Graco Launches Ultra® and Ultra® MAX Professional Airless Handheld Sprayers

Most advanced handheld sprayers for professional paint spraying

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 6, 2017-- Graco Inc. (NYSE:GGG), a leading manufacturer of fluid handling equipment, introduces its most advanced line of airless handheld sprayers yet: the Graco Ultra and Ultra MAX airless handheld sprayers, available in corded and cordless models. The Ultra and Ultra MAX airless handheld sprayers include new features that make it easier to spray more in less time with great results.

Dan Johnson, Graco Global Product Marketing Manager for Professional Airless Handheld Sprayers, said, “The new technology and design features on the Ultra and Ultra MAX handheld sprayers truly change the game for painting contractors. They are designed to make it easier to complete small jobs in the shortest time possible while delivering a professional airless finish in a single coat without thinning.”

The new breakthrough RAC X™ FF LP Tips with SmartTip™ Technology offer the Perfect Airless Finish™, while the ProControl™ II and SmartControl™ technology enable easy motor speed adjustment and advanced pressure control for a smooth professional finish using any architectural coating at any hand speed. The DEWALT® XR Lithium Ion Battery System ensures extended and reliable spray time.

The Triax™ triple piston pump on the Ultra and Ultra MAX sprayers delivers more durable and reliable performance than any other airless handheld sprayer and provides full tip support from size .008 to .016. The ProConnect™ Pump Replacement System makes it fast and easy to replace the pump on the spot, reducing downtime. Lighter components reduce sprayer weight by 15 percent, allowing for more productive spraying with less fatigue. Finally, the FlexLiner™ Bag System allows spraying at any angle, even upside down, and makes project set-up through clean-up simple and easy.

Graco has a strong history of innovation and was the first to introduce high-pressure airless handheld sprayers in 2010. Professional end-user feedback contributed to design improvements along the way and led to the superior technology in the Ultra and Ultra MAX airless handheld sprayers. The Ultra MAX sprayer delivers superior capability by spraying all architectural coatings, including waterborne, solvent-based and flammable coatings using brushless technology, static shock protection and solvent resistance.

Made in the USA with global components, the Graco Ultra and Ultra MAX airless handhelds are now available at any global standard paint distributor. To learn more about Graco Ultra and Ultra MAX airless handheld sprayers, visit www.graco.com/UltraHH.
