previous generation lacked.
Most importantly, trigger activated compressors, and the inclusion of flat (AAF style) tip conversion kits. The hose sets are thinner diameter and lighter, and also now sheathed. Graco has also added more ergonomical full air control at the gun with a newly designed internal air valve.
When operating in air assisted mode, the air compressor only runs while the trigger on the gun is engaged. This saves trips back and forth to the pump to turn the compressor on and off in between rounds, and makes spraying a more peaceful experience. Improved air control on the G40 means you can crank the air at the pump, and dial it with precision at the gun.
What we Expect these Improvements to do:
- reduce maintenance on compressor
- prolong compressor life
- produce cooler, drier air
- improve user experience (quieter)
- convenience: full control at the gun
All of this reduces the amount of foot traffic happening in the spray zone, which is better for the operator and the finished product.
Graco is now accepting orders and shipping these units.
We are told that prices are expected to be in the $2500 range for the 395 Finish Pro II and in the $3000-3500 range for the 595 version.
