GRACO GX21FF Airless 230v Spray Outfit
What we like about this product
Our GX21FF hopper system for the GX21 was designed and is manufactured by us, SpraymanUK. It is the only hopper system for the GX21 that you can physically swap the set up between spraying emulsion with the suction hose, to spraying wood paints with the hopper, in less than 20 seconds. Unlike inferior copies, there is no need to dismantle and remove the pump inlet and thereby potentially damaging the pump seat or loosing the ball or spring. Just disconnect one hose and connect the other. Our video below shows just how quickly and easily this can be done.
Also when in hopper mode, you have no stuck paint that you cannot use trying to maintain a siphon. So whatever volume of paint you pour into the hopper, all of it will run under gravity and into the pump.
So what is a GX21FF?
Well Its an amalgamation of a GX21 and a GXFF. What we have done is taken a Graco GX21 sprayer and added to it our SpraymanUK GX Gravity Hopper kit, together with an extra paint hose, filter and FFLP Spray Tip.
Which gives you the greater speed and power of the GX21 together with the Gravity Hopper and Fine Finish capabilities of the GXFF.
So why are we doing this?
Because here at SpraymanUK, we are always being asked which is the best machine; the GX21 or the GXFF?
Technically between the two GX sprayers, the GX21 is rated for use with to a .021" tip and the GXFF a .019". So the GX21 has more power over the GXFF to spray walls and ceilings. Whereas the GXFF is primarily intended to spray smaller areas such as wood trim and doors. Additionally the paint hose supplied with the GXFF is 3/16" bore so totally unsuitable for spraying emulsion paints. So by default the GX21 has much more flexibility.
So for spraying walls & ceilings with its bigger tip and a siphon pick up the GX21 is best. But painters love the convenience of the GXFF's gravity hopper. Also with the GXFF's hopper (so no siphon hose) and smaller paint hose, less paint is needed to initially fill the hose.
So if you take a standard GX21 and add to it our SpraymanUK GX Gravity Hopper conversion kit, along with the GXFF smaller bore 7.5-metre airless paint hose, an additional Fine Finish Low Pressure (FFLP) 310 spray tip and a 100 mesh fine finish gun filter; you end up with a GX21FF.
The package also retains all the standard accessories included in the original GX21 sprayer package. So you have the longer 15 M (1/4" bore) paint hose and a PAA515 Airless tip as well as retaining the functionality of using the GX21's syphon pickup hose when needed.
So great for emulsions and for spraying woodwork and doors etc. So now with the SpraymanUK GX21FF you have the perfect Airless Sprayer for Domestic Painters & Decorators.The best of both worlds.
That this hopper package comprises of a standard Graco GX21 Airless Sprayer. Part Number 17H218. Supplied in its original unopened packaging as originally supplied to us by Graco Europe. To which we supply a modified Graco hopper kit, along with all the additional accessories as listed. Therefore the machine is still an unmodified 17H218.
