Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) September 05, 2012
Graco Inc. (NYSE: GGG) today announced the launch of the ProShot® II cordless airless handheld sprayer. The new ProShot II professional paint sprayer includes features that make spraying small interior, exterior and specialty jobs faster and easier. The new, next generation of Graco’s handheld sprayers saves time and materials with maximum performance, reliability and professional quality finish and results.
“The ProShot II cordless sprayer delivers what painting professionals asked for – a faster, easier way to spray small jobs without compromise in quality and performance,” said Kate Grathwohl, Graco Contractor Equipment Division (CED) Worldwide Product Marketing Manager. “The ProShot II sprayer delivers on performance and quality results. Jobs that used to require using a large airless sprayer now take only minutes to complete from set-up through clean-up. The feedback we are getting from the pros is that the ProShot II handheld is a must-have tool to complete their small painting jobs.”
The new ProShot II sprayer features the ProControl™ Pressure Control System (variable pressure: 1000 – 2000 psi) that allows users to adjust the pressure to spray thin and thick materials and covers a wider variety of applications. This feature allows more control and reduced overspray at lower fluid pressure while enabling a higher production rate with thicker materials. The ProShot II sprayer also features the new Tilt- n-Spray Pendulum Suction Tube for a full range of motion while spraying up, down and sideways, just like a professional Contractor™ gun, while evacuating all of the material from the cup for fewer refills and more productive spray time. The new ProShot II sprayer is ideal for walls, ceilings, trim, doors, siding, garage doors, fences, shutters and decks.
The new ProShot II sprayer features patented and patent-pending ProSpray technology. “This technology delivers professional spray results in the palm of your hand and makes every project fast and easy from set-up through clean-up,” Grathwohl said.
The fully-repairable ProShot II cordless sprayer is available exclusively at Sherwin-Williams and supports .011 - .017 ProShot reversible tips. Included with the sprayer is a 515 ProShot Reversible Tip, 32-ounce Tilt-n-Spray Material Cup, two 20V Lithium-Ion battery packs, Pump Armor™ storage and start-up kit, pump repair kit, Sherwin-Williams® Color to Go® Adapter, Sprayer Storage Case, and more.
