Review Summary:

Painting a house can be an exhausting and time-consuming activity. Also, using a roller and a brush can get annoying after a while. However, the modern technology has a pretty simple solution – turbine paint sprayers. It is a device which uses high volumes of air while operating at a low pressure hence the HVLP (high volume – low pressure) label. Although some of these devices come with a premium price, they save money on a simple principle. Instead of spending hundreds and thousands of dollars on renovation, you can do it yourself for less money. Also, you’ll have a great tool to serve as an addition to your DIY kit.

The Fuji 2202 Semi-PRO 2 HVLP Spray System is one of the most cost-efficient turbine paint sprayers on the market at the moment. It offers a professional paint job, energy saving, and it comes at an affordable price. The combination of these three elements is pretty rare nowadays, and that’s why this particular unit thrives in its class. If you’re interested in finding more about this product, read on.

Fuji 2202 Semi-PRO 2 HVLP Spray System – The Basicss


This device is a great entry-level product for anyone who’s a beginner. It works on a simple principle, and you don’t need a vast knowledge about turbine systems to operate this unit. However, you should read the manual and get more insight into the features of this particular sprayer.

One of the good things about it is that you don’t need to do much preparation before you start using it. In fact, you can start it up the moment you assemble the necessary parts and start painting! It comes with its 25-feet long hose, and it weighs around 26 pounds. It doesn’t produce a lot of oversprays because the hose includes an air control valve which allows you to terminate the process as soon as you release the trigger.

The non-bleeding function is also a great advantage. It guarantees a professional paint job with even coverage and elegant finishing touches

The Features


Two stage turbine


While other units may struggle with dense materials such as latex and acrylic, it’s a piece of cake for the Fuji 2202 because the 1400W 2-stage bypass motor handles thicker materials with ease. This feature is one of the reasons why this device is suitable for both beginners and professionals. It offers more than enough power to tackle any project you want to commence.

The pattern fan control


Instead of opting for a rotating nozzle, the Fuji engineers integrated a fan control knob which lets you change the painting patterns. You can start with a small shape and gradually increase the diameter to the desired size. This method saves a lot of time, and it’s much more precise than the nozzle system. Also, it lets you regulate the concentration of paint on the surface you’re processing

The hose


This unit comes with a 25-feet long hose which is very flexible and durable due to its protective plastic isolation. The flexibility is great when it comes to reaching unusual angles, painting around the corner, and it contributes to the overall portability of the hose.

The 400cc container


The Fuji 2202 Semi-PRO 2 HVLP Spray System has a gravity cup attached to the pistol. This accessory facilitates the hassle when it comes to refills. Because 400cc isn’t a small amount of material, it doesn’t require frequent refills and it covers a pretty big surface.

The maintenance


The glory of the Fuji 2202 is that it doesn’t need a lot of maintenance because it doesn’t contain a lot of parts. All that you’ll need is clean water with some mild detergent on the side. If you’re using thin materials such as poly-disperse paints, all you have to do is run the water through the hose, and that’s it. However, if you’re using thicker materials such as latex, you might need some detergent or even mineral spirits.

The casing is made of brushed metal, so it’s very easy to clean it with a conventional rag. Follow these steps:

\

Submerge the rag into hot water

\

Drain the water from the cloth

\

Gently clean the casing (circular movement)

The non-bleed function


This function guarantees even coating and a premium finish. The non-bleed function means that there is no trapped air in the system once you release the trigger. Therefore, there’s less dripping, hiccups, and overspray. This particular accessory is one of the reasons why professional love this product.

Who Can Use This Spray Painter?


Anyone who wants a highly-functional device which offers an exceptional paint job can use this product. Whether you’re a beginner or someone who’s in the industry for decades, you’ll certainly find this unit very useful. The fully-automatic system makes it a hassle-free device, even for the amateurs. The professionals benefit from its high volume delivery. It’s both a great DIY accessory and a professional tool.

What We Didn’t Like


One of the main disadvantages of this product is its inability to control the volume of overspray, because of the fast delivery. While this isn’t a major downside, it’s worth mentioning. Also, some metal parts of the unit are prone to corrosion, so take special care of the metal elements. It won’t work well without thinning dense paint for at least 20%.

The FAQ

Is there a lot of overspray? Can I use it indoor?

There isn’t a lot of overspray, just a bit of mist, which is normal for turbine-driven sprayers. You can use it indoors, but make sure to cover the furniture and other elements with a protective foil.

Will it spray thick materials such as latex?

Yes, it will. In fact, it does a magnificent job when it comes to more adhesive materials. However, you will have to thin the paint with water. Additionally, you’ll have to buy the M-air cap set #6 (for latex in particular).

Can I use this to change the color of my car?

Yes, you can spray automotive paints with this product. But, you will have to purchase an additional air cap depending on the viscosity of the material you want to use.

Can I paint the exterior of my house with the Fuji 2202?

In theory, you can. However, because there are airless machines available on the market which are much better with larger surfaces, this wouldn’t be a good substitute.

Is this unit hard to maintain?

No, it’s not hard at all. Submerge the pistol and the supply cup in warm water for three minutes and rinse off the leftover paint from them. Make sure the parts are completely dry before turning the machine on.

What do The Users Say?


According to Amazon, it has a 4.7 rating, which is impressive! This piece of information goes to show how versatile and good this unit is. Because it’s suitable for anyone, it has a massive market of potential users. While other sprayers tend to have a few flaws, it’s quite hard to find the downsides of this product.

People who have been in the business for a while say that this model stands as a perfect solution for DIY as well as professional projects. With good maintenance and by following the instructions from the manual, you’ll enjoy this paint sprayer for years.

Customer Testimonials:

“I’ve been building furniture and cabinets for 30 years using all sorts of spray equipment. My old Titan HVLP was dying so I was looking for a reasonably priced alternative. After reading other reviews, I decided to give this Fuji a try. I’ve been more than satisfied with its performance. I needed ear protection with the Titan, but this turbine is not as loud.”
