Ryobi Airless Paint Sprayer Station RAP200B

 

Like most of us out there, male or female, I work for a living. Whether at home, in an office, in a factory, or any other job location, and my free time is precious to me.

So when it comes time to do work at home, I want to get the job done as quickly and efficiently as possible. I recently got a Ryobi 18 Volt 6-Piece Combo Kit. I had never had any experience with Ryobi before, but I really loved my combo kit; it got the job done and it saved me time and work. What’s not to love!?!

With another project at hand (painting), I decided to see what Ryobi had to offer. They have several items that caught my eye, but only one that I thought would do the job and do a lot more jobs in the future; the Ryobi Airless Paint Sprayer Station RAP200B.

I want to take the time to tell you why I selected this particular sprayer.

I do a lot of my research on products like you; I surf the web and look for details on the products I am looking for. When I visited the Ryobi website, a drop-down menu displayed all of their product lines and I chose “Painting Products”. This page has different products on it and the last item is a “Product Comparison Chart”. Now how cool is that!?! I looked that over and decided that the Ryobi Airless Paint Sprayer Station RAP200B has more features and covers a wider range of applications.  If I was only going to do a specific job or was only going to be doing a certain kind of painting, I might have chosen another sprayer. However, I am a “handyman” kind of guy and who knows what I might need five years from now. If I want to paint the house inside and out, I don’t want to have to go out and purchase another sprayer.

When I opened the box, it was packed really well with everything cross-sectioned off to keep it from being damaged. After getting the unit and parts out of the box, I did a video of it. I will put it below for your viewing.

 

I haven’t actually put it to the test yet. My project won’t be for a few more weeks, but I will do an update on it when I do. For now, I wanted to be sure it works, so I am going to do a video on priming it and spraying it. If I get it done, I will include it in this post.

 

Ok, here is the update. I hope it is helpful…

All-in-all, I am excited about using the Ryobi Airless Paint Station. The unit is self contained (although you can get accessories that make things even easier), and mobile. It appears to be made really well and solid, thus I am assuming that it will be around for a while. I usually take care of my tools so that they can take care of me.

Well, I hope you found this informative and be sure to check back. I will be posting more as I use the Ryobi Airless Paint Station. Then you will know the rest of the story.

Till then, Take Care,…

I Started out in 1976 trying out to sing in bands but no bands were interested in me. In 1977 I started playing guitar. The individual that was teaching me (who for now will remain anonymous) told me that I would NEVER learn how to play guitar because I had no sense of rhythm. I joined my first band in 1978 called "Dead Center" in Jacksonville, Florida. I played an Aspen guitar, black; a Les Paul copy and in 1981. I gave that guitar to the teacher who said I'd never learn to play. I wrote my first song in 1979 or '80. Over the years I have been in many bands but my passion has been songwriting. I have written well over 100 songs and though the early ones were kind of rough around the edges, I think that most of them could be dusted off and given a new facelift. Today I am still working on my songs. Currently I can play guitar, bass, keyboard, drums, harmonica, and Native American flute. The flutes that I play are ones that I made myself. My guitars are the Epiphone G-400 faded, an Ibanez RG370 DX, an Epiphone G 1275 double neck guitar. My acoustic guitars are an Alvarez 12 string and an old Kay guitar. My drum set is a Peace drum set. I do my recording on a Zoom HD16.

      Sorry for the delay, Mine primes easily, you just need to turn the pressure to its lowest setting when you turn it on, then turn the lever from prime to spray and increase the pressure from there. If that doesn’t do it, you may have to contact Ryobi for more help.
      I hope this works for you.
