It has been fingering throughout the pattern. The product I am spraying is called breakthrough. Also, I tried the flat tip conversion kit and I like it much better than the racx. The flat tip it came with was the AAM309. Is that the flat tip size you guys recommend?

At my work I use a Kremlin 20:25 with an xcite gun and got this setup for doing side work at home. It’s set up with the RAC FF aircap. Is the air supposed to run constantly out of the gun when no trigger is pulled? It shuts off about half trigger, then comes back on at 3/4 trigger like normal. Also, I know the compressor never shuts off on this model, but is it supposed to sound like a gas lawnmower? I’m surprised how loud it is?
Thanks a lot.

I recently purchased a 395 and was given the same info by a Graco rep that Scott received. Only use flat tip with lawyers, clears etc, compressor at full throttle and PSI 1200. Were the specifications you suggested for the flat tip or reversible? Does it matter? We are taking it into the field for the first time and will be spraying mouldings and doors in a large custom home using SW Pro Classic water based/alkyd as well. We Would like to use the reversible with product not reduced. Is this ok? Should we go up in tip size from 211?

Thank you for your helpful feed back.
I’ll give the flat top a try tomorrow. I still wonder though, why I’m getting load up on the right side of the tip so quickly using the 210 fine finishing tip.
Many thanks, Scott Kesler

You may have to reduce material a bit more, as there is a screen on the backside of the tip housing. We keep a toothbrush in a small cup of water handy to keep the tip area clean. When you stop for any amount of time, wrap a wet rag over it. Settings should be 32 on air at the compressor (fine tune at gun) and probably 1200-ish fluid. Let us know if these things help.

I’m using Pro Classic acrylic/alkyd at 1200 psi with compressor on full throttle which is what the Greco rep recommended. The rep. said not to use the flat tip , as it was not intended for heaver material.
any suggestions? I would also appreciate your advice on psi and compressor settings for this product. Thanks,Scott K.

Any thoughts about using 100 feet of hose with this pump? We also will be spraying pro classic on trim and doors. Any recommendations on the size of a flat tip to use? Thanks for all of the information.

There isn’t a spitting issue with the G40. Sometimes a reviewer will put out info based on a flukey situation, that may have been the situation here. Fortunately, you’ve found the right place, we probably have more experience with aaa than most anyone in the industry. The bigger issue that has been reported and observed with the G40 gun is clogging at the tip, particularly with latex and waterbornes. Graco has remedied this situation by including a flat tip conversion with the FPII. The flat tip style rarely if ever clogs. Bottom line, spitting shouldn’t be an issue for you. Let us know if we can help you with any other questions about this rig or other tools/products.
