This is the worst bit of kit I've ever bought. Cumbersome to use,heavy to operate makes the job hard work. Paint finish uneven and stripey.Now I understand why the professionals don't use it . People who advertise it ought to be banned from TV advertising. Feel like I've been mugged. It's a pity I did not have time to use it before the return period expired. I would have definitely asked for my money back… Read Full Review

20 minutes to paint a room Wow can this be true, now admittedly my brain said no way. But logic got thrown out the window, you never know new things are getting invented all the time. So my my 4 rooms went from 80 minutes to four full days. And after the second coat i realised that the streaks were not going to go away. So out with the old faithful hand roller. It seemed to do an ok job of the ceilings, but holding it up was a workout. The next trick is getting my refund. they offered me a 25%… Read Full Review

Purchased an unfortuntly tried it just outside the 30 days. Tried it last weekend and when full was too heavy for me to use after about 10 mins so my husband too over. Seemed quick but used lots of paint and left a very streaky 1st coat. After the 2nd coat it was still very streaky so had to apply a 3rd coat with a normal roller. wont be using it again and certainly would not recommend it. I have written to the company but as all things no reply. … Read Full Review

Upon pouring the paint into the roller the paint immediately started leaking/pouring out of the bottom end of the roller resulting in the floor being covered with paint, the holder tray proved to useless as there was so much paint leaking. Attempted to contine using the roller. it took forever to roll the surplus paint off the end of the roller so that we could actually begin to paint. When we did get started with whatever paint we had left in the roller it was totally uneven. Ended up… Read Full Review

I opened my 2 boxes of Paint Runner Pro, excited by the prospects of a quick & easy paint job. What I got was a mess, an awful streaked ceiling & aching arm. Placing the Runner on the provided tray while doing something else, ended up with paint all over the floor, as the flow of paint did not stop flowing once I had finished painting. Please don't waste your time & money. The only thing that was marginally good was the cutting in roller, but in the end we gave up & used our original rollers &… Read Full Review

This thing is supposed to work with gravity. It just is terrible with little capacity and messy to fill but the worst is how they made it look so good on TV. Luckily I found the Painstick dot com dot au which holds more ,uses a push down handle so you can load it with a push of the hand. Saw this device many years back and didn't buy but the staged TV show connned me. Slow to use and poor job… Read Full Review

I've only used Paint Runner for ONE room so far.
The fully loaded roller was heavy and gave me arm ache. My brother joked that it would give me muscles. He did not find it heavy though.
The paint MUST be thinned, the instructions recommend a ratio of around 3/4 paint to 1/4 water. Coverage was poor. I ended up having to use sevaral coats fo thinned paint instead of just using TWO with standard rollers.
Good news is you don't need a ladder apart from doing ceiling corners. Also you don't… Read Full Review

Bought 2 of these...complete waste of time..paint wont come out, leaves
awful seam marks..you have to water paint down so thin to get it to come out
and then it wont cover, you have to go over the walls 4 or 5 times..a load of rubbish, resorted to using ordinary rollers to finish job off.A waste of money… Read Full Review

To ensure best results while using the Paint Runner Roller you need to prime the roller before painting any surfaces. Priming is done by rolling the filled roller on a newspaper until the paint is coming out smoothly. It really does work well, and doesn't drip. Cleaning can be a bit of a pain. What I do is run it under the tap until most of the paint is out, then leave it overnight in warm water. The next day I run it under the tap again and find that this works very well.
At the moment you can… Read Full Review

Got this Paint Runner Roller and I don't rate it. Paint takes ages to come through. Paint has to be so thin to work you have to paint over and over.
Cleaning is a nightmare. you're meant to run it under a tap but it doesn't clean it even with really thin emulsion. Advice: stick to normal rollers… Read Full Review

I would recomend the Paint Runner Roller for big jobs where a consistant colour is to be used .
It can be frustrating to get the paint to flow in the first instance Diluting the paint with small amout of water speeds up the process .
The cleaning process is time consuming and would recomend that
you keep to the same colour for the whole room or have two rollers with two different paint colours to interchange… Read Full Review
