I need small texture sprayer for mostly small job not sure which one is good for that. The problem is i have to match texture in my job and i need really good sprayer where i can adjust things to match existing ceilings. So i am just interesting if someone can suggest me what brand to buy and where?

I agree the graco 1500 is a good setup for little jobs.

That depends really on what you want to accomplish. I personally wouldnt spray knockdown out of anything other than a spray rig. I would use the grayco 1500 for orangepeel though

Not to bash anyone or flame them, but i am called in quite a bit with customers asking, "how do we fix this texture that they used a portable on, it dosent look right."

Anyone i come across that uses a hopper always says the same thing, which is what you said. They have no problem.

Well i have no problem spraying out of them either. I do have a problem with getting the right look that i am supposed to out of the hoppers as my pattern is hard to remain consitant, i have to constantly mix up mud over and over again. sometimes the batches are not the same unless i use a measuring cup.

I can think of plenty of reasons to not use my portable. and plenty to use my sprayer.

Here is the only way i will use my portable. I can't reach up 8 stories with my rig. I probably should invest in a drum style machine with a air compressor pump that runs much like my spray rig. Aside from that, it is a big pain in the butt to have to wheel it around from room to room

For small jobs, you can't go wrong with a Graco 1250, its about half the cost and weight of the 1500.
