Introducing the 3300Pro SAGOLA spraygun
Hi guys, just wanted to talk you about the 3300Pro spraygun, cause it fits perfectly the needs of some of you, these are; low air consumption, low mist, high paint transfer, good spraying, light, affordable... right?
We sometimes call this a "primer" gun, but this is just when talking about big bodyshops, or just places where the 4400Xtreme is used as finish gun, but we know that there´re different customers with different needs, and in some cases there´s not really need to use the top end gun of the range, or no need almost to start with that one, you must have some medium alternatives, with good performance, and reasonable price, none of us bought an escalade as first car, I suppose... maybe some lucky guy did...
This is the gun:
1.3 - 1.4 - 1.6 - 1.8 - 2.0 - 2.2 - 2.5 - 2.8 (from basecoats to fillers... outstanding versatility)
HVLP - Over 65% paint transfer, 140g/min max paint flow, 12cfm air consumption at 2 bar
EPA - Over 65% paint transfer, 240g/min max. paint flow, 8cfm airconsumption at 2 bar
EVO - Over 65% paint trasnfer, 180g/min max. paint flow, 9cfm air consumption at 2 bar
HVLP - Lowest mist---------------------------EPA - Highest production----------------------------EVO - Highest finish
No gaskets, no maintenance (but cleaning of course), fine balance, lightweight, all chrom finish... and presented in a plastic suitcase with all the accesories.
As the price policy depends always on the country and local dealers I won´t talk about prices, just ask len for all those details, he can get a quotation from the US Sagola importer.
For us the primer is "paint", and as paint... it should be "painted", not just throwed, that´s why we use a finish gun to spray primers, crazy in someone´s mind, but not so much when they see the difference.

What is the difference between the 3300 G and the 3300 Pro? I have the G with a 1.4 tip and a 3314 HVLP air cap here now as a demo gun and I'm expecting a 4400 to arrive soon. Since I'm going to be painting this high-end 41 Buick custom car in about a month I'll probably be using the 4400.

We improved the body (did it completely new from zero), looking for better ergonomics, and without increasing the total weight we reinforced the critical areas, and made lighter some others, getting a better balance, same weight, but stronger tool. The chrom finish has a better quality, all the regulators have a better quality, the handling is quite better...
We also improved the paint packing, and the aircaps, now we have an EPA aircap able to spray more paint, a lower mist HVLP, and the new EVO, specifically made for clears and one stage paints (not bad for base, but I prefer some other options for this).
If I would have to make a difference I would say that the 3300G is a good primer gun, and if it is neccesary you can use it for finishes, and the new 3300Pro is a finish gun that can be used also for primers or fillers with, obviously, great results.
I don´t like too much the 1.4 HVLP setup for the 3300G, If you want to use primers you´ll probably see that you´re short of paint, and if you use finishes you´ll probably see that you´re short of atomization, but you know... always depends on many factors, and the paint... so just try it and let us know your comments, from that point I could try to guide you to reach the proper setup.
P.D.- For a nice custom car... 4400Xtreme, no doubt. Knowing what the paint is I could recommend you the best setup, but for most of them the Aqua+ aircap with 1.2 nozzle should be fine for the base, and the RXT02+ aircap with 1.3 nozzle for the clear.

Remember that the Aqua+ aircap is made for high color and metallics control, so it works better with low air inlet pressures; from 1,4 to 1,8bar uses to be fine, sometimes even less (in some cases even 2 bar, very few, but never more than 2 anyway).
Now that everybody is worried about the new environmental rules going on... could be a good moment to think about changing old conventional guns to high transfer, remember that this model comes in HVLP or EPA versions, all over 65% transfer, and can be used for primers, but is also available with 1.3 or 1.4 nozzle for enamels, clears...
I'm interested in the 3300Pro for use in a hanger. Small to medium jobs, panels and tail numbers. Low overspray is a must. Primary paint is Sherman Williams Jet Glo polyurethane
with enamel being used occasionally. Please let me know if available yet with price and recommended tip size. I am also open to other gun suggestions.

I'd recommend a 1.4 for the materials you're using and an HVLP cap for minimum overspray. These are available and ready to ship but are not yet online because of java script problems. You can order by phone by calling 1-888-485-5008.
Len, ask for some "EVO" aircaps, are specifically made for finishes, similar to EPA, also compliant, but with an improved atomization (also needs some more air, not too much).
I have been told that the actually finish quality of the gun itself is not very good? Is this right sagola Spain? I am little closer to purchasing one just want to know if this is true. Also is the gun lighter than the 4400?

You should check the gun by yourself, Iīm afraid that a picture or a few words wonīt make you feel the quality of the gun, what is good for some is not for others.
That is very true, but I think I am going to go for the 4100gto from Len.
When you do, please let us all know how it performs.
Hey sagola Spain is there a noticeable difference in quality, eg atomization, fan width, gun weight, between the 3300 pro with evo cap and the 4100gto tech?

Think about the 3300Pro like a general purpose spraygun that can be used for car painting (with the 1.3/EVO setup), but also for wood, industrial paint, fillers... being the 4100GTO a spraygun made specifically for automotive paint; stronger, with better atomization, and suitable for any kind of paint; clears, one stage, waterborne...
