I think this is a all in one unit

Hoping maybe Josh will recognize it

They were talking about an electric sprayer and I found this one for sale where I travel. I think this is what this is.

Sacsr..that's a HVLP...(high volume low pressure) ..Unit ..I've owned a hvlp for about 10 yrs.I've sprayed 4-5 fullsize tractors...lots of stain and poly(woodworking)..and a couple hit-miss engines..Not much over spray..I'm sure that appolo is a much better system than the one i own mine is a cambell housefield..Got to watch if the gun has not been cleaned out right..

Those are expensive units! $800 on ebay. One upside over a shop compressor is there is likely no air tank involved to build up moisture, and likely oil-less also. Much cleaner/drier air for painting.

I really don't know anything about the system, but I would want to run the compressor a good 15 minutes to 1/2 an hour before I would be willing to buy it. If the motor or compressor have issues, that's long enough for them to show up. The gun will be fine if it's been cleaned right.

These are great systems for general painting. The gun is what makes the difference in the quality of your paint job, along with prep and other things. We used to have one a few years ago and I loves painting with it, but all I painted was our finished work. Scott, I would try it and you can always sell it to someone if you don't like it. Good Luck..

If the gun has not been cleaned right ...between uses it could be worse than any bomb/spray can you ever used..I loaned my sprayer out to a buddy..that did not clean it as good as needed..said he did,,but that was not the deal...It took lots of acetone and scrubbing to get the sprayer cleaned back -up..i'l never loan it again..I gave close to $400 for mine 10 years ago..HF has one listed ..for about a hundread...they can be dialed from almost airbrush to flat laying it on..

You might better check with the local police and see if someone had one less than they remember.
No one gives stuff away if they know what it's worth... Approaching " to good to be true" status here.

Those are almost like a Vacuum motor with big air volume. Eastwood used to push them pretty hard years ago, and still have some refined systems avail. Their guns used to take the big hose all the way to gun and looked bulky to use I thought. Newer ones have smaller hoses. As noted High Volume, Low Pressure and not much overspray. Have never seen one or it's finish cept in the Eastwood books they show them using it on their project rods. makes a bigger softer band of paint while applying looks like.
