Editor's Review:

by Chris A. Minick

review date: August 1, 1999

Pros: The HV 3000 has a convenient built-in hose-storage rack on the turbine, and an interchangeable fluid nozzle and fluid needle are supplied. The system also has an air-reducing valve to regulate atomization pressure.

Cons: The air hose on the HV 3000 is located at the top of the gun, making the unit awkward to use. The trigger is located too far forward for comfortable use, and a squared-off grip adds to the discomfort. The air hose spews a high concentration of plasticizer vapors during use. The air cap causes an irregular spray pattern, and the gun produces a large volume of overspray. Overall, the unit has poor transfer efficiency. The spray-gun cup of the unit tested was corroded out of the package.
