Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Painting Tool Reviews

When you think of painting tool reviews you naturally come to airless sprayers. While that’s a core tool in this segment there are also drywall sanders, ladders, hoses, and other products. We checked out the Werner PD6210-4C fiberglass podium ladder as well as the Stanley Fatmax Professional Grade water hose. These tools help round out any painting professional’s tool set.

Cordless sprayers are also tested to see if they might serve well for fine finish work.

Our painting tool reviews help you understand which tools are Pro and which are more consumer-based products.
