    Think this would work well for gelcoat application?

    Nice review John. Any reason you went with the bottom feed instead of the top feed?

    We have owned 6 of these. Yeah very quiet for the 1st couple weeks then it WILL get loud as hell and VERY ear piercing. The older units never did this but these new units with the new heat vents do. The reason for the new vents is because the older q4 used to overheat all the time.

    So the heat from the q4 unit doesn’t dry the paint..? Like you said spray guns can do if used with a hot air compressor source.. seams identical

    Thanks for sharing. Apart from being very quiet, which is nice, this is a standard HVLP system. As with all spray systems, the devil is in the cleaning of the system and for the DIYer, it's better to buy a spray can for the final coat.

    I've had my Fuji hvlp for 8 years and I still love it, the whip hose is great! Keep it clean after each use and it will last… worth every dollar! Great review 👍

    Is there a major difference between the Q4 Platinum and the older Q4 Gold?

    Bottom: Suction Fed and Top: Gravity Fed. Suction fed is very old technology, it works, but gravity fed spray guns both conventional and HVLP are what today's auto-refinish / collision paint technicians use to paint your cars.

    Thanks for the detailed overview. I ordered the titan capspray but it looks to be the equivalent of your fuji. Do you spray both oil and water base from the same gun?

    Do not use this for latex, this is more ideal for smaller projects with oil finishes or lacquer paints. A cheap airless will work better for latex with a fine finish tip. If you have larger projects everyday buy an air assisted airless for oil based, and a good airless for latex projects.

    Great concept but I need to use with a generator or a battery source to power it on the go anywhere. please what is the rated wattage it pulls?

    I'm sorry. For that kind of money, I would find a used Kremlin. Which most all professional cabinet shops use and I use in my finish department. Kremlin's can run off of pancake compressor. For the hobbyist or diy person I would buy the Wagner Flexio 890 which comes with two guns. But good review of the Q4.

    Harbor freight makes one sprayer that works really well and costs fractions compared to expensive ones and the overall finish is fantastic…I've used alot of top name branss and they can't compete with such a cheap product

    Very nice review. Thanks for posting. I just bought the semi pro 2 and was testing it with just water today to get a feel for it. I do have a question though: I was concerned that just running water will cause rust if you don't use mineral spirits afterwards. Is that the case or can I just run water through it and let it air-dry without concerns of it rusting? Thanks!

    Hi I've been also useing a 4 stage but was wondering should I get a 5 stage to use Pu paints . Was going to get an airless paint assist but if a 5 stage would do the trick is be delighted what do u think

    Keep eyeballing the dilution, I don't care much for the viscosity cup and have gotten pretty good about just estimating how much water to use. Looking to upgrade my sprayer this year as I like my Wagner, but would like something a little more along these lines. Good review, thanks!

    Thanks for sharing your experiences with us, John.

    Just a simple comment: at 13:03, you incorrectly identified the fluid control knob as an air control knob. The air volume is controlled by the ball valve which users normally screw onto the end of the quick disconnect. That location allows the opertor to quickly adjust the air volume when required – such as when you're wanting to reduce the amount of bounce back when spraying confined areas, such as the inside of cabinets.

    Again, thanks for sharing with us, John. By doing so, we all win!

    Thank you Sir. I have a cheap Rockler unit that I have been very happy with however; I've been thinking about stepping up my game. Fuji is at the top of my list. I'm just taking in all the info I can as you say this is an investment. Appreciate the video.

    HVLP=HIGH VOLUME (OF AIR!) WITH LOW PRESSURE.. LVLP= NEED LOW VOLUME OF AIR, MEANS BETTER EFFICIENCY WITH LOW PRESSURE! 😉
