Graco Prox17 Review Summary

The Graco ProX17, and the accompanying Graco ProX17 cart, are designed for professional spray painting. For home painting, the Graco Magnum X7 is a great option, but the Magnum ProX17 is better suited for projects involving larger areas and more complex efforts.

With a spray rate of 1.29 litres/minute, the Graco ProX17 provides powerful output. With a paint tip size of 0.04cm, the Graco ProX17 gives 20.32 – 25.4cm of coverage per stroke.

The Graco Magnum ProX17 comes with an advised yearly usage of 1135 litres, making it well-suited for both indoor and outdoor painting when maintaining or remodelling the property.

Spray painting with a consistent flow is made easier thanks to the inclusion of a metal SG3 spray gun. With a strong handheld trigger and effective swivel connector, this Graco spray gun is easy to use and keeps the hose fully functioning.

The Magnum ProX17 is suited for water-based paints and stains. With the optional addition of a conversion kit, the ProX17 can also be used for non-flammable oil-based materials. Spraying directly from a 3.78 litre (1 gallon) or 18.92 litre (5 gallon) paint can is also a possibility.
