What's New in Graco Big Rig Paint Sprayers

By Kevin Malone

In 1958, the Gray Company (which later became Graco) made the first airless paint sprayer. By ensuring even coatings, this innovation revolutionized the way contractors paint, saving them hours of labor. For jobs requiring only simple hand painting and rolling, this change expanded the ground painters could cover in a day. Instead of expending a lot of energy coating small areas, contractors could expand their reach and schedules to include higher-volume work.

Over the years, new Graco big rig paint sprayers have been unveiled, from large hydraulic models to the company's latest cordless finishing sprayer. Each type met a specific need for painters in commercial and residential industries.

Graco's new family of GH Big Rig gas hydraulic sprayers is designed for contractors who need high performance for large jobs. Look no further than Graco's Big Rig paint sprayers if you need a commercial or industrial hydraulic paint sprayer.

GH Big Rigs: A Contractor's Choice

GH Big Rig gas hydraulic sprayers are seen as go-to products for busy contractors for various reasons. One reason is dependability. Gas sprayers are self-sufficient and do not need electricity or a compressor. They are also highly portable, have higher production rates, and are better at handling heavier and thicker coatings.

Graco Big Rig paint sprayers come in various models to help every contractor that requires different performance points and coating types. When you buy a new Graco Big Rig, you have the peace of mind offered by a complete 3-year warranty.
