Wagner TurboRoll


UPDATE: Our full review of the TurboRoll is posted here.

Wagner Spray Tech, the people who brought us the PaintEater and the Paint Crew Plus have recently come out with the TurboRoll, a battery operated paint roller that looks like a cross between a traditional paint roller and the largest hypodermic needle you've ever seen. The principal behind the tool is simple; fill the stem with paint, adjust the telescoping handle to the desired length (up to 8') and roll your paint, hitting a little thumb control to flow more paint to the roller head when needed.

According to Wagner, the TurboRoll can hold enough paint to handle a 70 square feet and that it can go for about 15 gallons before you have to change the 4 AA batteries. There is also a manual override, if you want to switch to the more traditional way of doing things.

If the TurboRoll works as advertised, we could see it taking a lot of time off of paint rolling which could easily make it worth the $40 asking price.
