Wagner Power Tex

Wagner_Power_TEX.JPGWagner Spray Tech, makers of the interesting new Painteater, have also recently released the Wagner Power Tex, a cool new way to apply texture to walls and ceilings. The great innovation of the Power Tex is that it has the same basic functions of a commercial grade sprayer, but it’s powered by electricity, so there’s no cumbersome compressor and hoses to deal with.

Because of this ease of use, the Power Tex is useful for small patching jobs, but according to the Wagner Spray Tech website, it is also powerful enough to do an entire room. We’ve seen the pros do it and can attest that they come with a lot of equipment. We’ve also tried the spray can method and it’s messy and very inconsistent. If the Power Tex is what Wagner says it is, it should put professional quality work in the hands of the homeowner.

The tool has an arm rest to combat fatigue and a three-point stand to assist with filling the hopper. The hopper itself can hold up to one gallon of material. The Power Tex comes with three different nozzles, each one able to create a different consistency of texture; acoustical popcorn, knockdown, or orange peel. The tool is also very affordable, retailing for anywhere between $100 and $150.
