It sounds good on paper, an easy way to paint the fence. It is not, every year I dig this out to the shed again and remember why I put it away again the last time. If you manage to get it going first time, great, it will then soon stop halfway through your work. Most likely an airlock in the pump leaving the motor whining and a dribble of paint out of the lance. Instructions say to drain the paint, refill with water, leave lance lying below the tank for an hour. Then try again, just get it working, another panel painted and the battery dies and requires a recharge.
In short this is not a time or labour saving device, you will spend more time changing the contents, cleaning pumps and charging batteries than painting the fences. Stick to brushes and paint, you'll find it far less aggravating in the end and less mess and waste!

rubbish sprayer it has no power and a very feeble and drippy nozzle the silly little battery power is not adequate. I sent it back but to be fair I received a no quibble full refund.

Spent about three hours trying to make it work could have painted fence with a brush in that time. Would not recommend it.

Genius, easy to operate, really speedy to apply paint, makes it easy to apply evenly too.
We have a lot of fence panels (about 200ft worth, plus a shed) and managed to do all of this in 90 minutes. Can't begin to imagine how long it would have taken with a brush (or the non-powered version which we had previously).
Another plus is that it's really easy to clean (much easier than the non-powered one) and to empty.
Get one if you'd like a nicely painted fence, but would rather be drinking a beer - you can do both with this bit of kit!!

The first one of these I brought the pump didn't work. The second worked fine on about 2 panels before it started clogging up. After numerous attempts at cleaning and retrying I gave up. I have just had to paint all my panels by hand and to be fair looks a much better job and way less mess. Having looked at other comments on other sites it seems this is a reugluar problem... you have been warned for me it was a gimmick and waste of time and money and very messy!!!!! I used the Ducksback product for reference.

Cuprinol FDPS Fence and Decking Power Sprayer is TOTAL RUBBISH - even the replacement would not prime on water alone. DO NOT BUY!

Please see my other review on the pump type sprayer, also by Cuprinol. I find the pump type to be quieter, cheaper and just as effective. Treat it as disposable, as, by the time is it two years old you will be swearing at it. Pipes, block, seals fail joints leak. Nuff said.
