Hi guys.
Im all new to machines so go easymon me...
Im looking at investing in a machine mainly for finish on to board etc.
Are they quite easy to use and geto grips with?
Do you put a whole room on?
How many people to operate/finish the are.
Been looking at some off currier plastering vids looks spot on.
Cheers guys and thanks for your input:RpS_thumbsup:

Alreet pal he's the man to answer this. I would suggest you spend some time with guys spaying internally before you get too involved with it internally unless you have shed loads to do and lads that can look after it.

Thats the question! @theclemo

Its either spray gypsum or spray ready mixed plasters.

We can do both but we chose to use ready mix.

Now that product and system seems to sit uncomfortably with lots of spreads.

I understand why as we ourselves looked in to airless before we got our ritmo to spray gypsum. You go with what u know.

In hindsight even though spraying mp finish through the ritmo is good, i wasted alot of time and money going along the familiar route.

Airless ready mix is the way

I used mp75 on a job once and didn't like it come the end of the job.nice to spray but for me the sets are too long.its was 11 hrs days from set up to pack up to get the finish with it that I was happy with.it was a2 million pound house not site bashing so a decent finish was needed

Agree with bobby, mp75 is nice stuff but 10 to 11 hour days to get top spec finish and the metres you need.we worked our b*ll***s of to make it work. We did at least 12 big new builds with it to give it a fare try.its defo more suited to big units and also had a couple of customers telling me it took 6weeks plus to dry

Its better to have a spray of mp75 in the morning and a set of skim in the afternoons i found.
Or like you say its relentless hard work. I never tried doin a small set in the afternoons to see if that was a quicker day
