    The first time I used my Sidekick (house exterior) it dripped a lot more than I thought it should, right at the point where the roller clips onto the handle. Still worked, but I had to be really careful not to have that side down. After taking a close look at the assembly schematic, I realized Wagner had failed to include the grey seal that goes on the handle arm at this spot. Bought 2 seal/gromet sets from eReplacement Parts, which completely fixed the problem. I also bought the 3″ trim roller attachment, which works great.
    Overall, I’m (now) really happy with this tool. However, keep in mind that it’s a little heavy with a roller and 16′ hose both loaded with paint. Even so, it made the house siding job go quicker than constantly going up and down the ladder. Well worth the price.

  2. Hi, I’m new to your blog, and I love this series! Also, congratulations!

    I do have a question. When do you cut in around trim, ceilings, baseboards, etc.? Do you roll a wall then cut in, or roll all the walls then go back with a brush after?


  3. I am assuming you cant put a pole on this? Is that correct?

    1. You actually can! There’s a spot on the end of the handle that accepts standard extension poles. The hose enters the handle through the side, so a pole wouldn’t affect it at all.
