Graco Mark V Sprayer Models & Features
Each of the different models of the Graco Mark V has their own unique features, so let’s run through each of them separately.
The Graco Mark V Standard Series Airless Sprayer
The most basic model in the range, but none the less an absolute powerhouse.
- All New MaxPower 5000w Brushless Motor – With this maintenance free, hidden away motor you’ll never have the change brushes again. The brushless motor provides increased performance & better reliability.
- The Graco Advantage Drive System – Graco’s own drive system ensures long life and much quieter operating noise (Around 91dBa from 1 meter).

- Easy Servicing – With the MaxFlo+ system, it’s incredibly durable and easy to service so less time in the workshop and more time spraying.

- Extra 50ft of hose – The IronMan series comes supplied with an additional 50ft of hose.
Other Important Features To Note
One of our favorites and best features about the Graco Mark V range is the digital SmartControl-E technology. It continuously monitors how you’re spraying and adjusts the setup in under a second to ensure you’re spraying at maximum efficiency with perfect results.
Even with multiple guns attached to the Mark V, the SmartControl technology will adjust accordingly to delivery to perfect spray, every time.
