Pretty standard tools if you do a lot of painting. I bought one of these guys when I had to repaint a couple house interiors. There's more work in the setup (taping off, preventing overspray), but man...once you get going it's damn fast.

She's outside, not worried about overspray, and can go really quick.

Painting contractor here.

100% do this task yourself. Ive been on another thread talking about the Wagner sprayer with some very unhappy customers. I would advise against it. You will 100% want to spray your fence. Just labor alone you'll be so thankful you did. If you choose to brush and roll, assuming your fence is decent sized, it will be a long task and you'll be miserable 1/2 the way through.

My advice...2 options

  1. Rent a sprayer from Home Depot. Spray your fence with that big sprayer you rented in the late morning and be enjoying lemonade by late afternoon.
  2. Purchase a modest priced Graco sprayer. Graco is a leading industry brand. They make homeowner quality sprayers in the $200-$300 price range. These sprayers aren't designed to be used heavily, like by a contractor. General life span is 30-100 gallons depending on if you keep it cleaned and filled with pump solution between uses and how thick of products you are running through it. For many homeowners that is long enough to last them 5-20 years however. I'd recommend this one for a homeowner in the market for a sprayer.

    Prior to any painting, look up Paint Life TV on Youtube. He is formerly known as "The Idaho Painter". This guy is the #1 painting channel on youtube and has 600+ videos. He has plenty of videos on spraying. Watch a few of his videos before you get started. How to prime the sprayer, how to clean after use. How to actually spray properly. Get a bit comfortable watching exactly what you're about to do before you get the sprayer in your yard that morning and things will run smooth for you.

    Hope this helps.

I have this one and it has not only been easy to use, but has payed for itself in labor, and time savings after just a couple uses. I highly recommend it.
