Kremlin Xcite compared to C.A.T. Cougar?1/3
We currently use three C.A.T. Cougar guns and aren't unhappy with them, but one of them has gotten old enough and beat up enough that we may be replacing it soon.
Of course any time you're swapping spray guns or pumps, Kremlin is part of the conversation.
Has anyone sprayed both the Kremlin Xcite guns and the C.A.T. Cougar, such that they could give me real world info on how they performed?
I'm particularly curious if they've found the Kremline Xcite to give a tangibly better transfer efficiency, and if it's simpler to keep clean, setup, use.
I don't intend, at this point, to swap pumps. I think our pumps are fine, even the old one.
I've owned both and after using the kremlin excite guns at work with kremlin pumps I ended up upgrading to the excite gun on my personal CAT 15:1 pump I have at home... I had the bobcat gun... never looked back... balance,feel, spray pattern... easier to breakdown IMO.. much better option.... The little CAT pump is a fine machine... if my personal pump were to have some sort of catastrophic failure i'd possible buy again.... I've rebuilt the lower many times as well as serviced the upper seals and magnets a couple times the past 12 years...Sooner or later it will need a cylinder.... may choose to repair or start over.
Thanks Shane, that's helpful.
I'll see what I can do to get one in my hands and look at it. Might be worth upgrading all three of them.
be sure you try out the new binks aa gun, superlight trigger, great pattern and good atomization
with the cat guns they only offer a delrin seat, plastic and ifyou get something abrasive you always
the cougar gun was one of the originals put out by cat, heavy, but a pretty robust gun
